All SANTAMARGHERITA® quartz surfaces used as counter tops are highly resistant to scratches, show low water absorption and are highly resistant to acid fluids normally found in kitchens and bathrooms. The surface, expecially in polished finish, does not retain dirt and is easy to clean.
SANTAMARGHERITA® quartz is a superior product made of 93% natural silica, 7% polyester resin and coloured pigments. The specific combination of these materials has allowed us to create a superior material with a wide variety of shades, grit distribution and background colours whilst maintaining superior technical qualities.
Quartz surfaces do not need to be protected with wax or sealants. For routine cleaning use a damp cloth with water and a neutral pH detergent: a good quality detergent for marble surface is ideal (it is important that the detergent has no wax content). When choosing your detergent, avoid aggressive high acid or high alkaline cleaners as these are not suitable for quartz.
We recommend the use of trivets to avoid continued exposure of SANTAMARGHERITA® quartz surfaces to sources of heat (pots, pans or hot dishes). We recommend the use of chopping boards when cutting and preparing food.
