A Material Analysis – Cimstone

What is Cimstone?

We today turn our focus to another popular material we can provide our clients with. Cimstone’s popularity could however, be for alternative reasons.

Whilst holding the primary features that many of our products do… being strong and durable, whilst resistant to various permutations, the beauty of the product comes from the production process.

It is important to note that the non water absorbing consistency through which Cimstone is produced makes it a material which appeals to not just homeowners, but to the hospitality industry as well.

Going back to the properties of the 93% quartz material,  Cimstone is highly effective to high temperatures and possible scratches… meaning the surface can be made full use of.


Advantages of Cimstone

A key factor when many invest in a new work surface, is the amount of time and effort that will be required to keep the material clean. The fact that Cimstone doesn’t need polishing or sealing already benefits this attitude.

With the hardness degree close to that of the diamond, it is little surprise that the pristine and aesthetically pleasing natural sheen of the surface when installed, can be maintained with relative ease.

The low water absorption of Cimstone, along with the fact that it is not affected by substances such as Wine, Olive Oil and Vinegar means that the material is extremely hygienic, perfect for food preparation areas.


Uses of Cimstone

When all of the above features and advantages are considered, it is little surprise that Cimstone can be used as an effective work surface within the hospitality industry… for example, as a bar top.

Furthering on from the non water absorbing consistency of Cimstone, this attribute provides a reason as to why the material can be used for furnishings such as a vanity unit, underlining the product’s versatility.
