QUARTZ: THE BEAUTY OF UNIFORMITY
WHAT IS QUARTZ?
Quartz is the popular name for what is better termed Engineered Stone, made using natural minerals and glass, held together with a resin component. The resin can come from the oil industry, or from bio-fuel sources. Some quartz has a mirror or metallic element to give sparkle, others are very plain and smooth, and yet others emulate natural stone textures with a granular or marbled look.
QUARTZ: FROM NATURAL BEGINNINGS
Quartz for worktops is made using 93% minerals (such as quartz) and around 7% plastic resin, to create a solid and extremely robust surface. The uniformity of colour and consistency of texture in quartz is not available in nature, as these variables can be controlled in the manufacturing process. Addition of dyes during production enables creation of pure,light or vibrantly strong colours; pure whites are available in the quartz ranges that are impossible to achieve in a natural stone. Some materials even have mirror flecks or surface metallic finishes to create amazing reflective effects. The subtle patterns of natural marble or travertine can also be emulated using advanced multi-dye injectors in production.

QUARTZ: CARE & MAINTENANCE
The natural quartz in these worktops make it very resilient and resistent to scratching, staining and scorching. However, it is recommended to avoid excessive force or pressure because that may mar or chip the surface. Don’t worry about spills from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup, and many other common household products; just avoid harsh chemicals. And don’t worry about dropping a lit match onto your worktop; it won’t scorch. But, use trivets when placing any hot items to avoid thermal shock.
