Belgian Blue by Diresco Quartz
Belgian Blue Quartz Material Description
Belgian Blue is a black quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Diresco company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Belgian Blue is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
To this day, quartz remains one of our best-selling stone worktops products. It is nearly infallible, defined by near-indestructible properties, easy cleaning & maintenance, but above all exceptional beauty. Quartz is modern, stylish, sleek and perfectly slots into any environment, as though it naturally belongs there.
The black Belgian Blue quartz worktops are incredibly sturdy and resistant to abrasion, cutting, staining and general wear and tear that impact other, weaker materials, like wood or laminate worktops. You may cut vegetables, fruit or meat directly on a quartz surface, forgoing the need for chopping boards. Even the sharpest of blades won’t scratch this durable stone.
The sleek quartz kitchen worktops are also completely waterproof. Since they are man-made products, they are imbued during the production process with special resins and agents that prevent all water absorption. Therefore, even if you leave a coffee, wine, grease or water spill over night, the worktop won’t soak any of it up, leaving the colour and pristine shine entirely unharmed.
Discolouration, chipping, and warping aren’t a threat to small grained Belgian Blue kitchen quartz worktops. These are products blessed with incredible longevity and unmatched durability. In essence, these tops are a one-off purchase that lasts a lifetime.
What thicknesses are available for Belgian Blue?
The slabs of Belgian Blue by Diresco are available in 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
What makes Belgian Blue so unique?
Product colour description:
Black materials, like Belgian Blue by Diresco above, are extremely popular in the quartz and granite worktops industry. Primarily because this is a universal colour. Black brilliantly contrasts white & green cabinets or grey floors. It is a colour that emboldens your kitchen and manifests the strength inherent to this stone product. Black resembles depth, a crevice, a black hole. It’s a deceptive colour that seems plain, drab and intimidating in our minds, but when applied to a piece of furniture it inspires a sense of awe and wonder.
Material structure & composition:
Small grains, a feature of this Belgian Blue worktop product, add a stoney, rough effect to the smooth surface. It’s a fantastic way to pick a generally plain-coloured product without it appearing lifeless or lacking dimension. Our fine-grained materials are very popular due to their universality. Whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen, utility room or stairwell, this product may be applied to any home setting. Furthermore it masks signs of grime, mud or muck – perfect for those patio floors!
Material recommended for:
- Stairs & step cladding,
- Bathroom worktops & vanity tops,
- Utility room tops.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The black Belgian Blue by Diresco can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
Founded in 2003, Belgium, Diresco is presently one of the largest worldwide providers of composite quartz surfaces. One example is the small grained Belgian Blue. Their prestige spreads far and their products match newest trends, revolutionising the international quartz worktops market. Primarily because Diresco are pioneers of BIO UV Technology that permeates through their quartz composite.
In brief, Diresco products have an incredible resistance to UV rays. This facilitates the worktop’s longevity as it outright prevents discolouration and fading caused by sunlight. Moreover, Diresco products earned their reputation due to their large and diverse spectrum of patterns. Their selection of hues and varied composition is complex and abstract. Each shade contains individual flecks, spots, grains, or a network of intertwining veins.
As such, their quartz composite products are applicable in a range of settings. E.g. quartz kitchen worktops that show resistance against daily perils of cooking life. They’re fantastic for outdoor use too: those BBQ worktops you dreamt of, or the paved paths of a shopping outlet. With Diresco quartz, the possibilities are limitless.
