The comparison between neolith vs quartz will give you a good idea about the two materials commonly used during the construction of commercial and residential properties. Neolith is a revolutionary compact surface that combines high performance with variable thicknesses. Similarly, it provides solutions for countertops and worktops, flooring, cladding, paneling and facades. On the other hand, quartz stones are specified by architects, interior designers, and retail kitchen designers as they are tough and durable with a surface that is non-porous, whilst also being scratch and stain resistant.
Neolith is highly resistant in the areas of UV light, staining, and heating. It is made of 100% natural materials and is cured at 2191 degrees Fahrenheit creating a heatproof surface with complete resistance to chemicals and UV fading. In contrast, quartz stone gets affected by UV rays. This means that whereas you can use Neolith worktops for both interiors and exteriors; quartz should only be used in interiors.
Quartz worktops are manufactured using a vacuum process where crushed quartz, polyester resin, and pigments are pressed into non-porous slabs. The mix is then cured at 200 degrees Fahrenheit and vibro-compressed to take any porosity out of the slab.

Neolith can withstand up to 300 Celsius degrees of heat, meaning that you would be able to drag most pans and pots from the cooker and over onto its surface. Comparatively, most quartz stones, depending on the content of resin that a given brand may have, take up to 170 Celsius degrees of heat, which is why most stone suppliers stress that you should not place very hot objects on its surface. Further to this comparison, it is recommended to use a trivet to place hot items on either material or any other worktop for the same matter.
