29/02/2024 468reader

Engineered Quartz is creating a “Remodeling Trend” in interior design because of its luxurious, sophisticated beauty and outstanding features. However, for many people, this is still a new material. This article will help you learn more about Engineered Quartz Pros and Cons, and discover the unique advantages and diverse applications of these materials in the architecture of creating modern living spaces.

Let’s learn more about the structure and applications of Engineered Quartz with Lux and Quartz Pros and Cons through the article below.


Engineered Quartz is a synthetic material made from more than 90% natural quartz stone powder combined with glue and additives. Natural quartz is the hardest mineral after diamond. Therefore, this type of stone possesses outstanding durability, scratch resistance, and impact resistance.
Engineered Quartz is produced by mixing sand and quartz stone powder with polyester liquid resin, colorants, and additives in certain proportions. This mixture is then poured into a mold and pressed under high pressure through a vacuum vibro-compression machine to form a stone slab with high density and a perfect bonding surface. Next, the plate after vibration and pressing is put into the furnace to complete the production process.
Then, the stone panels are ground and polished to create shine and smoothness, enhancing light reflection. Finally, they are cut into standard-sized sheets and packaged ready for use.
The production process of Engineered Quartz requires strict compliance with technical standards and strict control of input materials to ensure products of the highest quality.
