I wonder how a poured concrete countertop would handle high heat?
Countertops made of recycled glass would likely be heat resistant
Probably quite well. I my VT house, I poured and tiled a slab
(laminated with Hardibacker) to the mantle over my wood stove. The
metal flue came within in inch or two of it, so it got quite hot. No
I'd assume that would depend on what the binder was and thickness.
Does it have a backer (demalination issue)?
LOL. I think you're thinking what I'm thinking. What
difference does it make which material is the "most"
heat resistant? All you need is a material that is
heat resistant enough so that you can put a typical
hot pot on it. Beyond that, who cares? Are you
going to do welding on it? And granite
is certainly heat resistant enough for counter tops.
