KKR's Zero Silica Solid Surface Passed Authoritative SGS Testing


The presence of silica in quartz stone used for worktops and countertops can pose significant health risks if proper precautions are not taken. Silica dust, generated during the fabrication and installation processes, can lead to serious respiratory issues. Prolonged exposure to silica dust can result in a condition known as silicosis, which causes lung tissue damage and breathing difficulties. Inhaling silica particles can also lead to respiratory irritations, infections, and even lung cancer. Workers involved in the handling of quartz stone materials are particularly vulnerable to these dangers. It is crucial to implement safety measures such as using protective equipment, controlling dust through wet cutting or ventilation, and providing proper training to mitigate the harm caused by silica in quartz stone. Some engineered stone often contains more than 95% silica, significantly increasing the risk for those involved in its processing. As a result, WorkSafe Australia has recommended a complete import and installation ban

Dr Ashleigh Hood, a geoscientist at the University of Melbourne, says silica – a compound of silicon and oxygen – is everywhere. “Nearly 30% of the Earth’s crust is silicon. It’s the second-most common element, coming right after oxygen.” In its most common form, silica is quartz, which means you’ll find varying levels of silica in sand at the beach and in concrete. Many natural stones such as sandstone and granite have high levels of silica, and it is in bricks, pottery glazes and even some plastics.

Australia will implement new laws banning products containing silicon in July 2024. Quartz stone, which is frequently used for countertops and worktops, includes silicon, which is harmful to health. Because silicon in quartz stone dust cannot be processed by the body, workers who inhale it run the risk of developing serious respiratory conditions like silicosis.

In response, Kingkonree (KKR) has been concentrating on creating solid surfaces devoid of silica since 2023 in order to satisfy the premium market's high requirements and demands. Authoritative SGS testing has confirmed that KKR's Solid Surface is silica-free.

The solid surface from KKR that is silica-free also safeguards the health of stone industry workers. KKR is a strong proponent of environmental conservation and invites visitors to our Chinese factory. Our group is prepared to offer further details and test results, helping in the search for sustainable, compliant, and healthier materials.

Address of the factory: Tangjiao Village, Zhenlong Town, Huiyang Area, Huizhou; No.003 Qingli Street. We are always happy to have you visit!
