With the same level of durability as granite and concrete, quartz has high impact resistance, i.e. does not crack as easily and the added resins allow it to have cleaner cuts and more flexibility,which makes them easier to bend and shape during installation process.
Antimicrobial and Low Maintenance
Crafted of resin binders and quartz chips tinted with colour, the added resins made it nonporous and therefore does not need to be sealed. Mould, mildew and other bacteria that causes stains and odours will not be able to penetrate the non-permeable surface.
Stain and Scratch Resistant
As one of the hardest minerals in the world, quartz has a high level of resistance towards external aggressions. And with its nonporous nature, quartz resists staining much better than granite and marble. Surface stains can be removed easily with a gentle cleansing scrub.
Once available with only one polished finish, quartz countertops are now being offered in a variety of treatments such as embossed, honed, sandblasted and etc. as they can be crafted with a controlled appearance. Hence, they can have the looks and effects of glossy granite, matte limestone or textured slate as desired.
