There are some alternative quartz products available. Some of which we have used in the past. History and experience has proven to us that a high percentage of quartz products shipped in from China, as an example, are of a low grade where it is virtually impossible to get the edge of the material to take a polish. Be prudent if you select a quartz product other than those listed underneath from a.n.other supplier. With these low grade products, chemicals are applied by the fabricator to the leading edge, to make the product appear polished. Over a period of time, this will fade leaving an unpolished face edge and sometimes considerably worse with scrapes and saw blade marks that were previously invisible. These poor quality materials really should be avoided, especially when you note that they will only change a quotation by a token value. Consider this, if you select a really cheap quartz material, you will in the main, simply be selecting quartz slabs where the quartzite content has been reduced to enable cheaper pricing or worse still for the fabricator to make greater profits. The quartzite reduction decreases the materials level of durability. This makes the material easier to damage and quite often appears dull in finish. Honestly, if good quality materials were available, we would use them. Perhaps there is a reason why you cannot see them amongst our product range!
