Engineered stone is a man-made product that dates back to the late 1980's. The main component in engineered stone is quartz which is one of nature's strongest minerals.
At Artemis we take our inspiration from mother nature and have tried to introduce the pattern and variations found in natural stone into our quartz offering.
The most popular applications for Artemis Quartz are kitchen, vanity and other counter top applications as well as flooring.
Artemis Quartz is the designer's and architect's choice for an application that is stylish, low in maintenance and ultra hygienic. It is ideal for residential and commercial indoor applications.
Artemis Quartz is available in slab format which is fabricated to your specific needs by a stone fabricator.
Artemis quartz slabs have been evaluated and certified by NSF and Greenguard!
Quartz, unlike other stone slabs, can be crafted with a controlled appearance. The way quartz slabs are produced allows the manufacturer to ensure that the slab is exactly the color, texture and pattern that you want. There are no defects in the slab to cut around and run up the cost.
Granite and marble are both porous stones with tiny capillary channels between the minerals. If you spill wine on unsealed granite or marble, the wine can sink into these channels and potentially permanently stain the stone. Quartz has no channels and it never requires sealing. Quartz is very stain resistant. This makes it much easier to use and maintain in the kitchen or bathroom.
When you pay for your counter, you want it to be user friendly. With quartz, cleaning the counter is easy. The quartz washes off with soap and water and looks as good as new. You don't have to use special bacteria-preventing soaps.
Granite and marble countertops must be sealed regularly to prevent staining and the growth of bacteria. This maintenance adds to the cost of these countertops. Quartz does not require sealing or other routine maintenance to maintain its beauty and functionality.
Quartz counters are made by combining 93% natural quartz stone with 7% resin binder and some colourant. This creates an extremely hard stone that is stronger that granite or marble. The slab is the same working thickness as other materials, and it is shaped, cut and finished using the same stone-cutting equipment.
Our quartz slabs are manufactured to be hygienic and to reduce the opportunity for bacteria to grow. This makes Artemis quartz counters appropriate for food preparation and consumption.
Quartz, because of its design and manufacturing process, is a durable and scratch resistant product. By exercising standard care, your finish will look fabulous throughout your countertop's lifetime.
Quartz provides a natural and lasting shine compared to granite
Artemis slabs are available in many colours. We are one of the few quartz companies in world who have successfully manufactured quartz slabs with patterns and variations usually found in natural Stone.
