Countertops and Surfaces
Zodiaq countertops bring the beauty of natural quartz together with technology to create a new and exciting possibilities. Because Zodiaq is made of 93% quartz, it combines the unusual light play and depth of quartz crystals with exceptional clarity in a broad range of radiant colors. Quartz is also one of
the hardest naturally occurring materials.
What colors, thicknesses and sheet sizes are available?
* The Zodiaq palette has over 50 colors available
* Slabs: Available in 52" (1.3m) x 118" (3m)
* Thicknesses: Available in 3/4" (2cm) and 1-1/8" (3cm)
Can Zodiaq be used in food preparation areas?
Zodiaq quartz surfaces are nonporous and can be used in the kitchen, or wherever food is prepared.
What are the design capabilities of Zodiaq quartz surfaces?
Zodiaq can be used for walls and countertops. A wide variety of edge treatments are also possible. Due to the extreme hardness of the material, special diamond cutting tools must be used in fabrication.
What care and maintenance does Zodiaq require?
Zodiaq quartz surfaces are very easy to maintain because they are durable, nonporous and chemical-resistant. They require no sealants or waxes to retain their lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface. Routine cleaning may be done with a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary, a small amount of non-bleach, nonabrasive cleanser.

How well does Zodiaq withstand heat, scratches and stains?
Zodiaq is resistant to heat, scratching and staining. However, the use of trivets or hot pads is recommended. A cutting board should be used when slicing or chopping, especially with a serrated knife. Spills should be wiped up quickly; a nonabrasive cleaning pad and a non-bleach cleaning product may be used to remove stubborn or dried spills.

Can Zodiaq be used together with other surfaces?
Yes. A Corian sink can be installed in a Zodiaq countertop, for example. The material can be inlaid into the other, either along the edges or on the surfaces, for a dramatic design statement. Zodiaq may be combined with other materials-such as chrome, stainless steel, glass or brass.
