Materials & Finishes: Composite Stone

What is Composite Stone?

The term composite stone, or engineered stone refers to a stone surface commonly used throughout the home (most commonly as a kitchen benchtop). This type of stone has been manufactured by man as a more durable substitute to natural stone. Composite stones are commonly manufactured using a ratio of up to 93% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins. There are also composite stones that are created using crushed marble powder combined with resin and polymers however, this type of product has been mainly used to create bathroom fittings rather than benchtops.
