What material is good for cabinet countertops
As for the relatively large and mainstream cabinet countertop materials in the market: stainless steel cabinet countertops are green and environmentally friendly, natural stone cabinet countertops are beautiful and generous, and refractory board cabinet countertops are extremely resistant. They each have their own characteristics. So how should we choose them?
How about stainless steel cabinet countertops
The appearance of stainless steel cabinet countertops stainless steel countertops is very avant-garde, and shiny, looks very refreshing, Easy to take care of, stains can be easily removed completely. Even if it is contaminated with oil, it is easy to clean up, and it is as shiny as new after many days.
Stainless steel cabinet countertops are green and environmentally friendly. After rigorous processing and filming, the stainless steel panel is embossed, which is not only scratch-proof, it does not contain any elemental components harmful to the body such as formaldehyde, no radioactive substances, and no radiation.
In summer, it feels cool to the touch, which can eliminate the heat and anxiety brought by the cooking process. And among all the materials that can be used for kitchen countertops, stainless steel countertops rank first in anti-bacterial regeneration ability, which is not easy to breed bacteria, making the kitchen environment more hygienic and healthy, and you can safely cook food on it.
How about natural stone cabinet countertops
Natural stone cabinet countertops, as the name suggests, use natural stone (such as granite, marble, etc.) ) Cabinet countertops made of. With natural texture and hard texture, it is much better than other cabinet countertops in aesthetics. The density of natural stone is relatively large, the high temperature resistance and scratch resistance are outstanding, and the wear resistance is good, and it is made into cabinet countertops. The cost is also relatively low.
The natural stone cabinet countertop is a contradictory combination. It has many advantages, but the disadvantages are also obvious. There will be pores in the texture of natural stone, and the gaps are easy to breed bacteria; the length will be limited, and there will be gaps after splicing; although the texture is hard, the elasticity is insufficient, and the cracks are difficult to repair; the natural stone cabinet countertops have very slight radiation.
How about refractory board cabinet countertops
Commonly known as fireproof board countertops, refractory board is used as a veneer for cabinet countertops. Occupies a certain market share. Because of its bright color, abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, and high temperature resistance, it gives people a brand-new feeling, and the cabinet countertops are consistent in height, supplemented by embedded gas stoves, adding a sense of beauty. Refractory boards also have fatal shortcomings of inadequacy. In the cut exposed sections, refractory veneers, PVC veneers, and metal strips are used to cover the section wooden substrates. The joints of the corner tabletops lack effective treatment. Means, usually silicone glue, plastic and special metal strip embedded to increase the appearance.
From the structure, it is divided into two types:
①The rear water retaining and the countertop are formed at one time. It is a 'conjoined type' and is widely used by domestic manufacturers.
②The countertop itself does not have a rear water retaining strip, but is additionally equipped with an aluminum alloy water retaining strip, called a 'combined type
When there is a corner or when the countertop is U-shaped or even stepped to avoid the pipe, the combined baffle can handle this situation flexibly. However, it is more difficult to form a water-retaining countertop at one time. However, none of these methods can stop the 'corrosion of water and moisture on the countertop'. Improper use can lead to serious consequences such as degumming, deformation, and expansion of the substrate.
In view of the straight-edge straight bending processing technology of refractory plate, the refractory plate countertop has certain limitations in the shape change, the adaptation of various room types, and the design requirements.
Cabinet countertops are more susceptible to damage than other parts of the cabinet during use, so cabinet countertop materials require higher requirements. Therefore, when we buy cabinet countertops, we must try our best to choose some more durable materials to ensure the long service life and high quality of the cabinet countertops.
