High UV Resistance will not fade or degrade over time. Highly Scratch Resistant is the most scratch resistant surface on the market. Stain Resistance completely stain proof (wine, coffee, markers, rust can be easily removed from the surface), zero-porosity, contains no resins, chemical resistant (bleach, drain cleaners and oven de-greasers won’t harm). High Resistance to Fire and Heat withstand high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking, hot pots can be placed directly on the surface with no worry of damage. Abrasion Resistance never needs to be re-surfaced or re-finished. Resistance to Ice and Thawing thermal shock proof from both extreme heat and cold. High Mechanical Resistance over 5 times the strength of granite, 12-inch unsupported overhang on countertops. Non-Porous zero porosity, never needs to be sealed. Colour Stability colour consistency from slab to slab, long-lasting product that will not fade over time, the surface you install today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product. Dimensional Stability very consistent in both dimension and thickness throughout each slab. Resistance to Hydrolysis. Fireproof.
