What is Quartz?
Quartz is a man-made (engineered) product commonly used for Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops. It is made from 90% pulverized quartz which is a naturally occurring extremely hard mineral. It is blended with 10% polymer resins to form a consistent slab. Depending on the level of pulverization, quartz can have a large fleck appearance or a smooth consistent color. Pigments are also added to give quartz a deep veining similar to natural stones.
Quartz is an extremely hard material and is very resistant to stains, scratches, cracks, and chips. But it is less heat resistant than Granite. Quartz is more durable and heat resistant than Marble.
It does not require sealing or resealing and comes in a wide range of colors. Quartz countertops are also very easy to maintain and easy to clean with mild soap, water, and a soft cloth.
These qualities make quartz an excellent choice for your Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops.
