The quartz used for worktops is manufactured by mixing natural quartz crystals (93%), together with resin and glass.
The resulting material has all the durability of quartz – one of earth’s hardest minerals – but with a more consistent quality and a reliable variety of colours.
Like granite worktops, worktops made of quartz are heat and stain resistant. They are more resistant to chipping and, as a man-made product, generally lower in price.
Polished quartz worktops are available in pale and darker natural colours, as well in brighter colours introduced during manufacturing.
At CustomMadeWorkshops, we source the quartz for our workshops from a range of manufacturers including:
