About SANTAMARGHERITA QUARTZ
Crafted from quartz and carefully selected resins that then undergo an intense manufacturing, grading, and polishing process, Santamargherita Quartz compiles with the strict international standards required for the food industry and safe indoor environments. Santamargherita Quartz is ideal for a wide variety of applications from prestigious large open commercial spaces to intimately detailed interior design solutions in kitchens, bathrooms, flooring and more.
Santamargherita Quartz countertops feature high scratch resistance, low water absorption and high chemical resistance. Kitchen substances of everyday use will not leave surface stains. When compared to other Quartz surfaces, our polished finish is exceptionally stain resistant and does not retain dirt, making it easy to keep clean. Santamargherita Quartz polished surfaces are nonporous and highly resistant to liquids and acids such as coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, and makeup. Every-day cooking substances don’t affect our polished surfaces. Please read our detailed care instructions for more information on use and care of Santamargherita Quartz surfaces.
Care & Maintenance
Santamargherita Quartz surfaces are durable, easy to clean, and highly resistant to staining or etching. For daily maintenance, use a damp cloth and a mild detergent. Thoroughly rinse the surface with water and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. You can also use products specifically designed for cleaning natural stone surfaces.
Stone hardness protects the surface from scratches, and as a general rule, quartz has greater hardness properties than marble. Santamargherita Quartz is highly scratch resistant and durable, no surface is indestructible. To preserve surface aesthetics from alterations, protect the surface with a cutting board when using knives or sharp objects. Also avoid abrasive pads and cleaners with pumice or powders to insure against accidental scratching.
Acid & Liquid Resistance
Santamargherita Quartz polished surfaces are nonporous and highly resistant to liquids and acids such as coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, and makeup. Every-day cooking substances don’t affect the polished surface.
Santamargherita Quartz surfaces are tested to withstand higher temperatures in the event of short and occasional contact during food preparation. However, the surfaces are not heat proof. We recommend the use of trivets or other heat-resistant pads and to avoid direct contact with heat sources such as saucepans, frying pans, or deep-fat fryers, pots, irons, and open flame.
To preserve the beauty of Santamargherita Quartz surfaces, avoid contact with:
- Alkaline chemicals (acetone, caustic soda, etc.)
- Pure ammonia or ammonia-based cleaners
- Solvents in general (such as nail polish removers or solvents for paints containing trichloroethylene and methylene chloride)
- Brighteners, oily soaps, inks, and permanent markers
- Steel wool pads, and abrasive and micro-abrasive cleaners such as creams or powders
- Strong cleaners such as those for cleaning the oven
- Wax polishes or products containing wax that could cause a loss of luster
In case the quartz surface comes into contact with any of the above, immediately rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid any misuse.
