Stone industry professionals teach you how to judge true and false quartz stone countertops

Core Summary:

The following are the four methods to judge the true and false of the quartz stone countertops in the cabinet. It is really simple. Hurry up and store it! Method 1 for judging the surface of the stone laundry pool: It is very important to judge the quality of the quartz stone is the finish because the finish represents the stain resistance. The easiest way is to use a marker to draw on the quartz stone to see if it can be wiped off. If it can be wiped off, it means strong stain resistance.

Here are four ways to judge the authenticity of the countertop quartz stone countertop. It’s really simple. Hurry up and store it!

  • Judgment method one: look.The very important point to judge the quality of quartz stone is the finish, because the finish represents the stain resistance. The easiest way is to use a marker to draw on the quartz stone to see if it can be wiped off. If it can be wiped off, it means strong stain resistance.

    In addition, the quartz stones produced by regular manufacturers have code printing on the back, pay attention to see the signs

  • Judgment method two: scratches.

    The hardness is also the identification of wear resistance. The simple method is to use a steel knife to scratch, and the key does not play the role of identification. Quartz stone is made of 94% quartz and 6% resin, and the hardness reaches 7 degrees, while the granite is made of marble powder and resin, so the hardness is generally 4-6 degrees, which is simply the ratio of quartz stone The granite is hard and more scratch-resistant and wear-resistant.

    The steel knife scratched, leaving a white mark with fake quartz stone, because the plate is not as hard as steel, and the surface is cut by the steel knife to expose the white inside. The pure quartz stone is scratched by the steel knife, leaving only a black mark. The steel knife does not move the quartz stone. Instead, it leaves a trace of steel. It is black and white, and it is true and false.

  • Judgment method three: burn.

    Due to the characteristics of its own material, quartz stone determines its high temperature resistance. The temperature below 300 degrees Celsius will not have any effect on it, that is, it will not deform or break; the granite contains a large amount of resin, so It is particularly prone to deformation and charring at high temperatures.

    Press the lighted cigarette butts on the countertop, or burn it directly with a lighter. The real ones without traces are the fakes.

  • Judgment method four: acid.

    High-quality quartz stone countertops are usually added with 100% high-quality aluminum powder. A small spoonful of white vinegar can make all the inferior artificial stones and quartz stones show their original shape. But other types of vinegar are ineffective, such as vinegar is ineffective.

    Pour a tablespoon of white vinegar on the countertop of artificial stone and quartz stone. After 30 seconds, if there are many tiny bubbles, it means fake quartz stone. Because calcium carbonate in pseudo-quartz stone will react with white vinegar and produce bubbles. Such countertops are low in price, prone to aging, cracking, color absorption, and short service life.
