Quartz is a manufactured product made of stone aggregate and polymers compressed under high pressure. It has the look of natural stone but requires less work to maintain. Quartz has consistent colors and patterns and is a nonporous material, so it will not need routine sealing and resealing. Quartz countertops are one of the best man-made engineered stone countertops, formed by combining about 90% ground quartz (sand a natural hard mineral) with about 8-10% plastic resins, polymers, and pigments. This forms a very hard granite-like surface. Quartz countertops with the resin binders are not porous and do not absorb spills. Salem Stone Design carries many of the top rated quartz brands to fill your challenging environment countertop needs such as children’s bathrooms, changing rooms, and countertops for businesses are high traffic locations.
Quartz can be cleaned using just a damp cloth with a mild, nonabrasive soap avoid cleaners with harsh abrasive chemicals. Quartz has a heat threshold of 150° F. Please be sure to avoid placing hot pans or metals directly on your quartz surface.
