Quartz surfaces are composed of 90%-93% quartz and 10%-7% binders. This composition makes quartz surfaces incredibly hard, strong, scratch resistant, and durable. Because quartz tops are poured and molded they are much less likely to have any fissures, unlike granite and marble. And, unlike granite and marble, quartz surfaces are nonporous, requiring little to no maintenance and making them stain resistant, easily sanitized, food safe, and hygienic.
Solid Surface is a composition of acrylic resin, dyes, and other aggregates. These surfaces are nonporous, strong, and easily repairable. They require very little maintenance and are easy to clean – just use a soft rag and mild soap. Solid Surfaces are rated food safe and easily sanitized, making them perfect for commercial and residential kitchens and bathrooms.
