Food Contact Safe

NFS Certification

NFS - National Sanitation FoundationThe OTM Quartz Collection has received NSF®-51 Certification from NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) International.

The presence of the NSF Mark on our quartz means that it has been evaluated, tested and certified by NSF International as meeting to the commercial food equipment standards. OTM Quartz is perfectly safe for food contact and do not support the growth of any kind of bacteria, mold or mildew, thereby can be used for food service areas in restaurants, healthcare and educational facilities, office buildings and other spaces.

To earn the right to use the NSF Mark, OTM Quartz not only meets the stringent evaluation and testing requirements of NSF/ANSI Standard 51, but also passes rigorous, unannounced inspections of its production facilities, which are conducted on a routine basis.

  • By its nature, quartz is “Bacteriostatic,” therefore it’s ideal to make worktops for both private and public locations
  • OTM Quartz is also tested for “Splash Zone” by NSF, therefore, it’s suitable for residential applications (kitchen tops) and commerical food distribution (restaurants and catering).
  • It does not contain, nor does it release harmful “volatile organic compounds (VOC-free),” therefore, it can be safely used inside buildings.
