As you may know, last year several tariffs were applied to Chinese quartz surfacing imports, adding more than 300% to the cost of quartz being imported from China.
In an attempt to circumvent these tariffs, some Chinese quartz companies are substituting fine-grained glass powder for quartz sand. A new request has been filed to add what is termed as “quartz glass” to the products in the antidumping/countervailing tariffs list.
While no one can be sure when or if this new proposed tariff on glass quartz materials from China will take effect, professionals and their customers wishing to fully protect themselves and eliminate risk of financial and supply disruption due to possible future tariffs may want to consider avoiding these new materials.
At the end of the day, if you're a fabricator or design and construction professional who wants a long-term solution that minimizes risk to your supply chain and offers strong value, consider partnering with a North American quartz supplier.
