What Are Mineral Surfaces?

These new mineral surfaces are designed to replace traditional quartz surfaces and represent a significant advancement in material technology. These surfaces are engineered to offer improved performance, sustainability, and safety. Here are some key aspects of these next-generation mineral surfaces:

Reduced Crystalline Silica Content

One of the most notable features of these new surfaces is their reduced crystalline silica content. Traditional quartz surfaces can contain high levels of crystalline silica, which can pose health risks during manufacturing and installation. The new mineral surfaces contain significantly less crystalline silica—less than 40%, and in some cases, less than 10%. This reduction helps enhance safety for workers and consumers.

Enhanced Sustainability

The next-generation mineral surfaces are designed with sustainability in mind. They incorporate higher levels of recycled content, reducing the reliance on virgin raw materials and minimizing environmental impact. This eco-friendly approach supports greener production processes and contributes to a healthier planet.

Superior Durability

These new surfaces are incredibly durable, offering enhanced hardness and strength compared to natural stones like marble and granite. They are engineered to withstand heavy use, making them ideal for both residential and commercial applications. The durability ensures long-lasting performance, reducing the need for frequent replacements and thus contributing to sustainability.

Nonporous and Hygienic

The surfaces are nonporous, meaning they do not absorb liquids. This quality makes them highly resistant to stains and easy to clean, requiring only soap and water for maintenance. The nonporous nature also inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew, ensuring a hygienic and sanitary surface ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.

Heat and Scratch Resistance

These mineral surfaces offer impressive heat resistance, though the use of trivets is recommended for very high temperatures to prevent damage. They also boast excellent scratch resistance, making them less susceptible to scrapes and scuffs from everyday use.

Easy Installation and Customization

The surfaces are designed to be easy to template, install, and customize by professionals. This ease of installation can lead to quicker project turnaround times and more precise fitting, enhancing the overall customer experience.

Environmentally Friendly

Certified for their durability and low maintenance requirements, these surfaces support a healthier environment and better use of material resources. Their long lifespan and minimal maintenance needs further contribute to their eco-friendly credentials.

In summary, the new mineral surfaces replacing quartz offer a combination of improved safety, enhanced sustainability, superior durability, and excellent hygiene. These advancements make them an attractive option for modern interior design and construction projects.
