Does artificial/engineered marble pose a risk to health?
Yes, when cut or worked in any way that creates dust. Engineered marble, also known as artificial marble, is a popular alternative to natural marble, especially for worktops. The composition of artificial marble will vary compared to natural marble, with artificial marble usually containing crushed marble bound in a resin. The RCS content of artificial marble may be as high as 30%.
