Many householders who fall in love with Caesarstone worktops often ask where Caesarstone is quarried. This is because they are often profoundly impressed by the gloss and symmetry of its appearance – and report that it looks quite like no other stoneware they have seen.
The truth is of course that Caesarstone worktops are not produced from quarried stone. However, neither are they the product of synthetic, artificial materials.
Caesarstone worktops are a particular brand of quartz worktop – and like all quartz worktops they are made using real quartz.
What makes quartz worktops different from quarried products such as granite worktops however is that the quartz comes in very small pieces. These pieces have to be compacted together using a special industrial machine and a small quantity of resin.
The result is a worktop which combines the intense strength of quartz – a substance second only in resilience to precious stones such as diamonds – together with the superior hermetic sealing created by the compacting process.
So impenetrable is the surface that Caesarstone worktops – unlike granite kitchen and bathroom worktops – do not require any sealing prior to use.
The special manufacturing process is also responsible for the unique and consistent aesthetic beauty of Caesarstone worktops – given that each unit is produced using the utmost precision.
This controlled refinement process also of course explains the existence of so many deliberately varying hues and patterns available in Caesarstone worktops – one of the factors which it is claimed has led over the years to this type of worktop being adopted in so many different households across Yorkshire, Cheshire and Humberside.
