17.2) Granite worktops

Granite is a natural product characterized by extreme hardness and durability. The material is absolutely heat-resistant and extremely acid-resistant. Depending on the type of granite, it is a more or less open pore natural product, which prevents the surface being sealed completely by impregnation. Fats and fruit juices (acidic) can cause spots if left on the surface for long periods and should be removed immediately. All visible outer edges are softened and polished.

 

Depths: 60, 70, 90 and 120 cm.

Thickness: 3 cm = solid material

4 cm = 2 cm thick granite top with 2 cm thick and 7 cm wide underlining.

Quartz material surfaces are produced in a special process. The base materials of quartz granules

approx. 93 %, colour pigments and resins are mixed and pressed in a vacuum and vibration process

under high pressure (approx. 100 tons). The curing process then follows in special ovens with a

temperature of 88 degrees C. The final finishing procedure includes calibrating and surface treatment

during which the tops are smoothed and polished.

Surfaces are resistant to all common household acids and detergents.
