WHAT IS SILESTONE ENGINEERED QUARTZ?
In addition to our 100% natural stone products, we also offer Silestone Engineered Quartz. Silestone quartz is 94% natural quartz, which is resilient yet extraordinarily hard. Silestone is also dense and non-porous, so it never needs polishing or sealing.
Silestone is extremely durable as well, resisting scratches, scorching, bacteria and stains (coffee, wine, lemon juice and olive oil clean up without a trace). Because of its anti-bacterial protection, it is an excellent surface for kitchen worktops, bathrooms, as well as floors. In addition, it comes in a variety of different shades of quartz color, offering a variety of decorative possibilities.
Silestone’s Features Include:
- Stain Resistant – it is non-porous and highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, and vinegar.
- Acid Resistant
- Scratch Resistant – as one of the hardest minerals in the world, quartz is very durable, with a high level of resistance to external aggressions.
- Impact Resistant – Silestone is more resistant than granite and other solid surfaces. This resistance is due to its quartz hardness, its polyester resin elasticity, as well as its vibro-compression system used during its production.
- Bacteriostatic Protection – Silestone’s technology is based on the use of latest generation silver ions to prevent the growth of bacteria. Silestone is the only brand that contains this unique bacteriostatic formula.
