Lido 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 LIDO 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 Lido and considering some color options. Additionally, we will mention some fabrication equipment and supplies that professionals use for cutting and gluing Lido 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 Lido says in its material.

Made with the one of the hardest materials on earth, Lido Quartz uses state-of-the-art technology to combine the world's finest crushed quartz with an advanced polymer resin to produce the highest performing solid surface. Lido Quartz is virtually non-porous making it extremely resistant to scratching, staining, impacts and heat. The superior strength of Lido Quartz makes it versatile for any application; from quartz countertops for your kitchen tops and bathroom vanities, to shower walls and bar tops.

That's right, Lido 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.

Just because Lido surfaces are manufactured it does not mean that the color selection is minimal. No, Lido produces a number of colors designed to match various design styles that are popular for interior designers and decorators. What colors are available from Lido?

It is an elegant surface and delivers strength and durability because it is engineered quartz. In fact, the strength of Lido leads us to the next natural question, "How do I cut Lido quartz?"

How to Cut Lido Quartz

Cutting Lido 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 Lido surface using the blade that happens to be on the bridge saw at the time. The best first step to cutting Lido 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 Lido, 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 Lido 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 Lido) 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 Lido Quartz

Cutting Lido is not the only thing that fabricators are interested in knowing. Which glue to use for quartz fabrication when I am working with Lido is another main thing that professional fabricators and installers inquire about. Tenax offers color matched cartridge glue for bonding quartz materials including Lido. In fact, here is a sample of a few colors from Lido matched up with the color of Multibond that is used for gluing it:

Quartz Colors Glue Colors
Milano - LQ506 Buttercream
Rio - LQ802 Grain
Argento - LQ718 Mollusk
Stone Grey - 703 Spanish Gray
Montana - LQ714 Grizzly Bear
Charcoal - LQ719 Gunmetal
Carbon - LQ705 Midnight
Graphite - LQ702 Shale

The Tenax Quartz Bridge saw blade is designed for cutting materials in the same class as Lido. 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.
