IQ QUARTZ BRAND INFORMATION
IQ Stone price their materials more competitively than some larger companies who use lifestyle and design as a justification for higher prices, where in fact customers are only paying extra to support large marketing campaigns. IQ Quartz Stone cuts out the middle man, passing on those savings directly to customers. All materials are sourced, processed and manufactured (composite quartz) to the highest possible standards from leading international companies using the same latest technologies as other more prominent, advertised brands. All this and a comprehensive 15 year warranty from a UK company, make IQ Quartz a superb choice.
Quartz is more than beautiful. It is also one of nature’s hardest minerals. Containing up to 93% natural quartz, IQ Stone surfaces combine practicality, stunning design and a lower cost than most other manufacturers.

IQ QUARTZ CARE & CLEANING
Virtually maintenance free, IQ Stone has a hard, non-porous surface and is simple to clean. IQ Quartz requires no sealing or use of any wax polishes. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is enough to keep your IQ Stone surfaces looking like new. If necessary, you can use a non-abrasive soft soap along with a non-scratch or delicate scrub pad. Afterwards, thoroughly rinse with clean water to remove residue. Please note that IQ Stone finishes other than Polished may require increased daily maintenance due to their distinctive appearance.
Stubborn Stains and Spills
Life’s inevitable spills and stains can usually be cleaned up effortlessly with mild PH neutral detergent or cleaner and water. To remove stuck on materials, gently scrape away the excess with a plastic putty knife or non-scratch pad and then wipe with warm water. Nail varnish or chewing gum stains can be removed with denatured alcohol, rinsing thoroughly afterward. For extra-stubborn stains, a non-scratch Scotch-BriteTM pad is recommended along with a non-abrasive cleaner, which won’t dull the surface shine. Do not use anything abrasive to clean the surface.
Protection from hot temperatures
IQ Stone is more heat resistant, durable and hard-wearing than other stone surfaces, including most granites, marble and limestone. But it does need protection from very high temperatures (above 150°C or 300°F) or sudden extreme temperature changes. Therefore, we suggest that hot pots and pans never be directly placed on the surface. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be placed under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots or toaster ovens.
It’s tough, but not indestructible
Like any other surface, Quartz can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that affect its physical properties. Avoid the use of strong chemicals and solvents or highly abrasive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher polishing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels (pH levels higher than 11). Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off thoroughly. Never clean your Quartz surface with products that contain Trichlorethane or Methylene Chloride, such as paint removers or strippers. Oven cleaner products must not come into contact with any quartz surface.Do not use acid based cleaners as these may etch the surface, remove the polish or damage the resin in composite quartz. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with warm water to neutralize the effect. To avoid scratching, do not place anything on the surface that is harder than the surface itself.
