What is Quartz Composite?
Quartz composite is a man-made material, composed mostly of natural quartz, one of the hardest minerals in nature. Unlike natural granite worktops or marble worktops, these engineered stone surfaces are made from a combination of quartz and a small proportion of acrylic resin or similar.
Colour can be added to the mixture along with elements such as glass or mirrored chips to produce a speckled appearance. These specially developed quartz-based surface materials are known for their sophisticated appearance, strength and durability and come in a variety of shades and finishes.

Caring for your quartz composite worktop
Quartz composite kitchen worktops are a low maintenance choice for your home.
Your daily cleaning routine involves no more than a wipe over of the worktop with warm water and a few drops of gentle antibacterial detergent with a soft cloth. Rinse the surface thoroughly before drying with a soft cloth. For best results, keep the surfaces clean and tidy throughout the day, wiping spillages as they arise.
Heavy duty cleaning with a tougher degreaser may be needed to remove dirt, grease and grime that has been allowed to build up over time. Always use a soft cloth to apply any cleaning product to the worktop, making sure ty dry the surface thoroughly afterwards.
