What Are Quartz Countertops Made Of?

Quartz is a famously recognized natural stone on our planet. Quartz is commonly used as a countertop option amongst homeowner because of its durable quality to last. This mineral from planet Earth is extremely eye-catching and it comes in a plethora of color options all which include apple green, fire engine red, earthy browns, creams, blacks, and so much more. Quartz Countertops can be made with veins like patterns which give it a similar look to that of marble and granite. Not like mined natural stone slabs, quartz is actually engineered in manufacturing companies from all over the world.

Ground quartz is 80-94 % of the entire makeup of the quartz slab. The rest of the remaining 6-20 % is known as polyester resins. These polyester resins and the ground quartz are bound together to give it a beautiful live color! Sometimes, metallic flecks and or recycled glass may be added in for design purposes. The polyester resins help the quartz with stain and scratch resistance as well as heightening its nonporous properties.

How Are Quartz Countertops Made?

Natural quartz stones or crystals are excavated and then they are ground into an aggregate or dust-like particles that are fused with binding resins under extreme heat & pressure. This mining process occurs to help form the solid slab. Later down this process of creation, pigments are added to accentuate certain colors in the quartz countertop and the finalized product. Our Richmond quartz countertop installation is not made from solid quartz that would be similar to saying that all the cars in the lot are Nissans. A very small amount of quartz is a cement or polymeric based binder. The rest is crushed marble, natural stone, and granite waste like glass, mirrors, silica etc. Quartz gets its solid look and feel from combing all of the mentioned materials.

  • 15/10 would highly recommend giving them a try!

    “We had such an amazing experience with Capitol Granite! I was clueless about countertop options. Serena helped guide me along and gave me very helpful tips and advice to help us choose our final option. We were kind of in a time crunch and needed our countertops done quickly. Unfortunately we did not end up choosing the quartz that had the quick turn around, but Serena was able to get our countertops expedited for us! We also chose a type of granite that they were currently out of stock and they took us to the company that they buy their granite from and let us pick which lot we wanted to use! I cannot say enough good things about this company! They went above and beyond for us! I am so thankful that we used them! 15/10 would highly recommend giving them a try!”
