What are composite worktops?

There are many different types of composite materials, including metal, ceramic and building composites, which are used in a wide range of settings. However, when we hear the word ‘composite’, composite worktops are probably the first thing that springs to mind.

Used in both bathroom and kitchen settings, composite worktops bring together polymer resin, bonding agents, different types of minerals and colour pigments, to create highly durable worktops that are scratch resistant, 100% hygienic and heat resistant.

This makes composite worktops ideal for meeting the demands of everyday life, especially in the kitchen.

How to clean composite worktops

The kitchen is one of the busiest spaces in the home, where we gather to cook, dine and mingle with family and friends. So, it’s easy to see how your kitchen can get messy, quickly.

The good news is that composite workshops are incredibly easy to keep clean and can be wiped down with a damp cloth and washing up liquid, quickly and easily. For stubborn spills and stains, anti-bactericidal surface cleaners will help tackle grease and grime, while leaving the surface sparkling clean.

How do composite worktops differ to other pure stone worktops?

Unlike pure stone worktops, composite worktops are man-made by mixing a variety of materials together, including quartz and resin. One of the main benefits of composite worktops is that colour can be introduced through glass or mirrored chips to create an impactful and interesting speckled appearance.

Composite worktops are also available in a wide range of finishes and shades. Unlike pure stone worktops, which can melt if exposed to hot pots and pans, composite worktops are heat resistant.
