Quartz is one of the most commonly available minerals in the world. Our suppliers grind large blocks of quartz into quartz granules. Natural quartz granules constitute 94% of Diresco Stone.
The use of these quartz granules makes our Diresco Stone extremely strong and highly scratch resistant.
Diresco is a non-porous stone with excellent scratch-resistance and resistance to acids - dimensionally stable and shock-resistant - impervious and stain-resistant - corrosion and water-resistant

The density of the pores makes it unnecessary to apply a protector on composite worktops with Polished or Velvet finishes. However, we would advise you to apply protector to Anticato, our rough finish - you can purchase these protectors from specialised stores.
Diresco Stone can be cleaned very easily with a neutral cleaner. NEVER use aggressive cleaners such as drain uncloggers, oven cleaners, metal cleaners, paint strippers, etc.
A simple dish cloth or micro fibre cloth is sufficient; never use abrasive sponges. Please refer to our detailed maintenance instructions.
Although the surface is highly scratch resistant, we do recommend the use of a chopping board - out of respect for your worktop!
Diresco Stone is heat resistant. But out of respect for your worktop, use a trivet when placing a hot pot or casserole, sudden and rapid temperature changes can potentially damage your worktop surface.
A technically qualified professional will use a two-component adhesive when installing the worktop, tiles on a flat, stable, dry and clean substrate.
Diresco Stone is an ideal worktop for your kitchen; it ensures that you can enjoy cooking without any worries.
The quartz composite is very commonly used in the bathroom. You can easily create a walk-in shower without joints; but you can also make other splash walls or a designer sink;
It is obviously suitable as a floor, and you can fully change the floor according to the colour of your worktop or your bathroom in this manner, or give your bathroom a uniform appearance. It can also be used to cover stairs, where scratch resistance is highly desirable.
