Countertops are the plates used to make countertops. They must be measured and considered in the purchase and decoration of countertops. Let's get to know some of the more common countertops in the market.

Artificial stone countertop

The main component of artificial stone is acrylic-resin, which is used as the material for spectacle lenses. Generally, the acrylic content of the countertop is about 40%. It is made of 40% acrylic, 55% lime powder and 5% masterbatch (the masterbatch determines the color of the countertop). The best artificial stone countertops are very environmentally friendly and can be in direct contact with food. The color saturation, penetration resistance and toughness of a good artificial stone countertop are very good. The biggest feature of artificial stone is that the spliced u200bu200bseams can be invisible to the naked eye. But artificial stone also has shortcomings. The hardness is relatively poor and it is easy to scratch; the heat resistance is not high enough, and the hot pot for cooking cannot be put directly on it.

Quartz countertops

Quartz countertops are made of 95% silica and 5% masterbatch. Compared with artificial stone, the biggest disadvantage of quartz stone is that the splicing of two materials has seams. However, the high temperature resistance of quartz stone is better, and the hot pot will not be damaged if it is placed directly on it. Quartz stone countertops are also more environmentally friendly and can reach direct food contact; the hardness is also better, reaching 7.1 Mohs. Mohs is a unit of hardness, and the hardness of diamonds is 10 Mohs.

Marble countertops

Marble cabinet countertops have strong abrasion resistance, high temperature resistance, and maintenance-free characteristics. There will be scratches, and it will not be blocked by constant temperature conditions, and it can maintain its original physical properties at room temperature; the physical properties of marble are stable, the structure is dense, the grains fall off by impact, the surface is free of burrs, and its plane accuracy is not affected. Stable, can guarantee long-term non-deformation, small linear expansion coefficient, high mechanical accuracy, anti-rust, anti-magnetic, and insulation. It is not magnetized, can move smoothly during measurement, has no sense of stagnation, is not affected by moisture, and the plane is weighed well.

The fireproof countertop

is the result of science and technology, with perfect characteristics. Simeite Decoration Design Studio introduced that the real name of the fireproof board is called thermosetting resin impregnated paper high-pressure laminated board, which can withstand extremely high temperatures and is also a good insulator. Because the material of the fireproof board is very delicate and its density is very high, it is not only fireproof but also waterproof, small in size and small in thickness. It is widely used in interior decoration, furniture, kitchen cabinets, laboratory countertops, exterior walls and other fields.

Stainless steel countertop

The stainless steel countertop has a good integrity, and there will be no cracks in any place, because the stainless steel is very strong. Moreover, the stainless steel countertops are more environmentally friendly and will not generate radiation for easy cleaning. The water basins are also connected as a whole, without slits, and will not breed bacteria. Of course, it will never fade, it is also a product with super waterproof performance and it is not afraid of impact, even if the sky falls, it may not collapse.

Well, what I have introduced above are the five common and mainstream countertops on the market. Generally speaking, they are all different There are advantages and disadvantages of each, so when we buy, we can also make reference selection based on the kitchen style, etc.
