If you’ve been searching for the ideal natural stone to incorporate into your space, look no further. Caesarstone is the new generation of surfacing that has become a popular choice for new home construction and renovation projects. 


What is caesarstone? 


Caesarstone is a variation of quartz - one of nature’s most durable materials. Containing approximately 90% natural quartz, these surfaces combine practicality with stunning design. This material can be used in both commercial and residential spaces as countertops, floors, vanities and other surfaces. 


How is caesarstone made? 


To reach its final state, caesarstone must first endure a manufacturing process. It begins when highly-skilled and trained staff inspect the raw materials imported to the manufacturing facility - ensuring that the stone meets a certain standard of excellence. From here, the next steps in the process can begin. 


Feeding and mixing 

Various raw materials are carefully selected and tested by staff. Once chosen, they are blended together at a ratio of approximately 90% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins. 


Molding and pressing

The mixture is then poured into a mold and formed into slabs of various dimensions, compressed under high pressure and vibrated in a vacuum - removing all air. 



To give the natural stone slabs strength and solidity, they are then moved to a kiln and heated to 90°C for approximately 45 minutes. 



To achieve the perfect finish, the natural stone slabs then go through the polishing process. This part of the process can be customized to suit customer preferences of color and designs. 


Quality testing 

Much like the initial process, the caesarstone must go through intense testing to ensure it is consistent with standards and is of the highest quality. 



In this step, all natural stone slabs are labeled, sorted and tagged to ensure they are properly distributed and reach the customer in perfect condition. 


Why caesarstone? 



As previously mentioned, this stone is one of nature’s most durable materials. It is resistant to cracks, scratches and stains. This makes it a highly sought after material for a variety of projects. 


Low maintenance 

Because it is a non-porous material, caesarstone requires little maintenance. Cleaning can simply be done by with a damp cloth and mild detergent. To avoid dulling your surfaces shine, be sure to use products that are non-abrasive. 


Pleasing aesthetic

Caesarstone can add an aesthetically pleasing element to any room. it comes in a wide variety of colors, designs and finishes, so you are sure to find something consistent with your personal tastes. 


Where is caesarstone best used? 


Because it is durable, low maintenance and offers flexibility in design, caesarstone can be used in any space - both commercial and residential. Incorporating caesarstone into your space allows you to use your imagination and achieve any look you want.
