Cemento Quartz Material Description
Cemento is a dark grey quartz material that comes in a polished & velluto texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Brachot Hermant company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Cemento 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 dark grey Cemento 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 concrete effect Cemento 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 Cemento?
The slabs of Cemento by Brachot Hermant are available in 12mm or 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.
Any stone surface available in 12mm (or under) is also ideal for wall, kitchen cabinet or even furniture cladding. These thin surfaces are equally as strong as their thicker counterparts, except their weight is severely reduced.
Consequently, they are superb products used to clad ceilings, walls, stairs as well as bathtubs, bathroom equipment, swimming pools or other waterproofed areas. Thanks to their low-weight attribute, they are likewise utilised to decorate furniture, or more commonly kitchen cabinets. These fragile elements benefit from the low mass as their delicate hinges and fittings don’t buckle under the weight. Meanwhile they are continuously protected from dirt, grime, or unintentional scratches, making them very desirable.
What makes Cemento so unique?
Product colour description:
Dark grey tones of this Brachot Hermant Cemento kitchen worktop material are synonymous with modernity and contemporary trends. Dark grey used to be associated with dull, stormy clouds or bland concrete, but for some reason, over the last decade, this hue really came to prominence as definition of trendiness. Whether you have white, cream, black, purple or even grey cabinets, this shade will suit them all. Dark grey worktops are all-embracing materials that slot perfectly into any environment, irrespective of surrounding kaleidoscope of lively colours.
Material structure & composition:
The concrete effect of Cemento is a one-of-a-kind composition. No other worktop material on the market (apart from concrete itself), can replicate and mimic the look of concrete as well as stone worktops. The usually greyish surface, with a worn feel and irregular pockmark effect make for a stunning foreground in contemporary kitchens that hold a raw, industrial, almost metallic vibe.
Material recommended for:
- Contemporary, minimalistic designs,
- Rough, industrial looking interiors,
- Kitchen islands + downstands.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The dark grey Cemento by Brachot Hermant 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.
Many Brachot Hermant slabs, like the dark grey Cemento, are treated with specialised scouring that produces the ‘velluto’, also known as ‘matte’ finish. It’s a velvety, more natural polish that is firstly less reflective and secondly more reminiscent of the coarse ceramic texture. When applied to a quartz worktop, it beautifully brings out the intricate composition details dispersed within the material. It also enhances some of the ‘natural stone’ authenticity, adding flavour to the rather deceptive man-made quartz.
