About the product

Elements is extremely resistant to heat, scratches and stains from food, juices, wine, coffee, tea, and nail polish. The nonporous natural quartz-based surface is harder, stronger and easier to care for than other stone surfaces because it does not require sealing with chemical-based conditioners, polishers or wax. Elements is 100% recyclable at the end of its life, VOC free, with each square foot incorporating three post-consumer recycled glass bottles. Extremely durable, Elements can also be recycled through the company’s Dust-to-Dust program. The eco-friendly, countertop surface contributes to LEED certification. Elements is one of the first recycled content countertops to receive NSF 51 International certified as safe for food contact, SCS certification for recycled content, and has achieved GREENGUARD for Children and Schools® and Indoor Air Quality Certified® – so there is no safer surface available to consumers.
