Quartzite countertops are one product of stone used in residential and commercial kitchens as well as spare bathroom. The stands are made by mixing and compaction of natural quartz epoxy resins derived from granite, thus creating a waterproof and stain resistant surface. They are shaped and cut into standard sizes and thicknesses, but can be manufactured to custom specifications. The counters have a wide variety of colors, and present a lower cost than 100% natural stones, which reduces maintenance.
Quartzite countertops offer more choices of colors and the same glare as well as other more expensive alternatives such as granite. The plates for countertops are made of quartz crushed quartz and resin, the thickness or roughness of mineral determines its color and appearance. They do not require sealing, unlike granite, and a simple cleaning and polishing leave bright.

95% of quartzite countertops are composed of quartz beads, large and small – as the range of different crystals present in a rock salt.
The resin performs the connection
Once the quartz is extracted and a mixture of aggregates is selected, the quartz crystals are combined with a liquid resin and colorants to form slurry.
Quartzite countertops are made of dozens of colors, which are produced from the addition of colorants to quartz and before the compression and curing process of the resin binder, so that the product to obtain a consistent color.
The slurry is heated and subjected to a vibration process and then poured into molds and compacted under pressure to form a hard solid.
Standard sizing of the piece
As the quartzite pieces are manufactured counter and not drawn, they are available in large blocks, typically measuring 137 cm wide and 309 cm long. Large plates, as well as complex shapes and curvatures are possible.
Care and Maintenance
Quartzite countertops do not require frequent maintenance or polishing besides presenting impermeability to stains, oils and burns that marked permanently materials made of stones porous.
