Quartz stone is a new-tech artificial stone synthesized from fine stone. Its manufacturing process is produced through a set of the most advanced and patented BRETONESTONESYSTEM system. 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. Quartz stone is non-radiation and high in hardness, which makes the quartz stone countertops scratch-free (Mohs hardness 7), stain-free (vacuum manufacturing. Dense and non-porous), and not damaged (quartz material. Can be burnt) 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 flashing 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. At present, there are many production methods of block-type granite on the market.
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 granite 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 using marble powder as raw material is not acid resistant, because its main component is CaCO3, CaCO3 reacts easily with acid and decomposes; the hardness of marble powder and binder are very low, so the hardness of the 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 first generation of granite contains more or less radioactivity due to the composition of marble and granite.
Artificial marble 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 bulge, discoloration, scratches, etc. It is extremely difficult to clean after long-term use. There is also a big gap between natural stone and natural stone in terms of surface gloss.
