Neolith Mar Del Plata offers an explosion of silver veins on a dark grey riverbed of sintered stone. It is inspired in Dark Pearl granite from Brazil but it brings improved performance. Mar Del Plata offers a striking and waved vein pattern with white lines on a dark grey background. Its innovative Slate finish ensures you can see and feel the texture of the material as in natural granite. In addition to the veins and lines, the colour has random flecks which remind of the flow of waters seen in rivers.
If you are looking for a product with unique beauty and strength, Neolith Mar Del Plata ticks all the boxes. Similarly, you can choose this material due to its light-weight properties combined with resistance. Should you have accidental spillages, all you would require is a kitchen cloth and soapy water. Also, you can use other household cleaners on Neolith without the need for special products.
Furthermore, you can choose Mar Del Plata in 6mm thickness which is perfect for cladding of walls and furniture. And also in 12mm, which is the most popular thickness for worktops and work surfaces.
Use a microfiber cloth to remove dust from the surface. Clean your Neolith countertop daily if required. you can use warm water, to which a detergent can be added, ensuring grease marks are easily removed. Since detergents may contain waxes, after some washes, these can leave an oily film on the surface. You could also use a window cleaning spray from any major brand. Not only that it will recover its original sheen, but you can also use the spar daily to maintain Neolith surfaces.
Cleaning should be limited to immediately rinse the spills off the surface and dry with an absorbent cloth. For daily cleaning use only a damp cloth with water and soap. For embedded stains, pour warm water on the stain then wait till it “loosens” and finally rinse or remove with a clean cloth. Avoid using pads, rough sponges and steel wool.
TheSize recommends using a blue pad: made with soft fibres, suitable for cleaning of glass, kitchen appliance and nonstick frying pans. Do not use caustic soda or products with a pH greater than 11. If you use bleach, rinse with plenty of water and never leave it in permanent contact with the Neolith polished surface.
Avoid cleaning the surface with abrasive cleaners such as Cif Cream (Soft Scrub Cream Cleansers). Use pads, cloths, napkins and glass coasters to place cooking pots or other kitchen hardware on the surface. Never cut food directly on the counter, use a cutting or chopping board. Do not pull or drag kitchenware, pans and appliances on the counter.
Ceramic surfaces can get damaged for a variety of reasons. Most often it’s due to an impact from a heavy object such as cooking pots. Neolith Sintered stone can be repaired by previous cleaning the surfaces with acetone, allowing it to evaporate before proceeding further. We recommend contacting a professional who will mix a two-part epoxy, adding the colour to tint the epoxy to match your Neolith countertop. They will grind down the surplus resin on the edge manually to avoid damaging the surface.
