Q Premium Natural Quartz is a natural quartz surface made by an optimal fusion of quartz and resin materials. Q is naturally beautiful yet incredibly durable. Treated and pressed, natural quartz stone is one of nature’s hardest minerals. Engineered quartz (not to be confused with Quartzite, another appealing natural stone used as counters) is a manmade product created mostly from natural materials. It’s made of 90 to 94 percent ground quartz and 6 to 10 percent resins and pigments that are combined into durable and nonporous slabs. The strength of quartz, even in a manufactured form, makes it naturally resistant to abrasion, scratches, dents, and even acids without the need for sealants. And the environmental impact of manufactured quartz is low: Quartz is an abundant material and the finished product is nontoxic and nonallergenic, and will last a lifetime, reducing the need for replacement.
Q combines sleek contemporary styling with demonstrated strength and performance. Q is scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and is offered in an array of modern colors providing a beautiful and discerning countertop solution for Homeowners, Architects, and Designers alike. Backed by a Residential Lifetime Warranty, Q’s extreme durability makes it ideal for today’s kitchen and bathroom surfaces. Q Premium Natural Quartz surfaces are the ultimate integration between natural and manufactured materials giving it superior function over granite.
