Oxidian by Caesarstone Quartz
Oxidian Quartz Material Description
Oxidian is a dark grey, rusty quartz material that comes in a natural texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Caesarstone company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Oxidian 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, rusty Oxidian 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 metallic effect & worn Oxidian 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 Oxidian?
The slabs of Oxidian by Caesarstone 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 Oxidian so unique?
Product colour description:
Dark grey tones of this Caesarstone Oxidian 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.
A rusty colour, like on this Oxidian quartz, is exceptional and rare, inspired by the raw, red colour of oxidised iron. Many people adore this vintage, industrial look. And thanks to stone kitchen worktops, now they can safely incorporate it into their kitchens, without involving the dirty, unsafe and unhygienic genuine rusted metal. These rustic tones sublimely coexist among contemporary and traditional furniture. But above all, when worked into kitchen countertops, they draw the eyes of every beholder.
Material structure & composition:
The metallic effect, a feature of Oxidian, has only been a recent invention, commonly applied to ceramic tops. The effect gives off a rough, rusty, worn look, ideal for interiors with an industrial feel, but not only. It complements traditional kitchens that utilise wood, stone and raw metal for decorative purposes. This worktop style is meant to stand out, as the breath-taking centrepiece of every interior.
Material recommended for:
- Traditional & contemporary interiors,
- Wall & floor cladding,
- Vintage kitchens decorated with wood & stone.
The worn effect, present on Oxidian above, is reminiscent of rough, brushed materials like unpolished metal, stone or concrete. It’s a rugged style, filled with ‘bruised’ patches that appear scrubbed or worn-out. It’s made for lovers of hoarse, raw traits attributed to decorative resources. These materials fit well into modern kitchens known for inclusion of contrasting, polished, materials or those inclusive of wood, brick, slate, copper or iron elements.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops,
- Coffee table tops,
- Interiors rich in brick, slate, wood & copper.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The dark grey, rusty Oxidian colour by Caesarstone is supplied in a ‘natural’ finish which is meant to counter the usual polished gloss of other kitchen worktop products. It feels gravelly to touch. In fact, a mix of aged leather with solidified, fused gravel. The ‘natural’ texture for worktops, floors or cladding is an amazing addition to spaces that aim to evoke a ‘rugged’, weather-beaten vibe. Products with this texture make for a fitting outdoor décor. The same goes for spas, cafes or atmospheric bars where vegetation is ample.
