Quartz stone countertop is a new-tech artificial stone synthesized from fine stone. Its manufacturing process is produced through a set of advanced and patented BRETONESTONESYSTEM systems. The product is wrapped with more than 90% natural quartz stone or granite, then mixed with an ultra-high performance resin and special pigments to combine.
Its main material is quartz, which has no radiation and high hardness, which makes the quartz stone countertops not scratching (Mohs hardness 7), not stained (vacuum manufacturing. Dense and non-porous), and not damaged (quartz material. Can be used. Temperature resistance 1300℃), durable (30 polishing processes without maintenance), non-toxic and non-radiation (NSF certification, no heavy metals, can be in direct contact with food). Quartz stone countertops have various colors. Gobi series, crystal series, granite series, and star series are more distinctive and can be widely used in public buildings (hotels, restaurants, banks, hospitals, exhibitions, laboratories, etc.) and home decoration (kitchen countertops, Washstands, kitchen and bathroom walls, dining tables, coffee tables, window sills, door covers, etc.) are a kind of non-radioactive pollution, reusable environmental protection, green new building interior decoration materials.
Artificial marble is made of unsaturated polyester resin as a binder, which is made of marble powder stone sand or granite fragments bonded with a binder. Ordinary granite is also called artificial marble. There are two production methods: tablet production and block production, both have their advantages and disadvantages. The former is superior in diagonal and flatness, while the latter is better in uniform color and can also be used for special-shaped processing, such as cylindrical processing. On the market, there are many production methods of block-type granite.
Product characteristics: ① Most of the granites are made of organic pigments of different colors. Organic pigments are not resistant to sunlight, moisture, acid, and alkali, etc., and are easy to fade or even change color. ② Most of the stone has a high glue content. On the one hand, the texture of the stone is not strong and the decoration effect is not up to the grade. On the other hand, the glue expands and shrinks greatly, the product is easy to deform and warp, and the service life is short. Moreover, the glue generally contains Volatile toxic gas, harmful to the human body. ③The stone has many pores due to the process, and the product has poor impact resistance, easy to seepage and color, poor resistance to disease, its gloss is fake, it is easy to be worn, and it is not durable. ④The granite made of marble powder is not acid-resistant, because its main component is CaCO3, which easily reacts with an acid to decompose; the hardness of marble powder and binder is very low, so the hardness of granite is also very low, generally less than Mohs hardness of 3, so it is not abrasion-resistant, not resistant to scratching, and easy to scratch. ⑤ The ** generation granite contains more or less radioactivity due to the composition of marble and granite.
Artificial granite is mainly used for interior walls and floors. Its physical properties are lower than natural stone and quartz stone during use. When used on the ground, it is prone to bulges, discoloration, scratches, etc. It is extremely difficult to clean after long-term use. There is also a big gap between the surface gloss and natural stone.
