Quartz is the second most abundant material in the earth’s crust and is one of nature’s hardest minerals.
Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone countertops formed by combining 90% ground quartz, with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. This forms a very hard granite-like surface. The appearance depends on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a smooth look. They are arguably the most durable option for kitchens.They are also some of the most eye-catching. They come in a wide variety of colours, including fire-engine red and apple green, as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams, with sparkles and veining for the look of granite or marble.
Quartz is now the leading countertop material — and with good reason.
Quartz is extremely hard and durable and non-porous. Therefore, it is stain, scratch, crack and chip resistant. It is also highly heat resistant.
With its glossy sheen and timeless beauty, Quartz has had a huge surge in popularity. A likely reason for this popularity can be traced to the advances made in designers aesthetics.
With its reasonable price point, newly improved form, and superior function, the quartz trend is here to stay.
Quartz is non-porous and does not require sealing or resealing.It is fairly effortless to maintain.To clean, use a mild soap, water, and a soft cloth.
Quartz, being non-porous, is very safe and hygienic to use for laboratories, healthcare facilities and food preparation facilities. And of course, kitchens and bathrooms in homes!
