Carrara Nuovo Quartz

Carrara Nuovo quartz is a remarkable material that embodies a unique aesthetic, combining the timeless elegance of classic marble with the benefits of modern engineering. This quartz variant mimics the look of Carrara marble, famous for its soft white background and subtle gray veining, bringing a luxurious and sophisticated touch to any space.

Manufacturing Carrara Nuovo Quartz

1) Raw Material Selection: The process begins with the selection of high-quality raw quartz crystals, which are abundant and found in various parts of the world.

2) Crushing and Blending: These crystals are then crushed into fine granules. This crushed quartz is blended with pigments and polymer resins, the latter acting as a binding agent. The pigments are responsible for giving Carrara Nuovo its distinctive marble-like appearance.

3) Molding and Pressing: The quartz-resin mixture is poured into a mold to shape the slab. It's then subjected to a vibrocompression process under vacuum, which eliminates any air pockets and ensures uniformity.

4) Curing and Polishing: The slab is then heated in a kiln to cure and harden the resin. After curing, the slab is cooled and goes through various levels of polishing, giving it a smooth, refined finish.

5) Quality Inspection: Finally, each slab undergoes a thorough quality inspection to ensure it meets the desired standards of color, pattern, and texture. Our Stone Gallery professionals only select the finest Carrara Nuovo quartz for our customers. 

7 Benefits of Using Carrara Nuovo Quartz in the Home:

1) Durability: Quartz is incredibly hard and durable, resisting scratches, chips, and cracks better than most natural stones.

2) Non-Porous Surface: Unlike natural marble, quartz is non-porous, meaning it does not absorb liquids. This quality makes it highly resistant to staining and eliminates the need for sealing.

3) Hygienic: The non-porous nature also makes Carrara Nuovo quartz a hygienic choice for kitchens and bathrooms as it does not harbor bacteria or viruses.

4) Low Maintenance: It's easy to clean and maintain, requiring only a simple wipe down with soap and water.

5) Aesthetic Flexibility: Carrara Nuovo quartz can be cut and shaped to fit a variety of designs and spaces, making it a versatile choice for countertops, backsplashes, and even flooring.

6) Consistent Appearance: Unlike natural stone, which can vary greatly from slab to slab, Carrara Nuovo quartz offers a consistent appearance, ensuring that the product you select will closely match the installed material.

7) Eco-Friendly Options: Some quartz manufacturers use recycled materials in their production processes, making it a more sustainable option for environmentally conscious consumers.
