What to avoid
Avoid exposing your diamastone® Quartz surface to strong chemicals and solvents, especially solvents that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride. Avoid furniture cleaners and paint strippers, nail polish remover, permanent markers and ink, bleach and oven cleaners.
diamastone® is extremely scratch resistant but not indestructible. Avoid use as a cutting board.
Jaipur (Thyme, Cream, Anis, Chili, Olive, Pepper, Vanilla, Ginger)
This series is characterized by fold marks, texture and tonality variations. Oils in the kitchen will enhance the color of this honed and textured surface. It is recommended that the countertop be sealed, with a penetrating stone sealer made specifically for Quartz.
Mother of Pearl (Lido, Poloperla)
The mother of Pearl natural product (mostly calcium carbonate) is unpredictable in composition and may react with strong acids. Avoid acids and acidic cleaners. Neutral cleaners are best. Acidic foods such as lemon or tomato juice, Vinegar, red wine, etc. should not be left on these surfaces and should be wiped off as quickly as possible. Rarely smaller pieces of pearl may dislodge from the slab. This does not constitute a defect and the void can be filled with a suitable material.
Although diamastone® is extremely resistant to moderate hot temperatures, it may be damaged by sudden or prolonged extreme heat. This can cause thermal shock resulting in a crack. Extreme heat may also discolor some of the darker colors. Therefore it is recommended that you avoid direct contact with hot items. Trivets or hot pads should always be used. It is also not advisable to place electric fry pans, kettles or woks directly on the stone surface for the same reason as poorly designed appliances might overheat.
