We can assure you that Caesarstone surfaces installed in the home are absolutely not harmful to the consumer.
Caesarstone quartz surfaces are completely safe for domestic use and comply with the strictest local and international safety standards for consumer use.
Caesarstone quartz surfaces are in use today in many environments that require the strictest standards of cleanliness and sterility and in millions of homes around the world.
The health risk lies in the processing procedure, if performed not in accordance with safety legal requirements, and not in the surfaces themselves.
A small amount of silica dust could be produced during installation or repair of Caesarstone quartz surfaces in the end user's home. This poses no health threat to the end user such as silicosis and other fatal diseases caused by silica dust, which are developed only as a result of ongoing occupational exposure to silica dust. Silicosis is purely an occupational disease.
