BioQuartz® guarantees the final product to possess identical technical and aesthetic features as conventional quartz used in Engineered Stone manufacturing processes.
BioQuartz: the crystalline-silica-free industrial quartz
Discover more about BioQuartz®, the final solution to silicosis developed by Breton.
Silicosis: a serious issue
Silicosis can be described as a long-term lung disease caused by inhaling unsafe levels of silica dust, usually over a period of many years.
Silicosis can lead to breathing problems, a serious lung condition called Progressive Massive Fibrosis (PMF), or lung cancer.
To ensure worker safety and longevity for the Engineered Stone business, Breton has developed ready-to-use solution know as Bioquartz®.
The final solution
Over the past decade, Breton and its Institute of Technology (BIT) have prioritized operator safety and waste reduction as strategic goals.
This commitment has led to the development of Bioquartz®: an industrial material 100% crystalline-silica-free, totally safe for operators and with the same technical features as quartz.
Bioquartz® is produced through a pyrolitic transformation of common siliceous and feldspar natural sands, or residues of slab manufacturing process.
- / 01As natural quartz
BioQuartz® ensures 100% safety for human health, providing Companies with a significant reputation advantage when incorporating this raw material into their production process./ 02Safe for the operator
The sludges and residual mixtures from the BretonStone® Quartz Slabs plant can be utilized as raw materials, making it a circular solution that not only reduces production costs but also promotes the adoption of circular business models./ 03Zero-waste solution
BioQuartz® is available in super white and semi-transparent colors, with the innovative production process for Super-White BioQuartz® being a patented technology developed by Breton./ 04Patented technology
