Quartz countertops are becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. Unlike granite and marble, quartz is an engineered stone made from a mixture of natural stones and resin. This manufacturing process allows the creation of a wide variety of slabs. These include quartz that mimics the look of marble or granite, completely white or black quartz, and slabs with vibrant colors such as yellow, cyan and fuchsia. This wide selection allows quartz to fit any style.
Why are there so many colors and styles of quartz to choose from?
The wide variety of quartz comes from its manufacturing process. Quartz countertops are not made of 100% quartz. In general, the glue or resin represents 7% of the whole and the remaining 92% is the natural stone fragments. Part of this 92% is quartz and the rest is filled with crushed natural stone and recycled industrial waste such as ceramic, glass, silica and mirror. Depending on the mixtures, the percentage of quartz increases or decreases. However, the amount of quartz does not affect the cost or quality of the finished product. Rather, the composition of the mixture will influence the patterns, colors and overall appearance of the stone. For example, quartz countertops with a lot of mirror flakes will tend to sparkle.
What are the advantages of a quartz countertop?
Quartz is one of the toughest materials in the world. Although it is not recommended to cut food directly on the countertop, quartz surfaces are highly resistant to scratches and bumps. In addition, the smooth surface of this material effectively prevents stains. It can be cleaned in a flash with soapy water and a clean cloth. In addition, the non-porous quality of quartz significantly reduces the growth of bacteria on the worktop.
In addition, quartz is a more environmentally friendly choice than other kitchen countertop materials. In fact, many types of quartz use a large amount of recycled material that would otherwise be difficult to recover.
