THE GUAVA QUARTZ ADVANTAGE

There are a lot of quartz companies out there, and sometimes it can be difficult to figure out which one to choose.  Guava Quartz stands out from the others in two important ways.  First, our proprietary patterns are unparalleled in quality and design.  Second, our focus is on ensuring that your decision is backed up with our exceptional customer service.

quality commitment

Guava Quartz uses only the highest quality raw materials and has a very high compression strength.  This assures that you will have no problem with the material even many years after installation. We also stand behind our product, giving you peace of mind when you purchase our product

environmental commitment

Guava Quartz’s manufacturing process makes use of recycled raw materials and has water recycling systems that reduce its impact on the environment.  We are also backed by the Greenguard standards for low-emitting products and environmental sustainability

customer commitment

Guava Quartz has achieved a balance between environmental responsibility and meeting the needs of its customers. But what really sets us apart is our exceptional level of service.  We strive to offer the most price competitive product in the market without any compromise to the only thing that really matters – you, the customer

care and maintenance

Guava Quartz is a high quality, low maintenance surface that, if properly cared for, will last a lifetime. By following these few simple instructions, your Guava Quartz surface will be maintained in good condition and retain its original beauty.

For general daily cleaning, use mild soap and warm water, and rinse thoroughly for the best result. For spots and products that may stain, use a soft cloth or a non-scratch scrub pad, and a mild non-abrasive cleanser, with a neutral PH. Excessively high or low PH might damage the surface.

Try to remove all potentially staining products as soon as possible. For dried residue, a flat object such as a plastic knife can be used to gently scrape off the sticking material.

Almost any material, no matter how tough, is susceptible to scratching, and Guava Quartz is no exception. Never chop or cut directly on the quartz surface, but always use a cutting board or some other protective surface to prevent scratching.

Direct contact with extremely high heat can cause damage to Guava Quartz. Never place very hot pots, pans, kettles or other objects directly on the Guava Quartz surface. Always use a hot pad or trivet.

Take care to avoid spilling harsh chemicals such as drain cleaners, paint strippers, oven cleaners, bleaches, etc on your Guava Quartz countertop. Guava Quartz can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.

No. Typically, depending on the type of granite, they are around the same price. There are many types of granite and marble that are more expensive than Guava Quartz.

Guava Quartz is very hard and impermeable, but it still needs to be treated with care. If you spill something on the surface, wipe it off as soon as possible to avoid any staining. Check out our Care and Maintenance for more information.

Yes. The surface of Guava Quartz is exceptionally hard and non-porous, and has a very low microbial growth rating. It has NSF/ANSI 51 certification from the Public Health and Safety Company, making it safe to use in restaurants and other places where strict sanitary conditions need to be met. Nevertheless, care should always be taken when preparing food, and the surface should be cleaned and disinfected regularly.

Yes. Guava Quartz is available in 1.5cm, 2cm, and 3cm thicknesses. We offer both regular (300cm x 140cm) and jumbo (320cm x 160cm) sized slabs.  Our exclusive Verona series is also available in 6.5mm thickness.

Guava Quartz has similar properties to granite and marble, so any edge profile that can be done on these materials can be done on Guava Quartz. Talk to your fabricator about your edge profile options.

Guava Quartz offers direct savings due to low overheads and competitive advantages. We do this without compromising quality
