Knowledge | Quartz stone countertops are deformed in use, what is the cause?

Home decoration, people not only pursue the external beauty, but also the requirements for the environmental performance of decorative materials. As we all know, the current decorative materials, the price of relatively environmentally friendly materials is very high. It is often necessary to move in after half a year after renovation, that is, people are worried about the harmful substances in the decoration. For ordinary home decoration, due to the problem of renovation budget, the requirements for environmental protection are often neglected. As a green decorative stone, quartz stone is recognized by everyone. However, there will be some problems. Many people have asked Xiaobian to ask questions about the deformation of quartz stone countertops. Here is a list of the reasons why the quartz stone countertop deformation is raised by Xiaobian!

The raw material of quartz stone plate is more than 90% quartz sand and 7% resin and other binders are cured by vacuum, high pressure and kiln. Therefore, the higher the amount of resin, the worse the quality of quartz stone, and the more easily the quartz stone is deformed, the less resistant it is to scratching. To reduce the possibility of deformation, firstly, only reduce the resin content, select the machine with higher pressure, choose quartz sand with higher density, and increase the pressure to increase the tightness during molding. This is related to the production of quartz stone manufacturers. In addition, it is a loophole left in the processing and installation. When the cabinet is connected, there is no possibility that the pad or the strip will be deformed and lifted.

There are still many people who choose to make homemade cabinets. The countertops are made of quartz stone. The bonding method is also cemented. This bonding method often separates cement and quartz stone. This is because the cement is CaC03, an alkaline oxide that reacts with the acid, just as the quartz stone raw material contains an acidic resin. The reduction in the cement reacts with the acid in the resin, and the paste on the countertop of the homemade cabinet can be selected and glued with black clay.
