Quartz countertops is an engineered material that’s made with at least 90% quartz.
The rest consists of resins and pigments. The pigments are what make these slabs customizable – you can find some manufacturers with a wide array of color options because of this.
The resin acts as a sealant, which removes it porous state. This, in turn, makes quartz countertops immune to all sorts of destruction, including scratches, stains, and burns.
Quartz is resistant to heat, but that doesn’t mean you can put your hot pot directly on the worktop. A little crack can cost you a heavy replacement, so it is recommended to use trivets to hold your hot pots and pans.
