What Is Quartzite?

Quartzite is a metamorphic rock made almost entirely from the mineral quartz. It begins its geological life as sand grains, but over time, those grains become compressed and turn into sandstone. With enough heat and pressure, the sand grains lose their original shape and fuse with their neighbors, similar to how snowflakes merge into solid ice. This fusing forms a dense, durable rock that is now used to craft countertops.

Quartzite countertops are popular for their practicality and durability, but it’s worth noting that designers and architects using them have limited color choices. Because of sand’s lighter hue, quartzite is usually white or light-colored. Additional minerals carried by groundwater can impart green, blue, or ion-red hues, but it’s dependent on the specific circumstances that created that quartzite.

Whether you plan to install quartzite countertops in your home, bar, restaurant, or other commercial property, you may be weary of how unsightly stains may affect the appearance of this light material over time. In order to preserve the lasting beauty of quartzite countertops, we encourage you to invest in TuffSkin’s surface protection film.

Surface Protection Film for Quartzite Countertops

Similar to quartz, quartzite tends to be durable and difficult to scratch. Of course, not all quartzite is pure quartzite; Mother Nature can have other minerals compressed into the slab under tremendous pressure. Depending on which minerals have mixed in, they can be just as dense and difficult to scape as pure quartzite. However, that’s not always the case.

Even the strongest quartzite slabs are still prone to etches, and any surface can stain when liquids are left long enough. With TuffSkin quartzite countertop sealer, these issues can be solved and problem quartzite can once again be practical.

Made from 4-mil polyester, our surface protection film is 100% etch and stain resistant, chemical and odor-free, resists the damage of high heat, and can be removed or replaced at any time. No other quartzite sealer in the world can offer what TuffSkin can.
