The primary part of quartz worktops is natural quartz, which is a rich mineral found in the Earth's crust. The quality of the raw quartz sand used in the manufacturing process directly impacts the final product. High-quality raw quartz sand should be sourced from reputable mines that adhere to strict quality control standards.
The resin acts as the binding agent that holds the quartz particles together in the manufacturing process. The quality of the resin directly affects the strength, durability, and overall performance of the quartz surfaces.
