What is Quartz?

Quartz is the most popular material we use for kitchen worktops here at Benchmark Kitchens. It is made up of around 90% natural quartz stone mixed with pigments and polymer resins. It is manufactured through a strict process, involving mixing, moulding and pressing, curing, polishing and quality testing.

Quartz has a number of great benefits:

  • Stain and scratch resistant – extremely hard wearing surface
  • Durable – highly heat resistant, will not scratch or crack
  • Easy to maintain – don’t need treating or polishing, wipe clean with regular detergent and water
  • Easy to install – our quartz prices include templating and installation
  • Design flexibility – easy to create different shapes and designs.
