Interested in Upgrading to Zodiaq Countertops?
Granite, quartz and corian manufacturers are always on the lookout to produce new and exciting stone lines. Zodiaq is one such product that has witnessed a steady rise in sales over the past decade. Created by DuPont, these specialty quartz countertops look simply magnificent and perform flawlessly.
Zodiaq countertops are actually comprised of roughly 90 percent quartz with the rest being a mixed composition of trace binder materials. This also includes a small portion of acrylic resin and various infused colors. DuPont has its central mining operations in the Canadian Thetford Mines, and the stone they extract is used in multiple residential and commercial applications, but the bulk of it is sold to make kitchen countertops.
When presented with multiple options, one of the first questions our customers ask is what the benefits of a particular stone product are. The key advantage the Zodiaq line has over its competition is its non-porous composition.
Since the material is synthetic (due to the infusion of quartz with the trace materials), it is not nearly as susceptible to water damage or the staining and discoloration that can result from spills. Although aesthetically at the top of the list, limestone, marble and granite countertops must be sealed every couple of years to maintain their shine and natural shine.
For those who prefer a more solid look, Zodiaq slabs are known for their consistent color patterns. You will also be happy to know that DuPont offers a 10-year warranty on all of their countertops!
