Advantages of Element Quartz Surfaces

Non-Porous & Food Safe

Hygiene is one of the most important advantages of Element Quartz Surfaces™. Because the surface is non-porous, there is nowhere for molds and mildew to live or grow. This can be a problem with other types of surfaces, such as granite, marble, and wood. Element Quartz Surfaces™, on the other hand, provide easy clean-up while preventing moisture and bacteria from penetrating the surface.

Strength & Durability

The strength and durability of Element Quartz Surfaces™ are also prominent advantages. The added epoxy resin makes them more durable than natural stone. Quartz has a rating of 7 out of 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, a test used to grade the scratch resistance of minerals. As an example, talc gets a rating of 1 on the scale, and diamond has a rating of 10. This hardness makes the countertops immune to the scratches and chips that are common during installation of other stone counters.

Scratch & Scorch Resistant

Element Quartz Surfaces™ countertops are scratch- and scorch-resistant. There are only three other minerals on earth that are harder to scratch or burn than quartz. Although excessive force with a sharp edge, or prolonged exposure to heat, may cause slight damage, the occasional kitchen mishap will not leave a mark on quartz.


Element Quartz Surfaces™ can be used for many different applications during a residential or commercial renovation. Countertops, islands, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, and backsplashes are just some of the uses for quartz countertops. They can also be used as fireplace surrounds, tub, and shower surrounds, floors, and vanities.

Stain Resistant & Low Maintenance

With today's busy lifestyles, Element Quartz Surfaces™ is becoming a popular choice for many homeowners and commercial venues because Quartz countertops are virtually maintenance-free. They are easy to clean, requiring nothing more than soap and warm water. Once the counters have been installed, there is no sealing or polishing needed. The non-porous nature of the stone makes the counters resistant to stains from food, juices, wine, coffee, tea, and even nail polish.

Uniformity & Consistency

Uniformity of color is one of the primary advantages of Element Quartz Surfaces™. The consistency makes it easier for consumers to know what they're getting, and ensures that all the countertops will match one another perfectly, with no discoloration between sections.
