Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What are the countertops made of?
The binding material is a zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) epoxy resin, which is basically a very strong plastic. The crushed glass that is used for the aggregate is mostly types that cannot otherwise be recycled, and would go directly to a landfill. Most of the glass used at Dakota Surfaces is processed in house and is acquired from local sources. These countertops end up being about 80 to 85% recycled material.
