Coante is based on a formulation that provides quartz particles, polyester resin, pigments, and other raw materials to perfectly combine into a composition so as to form a completely compact and homogenous structure. All raw materials used in manufacturing are strictly controlled by Coante R&D Department according to stringent criteria and composed via special mixing processes to be moulded which are then, by the help of a vibro compression system, solidified into slabs of nonporous compact structure, and furnaced.

Coante is a hard material owing to the properties of its quartz composition. Though its physical endurance is also limited, it is more resistant against scratches and impact than all the other countertop materials. In order to avoid damages that can arise despite the advantages of your product, we recommend that you use a cutting board instead of directly cutting on the countertop and avoid dropping or placing heavy objects onto it. Thanks to its perfect structure Coante is not affected, unlike other countertop materials, by liquids such as wine, nail polish or food like lemon and vinegar that can easily stain other countertop materials. Yet however, strictly avoid any contact between your Coante countertop and thinners, paint removers, furniture cleaners, drain openers, oven cleaners, concentrate detergents for industrial use, grout cleaners and strong acidic and alkaline chemicals containing trichloroethane or methylene chloride.  Coante is resistant against short term high heat. However, you must always use a trivet/table mat to place objects like hot pots or pans taken out of oven or cooker that may cause a sudden temperature change. 

Coante products are available with two types of finishes; Polished surface for those who like lustre, and Touch surface who wish to feel the silky touch.   

We call it Bookmatching where two or more adjoining long veined slabs are polished and put together to appear as an opened book, each reflecting the same pattern to form a mirror effect of each other. You can prefer Bookmatched products to create an exquisite effect symmetry in your living areas.
