Volcano Pearl Quartz Material Description
Volcano Pearl is a light grey quartz material that comes in a matte & polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Compac company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Volcano Pearl 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 light grey Volcano Pearl 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 & speckled Volcano Pearl 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 Volcano Pearl?
The slabs of Volcano Pearl 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 Volcano Pearl so unique?
Product colour description:
The light grey colour of Volcano Pearl by Compac is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
Material structure & composition:
The concrete effect of Volcano Pearl 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.
Majority of our stone products, as Volcano Pearl above, are speckled in nature. This means their composition comprises of small-to-medium contrasting veins and threads that spread across the slab surface in a usually regular manner. Like on a leaf, further mimicking the natural inspiration. This structure is a part of our marble-look, natural colour range – fantastic for almost any interior, modern and traditional alike.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops & full splashbacks,
- Modern and traditional interiors,
- General cladding.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
‘Matte’ finish of the light grey Volcano Pearl by Compac is defined by the rough-to-touch texture. Our matte products are deprived of the glossy reflection, the customary quality of most granite worktops and quartz worktops. Instead, they are characterised by a coarse, unpolished layer, more representative of natural stone surfaces. Thanks to their unique ‘organic’ texture, matte surfaces are made for those who appreciate the unrefined, cool feeling of stone.
The light grey Volcano Pearl by Compac 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.
