Pure quartz and post-consumer glass are fused together through a unique manufacturing process to make quartz countertops in the Elements collection by Durcon. The result is a product suitable for use in the kitchen, laundry and bath. Unlike natural stones, this surface is non-porous so it resists staining, such as food, juice or wine. Moisture and bacteria are out of luck too — it’s NSF certified for safe food contact. Quartz is increasingly gaining on stone as a material for counters due to its durability. And as styles become more sophisticated, the chunky, sparkly bits in the material have been set aside for a more neutral surface look.
Available in a dozen colors Duron’s quartz is 100% recyclable at the end of its lifetime. (The company has a special Dust-to-Dust program to facilitate this.) I have to wonder if the shiny surface would be a maintenance nightmare for some but the website states Elements is easy to clean with a soap and water mixture. An environmentally friendly surface that’s durable and beautiful.
