Springfield, IL Quartz Countertops
Quartz as the material of choice made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz countertops are arguably the most durable option for kitchen surfaces. They are also some of the most eye-catching materials to be used for this purpose. They come in a wide variety of colors, including apple green, earthy brown, fire-engine red, coal black, and different shades of cream, with sparkles and veining for achieving the look of granite or marble. However, unlike natural-stone slabs, which are mined, these slabs are engineered in a factory. Their primary ingredient is ground quartz (about 90-95 percent), combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments to give it color.
In some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix of natural-quartz crystals mined and then ground into a dust or an aggregate fused with resin binders under intense heat and pressure to form a solid slab. Pigments added during the process impart color to the countertop. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant and non-porous, so they never need to be sealed. This is in comparison with granite, which typically requires a new protective top coat at least once a year.
Furthermore, this durability also means that unlike other types of stone countertops, quartz resists staining or corrosion from cooking oils, liquids, and most household cleaning products. Therefore, spills are easier to clean on quartz countertops than on others. Quartz can be damaged by excessive heat, however, so homeowners should use trivets or heating pads.
Advantages of Quartz Countertops
Unlike natural stone or wood, quartz never needs to be sealed. It only needs wiping with soapy water for daily upkeep. Surface stains can be removed with a gentle cleansing scrub. Scouring pads, which can dull the surface, and harsh chemicals that could break down the bonds between the quartz and resins should be avoided.
Resin binders make quartz counters nonporous, so stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew cannot penetrate the surface.
Some manufacturers offer extra-large slabs for uninterrupted runs of countertop. However, even with standard slabs, typically 60 by 120 inches, the seams can be almost imperceptible. Added resins allow cleaner cuts without chipping as stone does. The resins also make quartz more flexible than natural stone, allowing fabricators to bend and shape it into sinks or the sides of a curved island. Furthermore, it is versatile enough to be used on floors and walls. Fabricators can even cut the slabs into standard tile sizes. Your Provider of Quality Quartz Countertops
