Quartz Compound

The derivation of the word quartz is uncertain, but its origins can be traced back to the medieval ecclesiastical Slavic term tvurdu, meaning hard.

As it’s resistant to high temperatures, it’s used in the form of quartz sand as a raw material in glass production.

Quartz agglomerate is an innovative material, which combines silicon and quartz sands with a percentage of structural polyester resin.
The combination of these substances guarantees amazing results, which make quartz agglomerate a prestigious, quality material.

As it’s less porous than marble, it is unaffected by commonly used liquids. It’s also more stain resistant.
This makes it perfect for use in kitchens and bathrooms, and in all areas where it comes into contact with soap, water and other substances.
