We are able to offer quartz surfaces from a range of brands. Click on the links below for more information and colour galleries.
Quartzstone is crystallised silicon dioxide (SiO2), which, when combined with stain resistant polymers, produces a hard wearing, non-porous material. The primary advantage of this property is that, unlike natural stone products (e.g. marble, granite, limestone and wood), quartzstone does not require a sealant that must be periodically reapplied. The colour is also consistent throughout.
Quartzstone can also have added Microban, an antibacterial application which is built into the stone during the manufacturing process. Due to these attributes, quartzstone can be resistant to scratches, abrasion, and everyday stains like tea, coffee and cooking oils.
As with all work surfaces, we recommend the use of chopping boards and trivets for hot pans. A simple wipe down is sufficient, followed with a dry cloth. For stubborn stains, a small amount of Cif Cream, Q-Force or Q-Action on the mark followed with a Scotch-Brite scourer will remove it. Products containing oils or powders may leave residue. Repetitive use of abrasive scrub/cleaners may dull quartzstones’ finish. Use of oven/grill cleaner may discolor Quartz Stone and should be avoided. Repetitive exposure to extreme heat may damage quartzstone finish.
Due to our high quality, Seven Seas is an Approved Fabricator for Silestone work surfaces, and as such we are able to offer their full 10 year warranty.
