Cabinet countertops are an important factor in determining the decorative effect and price of the overall cabinet. It is also the most frequently used in the kitchen, so the quality of the countertop directly affects the service life of the cabinet. It is well known that cabinet countertop materials have been occupied by artificial stone products, not only because of the uniform thickness of the plate, good gloss, environmental protection, etc., but also can be bent at will, seamlessly bonded, and truly achieve a natural state. Due to the lack of hardness, the field of countertops is being replaced by quartz stone. However, the hardness of quartz stone is too high. For seamless splicing, it has become a bottleneck that the industry and quartz stone manufacturers cannot breakthrough.
The splicing gap on the countertop obviously not only affects the overall aesthetics but also easily breeds bacteria. Because the hardness of quartz stone plate is second only to that of natural granite, it can reach Mohs hardness level 7. In addition, the particles inside will collapse, so the edges are rough when the material is cut, and gaps will occur during natural splicing. It is more difficult to achieve seamless splicing. At present, the so-called seamless splicing will not be the same as the original plate, but a glue line can still be seen. This has nothing to do with the price of quartz stone, and it cannot be done with high prices.
Many practitioners and manufacturers are trying their best to solve how quartz stone splicing reduces the obviousness of the gap. Quartz stone splicing should reduce the obviousness of the gap. First, the splicing seam should be polished. The smaller the gap between the two splicing pieces, the better. After the polishing is completed, use the manufacturer’s original glue of the same color to paste (the proportion of glue should pay attention to temperature changes), paste Match the color with the countertop board to avoid the color difference, and use paper tape to paste on the edges of the two opposite joints. So as to avoid unnecessary troubles when the glue contacts the plane to clean. After finishing the preparation work, apply glue twice evenly, and fix it with a fixer for about 15 minutes or more. After slicing, use a blade to remove excess glue, and use a water polishing pad to polish from 400 mesh to more than 3000 mesh.
