Unlike natural stone slabs, which are quarried from the earth, these slabs are engineered in a factory. The primary ingredient is ground quartz (about 94 percent), combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant and they do not need to be sealed.
