Quartz stone and granite with die-cast artificial stone, what is the difference between them?
Stone has a long history of use in Chinese architectural decoration. Because the stone is easy to obtain in the early stage, and it is durable, beautiful, gorgeous and noble, it has been widely used in buildings and has been used ever since. As people's awareness of natural environmental protection continues to increase, and the state's control, the supply of stone market is insufficient. The emergence of artificial stone products is a good complement. Currently, the artificial stone on the market has acrylic, quartz and granite. The most common confusion is quartz stone and granite.
Quartz stone is also called synthetic stone and regenerated stone. Because the composition of the filler quartz in the plate is as high as 93%, it is called quartz stone by quartz stone manufacturers. All the raw materials for quartz stone are made of environmentally friendly raw materials, so quartz stone is also called indoor green decorative stone. The price of quartz stone is higher than other stone.
Gangshi, also known as engineering stone, is also a kind of artificial stone, and its appearance is very similar to that of artificial quartz. However, the filler of the granite is natural gravel, that is, the stone scrap is reused, and it is applied to outdoor engineering decoration, and the price is relatively cheap.
Quartz stone is die-casted from 93% quartz and 7% resin. The hardness is up to grade 7 in Mohs hardness. The granite is die-cast from marble powder (gravel) and resin, so the hardness is generally only Mohs. Hardness 4-6. Quartz stone can be reused, because the inner material of quartz stone is evenly distributed, so the front and back sides are basically the same, and the granite is not reusable because its front effect is specially made. Once damaged, it can no longer be used. Moreover, each of the quartz stones is die-casted, and the granite is cut after the overall die-casting.
Each product has its own value, and their performance will be different, so you should choose according to the field and requirements you apply.
