Quartz begins as a raw naturally occurring material quarried from the earth. However, quartz is engineered prior to use on countertop surfaces. Binding agents, resins, and coloring materials may be added to to give the quartz a desired pigmentation or look as well as the sturdiness it is well known for. A quartz counter may withstand chipping and denting better than other natural stone countertops due to the flexibility afforded by the additional resins and binding agents. It is also highly scratch-resistant
Quartz is also able to withstand significantly high temperatures, which is beneficial in kitchen counter use, and it will not sustain damage even when exposed to heat up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Quartz colors range from warm and inviting tones inspired by nature to bold distinctive colors that bring energy to any room. Each color is carefully formulated to ensure the right consistency, depth, and richness to ensure that your creative designs come to life.
Fascinating and harmonizing patterns are created by adding recycled material such as glass mirrors, crystals, and other natural materials to the quartz manufacturing process.
