Zodiaq Countertops

Quartz based kitchen countertops

Zodiaq Countertops

Zodiaq kitchen countertops are a new quartz-based product made by the DuPont company. The Zodiaq range was released in 2000 to much praise from the building industry. Zodiaq surfaces take the best elements of natural granite and quartz surfaces (namely their sparkling, speckled beauty and incredibly hard-wearing nature) and improve them by making them non-porous and available in a large range of colors. Zodiaq has an incredibly smooth finish and the way lights play off its surface will draw visitors to your home towards it like a magnet.

With 26 colors now in the Zodiaq range, you have a good chance of finding one that will match the decor of your home. Zodiaq colors cover the spectrum from white to black and everything in between, such as their striking Copper Sunset and Borealis Blue shades.

Zodiaq is made from crushed quartz, and a small amount of pigmented resin, which is then baked. The surface is extremely dense and non-porous, meaning it is heat-resistant, chemical resistant and easy to clean. However, Zodiaq is not scratch proof and DuPont do not recommend placing hot pots and pans directly on the surface, as it is not entirely heat proof.

Zodiaq has many uses in the home – from kitchen countertops to bathroom surfaces and even wall panels. Zodiaq surfaces can be cleaned with just a sponge and water, or with a mild non-abrasive, non-bleach cleaner for more stubborn marks. Zodiaq also comes with the assurance of a 10 year warranty against manufacturing defects. Prices of Zodiaq countertops range from $50-$90 per square foot, depending on the color and other options chosen by the buyer.
