What are Quantum Quartz Stones?
Quantum Quartz is a very popular brand of reconstituted or engineered stone from WK Stone. This type of stone is normally used for kitchens, bathrooms, and benchtops. Engineered Quartz Stones are widely popular in Melbourne over natural stones like granite and marble for a variety of reasons. They possess high strength, durability, and limitless versatility, allowing for a variety of hues, styles, and edging. Quartz is engineered and reconstituted to achieve a wide array of contemporary design features. Compared to natural stone and marble, it is more consistent without the need for constant on-going care and maintenance while also being more cost-effective.
The manufacturing process of Engineered Quartz Stone involves compaction by Vibro-compression vacuum process, in which a crushed stone/resin mix is cast on a moving belt. The mixture of approximately 93% stone aggregates and 7% polyester resin by weight is heated and compressed under vacuum in a large press. Engineered quartz stone is then processed in basically the same manner as its natural counterpart.
