Caesarstone
Description

Caesarstone is an engineered stone for use in benchtops and other interior applications. Its surfaces consist of up to 93% quartz — stronger than natural stone and one of nature's hardest minerals. Caesarstone surfaces are resistant to stains, scratches, cracks, heat and common household chemicals.

Key Features
  • Scratch and stain resistant
  • Waterproof — never requires sealing
  • Heat resistant
  • Superior flexural strength compared to granite and marble
  • Mould and mildew resistant
  • Resistant to most household chemicals, acids and oils
  • 10 year limited warranty
  • Large slab size minimises joins and therefore maintenance
  • Available in 20mm and 30mm slab thickness for design and budget flexibility
Scope of Use
  • Caesarstone quartz surfaces are for interior use only
  • Caesarstone quartz surfaces are non-porous, waterproof, mould and mildew resistant — suitable for kitchen benchtops and splashbacks as well as bathroom vanities and wall linings
  • Caesarstone is compliant with the International Health and Safety Foundation sanitary standard, ensuring that its working surfaces are safe for use in all food environments
Limitations on Use
  • Caesarstone should only be fabricated by a fabricator certified by Laminex New Zealand.
