Over the past decades, natural stone materials such as granite, marble, and even concrete have become the surfaces of preference rather than the usual laminates. After quite some time, a new challenger in the form of engineered quartz came along.
This new contemporary material has a lot of applications and it can also be utilized on many things such as tiles and worktops.
While some worktops are made of pure quarried slabs, quality Quartz is created through a meticulous manufacturing process that contains about 95 percent of natural quarried quartz and 5 percent of polymer resins.
Aside from its superior reliability and durability, Quartz is also resistant to high temperatures, water, tough stains, and scratches. It has countless features and benefits for both residential and commercial properties as well!
This surface material is almost indestructible – in fact, they are highly hard-wearing that most manufacturers offer astonishing warranties that you don’t usually get with other natural stone surfaces.
Quartz is wholly non-porous and does not require any sealing. Due to its nature and treatment during its manufacture, the material prevents various liquids from penetrating the surface. This kind of surface material is also known as “low maintenance” which is easier to clean compared to other worktop surfaces that are currently available in the market.
The operation used in manufacturing this specific material has achieved full control of the colour pigmentation, which allowed better colour consistency for each slabs; resulting in a vast range of rich colours that will not fade even after a long period of time and usage.
