Quartz stone is a new type of environmentally friendly and green building material that has no radioactive pollution and can be reused. It is based on the unsaturated polyester resin (UPR) or methacrylic resin (PMMA) organic polymer materials as the matrix, with quartz stone powder, particles, and other fillers, adding pigments and other auxiliary agents, after vacuum high-pressure molding polymer Composite materials.

Unsaturated polyester resin: Resin is used as the base material of quartz stone, which plays a role in bonding and curing. The resins currently used to make quartz stones usually include o-benzene type, m-benzene type, neopentyl glycol type, m-benzene / neopentyl glycol type, vinyl ester type, acrylic type, etc.

Filler: The main component of quartz filler is silica, which includes: quartz sand, quartz powder, glass fragments. Its main functions are: one is to fill the volume; the second is to enhance the stone texture of quartz stone; the third is to enhance the mechanical properties of quartz stone; the fourth is to act as combustion aid.

Pigment: The role of pigment in quartz stone is to match a variety of colors, which is a variety of colors. In theory, any color can be mixed out by various pigments.

Curing agent: The curing agent is an indispensable auxiliary agent for the production of quartz stone. Good quartz stone is formed by high-temperature curing.

As a new type of artificial stone product, quartz stone has continuously expanded its application fields. It has been applied to the floors, walls, artistic shapes, and countertops in hotels, hotels, villas, and home improvement.

Why can quartz stone quickly occupy the decoration market, what advantages does it have?

1. Not easy to scratch

Quartz stone has a quartz content of up to 93%. Quartz crystals are natural minerals with a hardness second only to diamonds in nature. Its surface hardness can be as high as 7 on the Mohs scale, which is much greater than knives and other sharp tools used in the kitchen and will not be scratched by it hurt.

2. No pollution

Quartz stone is a dense and non-porous composite material manufactured under vacuum conditions. Its quartz surface has excellent corrosion resistance to the acid and alkali of the kitchen. The liquid substances used daily will not penetrate its interior and be placed for a long time. The liquid on the surface only needs to be cleaned with clean water or clean and bright cleaning agents with a rag. If necessary, the surface of the surface can be scraped off with a blade.

3. Not old

The shiny and new surface of the quartz stone countertop is processed by more than 30 complex Huaguang treatment processes, which will not be scratched by the knife and shovel, will not penetrate the liquid substance, and will not cause problems such as yellowing and discoloration. Daily cleaning only Rinse with fresh water, simple and easy. Even after a long period of continuous use, the surface is as bright as the newly installed countertop, and no maintenance or maintenance is required.

4. Can’t burn

Natural quartz crystal is a typical refractory material. Its melting point is as high as 1300 degrees or more. 93% quartz stone made of natural quartz is completely flame-retardant and will not burn due to high temperature. It also has an unmatched high-temperature resistance such as artificial stone and other countertops. characteristic.

5. Non-toxic and non-radiation

The surface of the quartz stone is smooth, flat, and free of scratches. The dense and non-porous material structure makes bacteria nowhere to hide and can be in direct contact with food, safe, and non-toxic.
