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
