Quartz agglomerate is a material produced in the form of sheets by a special process called "vacuum vibrocompaction". The sheets are obtained by mixing silica sand or pure quartz (95%) with structural polyester resin (5%) and UV-stabilized colour pigments. The resulting material is ideal for use in the production of furniture, since it maintains the physical and mechanical characteristics of the original materials.
