Everything You Need To Know About ProQuartz
Quartz surfaces are the result of over 30 years of research and development. The end result is a beautifully engineered stone product that is both hard-wearing and stylish in any setting. Here we share everything you need to know about ProQuartz.
How are ProQuartz products made?
ProQuartz is composed of 93% natural quartz and 7% resin bonding materials which are subjected to a high-tech system of vibro-compaction under vacuum, resulting in a non-porous agglomerated stone that is exceptionally durable and aesthetically appealing.
Is the slab colour 100% the same as the sample? If not, why?
No. Slight variations in colour tone, pattern and structure may occur as quartz is a natural material and because of the slight manual intervention required in the production process.
Is ProQuartz available worldwide? Where?
Yes. In South Africa, USA, Canada, European countries such as Germany, UK, Spain, France, Holland and in the United Arab Emirates.
Are ProQuartz quartz products stronger than granite and how is this possible?
Yes. ProQuartz quartz products are twice as strong as granite, because they are industrial products strengthened by the processing technology undertaken.
Can ProQuartz quartz countertops be repaired?
ProQuartz countertops are very hard to damage. If any damage occurs you should consult with the local expert.
What is the appropriate thickness for kitchen tops and vanity tops?
ProQuartz slabs are manufactured in either 20mm or 30mm thickness and are strong enough for any domestic application. The tops can then be built up to any thickness by your fabricator to give the required aesthetic appeal.
How do I take care of my ProQuartz surface?
To retain their aesthetic appeal, simply wipe the worktops with warm water and a mild non-abrasive cleanser and rinse with clean water.
How do I maintain my ProQuartz surface?
ProQuartz quartz surfaces require minimal maintenance. They are hard and non-porous and require no sealing to retain their shine and brilliance.
Is my ProQuartz surface heat-resistant?
ProQuartz is structurally more resistant to heat than other surfaces. However, like any other stone tops, excessive heat and thermal shock may cause damage. We recommend the use of a folded cloth, a wooden board or a trivet when placing a hot cooking pan or other cooking units on the surface.
Is my ProQuartz surface scratch-resistant?
ProQuartz is substantially harder than natural stone and highly resistant to scratching. However, avoid using sharp objects such as sharp knives or screwdrivers directly onto the surface.
