Quartz stone countertops refer to cabinet countertops made of quartz stone, mostly made of broken glass and quartz sand. The advantages of quartz stone countertops are wear resistance and scratch resistance, good heat resistance, large area paving and wall, seamless splicing, and durability.
The specific production process: firstly crush the high-quality natural quartz sand, and then purify it (the process removes metal impurities and avoids the radioactivity of the product), and then mix the raw materials and mix the quartz crystals (90%-94%) under vacuum conditions. %), resin (6%), and trace pigments are made into large-size plates through heterogeneous polymerization technology, and then the surface is polished and polished in more than 30 processes.
Up to 93% of the quartz crystal is the main structure so that the product retains the background of the quartz crystal, and its texture is harder and tighter. It has the characteristics of wear resistance, pressure resistance, high-temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and penetration resistance that other decorative materials can’t match. The combination of rich colors gives it the texture of natural stone and beautiful surface gloss.
Because this product is a brand-new decorative surface material made from quartz crystal ore as raw material, it is a product of a combination of natural beauty and high technology. This kind of quartz crystal ore itself has natural characteristics such as crystal clear, clear, beautiful color, luxurious, high hardness, no deformation, no discoloration, strong toughness, no radioactivity, strong acid-resistance, and other natural characteristics, so it is called “Jade Mine”. Quartz stone surface material made of this raw material combines many advantages of natural stone and artificial stone. It has been widely adopted and used by customers in most countries in the world, including Europe, America, Australia, the Middle East, and other countries. And it has been sold in large quantities to countries such as Italy, the United States, Spain, Turkey, Portugal, and other countries of origin of quartz stone.
1) Not easy to scratch:
The quartz stone plate is formed by vacuum vibration compression and extrusion, and the quartz has reached the hardness of Mohs 6~7.5. (Australian mineralogist Frederich Mohs (Frederich Mohs) created a hardness scale, which is an internationally recognized hardness test method, 10 is the highest hardness, diamond is 10).
2) Extremely high-temperature resistance, no burns:
Reason: Quartz is resistant to high temperatures, but resin is not resistant to high temperatures.
3) Real stone feel:
Reason: Because quartz stone contains 93% quartz crystals, it feels very similar to stone, and quartz stone combines the advantages of natural stone and artificial acrylic. Therefore, from the perspective of color, it is richer than real stone, and there is almost no color difference.
4) Strong anti-pollution, not easy to penetrate stains;
Reason: After dozens of complicated surface treatment methods, the surface structure is extremely tight. The product is fine and non-porous, and the water absorption rate is almost zero; oil, sauce, tea, juice, coffee, acid, alkali, etc. used in general kitchens It is impossible for substances to penetrate, so it is extremely resistant to dirt.
Reason: Because the surface layer and the inside of the material are equally dense and uniform, there are no pores and gaps, and a certain amount of antibiotics are built-in, so the breeding of bacteria is prevented, safe, and clean, and it can be in direct contact with food and skin, which is beneficial to food hygiene and human health.
6) The surface material is non-radiative, which is a green product;
Reason: Because quartz stone is a natural stone crystal mineral, it is one of the most abundant inorganic materials in the world. Its si02 (silicon dioxide) content is more than 99.9%, and it will only harm the human body during the process of heavy metals and other radioactive elements Strictly control within the allowable range (it contains a relatively small amount of radioactive elements such as heavy metals), it’s mining, use, and processing will not cause adverse effects on the human body and the environment, so there will be no contact with food or human body Negative effects.
7) The stone has the same color, does not fade, and does not change color;
Reason: Quartz stone is mainly made of mineral pigments, so it is consistent with the color of the stone. It is difficult to observe the color change of the naked eye without long-term local contrast irradiation under strong sunlight. In addition, the entire quartz stone is produced during the production process. It is full-process automatic control equipment, which makes the uniformity rate of product color standards extremely high. During long-term daily use indoors, the color and gloss will not fade due to oxidation, aging, corrosion, and contact with hot objects.
8) High material toughness;
Reason: The product contains high-strength glue and resin components and has strong elasticity, so it will not be brittle.
9) Not easy to break;
Reason: The thickness of the product reaches 20mm. However, most domestic plates still use 15mm thickness and even cut corners, the actual thickness is only 13mm, which is easy to break under the influence of external forces. Xinhua Xinlian Quartz Stone has been synchronized with world-renowned brands and checked raw materials, processing, and product quality to achieve a cracking coefficient of 0.3%.
10) Easy to maintain, once and for all, high-cost performance:
Reason: This product has excellent physical and chemical properties. It can be cleaned with any cleaning agent. It can be cleaned even with any neutral agent of PH value. It is simple and easy to use. After purchase, there is no need to worry about the troubles and maintenance caused by maintenance. Inconvenience, one-time investment, and permanent use, once-and-for-all magic. High added value, although the price is higher on the surface, its material value, processing value, service value, environmental protection and sanitation, ease of use, and aesthetics all have extremely high added value.
