Zodiaq® Counter FAQ

What is a DuPont™ Zodiaq® Counter?
A DuPont™ Zodiaq® counter brings together the beauty of natural quartz with DuPonts technology in order to create new and innovative countertop possibilities. Since Zodiaq® is constructed of 93% quartz, it is able to combine the unusual light play and the depth of quartz crystals along side exceptional clarity in a vast range of vibrant colors. Quartz is also known as one of the hardest natural minerals.

Can a Zodiaq® Counter be used in a food preparation area?
DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz countertopsare non-porous and can easily and safely be used in a kitchen, or anywhere food is prepared.
What are the design capabilities of a Zodiaq® Counter?
Zodiaq® can be used for seemingly anything, including walls and countertops. There are tons of edge treatments available increasing the total number of styles available. During fabrication, however, special diamond cutting tools must be used due to the extreme hardness of the material.
What kind of care and maintenance is required fora Zodiaq® Counter?
Zodiaq® quartz surfaces are extremely easy to maintain mainly because of their durability, their non-porous surface and their resistance to chemicals. Zodiaq®Coutners require no sealants or waxes in order to retain their natural gloss and their ultra-smooth surface. Day to day cleaning can be done with a damp paper towel or cloth and, if it is necessary, a tiny amount of a non-bleach and non-abrasive cleanser.
How effective is Zodiaq® at withstanding heat, scratches and stains?
A Zodiaq® Counter is resilient against heat, scratches and stains. Despite its resilience, we still recommend the use of hot pads or trivets when dealing with hot items. A cutting board is also recommended when slicing or chopping food, especially if you are using a serrated knife. Spills should also be wiped up as quickly as possible. You can use a nonabrasive cleaning pad along with a non-bleach cleaner to assist in the removal of stubborn or dried spills.
Is it possible to use Zodiaq® and Corian® together?
Yes. For example a Corian® sink can easily be installed inside a Zodiaq® Counter. It is even possible for each material to be inlaid within one another. This can be done either along the edges or on top of the surfaces if you’re after a dramatic design statement. Just as both Zodiaq® and Corian® can be combined with each other, they can also be combined with various other materials including: chrome, stainless steel, glass and/or brass.
