Engineered Stone is a composite slab stone made up of approximately 90% crushed Quartz stone bound together by a polymer resin.
It may also have other materials like coloured glass, shells, metals, or mirrors added for aesthetic reasons.
It can be used in all the same places as other slab stones like Granite and Marble, but is primarily chosen for kitchen and bathroom countertops.
Engineered Stone products are sometimes preferred over natural stone products because this man-made slab stone is more resilient.
Compared to unsealed granite, it has better resistance to stains, scratching and heat.
It’s non-porous properties also make it a more hygienic choice.
Engineered Stone is typically more uniform in structure than natural stone, adding superior strength to its core values.
Don’t be misled, however by thin laminate stone over MDF or wooden benchtops – ask for solid, 100% Stone for luxury that will last.
