Quartz” (sometimes called Engineered Stone) is a man made slab made of 93% quartz and
7% resin to create a stone look-alike with tremendous hardness, strength and durability. The
mixture of various sizes and colors of mined quartz are mixed with advanced polymer resins and
a small amount of color is placed in a mold and compressed under 100 tonnes of pressure. This
eliminates any voids to create a totally non-porous surface that is then milled and polished in a
typical slab format.

The advantages of Quartz include strength, durability, extremely stain resistant with easy clean
up with soap & water and never needs a sealer. All Quartz products are certified for use in food
preparation areas by NSF. The price is highly competitive with natural stone.

Quartz, sand, resin: raw materials combined with knowledge and cutting edge technology to create
unique surfaces where beauty and strength are synthesised to perfection. This is QUARTZFORMS.
This innovative composite stone made of over 90% natural materials is not limited to reproducing
natural stone, but is evolving into the highest quality product in its own right. Thanks to its extreme
versatility and personality it is inspiring designers the world over. Useful particularly in kitchens and in
furniture due to its high strength and stability, QUARTZFORMS is a reference point for those striving for
perfection.

CaesarStone is the original quartz surface manufacturing company that introduced pioneering
innovation in the field of quartz surfaces. Our quartz surface product is commonly referred to
as “CaesarStone” by retailers and buyers, please make sure you ask for the authentic product that
is manufactured by CaesarStone when specifying or purchasing our quartz surfaces.

CaesarStone’s quartz surfaces are ideal for virtually any interior surface from kitchen
countertops, bathroom vanities and stairs, to wall paneling and interior furniture. CaesarStone

Quartz surfaces produced by CaesarStone are manufactured from up to 93% quartz (one of
nature’s hardest minerals) and high-quality polymer resins and pigments that are compacted
under intense vibration, vacuum, and pressure into dense, non-porous slabs. CaesarStone’s quartz
slabs are then post cured, gauged to precise thicknesses, and polished to an enduring shine. This
results in surfaces that retain the cool, tactile qualities of natural stone while offering design
freedom with almost unlimited application possibilities.
