A benchtop is much more than just a showpiece; it’s a place for socialising, cooking, sharing and living. That’s why Essastone® by Laminex® is engineered to guard against staining, scratching and citrus acid marks, making it quick and easy to clean. Made in Europe from up to 95% natural quartz, every Essastone engineered stone slab is backed by an exceptional 15 year limited warranty. The high content of natural quartz makes Essastone remarkably resilient and virtually maintenance-free. Essastone is scratch and stain resistant, however no surface, including Essastone, is indestructible. Following the care and maintenance guidelines will help you keep your Essastone surfaces looking great.

Stone Ambassador can be fabricated with any edge profile but square edges are not recommended as they are most prone to damage from chipping. The most common type is the pencil or bevelled edge. All polished edges should have a minimum radius of 4-5mm as the greater the surface area of the edge; the more resistant the edge will be to chipping. The Stone Ambassador Warranty does not cover damage to polished edges through wear-and-tear or negligence.
Essastone is adequate to any possible edge profiles, from the most popular single thickness 20 or 30mm slabs, through to laminated double thickness edge options. The minimum suggested edge detail is a 3-4mm radius on any profile. A better option is a 6mm radius. The larger the radius the more resistant it will be to accidental impacts from heavy objects. Sharp non- radiused edge profiles should never be used.
