Artificial stone countertop processing and introduction to the advantages of artificial stone countertops
Before learning how to process artificial stone countertops, let's take a look at the advantages of artificial stone countertops and whether it is worth processing.
The advantages of artificial stone countertops
1. There is no color difference, light weight: users do not need to buy artificial stone Worried about the effect of the cabinet due to the color difference. The artificial stone surface has no pores, oil stains and water stains are not easy to penetrate into it, and it has strong stain resistance and is easy to clean. Artificial stone is made of stone powder, which is thinner and lighter than natural artificial stone. In application, it can reduce the load-bearing capacity of the cabinet and prolong its service life.
2. Can be seamlessly spliced: this is one of the biggest characteristics of artificial stone. Everyone uses U-shaped and L-shaped cabinets, and many of them will be curved doors, etc. Therefore, the special-shaped processing performance of the artificial stone is relatively high, and the artificial stone just meets this characteristic, and can be processed with special-shaped shapes to achieve seamless splicing.
3. More environmentally friendly and healthier: Artificial stone countertops are pressed from natural mineral powder, high-performance resin and natural pigments, so it is determined that the artificial stone has very good environmental protection and can be in direct contact with food .
4. Artificial stone has the color and texture of natural artificial stone, and can be divided into different series, each series has multiple colors. When purchasing, you can choose artificial stone with suitable texture and color to match different home colors and decoration grades.
How to process artificial stone
The artificial stone can be processed into tall decorations, but the untreated artificial stone The stone does not meet the requirements for direct processing, so it needs to be maintained first, so that the future quality can be guaranteed.
There are many capillary channels in the untreated stone that are invisible to the human eye. Various water-based and oily dirt can easily enter the artificial stone through these pipes, or the rust on the surface of the building components and the iron contained in the artificial stone itself. The calcium compounds in salt and cement seep out of the artificial stone surface through these capillary channels under the action of water, leading to the occurrence of various'pathological changes', which require waterproof and antifouling treatments.
The surface of the polished artificial stone is slippery when exposed to water, and the friction coefficient of the wet artificial stone surface may be as low as 0.2. It is not safe to walk on artificial stone ground, and anti-skid treatment is required. The artificial stone in use will have scars and defects on the surface due to wear and tear, and needs to be refurbished. Under the influence of various external factors such as ultraviolet rays, oxygen, water vapor, acid gas, various dust in the atmosphere and external forces, the artificial stone in use will appear surface loss, abrasion and color darkening. Add new colors and brightening treatments. The color of dyed artificial stone should be fixed, and the color retention period should be extended as much as possible. The effect of modified products for artificial stone should be as long as possible to reduce unnecessary labor and material costs and affect normal use. Therefore, in order to prolong the service life of artificial stone, correct care of artificial stone is essential.
After processing, the use and appearance of artificial stone can be improved.
Finally, I want to remind everyone that although artificial stone countertops are a high-quality countertop product, according to cost analysis, when consumers choose countertops It is recommended not to buy artificial stone countertops less than 1,000 yuan, because its quality is difficult to guarantee.
