Quartz durability – you might be surprised

A quartz countertop is one of the best choices for a kitchen countertop. One of the main reasons why this is the case it it’s high degree of durabilty. The quartz, granite, and marble experts at A&S Granite and Marble will tell you why.

Quartz can take the heat, so it can stay in the kitchen

Quartz is resistant to heat, but if the temperature gets to too high, you can harm your quartz countertop. The reason is in the resin. A quartz countertop is an engineered surface. Natural quartz material is integrated with an unique resin (epoxy glue) to form a countertop. A quartz countertop is made up of almost 93% quartz with the rest being the resin and pigments. The resin can only withstand temperature levels of around 150 degrees. That implies if you are taking a turn out of your oven or a hot pot from your range, you can not set it down straight on your quartz countertop. The resin will burn and might cause long-term damage. The method to prevent burning your countertop is simple. All you have to do is set hot items on a hot pad or a metal trivet. This removes the threat of burning your countertop.

Quartz is like Rocky, it can take a beating

Quartz is a strong, durable material that is ideal for hectic and even untidy households. It’s also among the greatest surface areas readily available on the market. The crafted item withstands stains, so it can fight spills and splashes from things like juice, coffee, oil, and more.

It’s also scratch-, water-, and chip-resistant. Naturally, you need to still use a cutting board to keep your quartz looking pristine for years to come.

What do you mean, pores?

The undeniable, unbeaten champ of the Permeable Test, quartz is non-porous. Quartz’s non-porous nature permits it to resist staining better than granite, marble and concrete. Quartz can fend off the harshest spills, from juice to oil to tomatoes, coffee and more.

Quartz is likewise the cleanliest of America’s most popular countertop surface areas. Its non-porous surface area implies it will not harbor germs or infections. Plus, quartz is readily available in a larger variety of colors than stone surface areas, providing all of the style of marble and all the toughness of granite, but none of the porosity.
