At present, the most common application of quartz stone is the countertop of the cabinet. The most headache for everyone should be the use of the countertop for about a year, and the stitching seam changes color.
Among the home decoration stones, quartz stone is classified as green and environmentally friendly decorative stone by the country for its characteristics of wear resistance, scratch resistance, high-temperature resistance, penetration resistance, non-toxic, and non-radiation, and zero formaldehyde. Quartz stone has the advantages of natural granite, the beauty of marble, and the color of artificial stone. Using organic resin as a binder makes the quartz stone look warm and round, removing the cold and stiff feeling of natural stone, and the color is more colorful. The application field is more extensive. Quartz stone uses extremely high-hardness quartz sand as a filler so that the hardness of the plate can reach up to 7 Mohs hardness, which also brings certain difficulties to the later processing.
At present, the most common application of quartz stone is the cabinet countertop. The most headache for everyone is that it will be used for about one year on the countertop. The stitching seam changes color, which directly affects the overall beauty of the cabinet. Quartz stone splicing generally uses glue or marble glue dispensed by quartz stone manufacturers. The possible reason for discoloration is the preparation of glue or the bleeding of the stitching seam. How to fix it after discoloration, let’s take a look!
Whatever the cause of discoloration, first of all, we should insert the discolored gaps and dispose of the original glue. The second is to adjust the glue, first use the same color resin glue of the manufacturer to add quartz powder to stir, add the curing agent according to the temperature and humidity of the site (too much curing agent will appear yellow or glue line). If the embedded gap is too large, you can remove the pad from the bottom of the plate and polish it, then insert it into the gap, and then fill the prepared glue into it. Because the glue will shrink after curing, the solid glue should be higher than the board surface. The last step is polishing. After the glue is completely cured, a special polishing machine for natural granite can be used to grind from 50 to 3000 mesh water-grinding discs from coarse to fine, which will make the plate bright and smooth. Pay attention to the protection of the gap during use, avoid contact with dark liquids such as soy sauce, vinegar, and other materials, clean it in time after use, and increase the frequency of gap waxing.
