Composites are manufactured mainly from natural quartz, one of nature’s strongest minerals - added to other natural stones such as granite or marble. The result is a uniform material that has many of the qualities of natural stone without some of drawbacks.


It is resistant to stains, scratches, most household chemicals and moderate heat. It can be used for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, tabletops, wall panelling, fireplace surrounds and more.


Composite quartz surfaces never need sealing and require very little maintenance upkeep to keep them looking like new. The hard, nonporous surface makes cleaning simple. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent are all that are necessary to maintain its lustre.


There are a number of Composite manufacturers - Augustone does not recommend any particular Company but we are happy to supply and show samples from the following four major brands - click on the name for some sample colours from that range.
