The world leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, the Cosentino Group, has added two exotic new Brazilian quartzites to its Sensa by Cosentino® Protected Natural Stone range. Launched at KBB Birmingham (4-7 March 2018), the two new colours, Taj Mahal and White Macaubas, join the Sensa Premium range and feature the exclusive Senguard NK stain protection. The Sensa by Cosentino® range now offers customers both protected granite and quartzite surfaces, offering a wider choice and a selection of striking designs.
The two new surfaces are the first quartzites to join the Sensa by Cosentino® range. Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that is composed almost entirely of quartz and is the perfect alternative for those who are looking for a natural stone that is more durable and hardwearing than traditional marbles, whilst offering a similar look. The new quartzite colours have been carefully chosen, taking into account their composition and resistance to stains once treated with the revolutionary Senguard NK stain protection that has been developed by the Cosentino research and development team for its natural stones.
Both Taj Mahal and White Macaubas offer an excellent level of stain protection, including against acidic substances commonly found in household kitchens, with no need for special daily maintenance. Anchored to the surface of the stone, the Senguard NK stain protection is also UV resistant allowing the natural stone surfaces to be used inside and out whilst still allowing the stone to breathe and preserve its natural colour. The new surfaces also offer worktop peace of mind thanks to the NSF certification that makes them safe for contact with food.
Offering a soft palette of greys and whites, this light Brazilian quartzite is marked with thin linear veining, for a distinctive and elegant look that is reminiscent of classic marble.
This new quartzite surface has a soft cream ivory background with hints of warm brown veining, making it sure to add a touch of sophisticated style to any space, sitting harmoniously in a range of settings.
Sensa by Cosentino® Protected Natural Stone surfaces all offer an impressive 15-year warranty and are available in thicknesses of 2cm and 3cm.
