Applications

Quartz Inc. grits are the basic raw material for engineered stone slab. Engineered stone slab is a man made composite material consisting of quartz grit (90 - 93%) and bound together by adhesive polyester resin and pigments (7 - 10%). They are durable, non-porous and have wide variety of patterns and colors that cannot be found consistently in nature. Further, they have improved properties over natural stone in terms of abrasion & chemical resistance, hardness and weather ability. These characteristics are important for floor, countertop, furniture and out door applications. The slab matrix consists of quartz grit of different sizes to fill the macro and micro pores. The biggest size of quartz grit depends on the slab thickness. In general the required biggest size of quartz grit is one-third of the slab thickness. Therefore different sizes of quartz grits are required for slab making. Other than the sizes, the quality of the quartz grit defines largely the quality of finished slab. The quality is mainly defined in terms of colour (degree of whiteness), crystalline structure (transparent to opaque), foreign particles (almost zero tolerance for ferrous particles, rubber, thread, etc.).

Quartz Inc. dressed or un-dressed blocks, white crystalline to yellow, violet and grey (smoky) colored of different sizes (up to 3 m3) are the basic raw material to make natural translucent mono or mosaic slabs for high end of the market.

Quartz Inc. surfacing materials are available in the form of tiles, mono & mosaic slab and dressed blocks. They are unique in terms of high hardness, less moisture absorption, variety of colors, sizes, crystalline characteristics, texture, and translucency. Blocks are used in making sculpture and vanity items like sink, bathtub, etc. apart from tiles and slabs. They find application in the following:

  • Flooring
  • Wall cladding
  • Kitchen countertops
  • Backsplashes in kitchen and bathroom
  • Kitchen island
  • Sink
  • Bathtub
  • Tabletops
  • Sculpture
  • Miscellaneous vanity items

Quartz Inc. advanced back lighting solutions are available in the form of light guide plate (LGP) that back lightens translucent surfaces in the form of wall cladding, flooring, furniture, etc. They find application for lighting of the following:

  • Signs
  • Architectural lighting
  • Floors
  • Lighted walls
  • Furniture
  • Retail displays
  • Lighted shelves
  • Back light stone
  • Stained glass
  • Faux window or skylight
  • Under cabinet lighting
  • Drawing table
  • Photography / Videography
