Glaciar Quartz Material Description
Glaciar is a cream, white quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Compac company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Glaciar 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 cream, white Glaciar 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 plain Glaciar 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 Glaciar?
The slabs of Glaciar by Compac 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 Glaciar so unique?
