What is white quartz made of?

White quartz is composed of 95% quartz filler (natural quartz) and 5% polymer binder resin. The ratio may vary depending on the quartz manufacturer, but it also includes a small amount of dye added to give the stone the right tone or veins (such as Calacatta Sahara, where the veins have a beige-golden color). As a rule, white quartz is tried to make with natural textures imitating natural stone.

The process of producing white quartz consists of several basic steps:
  1. Purification and preparation of quartz raw materials (quartz crushed to dust)
  2. Mixing of quartz with polymeric binders
  3. Injection of necessary pigments for coloring quartz
  4. Baking of the quartz slab in a special installation
The result is a very strong, uniformly dense slab of white quartz (slab), which looks great. This type of production allows you to get a homogeneous quality stone, unlike natural mined stone, which always have different properties.

How to choose white quartz?

In general, the choice of stone comes down to several aspects:

Choosing a color scheme

Warm or cold hues, a big or small amount of veining in a stone (texture saturation), bright contrasting textures don't always look better than a barely noticeable quiet pattern. When choosing a color stone, pay attention to what type of lighting is used in your interior, it depends on what shades will look better - cold or warm.

The choice of a specific stone manufacturer

White quartz is partially artificial material produced in factories, not mined in quarries, so the choice of manufacturer is as important as the color (design), you must ensure that you get enough material, will be provided with a warranty or replacement in case of defects.

HOW TO CHOOSE WHITE QUARTZ

White Quartz Care

Unlike marble, for example, quartz has several undeniable advantages in terms of care: 

  • Excellent resistance to stains (no porosity)
  • Homogeneous structure
  • Uniform hardness in all areas
  • Resistant to chemicals
  • Good antibacterial properties

Standard detergents and warm water can be used for cleaning quartz surfaces, but abrasives, brushes and scrapers should be avoided in order to prevent damage to the perfectly smooth, polished surface. Alkali and chlorine can also cause damage, so detergents containing these chemicals should be avoided. Unlike marble or granite, it is easy to remove grease stains or pigmented substances from the surface of quartz; quartz is virtually impermeable and contains very few pores.

White quartz can be cleaned with bleach, but as mentioned above, without chlorine. You should also remember that if your quartz has had small scratches over time, quartz is amenable to polishing and these scratches can be removed with a special treatment, thereby returning the surfaces to their original beautiful appearance.

The price of white quartz

The price of white quartz as well as any other stone is highly dependent on the brand of the stone itself, even if you choose a material from the same manufacturer. As a rule, the more interesting and unique the texture (pattern imitating natural stone), the more you will pay per square foot, while white quartz with a uniform texture will be cheaper because it is easier to produce, but does not look as winning as an imitation of natural.

In general, the prices of quartz are in the range of $60-200 per square foot, more precise information can provide you with the specialists of the selling company.

For example, the cost of a kitchen countertop for a large kitchen can range from $2,000 to $6,000, taking into account the cost of manufacturing, shipping and on-site installation.
