Agglomerated stone with high performance in terms of hardness. It is highly resistant to scratches, stains, dirt, water and humidity. Thanks to its absence of pores, microbial growth and the penetration of dirt into the interior is not possible.
Quartz countertops are at the forefront of the sector and respond to a demand for quality and above all design. They are manufactured from quartz particles and resins using high-pressure and high-temperature processes.
They are resistant to humidity and shocks, are very easy to clean and offer antibacterial qualities. On the other hand, some of them are not particularly resistant to heat, and direct sunlight for long and constant periods of time ends up affecting the coloring.
The designs are very varied and are growing every day, along with their performance. The price range in which we move within this type of countertops is wide and they are not exactly the cheapest option.
They are often recognized by the commercial name of the manufacturer, being the Silestone brand, one of the most popular.
