Its structural composition combines harder natural materials such as 94% siliceous sand and quartz (one of the hardest of natural minerals) and 6% structural polyester resins.
The result is a hard, resistant material, almost comparable to diamonds. It’s unaffected by contact with liquids (0.015%) and absolutely innovative.

The specific properties of quartz agglomerate make it resistant to scratching, shock and the most common household cleansers, and it’s also hygienic. These features make it preferable to a marble top.

Certainly. Its absence of pores and impermeable nature prevent the spread of germs and bacteria, thus making it hygienic.

As quartz agglomerate is a non-absorbent material, it prevents the spread of germs and bacteria, which makes it particularly suitable for food preparation surfaces in the kitchen. It therefore isn’t harmful for the health.

Yes, you certainly would. In spite of its resistance to high temperatures, it’s advisable to protect it with a trivet to avoid direct contact. Hot objects or naked flames in contact with these surfaces could cause permanent staining due to the burning of the resin, or worse, breakage due to thermal shock.

As well as polished or opaque surfaces, it’s also possible to have other types of finish, depending on the materials selected.

The measurements of the agglomerate slabs vary on the basis of the machines used by the manufacturer. The average size is 300 x 140 cm. The classic thicknesses are 1.2 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm. By applying special gluing techniques, however, it’s possible to obtain made to measure thicknesses such as 4, 5, and 6 cm, etc. The perfection of the processing (cutting and pasting) makes the joint almost invisible. The greater thicknesses are supported using a resistant but lightweight material, such as expanded high density polyurethane or aluminium profiles.

No, that won’t be possible, because the agglomerates are produced in batches. It’s often possible to find similar slabs in the warehouse, but they’ll never be perfectly identical.
That’s possible. When it’s necessary to place two items side by side and they have different thicknesses, workshop calibration takes place to resolve a 1 or 2 mm difference in thickness (which is normally tolerated).
Definitely not. Certain products could ruin the original polish of the material. To clean the worktop, we advise against using cleansers containing bleach or with basic pH, hydrofluoric acid or caustic soda. We suggest that these surfaces be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened with water and neutral cleansers. For more resistant stains, slightly more aggressive acid-based cleansers may be used.
Water repellent treatment is only used in non-polished slabs. Polished quartz agglomerate doesn’t need this type of treatment, as it’s naturally impermeable.
