The advantages and disadvantages of artificial stone countertops and quartz stone countertops

by:KingKonree     2021-05-02

  Artificial stone is researched according to the problems in the actual use of natural stone. It has relative advantages in terms of moisture resistance, acid resistance, high temperature resistance, and patchwork. Of course, man-made things naturally have man-made shortcomings. In contrast, man-made stones are obviously not natural and have relatively fake textures. Therefore, they are mostly used in cabinets and other places with high practical requirements, as well as in some harsh environments, such as Kitchen, bathroom, etc. The quality of the processing technology of artificial stone countertops will also directly affect the service life of the cabinet, so when you are purchasing artificial stone countertops, you should consult the sales staff to understand the processing standards of artificial stone countertops so that you can finish the installation. There is evidence to check during acceptance:

The advantages and disadvantages of    artificial stone countertops

Artificial stone is researched according to the problems in the actual use of natural stone. It has relative advantages in terms of moisture resistance, acid resistance, high temperature resistance, and patchwork. Of course, man-made things naturally have man-made shortcomings. In contrast, man-made stones are obviously not natural and have relatively fake textures. Therefore, they are mostly used in cabinets and other places with high practical requirements, as well as in some harsh environments, such as Kitchen, bathroom, etc. The quality of the processing technology of artificial stone countertops will also directly affect the service life of the cabinet, so when you are purchasing artificial stone countertops, you should consult the sales staff to understand the processing standards of artificial stone countertops so that you can finish the installation. There is evidence to check during acceptance:

  1. Geometric size: When you need to check and accept after installation, you should check the geometric size of the table against the drawing, and the size error should not exceed 3mm;

  2 , Whether there are seams: Due to the unique properties of artificial stone, there should be no obvious seams after processing and splicing, which directly affects the aesthetics and use;

   3. The gap between the walls: the artificial stone follows Climate change will cause thermal expansion and contraction. Therefore, there is a gap of 3-5mm on the wall during processing, which is a normal range;

  4, Surface brightness: The surface brightness directly affects the beauty of the countertop and the surface decontamination ability; the surface of the artificial stone countertop should be polished after polishing, and its surface gloss should be good and reflective;

  5. Is the opening smooth: the opening and corners of the artificial stone countertop should be smoothly transitioned, and there is no dead angle to disperse the internal stress, otherwise, the internal stress will be concentrated and easy to crack;

  6. Whether the countertop is leveled : The flatness of the countertop directly affects the degree of fracture of the countertop. The countertop should be leveled as a whole, not just by cushioning several corners. Such countertops are the most prone to breakage.

   What everyone needs to understand is: the processing quality of the countertop is directly related to the overall appearance, geometric size, decontamination ability, cracking degree and other indicators of the countertop, so you should pay special attention to the manufacturer's processing quality when purchasing , General exhibition halls have countertop craft models. If you don’t understand, you must consult the exhibitors. The details should not be ignored. The most important point of artificial stone is that it is afraid of being hot, remember!

  The advantages and disadvantages of quartz stone countertops

  Quartz stone countertops are made of broken glass and quartz sand . The advantages of quartz stone are that it is wear-resistant and not afraid of scratches, and has good heat resistance and can be used for large-area paving and wall coverings.

  Advantages

  1, not scratching

   The quartz content of quartz stone is as high as 94%. Quartz crystal is a natural mineral with hardness second only to diamond in nature. Its surface hardness can be as high as 7.5 on the Mohs scale, which is much greater than sharp tools such as knives and shovel used in the kitchen, and will not be scratched by it.

  2, no pollution

   Quartz stone is a dense and non-porous composite material manufactured under vacuum conditions. Its quartz surface is excellent for kitchen acid and alkali. Anti-corrosion ability, the liquid substances used in daily use will not penetrate the inside. The liquid placed on the surface for a long time only needs to be wiped with a rag with clean water or a cleaning agent such as clean and bright. .

  3, not worn out

   The shiny and bright surface of quartz stone has undergone more than 30 complex polishing processes, which will not be scratched by a knife or penetrated by liquid substances. , Will not produce yellowing and discoloration and other problems, daily cleaning only needs to be rinsed with water, simple and easy. Even after a long period of use, its surface is as bright as a newly installed countertop, without maintenance and maintenance.

  4, non-burning

  Natural quartz crystal is a typical refractory material, its melting point is as high as 1300 degrees, and the quartz stone made of 94% natural quartz is completely flame-retardant and will not It burns due to exposure to high temperatures, and it also has high temperature resistance that is unmatched by artificial stone and other countertops.

  5. Non-toxic and non-radiation

   The surface of the quartz stone is smooth, flat and no scratches are retained. The dense and non-porous material structure makes bacteria have no place to hide and can be in direct contact with food , Safe and non-toxic!

   The high-quality quartz stone is made of selected natural quartz crystal minerals, and its SiO2 content exceeds 99.9%. It is cleaned and purified during the manufacturing process. The raw materials do not contain any possible causes. Radiation heavy metal impurities, 94% quartz crystals and other resin additives make the quartz stone free from the danger of radiation pollution.

   Disadvantages: Quartz stone countertops are too hard, difficult to process, and too simple in shape.
