Stone countertops are generally divided into artificial stone countertops and natural stone countertops. What are the classification characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of these two types of stone countertops?

Classification and characteristics of stone cabinet countertops

Natural stone cabinet countertops

Advantages: natural stone The texture is very beautiful, the texture is hard, the anti-scratch performance is very outstanding, and the wear resistance is good; the natural stone has pores, it is easy to accumulate grease, and the natural marble is brittle. It is not possible to make a countertop with a width of more than 1 meter. There will be seams, these seams are also easy to hide dirt and affect hygiene; the cost is low, and the colors are different. The most commonly used ones are only a few hundred yuan per meter. They are an economical countertop material. The price of high-end natural stone countertops is also around 1,000 yuan.

Disadvantages: the two pieces of splicing cannot be integrated, and the gap is easy to breed bacteria; the natural stone has a high density, although it is more than hard, but it is not elastic. If it is hit hard, it will crack and it is difficult to repair, and some are invisible. Natural cracks will also crack when the temperature changes sharply.

Artificial stone cabinet countertops

Advantages: Artificial stone is more wear-resistant, acid-resistant, high-temperature resistant, impact resistance, compression resistance, flexural resistance, penetration resistance and other functions are also strong, and its deformation , Bonding, and turning lamp parts are unique; because there are no pores on the toilet surface, oil and water stains are not easy to penetrate into it, so it has strong anti-fouling power and can be seamlessly bonded at any length. After the blocks are bonded, they are polished and become a whole body.

Disadvantage: The price is higher.

The difference between quartz stone, marble and artificial stone

Marble is based on natural stone. Advantages of use: durable , The material color is quartz stone, which cannot be made from artificial stone. Disadvantages: The stone has high radiation and has holes inside, which is easy to mold.

Artificial stone is cheaper and softer; the disadvantages are that the material is soft and easy to scratch, and its anti-leakage performance is not good, and it is prone to plumes, easy to be polluted, and its fire resistance is not high. High resin content.

Quartz stone is not easy to scratch, its main content is 95% quartz sand (silica), and its mineral texture is hard, with a Mohs hardness of 7.5, which is comparable to the hardness of diamond, not easy to scratch, and Has a certain sterilization and disinfection effect. Metal objects etc. cannot scratch it. It is not easy to be polluted. The quartz stone is produced under vacuum, and its inside and outside are new composite density non-porous plates. The surface has corrosion resistance. For example, if there are stains or yellowing marks on the board surface, it can be removed with a detergent or a cleaning towel. In daily cleaning, simply wash with clean water.

What are the common diseases of stone?

1. Bai Hua. A white, gray, gray, black and black mist-like substance that affects the beauty of the stone formed on the surface of the stone. Baihua's stone disease often exists in serpentine green stones. Some Baihua can be easily wiped off with cloth, while some Baihua is very stubborn and must be polished again.

2, yin and yang face. A watermark (watermark) produced by the stone after being invaded by water and damp for a long time.

3. The surface of the stone turns yellow or produces yellow spots. This kind of stone disease is common in white stone (such as American white hemp, big flower white, snow white), and it has always been a big problem in stone surface treatment.

4. The stone is contaminated by oil or other dirt (such as coffee juice, soy sauce, fruit juice, tea, chewing gum).

5. The color of cement or adhesive penetrates from the back of the stone board to the front of the board to change the original color of the stone.

6, mildew occurs.

7. Moss is formed on the surface of the stone. The stone that is installed in the damp place will produce moss on the surface of the stone after several years.

8. Corroded by acid rain in the atmosphere, it changes the original natural beauty of the stone.

Cabinet countertops are generally made of stone or stainless steel, and the use of stone as cabinet countertops has always firmly occupied the dominant position, so we have Some of their related knowledge can also play a role in the daily maintenance of them.
