Benefits of Hanstone® Quartz
Meet Hanstone’s state-of-the-art quartz surfaces made of natural quartz – one of nature’s strongest materials. Offering beauty tough enough to stand up to everyday life, with classic hues and movements, Hanstone Quartz celebrates the natural world around us, while being on trend and appealing for all interior aspirations.
Many interior surfaces harbor unwanted microorganisms. With routine cleaning, Hanstone’s nonporous surfaces inherently will not harbor or promote bacteria, mold, or mildew growth.
Composed mostly of natural quartz that registers a 7 on Mohs hardness scale (diamonds are a 10). Hanstone Quartz surfaces are exceptionally scratch resistant. However, no surface is 100% scratch-proof, so cutting or dragging heavy, sharp objects directly on the surface should be avoided.
Unlike granite and marble countertops, Hanstone Quartz surfaces are nonporous, impermeable to liquids, and highly resistant to stains from common culprits like wine, coffee, ketchup, vinegar, and makeup.
Made of one of nature’s most heat resistant materials, Hanstone Quartz surfaces are highly resistant to high temperature. To avoid thermal shock, do not place searing hot objects directly on the surface.
A sliced lime can be devastating to many natural stone surfaces. Not so far Hanstone Quartz, which is designed to handle foods and common household cleaners known to etch surfaces.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
Hanstone Quartz surfaces require no sealant, waxes, coatings, or routine polishing. Clean with a damp cloth, mild liquid detergents, or non-abrasive non-bleach cleansers. Wipe dry to avoid water streaking or surface haze.
Designed to handle life’s normal wear and tear, Hanstone Quartz is composed of natural hard quartz crystals to produce one of the most durable surfacing materials on today’s market.
Hanstone Quartz offers categories for LEED points and is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality and GREENGUARD Children & School certified. Our North American plant recycles 100% manufacturer wastewater, repurposes solid waste, conserves energy, and uses advanced air purification systems.
