Color: Background color goes from black to brown with wavy veinings from white to beige.
It doesn’t fear heat, however it’s suggested to use a heat resistant mat; it can also be scratched or ruined, and for this it’s suggested to use a cutting board.
For a good maintenance we suggest to clean with water or neutral/slightly alkaline detergents, specific for marble. It’s necessary to repeat periodically (at least once in a year but it depends on the use and on the maintenance of the client) the surface treatment with the specific treatment indicated, underlining that the use of protections doesn’t make the top immune from acidic and greasy substances, but it simply delays the effect of them. Always clean the top when the stain is fresh even from water, to avoid the insurgence of limescale stains
Description of the material:
Cappuccino is a soft-quartzite with a superficial design that reminds of an aged wood. Being a natural material, it could have veinings different time after time, iron intrusions, oxidations, concentrations of color, light and dark stains even in the same slab. Being also a non-homogeneous material, with very hard areas (dark) and soft areas (light), it has a non-homogeneous polished finishing, with more opaque portions. There could be magrosity, breaks, grouted, resined or rebuilt veinings. With opaque, lether and brushed surfaces there could be more or less deep dips, extended or located, even superficial or along the edges. In the sandblasted finishing, in addition to a non-homogenous surface but irregular, near the softer areas there is the insurgence of micro holes and scales which will be sealed with grout and wax.
Vulnerable to products such as:
– cleaning products not specifically intended for marble, and especially limescale removers,
– acidic and oily substances (cola, lemon juice, citrus, fruit juices, wine,
vinegar, oil, coffee, etc.), which might stain or dull the material.
