What is a Quartz worktop?
Quartz is a natural stone. However, a quartz worktop is an engineered stone. Usually a quartz worktop is made up of 90% natural materials, including quartz particles. Alongside crushed up marble, ceramic, silica, glass, and mirrors.
Depending on the brand of quartz worktop depends on the actual makeup of the worktop itself.
Ordinarily this 90% of “natural” product is then mixed with a polymeric or cement-based binder. Wherefore the finished quartz worktop is created. Manufacturers go into great effort to create quartz worktops that offer an array of colour and effect choices.
Why choose a Quartz Worktop
The surface of a quartz worktop is non-porous, hard wearing, resistant to heat and scratching (brand dependent). In addition to this it does not need sealing like a natural stone would.
Quartz is also an eco-friendly product. No products are purposefully extracted for its sole use. Instead all waste or by products are used to form it.
Similarly, the binding agents that are being used are becoming more and more eco-friendly.
