High-tech, high-style ma­te­ri­als for bench­tops.

✚ Con­sider over­lay­ing a tired bench­top with a slim­line quartz com­pos­ite such as Sile­stone, avail­able in cladding thick­nesses of 12mm, 20mm and 30mm.

✚ Many com­pos­ite ma­te­ri­als can be used in both ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing splash­backs, join­ery, fur­ni­ture and floor­ing, which presents fresh de­sign pos­si­bil­i­ties for kitchens, bath­rooms and laun­dries.

✚ The wa­ter-re­sis­tant qual­i­ties of com­pos­ites make them ideal out­door ma­te­rial for seam­less al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing.

High-tech sur­faces can re­pro­duce the look of ex­pen­sive stone and are eas­ier to main­tain.
