Solera Calacatta Epic Quartz
Solera Calacatta Epic quartz is an exquisite stone with a white stone base and soft shades of grey to cast a gentle and clean atmosphere for your kitchen or bathroom. Its simple white stone can serve to either brighten a darker tone room or highlight a decorative centerpiece. Calacatta Epic pairs exceptionally well with a backsplash made from the same material to have your entire room to have a marble-like theme.
Solera Calacatta Epic quartz is designed to look just like Calacatta marble, but it has all the strength and benefits of quartz. Being artificially designed, Solera Calacatta Epic quartz has a hardness of 7 out of 10 on the MOHS hardness scale. It is strong enough to withstand most forms of damage against scratching, staining, chipping and heat. This stone doesn’t need any additional sealing once installed, and it is very easy to take care of with only a daily cleaning of a soft cloth, warm water and mild dish soap. For best utilization, install Solera Calacatta Epic as your kitchen countertop, kitchen backsplash, bathroom vanity, bathroom backsplash, washroom, or indoor bar.
