Compac quartz products are beloved by designers, homeowners and property developers alike, who adore the fact that while Compac derives inspiration from natural stones- such as the Calacatta marble- which is reinterpreted by Compac with their Unique Calacatta quartz, with a natural look and feel, it also manages to stay strong in all of the segments where natural stone worktops fail.
Here are summarized the top 10 Compac Quartz worktop materials of 2017:
Compac Glaciar is a symbol of eternal peace and tranquillity. Glaciar is a match made in heaven for winter lovers who like the serenity of this magical colour. This snowy white quartz stone contains very faint white speckles that are reminiscent of the glaciers of Antarctica. This surface has a pure texture and offers an impeccable range of designer options that are only limited by your creativity. Further to this, Compac Glaciar undergoes the same amount of technological testing in which all Compac quartz surfaces are known for. Glaciar is resistant to scratching and staining without ever needing a sealing or coating that is primarily the case with natural stones. As royal as a Compac Glaciar looks, it offers a great value in return, while remaining light on your budget and imparting grace to any architectural design.
Inspired from the original Italian Carrara marble, Compac Carrara quartz showcases a white background and grey-beige veining. To imitate the real beauty of Carrara marble, the makers use a biological resin to bind together grains of quartz under extreme temperature and pressure, into an adaptable surface that is suitable for flooring, wall cladding, and kitchen worktops. What makes Compac Carrara sustainable is the inclusion of polymer resins that add specific benefits during the entire process of fabrication and installation. This feature also gives rise to another advantage of Compac surfaces that is the lack of porosity. For a homeowner or for use at a food preparation area, this factors in greatly, because Compac Carrara is anti-bacterial and remains non-toxic. Furthermore, it is environmentally safe. Due to the blend of natural and polymer resins, patterns are consistent all over the slabs, but they may not be identical due to the use of other elements, which results in natural chemical combination, thus giving rise to a beautiful veining and texture.
