What is Viatera Quartz Surfacing?
Viatera Quartz Surfacing is a man-made stone composed of 93% natural quartz blended with advanced polymer resins and colorfast pigments. The manufacturing process takes place under intense heat and pressure producing an extremely durable product.
Viatera is made primarily of natural quartz (93%) which is an impervious crystalline mineral that is particularly resistant to absorption. When adhered with the polyester resins, Viatera becomes a material that is non-porous and extremely stain resistant. Unlike Granite, Viatera does not require the application of sealant to ensure its non-porous attribute.
Natural quartz, the majority of the Viatera makeup, makes this stone nearly impossible to scratch or chip.
When working with hot pans or pots, it is still recommended that trivets and/or hot pads be used.
