1. Quartz stone countertops are really easy to clean and hygienic countertops:
In the production process of quartz stone countertops, based on the principle of “lotus effect” and modern bionics technology, special processing is performed on the surface of quartz stone countertops, which takes into account the two major effects of beauty and hygiene. The surface is compact and non-porous, forming microscopic convexities and concavities. Compared with the traditional rough surface of artificial stone countertops (macro visible concave-convex surface), it is not easy to hide dirt and breed bacteria, and it is easier to clean.
2. Quartz stone countertops are truly cost-effective countertops:
Cabinets are the most important durable consumer goods in modern homes, and their matching countertops are the most frequently used part of people’s daily lives. There is no good cabinet without a good countertop. No one wants a very beautiful cabinet to be scratched, aging, or even broken in less than two years. Compared with ordinary artificial stone, quartz stone countertops have the characteristics of longer life, less discoloration, less deformation, anti-permeation, and more scratch resistance. Basically, no special maintenance is needed, and the surface can still be as beautiful as new after many years of use. Generally, artificial stone needs to be regularly polished and polished if it is to be kept fresh. This will reduce the thickness of the countertop and affect the service life, and will cause certain inconveniences to users. Therefore, compared with common artificial stone countertops in terms of health, environmental protection, ease of use (easy to clean, easy to maintain), and physical and chemical properties, quartz stone countertops are truly cost-effective countertops.
3. Quartz stone countertops are truly scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and heat-resistant, long-lasting, and beautiful countertops
Scratch resistance: The surface hardness of the quartz stone countertops reaches 7-7.5 on the Mohs Hard Seat, which means that the metal appliances used in the family are not easy to scratch and wear. Generally, artificial stone countertops have a low surface hardness and many scratches when used, which not only affects the appearance but also becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Generally, the maintenance of artificial stone needs to be re-polished every 1-2 years to keep the table surface flat and smooth. The dust generated during polishing is electrostatically charged and will be adsorbed on the furniture and difficult to clean. The powder method is floating in the air. It is also difficult to settle. After being inhaled into the human body, it will cause damage to health. Moreover, regular polishing will reduce the thickness of the countertop, reduce the strength of the countertop, increase the unevenness of the surface, and shorten the service life of the countertop. Quartz stone countertops basically need no maintenance due to their high surface hardness and easy care.
Contamination resistance: Quartz stone contains a variety of composite materials and ultra-fine quartz powder, forming a non-porous structure on the surface of the countertop, with an average water absorption rate of only 0.03%. The high-quality materials ensure that the quartz stone is basically free of penetration.
Heat resistance: The main material of quartz stone is quartz particles, and quartz itself has a very high melting point (1600°C). After adding a small number of composite materials, the surface still has a quite high heat resistance and burn resistance, enough to resist heat Oil, hot pot, cigarette butts, etc. burns to maintain a long-lasting smoothness, and there will be no dents, burnt spots, etc.
4. Quartz stone countertops are truly non-toxic and non-radiation environmentally friendly countertops:
It is well known that natural stone contains heavy metal elements and is radioactive. The raw material of quartz stone before artificial compounding is granular. After strict ore beneficiation, ore washing, and impurity removal purification treatment, it does not contain heavy metal impurities, and there is no radioactive problem.
Corrosion resistance: Quartz stone countertops have excellent acid and alkali resistance. Its corrosion resistance is the best among artificial stones. The acid and alkali in daily life are not enough to damage the countertop. Compared with artificial stone, quartz stone is more resistant to acid and alkali.
Anti-aging: The quartz stone material contains high-quality compounding agents and anti-aging additives, which make it have strong anti-aging ability. Under normal temperature, after many years of use, the aging phenomenon of the material is basically not observed.
Anti-fading: Quartz stone is mainly based on mineral color and has a high resistance to fading. It is difficult to observe the color change without the perennial local contrast irradiation under strong sunlight. It can basically be regarded as a non-fading material.
