How about the quartz countertops? Is the quartz countertops good?
Like all materials, if we want to understand how quartz stone countertops are and whether they are good or not, we must first start by analyzing its advantages and disadvantages.
The advantages of quartz stone cabinet countertops
The quartz stone content in quartz stone cabinet countertops is as high as 90-95%, quartz Crystal is a natural mineral whose hardness is second only to diamond in nature. Its surface hardness can be as high as 7.5 on the Mohs scale, which makes the countertop more practical and beautiful, and has a very strong ability to resist scratches. Quartz stone is manufactured under vacuum conditions. Dense and non-porous composite material, its quartz surface has excellent corrosion resistance to kitchen acid and alkali, and the surface is extremely smooth, it is very convenient to clean, it can be cleaned with a wipe; the quartz stone cabinet countertop is processed by multiple polishing processes , Long-term use, forever, and the melting point of natural quartz stone is as high as 1300 degrees or more, so quartz stone cabinet countertops have strong flame retardancy. The high-quality quartz stone uses selected natural quartz crystal minerals with a SiO2 content of more than 99.9%, and is purified during the manufacturing process. The raw materials do not contain any heavy metal impurities that may cause radiation, 94% quartz crystals and others The resin additives make the quartz stone without the risk of radiation pollution.
Disadvantages of quartz stone cabinet countertops
The main disadvantage of quartz stone is its higher price. Price is also an important element that people have to consider when buying goods, so what is the price of quartz stone? As mentioned above, the price of quartz stone is higher than other cabinet countertop materials, but the quality of quartz stone on the market varies from good to bad. Generally speaking, the price ranges from 500-3000 yuan. If you are sure to use quartz stone countertops, you must pay attention to quality when purchasing. It is not unreasonable that you get what you pay for.
Precautions for purchasing quartz stone countertops
Plate antifouling performance: inferior quartz stone has poor antifouling performance, Soy sauce, vinegar, etc. staying on the quartz stone countertop within a day may penetrate into the countertop and make it difficult to clean. When buying a countertop, a water-based pen will leave scratches on the quartz stone. The high-quality quartz stone can be restored to its new brightness with a single wipe with a rag, leaving no trace at all.
Pay attention to the crack resistance of the plate: because the quartz sand content of the quartz stone plate is more than 93%, the hardness is high, and the brittleness is high, and the toughness is low. When the material cannot withstand the internal stress caused by thermal expansion and contraction Cracks will appear. Therefore, it is necessary to choose quartz stone with high crack resistance.
The texture, color, and the overall kitchen are very important: from the perspective of the texture of the plate, the texture of quartz stone is close to natural stone, and the poor quality quartz stone has a strong plastic appearance. The high-quality quartz stone is saturated and round in color, bright in color, and uniform in particles, especially in multi-color plates, with uniform, smooth and clear colors. When choosing a design, consider the overall style matching of the countertop and the kitchen door panel color, floor pattern and other spaces.
Finally, when you look at the cabinet sample countertops, you should pay attention to the good processing technology. The connection points are handled perfectly, and there is almost no connection. Sew. Unqualified processing will cause the countertop to crack, and the rough processing technology will also affect the aesthetics of the countertop.
