Why Cultured Marble?

What is Cultured Marble?

Cultured marble is made of real natural marble dust. This ground up marble dust accounts for over 75% of the volume of a typical cultured marble product. When mixed with a liquid polyester resin, the marble dust forms an attractive and durable product.

Cultured Marble vs. Real Marble

Real marble is naturally porous and can stain easily. Hair coloring products, chemically reactive shampoos and conditioners, and colored liquids can cause staining problems with natural marble. Because cultured marble has a gel coated surface this makes it resistant and can withstand stains that might harm natural marble.

Cultured Marble vs. Tile
