Stone Ambassador surfaces are materials composed of 93% natural quartz, resins used as a binding agent and pigments. Stone Ambassadors veined surfaces are manufactured using advanced technology to create the most natural looking surfaces available in engineered stone.
Yes. Stone Ambassador is fundamentally non-porous and perfectly suited for residential and commercial kitchen areas and food preparation areas. Stone Ambassador is compliant with the International Health and Safety Foundation sanitary standard NSF51 and Green Guard certifications that guarantees that its quartz-based surfaces are safe for use in all food environments.
Stone Ambassador is ideal for kitchen bench tops, custom furniture applications, splash backs, bathroom vanity tops, bath and shower surrounds and almost any internal bench top application. Stone Ambassador is also widely used in commercial applications.
Stone Ambassador gives you the natural beauty of stone but with a harder surface. Quartz stone is known for its endurance and tough combination of minerals, therefore Stone Ambassador offers superior durability and the practical benefits of being: – chip resistant – chemical resistant – non porous – mould and mildew resistant – heat resistant – scratch resistant – stain resistant
Stone Ambassador can be fabricated with any edge profile but square edges are not recommended as they are most prone to damage from chipping. The most common type is the pencil or bevelled edge. All polished edges should have a minimum radius of 4-5mm as the greater the surface area of the edge; the more resistant the edge will be to chipping. The Stone Ambassador Warranty does not cover damage to polished edges through wear-and-tear or negligence.
Stone Ambassador is not recommended for external use. Outdoor applications of Stone Ambassador Quartz are not covered by Stone Ambassador’s 10-year Limited Warranty.
Stone Ambassador’s bench tops are stain resistant. We have independently tested our stone with common household goods such as red wine, olive oil, coffee, fruits and spices.
