Characteristics of quartz stone countertop

Quartz stone cabinet countertop hardness and wear are better than artificial stone cabinet countertops, heat resistance is better, but absolutely not so powerful, whether it is artificial stone or quartz stone, can not directly on the table on the hot pot, heat Expansion and contraction will lead to local changes in molecular structure, whether it is quartz stone or artificial stone, if you do not use the pot pad, directly on the cabinet countertop placed high temperature objects, the course of time, contact with other high-temperature surface with some other parts of the bright part of the difference.

Advantages: Quartz stone is a more than 90% of the quartz crystal with resin and other trace elements synthetic a new type of stone. Its main material is quartz, is following the artificial stone after another affordable and durable countertops.

Disadvantages: a single shape, not to do complex modeling, problems and bumps are not easy to repair. Because the hardness of quartz and high density, so not seamless stitching, not easy to do complex modeling. Relative to the price of artificial stone slightly higher.

Maintenance: just finished cooking pot, thermal expansion and contraction will lead to changes in the material within the molecule, a long time, will lead to local loss of luster or the formation of cracks. It is advisable to place a small piece of pad or shelf on the table to prevent the overheated pot from directly touching the table. Place the high temperature cooker before cooling for a few minutes. Usually pay attention to regular waxing, can effectively extend the table life and appearance.

Cleaning: Daily use of liquid substances will not penetrate its internal, long time on the surface of the liquid only with water or clean and bright and other cleaning agents can be wiped with a rag, if necessary, the blade can be used to scrap the surface of the retentive.
