Our engineered stone is more ‘stone-like’ because it’s a mixture of 93% quartz and 7% polyester resin which is pressed into slabs. Due to this engineering, our quartz has superior strength and beauty. Although your knives will not ruin American Quartz, the use of a cutting board is suggested to avoid dulling the surface or damaging knife blades.
Unfortunately, even the finest material can suffer damages from sudden changes in temperature. Be careful not to place hot pans directly onto the surface although material can withstand heat up to 356°F.
A benefit of American Quartz’s products is that they will allow you to focus on the important things in life. Choose American Quartz to be your surface of choice, and enjoy American Quartz’s worry and care-free bonuses.
Please note that the outdoor use of our products is not covered by our Lifetime Warranty. American Quartz’s products have not been tested under prolonged exposure to UV rays. Unfortunately, installing our products outdoors will render our Lifetime Warranty null and void.
