What are the dimensions of cabinet countertops? There has been a lot of controversy on this issue. Some people think that since the sink and stove are installed on the countertop of the cabinet, they should be included when defining the size. Most people agree with the cabinet. The table size value includes the length, width and thickness of the table and the height of the water retaining edge.
Since these two controversies have appeared, there must be supporters for each of them. In fact, the angle of understanding is different in the final analysis. The sink and stove are installed in the openings on the countertop of the cabinet. It is not wrong to include its size in the cabinet countertop size, so as far as I am concerned, I support this statement.
What are the materials for cabinet countertops?
Artificial stone countertops
Artificial stone is currently the most commonly used countertop material in the market. It is made by mixing unsaturated polyester resin with fillers and pigments, adding a small amount of initiator, and going through certain processing procedures. Mainstream artificial stone countertops are mainly divided into three types: artificial quartz stone countertops, pure acrylic countertops and composite acrylic countertops. The main component of quartz stone countertops is silica, which has higher hardness and is more wear-resistant. The main factor that determines the wear resistance and toughness coefficient of pure acrylic countertops and composite acrylic countertops is the acrylic content. The acrylic content is the most stable between 40% and 45%.
Natural stone countertops
Generally used marble and granite. Granite is a volcanic rock, the pattern is mainly pitted, dense, hard, bright, and grained; marble is stratified rock, grained, beautiful, but relatively soft and weathered, and white flowers and black flowers are more commonly used. Two kinds. In comparison, the hardness of granite is higher than that of marble, so it is very suitable for kitchen countertops. Speaking of natural stone, we must mention its radioactivity. In fact, radiation is widespread in our living environment. The radioactivity of natural stone is not necessarily higher than that of other materials. Some ceramic sanitary products are even more radioactive. Therefore, there is no need to talk about its discoloration. When buying, the best way is to choose the tested Class A stone.

Compared with natural stone, fireproof board is more flexible and will not crack due to heavy blows. Its maintenance and maintenance are basically the same as other materials, and it is also very simple. Structurally speaking, the fireproof board countertop and the rear water baffle are formed together at one time, which is called 'joint type'; the second is that the countertop does not have a water baffle plate, and is additionally equipped with aluminum alloy water retaining strips, which is called a 'combined type'. type'.
