Performance Advantages
DURABILITY

Composed of about 90 percent of natural quartz, VICOSTONE is resistant to scratches, heat, impact and the corrosive chemical agents like acids or common cleaning solvents.

SAFETY

Certified by NSF International for food safety (ANSI 51) and certified by GREENGUARD for indoor air quality safety in commercial and residential facilities, including facilities for vulnerable populations like hospitals and schools, VICOSTONE is made to be applied to interior design. It is especially well-suited for kitchen applications.

LOW MAINTENANCE

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 keeps your kitchen clean and safe to use.

International Trustworthy Certificates about Safety
NSF INTERNATIONAL

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

GREENGUARD & GREENGUARD GOLD

All Vicostone quartz surfaces comply with American GEI (GREENGUARD Environmental Institute) certification which verifies that VICOSTONE products meet the most stringent indoor air emission standards. The GREENGUARD Gold 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.

MICROBIAL RESISTANCE

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

International Trustworthy Certificates and Membership
LBC DECLARATION

All VICOSTONE products are verified to contain absolutely no materials on the Living Building Challenge Red List. Vicostone is part of the Declare Product database to provide transparent and responsible reporting of our environmental impact.

CE

The CE marking highlights VICOSTONE’s commitment to providing the market with the best quartz surfaces in the world.

US GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL

VICOSTONE is member of USGBC – a non-profit organization committed to expanding sustainable building practices.
