Heat – Quartzite is fairly resistant to heat, so placing a hot coffee pot directly on its surface is can pose no threat. However, be cautious with placing bigger hot pots and dishes directly on the counter, as these could damage it.
Impact – Quartzite is the hardest solution you can choose for your countertop. Any impact that could damage it would have to be calculated, very strong and intentional.
Scratch resistance – Quartzite is hard and solid, is not prone to etching, and will blunt kitchen knives. If scratches do happen, this can be fixed by polishing with the electric sander.
Sealant – Use of quality sealant twice a year is strongly recommended, in order to keep your countertop free of stains.
Durability – Marked with a solid seven on Mohs hardness scale, this type of material is the best solution if you want a strong countertop. Quartzite countertops can be used for generations, if properly maintained.
