Natural quartz is a mineral that is found in the earth's surface. It is from this mineral and other components that quartz countertops are made. While not a natural stone countertop option, quartz is incredibly popular among homeowners. This guide will help you learn how quartz is made into your countertop, backsplash or other home surfaces.
Quartz countertops, much like granite countertops, marble countertops and others, begin their journey at quarries all around the world. Quartz can be found everywhere from Brazil to India and even the United States. Clusters of quartz are extracted from the ground and weighed to get a roughly 90 percent quartz content (depending on specific brands) before being combined with other materials. Different brands, such as Caesarstone, Silestone, Cambria and others are likely to have slight differences in the exact percentage of quartz content, although the numbers will always be close to 90 percent.
The crushed quartz is combined with polyester resins, pigments and more. Because they contain high amounts of quartz, these engineered stone slabs can replicate the look of natural stone countertops.
After the materials are mixed together, they are compacted by significant amounts of pressure. This forms the quartz slabs. It is during this part of the manufacturing process that quartz becomes non-porous, meaning that water and other liquids cannot sink into the material.
Lastly, the quartz is cured in kilns and made to have a permanent seal. The final step of the process is applying the finish to the slab, whether it is a polished finish or another option.
