In recent years, the Vietnamese building materials and interior design industry has seen remarkable growth, supplying the domestic market and exporting at a high growth rate. Investment in advanced production technologies and the use of new materials, especially environmentally friendly materials, has positioned Vietnam at the forefront in the Asian region.

In the field of architectural construction and interior design, traditional materials such as natural stone, wood, and artificial stone remain popular. However, they have drawbacks, such as high production and construction costs, susceptibility to damage, warping, and mold growth, leading to high maintenance costs and negative environmental impacts.

Furthermore, these materials cannot fully meet the requirements of modern construction projects and the creativity of architects and interior designers today.

This prompted Viglacera to conduct research and invest in producing materials capable of replacing and complementing natural stone, natural wood, and artificial stone, while ensuring environmental sustainability in production and usage. Alongside other environmentally friendly materials such as AAC block, energy-saving Low-E glass, and water-saving sanitary ware, Viglacera introduced its latest product produced in Vietnam in 2023 - Sintered Stone with large dimensions up to 1600mm x 3200mm, marking a significant breakthrough in the industry.

Manufacturing Technology of Sintered Stone and Environmental Benefits

Firstly, the production process of Sintered Stone is sustainable. It is made from readily available natural materials in Vietnam, with low water and energy consumption. Notably, Viglacera's production plant utilizes clean fuel and consumes only one-third of the electricity compared to traditional methods, minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental costs.

Secondly, Sintered Stone is 100% recyclable. It can be crushed and reused without generating waste.

Thirdly, Sintered Stone is a safe material. It is widely used in interior surfaces, with high chemical resistance, waterproof properties, and no surface treatment or harmful chemicals in production. It is a safe choice for various spaces and does not contain free silica, making it suitable for high-safety applications such as kitchens.
