About Apollo Recycled Glass Worktops
Apollo Recycled Glass is composed of 70% Recycled Glass, giving a unique depth of texture as light refracts throughout the glass surface crystals.

Characteristics of Apollo Recycled Glass
Apollo Recycled Glass is produced through a range of complex procedures, which include subjecting the worktops to high levels of vibrations to remove any trapped air. This is imperative to ensuring the strength of Recycled Glass meets up to our high quality standards - achieving around 4-5 times the flexural strength of Granite. As a result of these procedures, it is common to find very small air-holes (pores) in the surface of all colours, these are not considered to be defects in the product.
Because Apollo Recycled Glass is composed of 70% recycled glass chips and powdered glass, which are random by nature, every worktop will be completely unique. Variations in tone, size, shape and pattern may occur in the worktops between different samples. As the chips found in Apollo Recycled Glass are up to 5 times the size of those in Quartz, tolerances for scratches are equally scaled. As such, any scratch not exceeding 25mm is considered within normal production parameters.
Apollo Recycled Glass Top Surface Finish
Apollo Recycled glass contains surface chips which are large compared to those found in Quartz material. These chips have a different texture and gloss level to the background, and can be seen and felt by hand.
The larger chips in Apollo Recycled Glass may have uneven surfaces, visible cracks or slightly broken edges, This is a characteristic of the material and is not considered a fault.
Apollo Recycled Glass Edge Detail Finish
The large glass chips on the edges are harder than the base material and the polishing process abrades the base material slightly more than the glass chips which can be slightly raised against the base material, these edges will be straight and smooth but slightly uneven without any broken or sharp parts, this is not a product fault.
