Acrylic countertops have higher hardness, better toughness, can be bent, and have excellent weather resistance and mechanical properties, will not produce natural cracks in the case of large temperature differences, and acrylic has high transparency and transparency. The light rate reaches 92%, and it has the reputation of 'plastic crystal'.

How about the advantages and disadvantages of acrylic countertops

1. Advantages: The acrylic countertops currently used in the cabinet industry are made of seamless splicing, which is easy to repair even if there is a problem. At the same time, the acrylic countertop It is also easy to maintain and easy to clean.

The acrylic content of artificial stone is generally between 40% and 45%, which is the most stable. This is called pure acrylic by the industry, and its comprehensive performance is the most superior; in addition, special attention should be paid to the resin content. In order to reduce production costs, countertop manufacturers The acrylic content is often reduced by increasing the resin content. In this case, the countertop is very resistant to wear, and it is easy to cause the aging and yellowing of the countertop.

2. The thickness of the tabletop

The thickness of the acrylic tabletop is directly related to the strength, and the thickness also involves the issue of cost. If a 10mm thick board is used, it will only be 8mm thick after being processed and polished, which will cause some artificial stones to crack and deform after being impacted. When purchasing, you must understand the thickness of the artificial stone. The national standard for the thickness of the blank plate requires 12.7mm, and the finished product should be 12mm thick, while the low-priced countertops are usually only 8-10mm thick.
