Unlike Granite, which is 100% natural, Quartz is a semi natural man made product. Quartz is made by mixing the natural mineral quartz with various resins, polymers & pigments. The ratio of these ingredients depends on the brand but as a general rule of thumb it’s approximately 90% quartz to 10% resins, polymers & pigments.

Advantages of Quartz

  • Quartz is 100% non porous, so it’s almost impossible to stain
  • Available in an almost unlimited choice of colours & finishes
  • Never has to be sealed like granite
