A resilient and slip resistant floor covering, Quartz Carpet combines natural quartz granules with an epoxy resin. But have you ever wondered how it’s made?
July 30th, 2015
A quartz carpet actually consists of millions of tiny grains of quartz; with the upmost care, the small grains are then selected by the manufacturer for design. The grains are then washed and fire-dried before being coloured.
The colouring is done at a high temperature and with specially developed UV stable coatings, which makes for a very high quality carpet, which is more wear-resistant and more colourfast. The grains are then mixed with a binding agent before a professional installer spreads the small stones in approximately 6mm thickness.
It’s up to the client if they wish to have little air pockets between the granules exposed, in open pore finish, or have them fully sealed with a clear filler, in a pore filled finish.
The expected lifespan of a Quartz Carpet is over 20 years, but every day is a new record. The product has been in existence for almost 35 years worldwide and there are many floors that stand testament to this.
