How to choose a good quality quartz?
There are a lot of factors that are involved in choosing your calacattalaza quartz countertop like color, thickness but none of them are important enough than the quality of the material. Choosing poor Stone Countertopscan cost you more to repair than what you spend on purchasing a higher quality material.
The quality of quartz mainly depends on the quality of the resins and natural stone used and their ratios. Resins are what holds the whole material together, low quality resins do not last and even can be hazardous to your health. Good quality resins can last for decades and have come with certifications. It’s usually difficult to determine their quality by looking at a sample, but you can always ask for certifications and the source of the material.
The proportionality of resins and natural stone is a determining factor in the quality of your countertop. According to the standards of the Italian company, a good quality quartz is formed from more than 90% of natural quartz and can go up to 93% for the best quality.
Another important point is the consistency of texture and color throughout the quartz slab. That is, a good quality quartz should have a uniform texture and color from top to bottom of the slab. To verify this you can examine the edges of the quartz slab, if they have the same aggregates, i.e. the material is of good quality.
Another key factor in determining the quality of quartz is the polishing consistency of the slab. A good quality quartz if you look at it you should see a uniform and even shine. On the other hand, a poor quality has a more stained shine, due to the poor quality of the resins used.
