The hazard of quartz stone: it is not abrasion-resistant and easy to generate powder to cause respiratory diseases
Although the hardness of quartz stone is strong, if some unscrupulous merchants mix excessive bubbles in the quartz stone plate, it will affect the hardness of the quartz stone and make it lose its inherent wear resistance, and the final product will be produced. It is easy to break, and it is easy to drop the powder. If it is used for a long time, it is likely to cause respiratory diseases due to inhalation of too much powder.
The second hazard of quartz stone: organic solvents and heavy metals harm the digestive system
Some unscrupulous merchants use very poor quality inorganic pigments containing heavy metals such as lead or cadmium in the production of quartz stone, directly adding organic solvents. If you always use this inferior product, the heavy metals and other harmful substances contained in it will directly enter the digestive system with food as a carrier, thus endangering our human health.
Three hazards of quartz stone: long-term volatilization of residual formaldehyde may cause cancer
Due to the high cost of quartz stone production, in order to reduce costs, some unscrupulous merchants add formaldehyde-containing glue in the production process to act as a solvent. After this material is processed into countertops, there will still be excess residue. If the formaldehyde is kept indoors, it will always volatilize a strong smell of formaldehyde. If it is used for a long time, it is likely to cause cancer.
Quartz stone itself is not harmful to us, but some unscrupulous manufacturers make inferior products in order to earn more profits. Although the prices of these products are very low, the harm to our human body is not small. Therefore, friends must be cautious when choosing quartz stone slabs and never buy inferior products.
