PentalQuartz is a composite of natural quartz, one of the most abundant and hardest minerals on the planet, and pigments, bound with high quality polymer resins. It is manufactured using the most advanced and latest technology from Breton SpA, of Italy.
PentalQuartz is a high quality solid non porous surface product that is resistant to scratches, heat, stains and water, thus providing for a virtually maintenance free surface. Although it is extremely scratch resistant, it is not scratch proof. It is not recommended to cut or chop directly on your countertop. It is recommended to always use a cutting board. Always use a hot pad or trivet when setting down hot objects, such as hot pans or plates. Direct contact with extremely high heat can cause damage to your PentalQuartz surface. Routine daily cleaning can be done with mild soap and warm water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. Heavier cleaning can be accomplished using a non-abrasive cleanser and sponge. PentalQuartz is not recommended for exterior use, as exposure to direct sunlight for prolonged periods can result in color changes, fading and/or warping.
