What is Quartz?
Quartz is a man made product, combining natural quartz stone with resin to produce a durable composite.
As it is man-made, quartz is more uniform in colour and patterning.
A huge variety of colours and patterns to compliment plenty of kitchen designs.
More eco-friendly - with brands bringing out more sustainable ways to produce quartz, this can be and important factor to consider when choosing your worktops.
There are various finishes to a quartz worktops including: Polished, Suede and Honed.
How is Quartz with staining and heat?
Staining? Quartz worktops are non porous, therefore are stain resistant. However, we would reccommend cleaning a stain as soon as possible to ensure it doesn't have a last effect on your surface. We would reccomend a CIF product.
In terms of heat? Sudden changes in temperature can affect it, in the same way it would affect other stone materials. Therefore, to avoid damage we highly recommended to use trivets.
