Frequently Asked Questions

1 What is natural quartz?

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

3 Where can I purchase Diresco Stone?

Contact the dealer in your country - see our “Dealers” tab

4 Do I have to apply a protector on Diresco Stone?

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.

5 What should I use to maintain Diresco Stone on a daily basis?

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.

6 Can I cut directly on my Diresco kitchen countertops?

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.

8 What products are recommended at the time of installation?

A technically qualified professional will use a two-component adhesive when installing the worktop, tiles on a flat, stable, dry and clean substrate.

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.
