Caesarstone quartz manufacturing process

Caesarstone surfaces meet exacting standards of excellence from the initial procurement of raw materials to the final quality control check.

Highly skilled and trained staff ensure the quality of a product that is unrivalled in the industry today. The manufacturing process begins with a rigorous inspection of all incoming raw materials blended at a ratio of up to ~90% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins.

We manufacture Caesarstone quartz surfaces and worktops through a highly automated yet strictly monitored process that includes the following steps:

1. Feeding and mixing

The raw materials (quartz, pigments and polymers) are carefully selected, tested, and mixed.

2. Moulding and pressing

The mixture is then poured into a mould and formed into large format slabs. Next, it is compressed under very high pressure (nearly 100 tons psi) and vibrated in a vacuum. This process removes all the air and creates a compressed surface.

3. Curing

The slabs are then moved to the curing kiln and heated to 90°C for 45 minutes, providing the finished levels of strength and solidity.

4. Polishing

The slabs are gauged, calibrated and then polished to a perfect finish in a wide range of colours and designs.

5. Quality Testing

Every slab then undergoes rigorous quality testing to ensure it meets our incredibly high standards of colour, hue, and consistency standards.

6. Tagging

The slabs are then labelled, sorted and tagged, and enter our distribution system to ensure they reach our customers in perfect condition.
