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.
Colors + Finishes
There are 49 colors in the Trend Q standard color line, with more to be added soon. Due to the nature of the product, finishes vary from color to color but typically range from a high-polish to a semi-polished surface.
Custom colors may be produced for projects meeting the minimum order requirements of 4,000 sq/ft.
Trend Q is also offered in various graphics using a new sublimation technique, incorporating modern technology to print standard patterns or custom designs onto the engineered stone. The patterns are tattooed into the Trend material, resulting in a higher abrasion resistance. Trend Sublimation is suitable for interior and exterior walls and floors, including light-traffic commercial flooring applications. Sampling of standard items available in 3-5 days. Sampling of custom designs available in approximately 5-10 days. For more information, contact your Stone Source Sales Consultant.

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.
The percentage of recycled content for each color is noted in the product captions.
