Quartz is an engineered material that is both heat and stain resistant making it a perfect choice for busy cooking spaces. The finished product is an incredible durable stone-like surface that can stand up to daily wear and tear. This engineered material does not require sealing like natural stone material such as granite and marble.
Quartz scores a seven on the Mohs Hardness Scale, compared to diamond which is a ten. Quartz is highly resistant to scratches and can be immune to a careless slip of the knife. It will also prove resistant to chipping and cracking, which will make it easier to transport and install. However, you should not overdo it, although quartz can withstand impact, edges can chip under hard impact.
Unlike granite, quartz has been certified by NSF International for use as a food preparation surface. Quartz is nonporous, making cleanup easy and preventing food and moisture from penetrating its surface – the main source of growth for harmful bacteria. This texture also makes it very safe, as it is difficult for bacteria and other pathogens to develop. It is the perfect material for moist environments like the kitchen and it will be easier to maintain.
Quartz provides a consistent look throughout the entire slab.It is available in a variety of colors, patterns and combinations. You are sure to find one that goes with the other elements of your room, whether you want a more serious monochrome appearance or more obvious color combinations. Either way, you will fall in love with the clarity, the depth and the firm feel that it offers.
