The super hard environmentally friendly composite quartz plate produced by the most advanced technology in the world, which contains up to 93% natural quartz, and also contains resin, mineral pigments, and other additives. The selected materials are extremely formed by color mixing and vacuum high pressure. The compact composite body is made by complicated slitting and surface polishing processes.
