About The Mineral – Quartz
Quartz is a crystallized silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is usually white, transparent or translucent. Although it can be found in other colors if it comes into contact with different minerals in the earth during its formation.
It is found either in a pure state or present in other compounds. However, because of its extreme hardness and resistance to acids, it is used to make a large variety of products that require precision and top-quality performance.
About Quartz Countertops
Engineered quartz countertops is comprised of approximately 93% natural quartz and blended with advanced polymer resins and colorfast pigments . The products are ideal for interior work surface, from kitchen worktops, countertops, bathroom worktops, vanities, wall paneling and commercial interiors.
Quartz countertops come in a variety of different colors and manufacturers. There are primarily two finishes on quartz countertops-polished and satin or honed. The honed surface is less resistant to moisture absorption but can still serve as a good surface for countertops, floors, walls and other interior finishes. Quartz is not suitable for exterior use as it’s color will fade over time.
Quartz surfaces generally do not need sealing and require minimal maintenance to keep them looking like new.
The hard, non-penetrable surface makes cleaning simple and in most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent are all that are required to maintain its luster.
