quartz countertops

quartz countertops 

Quartz stone countertops, is a new synthetic stone made of small and magnificent quartz stone, the manufacturing process is linked to a state-of-the-art and patented system. Over 90% of the ingredients in the product are blended with natural quartz or granite, a blend of ultra-high performance resins and specialty pigments. Made of quartz stone made of Taiwan in the guarantee of high hardness, high temperature, acid and alkali, impact resistance, easy to clean, based on the body without any harmful radioactive elements. Usually Quartz stone plate containing natural quartz up to 93%, also contains resin, mineral pigments and other additives components, selected materials by toning and vacuum pressure to form extremely compact complex, and then by the complex sub-cut and Surface polishing process to become quartz, the surface of this plate as hard as granite, rich colors like marble, anti-corrosion and anti-fouling structure like glass, after finishing the shape of man-made stone as perfect.

Its main material is quartz, quartz stone without radiation, high hardness, creating a quartz stone countertops scraping does not spend (Mohs hardness 7), stains (vacuum manufacturing. Temperature 1300 ℃), not old (30 polishing process without maintenance), non-toxic non-radiation (NSF certification, does not contain heavy metals, can be in direct contact with food). Quartz stone countertops, crystal series, mahogany series and flash star series are more unique and can be widely used in public buildings (hotels, restaurants, banks, hospitals, exhibitions, laboratories, etc.) and home decoration (kitchen countertops, Washbasin, kitchen wall, table, coffee table, windowsill, door cover, etc.) is a non-radioactive pollution, reusable green, green new building interior decoration materials.

Man-made stone countertops

Artificial granite is based on unsaturated polyester resin binder, made of marble powder or granite blocks bonded with a binder. Common post, also known as artificial marble. There are two kinds of production methods: tablet production and block production, both have their own advantages and disadvantages. The former is dominant in terms of diagonalness and flatness, while the latter is better in color uniformity and can also be shaped, such as cylindrical machining. Stone market to block material production methods more.

Features: ① Kong mostly used in different colors of organic pigments, organic pigments on the sun, water vapor, acid and alkali intolerance, easy to fade or even discoloration. ② Kong mostly high glue content, on the one hand lead to stone texture is not strong, the effect of renovation can not grade, on the other hand the glue thermal expansion and contraction rate, the product easily deformed Alice, short service life, in addition, the glue generally contains Volatile toxic gas, harmful to humans. ③ Gangshi due to process reasons, a lot of stomata, poor impact resistance of products, but also easy to seepage bleed stains, anti-disease ability to change, the gloss than the fake, easily worn, not lasting. ④ with marble powder as the raw material of the rock is not acid, because its main ingredient is CaCO3, CaCO3 and acid easily react and decompose; marble powder and binder hardness are very low, so the rock hardness is also very low, generally less than Mohs hardness of 3, so no wear, impatience carved plan, easy to scratch. ⑤ the first generation of stone because of the composition of marble and granite, there is more or less certain radioactivity.

Man-made stone is mainly used for interior walls and floors. The physical properties at the end of use are natural stone and quartz stone. When it is used on the ground, drumming, discoloration and scratching are easy to occur. After prolonged use, it is extremely difficult to clean the stone. In the surface gloss is also a big gap with the natural stone.
