WHAT IS QUARTZ ENGINEERED STONE?
Quartz is one of nature’s hardest minerals. Caesarstone, our preferred Quartz surface, is composed of up to 93% quartz, and are therefore designed to last. The Quartz is combined with numerous polymers and dashes of pigments in a unique Caesarstone-patented process, and the result is a range of durable and beautiful quartz surfaces in a wide variety of colours and finishes.
Caesarstone surfaces are highly resistant to just about everything you can throw at them, refusing to crack, chip or stain. They are also more heat resistant than granite, marble and limestone – with a capacity to resist temperatures as high as 150 ̊ C. We suggest that hot pots and pans never be directly placed on the surface. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be placed on the surface under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots, or roaster ovens.
Caesarstone is available in 20mm thickness and some colours are also available in 30mm. Caesarstone can be mitred to form thicker profiles.
Maintaining their glorious looks for years to come is easy– a splash of mild detergent is all that’s required. For more stubborn stains Caesarstone’s own Cream Cleaner can be used. Caesarstone surfaces carry a 10 year limited warranty for residential applications.
