Engineered stone

Engineered stone is sometimes referred to as caesarstone, quarella or sintered porcelain. It is a composite material comprising of crushed natural quartz, pigments and polymer binders (resin) used to emulate natural stone. It is used primarily for kitchen tops, countertops, work surfaces and bathroom vanity slabs.

Engineered stone is typically worked in the same way as natural stone using a diamond blades and tools. The material can be produced in either 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. The most common slab size is 3040mm x 1440mm. Engineered stone is typically stronger in flexibility and is less porous than most marble and granite. Its polyester resin binding agents allow some flexibility, preventing cracking under flexural pressure. But, the binding agents often continue to harden, leading to a loss of flexural strength over time. The polyester resins are not completely UV stable and engineered stone should not be used in external applications. Continuous exposure to UV can cause discolouration of the stone, and breakdown of the resin binder. The material is damaged by direct application of heat, and should not be used close to a direct source of ignition.
