New advancements in technology have brought a multitude of engineered quartz options to the market that can closely mimic the look of natural marble without any of the natural imperfections. By fusing natural quartz with polymer resins, quartz becomes more durable and requires less maintenance than natural stone. With many marble looks to choose from in the PentalQuartz line, there’s a color for every design.
PentalTek is one of the latest releases from Pental Surfaces combining the strength and durability of a porcelain slab with the sophisticated design of marble surfaces.
PentalTek’s gauged porcelain panels provide the seamless look of continuous natural stone with little routine maintenance. From large kitchen islands, long stretches of countertops, expanses of walls and even flooring, porcelain slabs are a beautiful option for achieving a natural marble look with minimal grout lines. Bookmatched PentalTek slabs can also make a bold design statement as seen above.
