Irah Quartz Quartz Surfaces
Irah Quartz is an engineered quartz material designed for use in kitchens and bathrooms by designers, decorators, and homeowners as well as fabricators and other professionals. The Irah Quartz website is the place for obtaining more information about this brand of quartz material. In this article we are going to briefly consider some basic points about quartz by looking at Irah Quartz and considering some color options. Additionally, we will mention some fabrication equipment and supplies that professionals use for cutting and gluing Irah Quartz surfaces as well as other quartz materials.
Quartz engineered surfaces are touted as a material that offers a number of features that many find very appealing. In fact, no matter what brand of quartz you read up on you will find comments about the innovation of the company, the durability of the quartz material, and the scratch resistance that quartz offers. You might even find that some quartz manufactures market it as being superior to natural stone. Nearly every quartz brand will make at least one statement that either alludes to or directly says something related to one of those features. Notice what Irah Quartz says in its material.
Engineered stones are made of quarried natural stones and quartz crystals, combined with resin, polymers, and pigments. The quartz material is compressed into slabs that have similar color and texture to natural stone. In terms of look, most Engineered Quartz is more uniform in appearance and displays color consistency throughout the slab.
That's right, Irah Quartz is confident in the quality of its material. Why wouldn't they be? After all, quartz surfaces are chosen be many professionals for a variety of reasons.

In fact, the strength of Irah Quartz leads us to the next natural question, "How do I cut Irah Quartz quartz?"
How to Cut Irah Quartz Quartz
Cutting Irah Quartz is a fabrication task that can be easy if you have the proper machines and use the correct tooling for cutting quartz. 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 your Irah Quartz surface using the blade that happens to be on the bridge saw at the time. The best first step to cutting Irah Quartz is to grab the proper quartz 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 blades and other tools for cutting quartz.
Bridge Saw Blades
If you are going to be cutting Irah Quartz, 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 Irah Quartz 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 Irah Quartz) 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.
Cartridge Adhesives for Irah Quartz Quartz
Cutting Irah Quartz is not the only thing that fabricators are interested in knowing. Which glue to use for quartz fabrication when I am working with Irah Quartz is another main thing that professional fabricators and installers inquire about. Tenax offers color matched cartridge glue for bonding quartz materials including Irah Quartz. In fact, here is a sample of a few colors from Irah Quartz matched up with the color of Multibond that is used for gluing it:
The Tenax Quartz Bridge saw blade is designed for cutting materials in the same class as Irah Quartz. These blades for quartz cut cleanly and quickly. Using them as described on the product page will ensure that your cuts and projects turn out the best they can be.
