Quartz is manufactured from silica quartz, one of the hardest substances known to man, combined with a polymer resin. The precision manufacturing process produces slabs 30mm thick and a final product which is not only stunningly beautiful but extremely tough and durable. Quartz worktops are an excellent choice of surface for the kitchen due to their resistance to damage by heat, liquid penetration and scratching. These overall qualities allow for an easy to clean surface, providing a hygenic, low maintenance and extremely beautiful kitchen worktop.
