What are DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces?
DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces bring the beauty of natural quartz together with DuPont™ technology to create new and exciting possibilities. Because Zodiaq® is made of 93% quartz, it combines the unusual light play and depth of quartz crystals with exceptional clarity in a broad range of radiant colors. Quartz is also one of the hardest naturally occurring materials.

Can Zodiaq® be used in food preparation areas?
DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces are nonporous and can be used in the kitchen, or wherever food is prepared.


What are the design capabilities of DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces?
Zodiaq® can be used for walls and countertops. A wide variety of edge treatments are also possible. Due to the extreme hardness of the material, special diamond cutting tools must be used in fabrication.


What care and maintenance does Zodiaq® require?
Zodiaq® quartz surfaces are very easy to maintain because they are durable, nonporous and chemical-resistant. They require no sealants or waxes to retain their lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface. Routine cleaning may be done with a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary, a small amount of non-bleach, nonabrasive cleanser.

How well does Zodiaq® withstand heat, scratches and stains?
Zodiaq® is resistant to heat, scratching and staining. However, the use of trivets or hot pads is recommended. A cutting board should be used when slicing or chopping, especially with a serrated knife. Spills should be wiped up quickly; a nonabrasive cleaning pad and a non-bleach cleaning product may be used to remove stubborn or dried spills.


Where can Zodiaq® be purchased?
Zodiaq® is available in North America through DuPont's distribution network. The product is also available on a limited basis in Europe.


Can Zodiaq® and Corian® be used together?
Yes. A Corian® sink can be installed in a Zodiaq® countertop, for example. Each material can be inlaid into the other, either along the edges or on the surfaces, for a dramatic design statement. Just as both Zodiaq® and Corian® may be combined with other materials-such as chrome, stainless steel, glass or brass-they can also be combined with each other.
