Smartstone is where the beauty of natural stone meets the durability of quartz. It is the ultimate choice for stone kitchen benchtops, as well as the ideal surface for an almost-endless array of interior applications. Smartstone surfaces are meticulously sourced globally to meet our exacting standards of durability, sustainability and innovation. Offering excellent value, Smartstone is the smartest way to enjoy the prestige of natural stone benchtops without the price-tag.
Smartstone is a surface material composed of a minimum of 93% natural quartz, resins used as a binding agent and pigments. Smartstone’s veined surfaces are manufactured using advanced technology to create the most natural looking surfaces available in engineered stone. Smartstone is extremely resistant to staining. We’ve tested coffee, tea, fruit juices, liquid food colouring, Coca-Cola, red wine and olive oil and these substances did not leave stains on Smartstone. (Testing performed by CSIRO)
Style and Edging
Smartstone 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 Smartstone Warranty does not cover damage to polished edges through wear-and-tear or negligence.
To achieve the best possible finish, Smartstone recommends a mitred edge for the Naturale Collection.
