What are the unique features of this type of marble effect quartz surface?
The unique feature of this type of quartz surface is the ability to achieve a marble effect with high definition whilst still having the same properties as other quartz surfaces.
This quartz surface is also available in various colours, replicating the colours of famous marbles such as Statuario and Calacatta Gold. All the colours comprise the addition of different minerals, creating natural effects. The amount and type of minerals in each formula will determine the intensity and shade of each colour.
What is the difference between Compac Unique Calacatta Macchia Vecchia polished and Glace finish?
There are two main types of finishes: the Compac Unique Calacatta Macchia Vecchia Glace finish and the Macchia Vecchia polished. The Polished finish is a high-gloss finish achieved by polishing the stone’s surface with a diamond pad. The Glace finish is a matte texture achieved by tumbling the quartz fascia in a rotary drum. Both finishes are available in various colours and formats.
The main difference between the two finishes is that the Polished finish has a higher shine, while the Macchia Vecchia finish has more of a matte look. The Glace finish is also more resistant to staining and scratching, making it a good choice for high-traffic areas.
Where does Compac Unique Calacatta Macchia Vecchia come from?
Calacatta Macchia Vecchia is a type of quartz stone from CompacThe Surfaces Company in Gandia, a region of Valencia, Spain. It is a white marble effect worktop with grey veining, replicating the natural Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble from north Italy.
You can use this Compac quartz surface for floors, kitchen worktops, backsplashes and walls. In addition, you can also use it in utility rooms, parties, fireplaces and architectural projects. Because this type of marble is prevalent since ancient times, installing the modern version of Compac quartz will bring an air of refined classism
to any space.
What is the difference between Compac Calacatta Macchia Vecchia and other quartz worktops?
The main difference between this quartz surface and other types of stone is its veining.
The veins are thin and narrow like threads, giving them a uniform colour throughout the slab. It also has a beautiful grain structure, giving it an elegant, refined quality.
What is the best way to clean Compac Calacatta Macchia Vecchia? First, use a non-abrasive, natural stone cleaner such as our Windowlene. It will be gentle on the stone and will not leave behind any residue. Then, use a microfibre cloth to avoid leaving marks. Is that simple!
