The Mineral stone advantage over other newer materials like Porcelain.
All our Supernatural Mineral stock is full bodied (this means the pattern of vein on the surface of the stone runs through the entire edge once fabricated and polished, including the edge of exposed stone on an undermount sink) unlike some other material such as Porcelain which mostly is a surface print over clay and has to be mitred to avoid showing the edge. All exposed edges after fabrication on 6mm and 12mm thick porcelain show the colour of brownish clay, which is completely different to the surface print.
The edges on our quartz is a nice 3mm aris or pencil round which is not the case with porcelain as polishing deep into the cut edge exposes this brown colour as the print on the surface in porcelain does not penetrate 3mm through the surface.
This makes the porcelain edges sharp after mitering as compared to a nice aris on quartz.
This sharp edge on porcelain is prone to causing harm like cuts to children and also prone to chipping as Porcelain is a very hard and brittle material. Once this edge is chipped it’s hard to colour match the edge on porcelain.
The other new invention in Mineral is manufacturing the stone from low silica. All the brands we use are converting to low Silica and this will be standard towards the end of 2023.
We are already fabricating Mineral that has a safe level of silica and thereby further reducing the harm it could cause to workers.
Further to this our fabrication is fully automated using Computerised saws and polishers reducing human interaction while fabricating your next Stone Benchtop.
We are a Green manufacturer
We are an Environmentally conscious manufacturer and reduce the impact of Manufacturing your stone Benchtops tops on the Environment.
How do we achieve that ?
Stone fabrication by its nature consumes a large volume of Water for fabrication and polishing. We recycle all our water and do not use fresh water for every Stone Benchtop created.
All the water used to manufacture your stone Benchtops is recollected in an underground pit, goes through a filtration process and reused, thereby only using about 5% of fresh water than it would otherwise require. That’s a saving of 95% of water. To put things into perspective, polishing of edges on stone require approx 250 litres of water per minute. We bring that down to 12.5 litres!
