QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS

The process to convert quartz to a slab counter top was patented
by
Breton, an Italian company, and is used by all companies
which manufacture engineered stone. This manufacturing
process uses raw quartz crystals ranging in size from coarse
grains to the size of rock salt. Once the quartz is ground and
selected, the crystals are combined with bonding agents (resin)
and color, then heated and vibro-compacted to form an
impenetrable surface. The resulting slabs are a matrix of 93%
quartz and 7% resin binders and pigments ... free of fissures and
cracks, and impervious to water, moisture, or bacteria.

Industry wide, all quartz countertops are made with 93 percent
quartz or they cannot claim the hardness, durability, or
impermeability of a true quartz surface. The prescribed mixture
results in a product that is non-porous, exceedingly durable, and
more than twice as strong as granite and less likely to break
during fabrication.
