STAIN AND CHEMICAL RESISTANCE AND CLEANABILITY
Stain Resistance1,2ANSI Z 124.632-48 Pass (maximum pass criterion is 64)16-hour exposure to: black crayon, black liquid shoe polish, blue washable ink, gentian violet solution, beet juice, grape juice, lipstick, hair dye, idodine solution, and wet tea solution.
Wear and CleanabilityANSI Z 124.6PassWear: Passes 10,000 scrub cycles. Cleanability: Loss of light reflectance after 25 cycles is 1%-3% (pass criterion is <5%).
Chemical ResistanceANSI Z 124.6Pass16-hour exposure to: naphtha, ethyl alcohol, amyl acetate, ammonia 10%, citric acid 10%, urea 6%, toluene, ethyl acetate, acetone, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide 3%, lye 1%-2%, sodium hypochlorite, trisodium, phosphate 5%, and pine oil.
THERMAL RESISTANCE
Boiling Water ResistanceNEMA LD 3-3.5Pass – no effectWhile short term contact with hot materials up to temperature tested will not harm quartz surfacing, hot cookware should not be placed directly on the surface; use insulated hot pads or trivets.
High Temperature ResistanceNEMA LD 3-3.6Pass – no effectNo effect (no change in colour or surface finish) when tested at 356°F (180°C) for 20 minutes.
SAFETY
