Engineered Stone

Engineered stone is a composite material comprising rock and resin. It is used primarily for kitchen countertops.

Engineered stone products are gaining in popularity and are sometimes preferred over granite products because engineered stone requires less maintenance and has better resistance to stains and bacterial contamination. Silestone, CaesarStone, Zodiaq and OKITE, are five of the leading manufacturers.

Engineered stone is made by combining the aggregate with resin and pigments, in a vibro-compaction process that binds the medium permanently. Because the mix is uniform, engineered stone has no fissures or veins.
