Quartz engineered (aggregate) stones combine two major ingredients: a natural mineral and glass, metal and oyster shells (the ‘filler’) and a resin (the ‘binder’), along with a range of additives. These are combined and then cast in a curing process to produce sheets of engineered stones. The main filler used in quartz-based engineered stones is quartz. In addition to this, coloured glass, oyster shells and metal are used to enhance the surface features of the stone. The proportion of quartz used varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Quantum Quartz® is made using a combination of 93% quartz, the remaining 7% is made up of resin, recycled coloured glass, oyster shells, colours and binders.Quantum Quartz offer a 10 year limited warranty.
