Trend Q is a series of terrazzo-like engineered stone tiles and slabs that includes numerous colors with recycled glass content. The material is composed of approximately 93% "grit", or chips, and 7% pigmented polyester resin. The grit, which is comprised of either quartz, porcelain, granite, glass, or mosaic, is crushed into nine different granule sizes. These granules are mixed with the pigmented polyester resin and spread onto a large sheet mold where the slab takes its shape. After finishing the surface to a high polish, the slab is fitted with a mesh backing and is either left intact or cut into standard or custom tiles. A few of the most popular features of this material include:
Very Large Format = Fewer Grout Lines
Custom Water Jet Cuts = Sweeping Curves
Suitable for Heavy Commercial Traffic Flooring
Extremely Durable. Stain & Scratch Resistant.
Lightweight. 1/4" Thickness = Saves on Shipping Costs
Low Everyday Maintenance and Maintenance Costs
Custom Colors Available (Minimum 4,000 square feet)
Non-Porous. Does Not Require Sealing. Fast Installation.

In response to the evolving global perspective towards environmentally friendly construction, many new and re-mastered colors in Trend Q contain measured amounts of either post-consumer or post-industrial recycled materials.
Fifteen colors contain various percentages of post-consumer recycled content, and twenty contain 70% post-industrial recycled material. Fourteen colors are made by more traditional means. The percentage of recycled content for each color is noted in the product captions.
Trend Q is suitable for high traffic areas and provides is a flexible tile with low maintenance, high scratch resistance and high thermal shock resistance. Tiles are suitable for interior and exterior walls and floors, including heavy-traffic commercial flooring applications.
