Is the artificial stone countertop good? Is the artificial stone countertop good?
The common artificial stone countertops on the market now mainly include acrylic countertops, artificial marble countertops and quartz countertops, but the artificial stone countertops we generally refer to mostly refer to acrylic countertops, so how good is it?
Principle of artificial stone countertops
Artificial stone countertop materials have strong acid resistance, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, High temperature, impact resistance, compression resistance, flexural resistance, penetration resistance and easy cleaning. It not only has the elegance of natural marble and the hardness of granite, but also has the delicate and warm feeling of wood, and it also has a ceramic-like luster. With plasticity, its deformation, bonding and turning parts are unique, and it can be made into any shape, which is in line with the development trend of cabinets that combine beauty and practicality. Therefore, it is known in the industry as 'the second-generation material that replaces other materials.' 'The excellent quality is increasingly being favored by people.
Advantages of artificial stone countertops
Because artificial stone countertops are artificial stone, they are more impact resistant than other stones , Flexural resistance, compression resistance, penetration resistance and other functions, and its abrasion resistance, acid resistance, high temperature resistance ability is also very strong.
The artificial stone countertop has a complete variety of colors and colors, which can be formed as a whole, and can be repeatedly polished and innovated.
Because there are no pores on the surface of artificial stone countertops, oil and water stains are not easy to penetrate into the interior. The dirt on the exterior can be cleaned with a damp cloth and detergent, so it has a strong anti-fouling force.
Disadvantages of artificial stone countertops
Because they are artificially made, they lack naturalness, and the textures are relatively fake compared to real stone.
Any artificial thing cannot be the same in quality, so you must choose a reputable and guaranteed brand when choosing.
How about acrylic cabinet countertops
Acrylic cabinet countertops are divided into composite acrylic cabinet countertops and pure acrylic cabinet countertops. And the advantages and disadvantages of these two different acrylic cabinet countertops are quite different.
Composite acrylic cabinet countertops--The main component of composite acrylic cabinet countertops is saturated resin with about 20% acrylic, aluminum hydroxide and 65% particles, and other materials account for about 2% (depending on different colors) set). The price and gloss, hardness, corrosion resistance and other aspects of the composite acrylic cabinet countertops are relatively moderate, so the cost performance is very high.
Pure acrylic cabinet countertops--The main components of pure acrylic cabinet countertops are grade A methyl acrylate and aluminum hydroxide. The gloss and corrosion resistance of pure acrylic cabinet countertops are higher than that of composite acrylic cabinet countertops, but the hardness is lower. Pure acrylic cabinet countertops are non-toxic and non-radiative, easy to clean, and are currently the most ideal cabinet countertop material.
In fact, artificial stone countertops are better. If you think the artificial stone countertops are too short or too narrow, it doesn’t matter. It can be seamless in length. Bonding, there is no trace of the bonding area.
