OLEA Stone

Founded in 2007 in Sydney, OLEA imports high-quality, premium quartz surfaces. Applications in residential and commercial interiors include kitchen bench tops, splashbacks, bathroom vanities, wall paneling, furniture and more. A national leader and pioneer in its field, OLEA prides itself on its ongoing commitment to research & development, innovation and the highest quality standards. 

The Original Quartz Surface

The exceptional beauty, strength and durability of quartz ensures a product that is far superior to natural stone and other manufactured surfaces. Created from up to ~90% natural quartz aggregates, organic pigments and enhanced polymer resins, OLEA provides a surface with exceptional properties of heat, stain, scratch and chip resistance. OLEA is made from natural quartz and therefore some variation in colour and aggregate can be expected on slabs.

Manufacturing Process

OLEA stone surfaces meet exacting standards of excellence from the initial procurement of raw materials to the final quality control check. Highly skilled and trained staff members ensure the quality of a product that is unrivaled in the industry today. The manufacturing process begins with a rigorous inspection of all incoming raw materials. These are blended at a ratio of up to ~90% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins. OLEA Quartz Surfaces are manufactured through a highly automated, yet strictly monitored process that includes the following:

Feeding & Mixing

Raw materials are inspected, then fed into mixers and blended together.

 

 

Molding

The mixture is then poured into a mold and formed into slab sizes of 3,050 x 1,440 mm.

 

 

Pressing

The slab is then compacted by a special vacuum and vibration process at a pressure of 100 tonnes. 

 

Curing 

The slabs are moved to the curing kiln and heated to 90ºC for 45 minutes which gives them the ultimate strength and solidity.

 

Polishing 

Slabs are then gauged, calibrated and polished to a perfect finish in a wide range of colours and designs.

 

 

Quality Assurance

Finally, the slabs pass through quality inspection to ensure our customers receive a top quality product.
