Hello, many people like to use quartz stone and artificial stone for kitchen countertops, so today I will tell you how to distinguish between quartz stone and artificial stone.
The difference between artificial stone and quartz stone in terms of composition:
Artificial stone includes resin artificial stone, pure acrylic artificial stone, and artificial granite. The fillers are mostly natural stone powder or aluminum hydroxide powder. The common thing is to use resin for bonding. Because of resin, artificial stone is generally not resistant to high temperature and hardness. Poor, but good-quality artificial stone such as pure acrylic artificial stone has good plasticity and can be used for any shape, and the artificial stone is environmentally friendly and seamless, which is not available in quartz stone.
The main components of quartz stone are quartz sand and very little resin. It has high hardness and high-temperature resistance without oil leakage. The environmentally friendly and light-colored high-quality quartz stone can also be seamlessly spliced. Because the quartz stone is too hard, it cannot be used for various arcs like artificial stone. Shaped styling.
The distinction between artificial stone and quartz stone:
Artificial stone is generally 11-12mm thick, white quartz stone is mostly 20mm thick. Artificial stone is much lighter than quartz stone.
Artificial stone is not scratch resistant, and quartz stone is not scratched.
Advantages of artificial stone:
Wear resistance, acid resistance, high-temperature resistance, impact resistance, compression resistance, flexural resistance, penetration resistance, and other functions are also very strong.
It can be seamlessly bonded at any length. The adhesive of the same material will bond the two pieces together and polish them together, and there will be no traces at the joints. The handling of deformation, bonding, turning and other parts are unique;
The patterns are rich, integrally shaped, and can be polished and refurbished repeatedly.
Strong stain resistance, because there are no pores on the surface, oil and water stains are not easy to penetrate into it. General stains can be wiped off with a damp cloth or detergent.
Advantages of Quartz Stone:
On the basis of ensuring high hardness, high-temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, impact resistance, and easy cleaning, there are no radioactive elements harmful to the human body.
The super-hard environment-friendly composite quartz plate produced by the most advanced technology in the world contains up to 93% natural quartz.
The surface is as hard as granite, the color is as rich as marble, the structure is as antiseptic and stain-resistant as glass, and the finished shape is as perfect as artificial stone.
