Aurea Stone Quartz Surfaces
Aurea Stone is an engineered quartz material designed to mimic the look of natural marble stone. The Aurea Stone website makes the following statement regarding the resemblance of natural marble:
The only quartz with high definition character movement evident in its sharp, clean, tight lines, which in previous generation quartz often appear blurry or washed out.
The only quartz with translucency equivalent to real marble. Indications of this depth are evident through soft and subtle undertones of color beneath the surfaces. Earlier generation quartz has a more two-dimensional appearance.
The only quartz with a grainless surface, resulting in better light reflection and higher shine.
That's right, Aurea Stone Quartz is designed to give you the look of natural marble with the benefits of owning quartz countertops. The Aurea Stone color selection is as follows:
Each of the above colors and patterns are designed to mimic the look of a particular type of marble pattern that is found in nature. So if you are looking for quartz countertops that are a spot on match for natural marble, you might want to look into Aurea Quartz. It is as elegant as natural marble and delivers the strength of quartz. In fact, the strength of Aurea leads us to the next natural question, "How do I cut it?"
How to Cut Aurea Stone Quartz
Cutting Aurea Stone is a fabrication task that can be easy if you have the proper machines and use the correct tooling to make your cuts. There are plenty of blades on the market for use on various kinds of equipment. However, it is not wise to simply reach for the blade closest to you or just cut you Aurea Stone surface using the blade that happened to be on the bridge saw at the time. The best first step to cutting Aurea Stone is to grab the proper blade.
You might be asking yourself, "What is the proper blade?" That is a great question. And to answer it, we need to get an idea of what quartz surfaces need in the way of proper blades and other tools.
Bridge Saw Blades
If you are going to be cutting Aurea Stone, you need to have a machine and a blade that will do the trick. There are a number of machines that are made for cutting all types of stone materials; including quartz. The kind of saw you use to cut Aurea Quartz will most likely be a matter of personal preference. However, the blade needs to be designed in such a way that it can perform well on quartz surfaces. Why is that?
It helps to know a little bit about quartz materials to help you select a blade that performs well. Quartz is a very hard material. It is engineered from minerals that are harder than some granite. This means that the bridge saw blade you select will need to be able to cut hard stone. Additionally, since quartz (including Aurea Stone) is so hard, the blade needs to be able to cut it cleanly too. We have designed a quartz blade that is engineered to perform this task very well.
The Tenax Quartz Bridge saw blade is designed for cutting materials in the same class as Aurea Stone. These blades for quartz cut cleanly and quickly. Using them as described on the product page will ensure that your cuts and projects trun out the best they can be.
