Performance Advantages


Composed about 90 percent of natural Quartz, VICOSTONE is resistant to scratch, heat, impact and the corrosive chemical agents such as: acids, common cleaning solvents. That makes VICOSTONE superior to granite and other natural stones.


Certified by NSF for food safety (ANSI 51) and certified by GreenGuard as being safe for indoor air quality of commercial and residential facilities as well as for children and schools, VICOSTONE is made to be applied in interior design, especially for kitchen applications.


VICOSTONE is stain resistant, that means you can easily clean VICOSTONE surfaces by using just a mild soap with warm water. While granite and marble will need to be resealed periodically, VICOSTONE sustains its superior features and keep your kitchen clean and safe to use.

International Trustworthy Certificates about Safety


Vicostone has been credited by the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) for having surfaces safe enough for use in laboratories, healthcare facilities, and food preparation environments (ANSI 051).


All Vicostone quartz surfaces comply with American GEI (GREENGUARD Environmental Institute) certification which verifies that VICOSTONE’s products meet the most stringent indoor air emission standards. GREENGUARD Gold (Children & Schools) standard, evaluates the sensitive nature of school populations combined with the unique building characteristics found in schools, and presents the most rigorous product emissions criteria to date.


Passing Microbial resistance (D6329-98) test at the lab of Greenguard - Georgia, the VICOSTONE Quartz Surfaces products meet standards to prevent the growth of bacteria.
