What is the difference between natural marble and artificial quartz?
At present, the most common countertop materials for kitchen decoration are: artificial stone, acrylic, natural stone, stainless steel and acrylic. Each material has its own advantages, the most common of which is natural stone and quartz. What is the difference between them?
Natural stone includes a variety of patterns of granite, marble, more commonly used are black and white flowers. The density of natural stone is relatively large, the texture is hard, the scratch resistance is very outstanding, the wear resistance is good, the texture is very beautiful, and the cost is relatively low. The most commonly used price is only a few hundred yuan or so, which is economical. a countertop material. The price of high-grade natural stone countertops is also thousands of yuan. However, natural stone has pores, easy to accumulate oil stains; natural stone is short, two pieces can not be integrated when it is spliced, the gap is easy to breed bacteria; natural stone density is large, need to be strong cabinet support; although the texture is hard, but the elasticity is insufficient, in case of Cracks can occur in heavy blows, which are difficult to repair. Some invisible natural cracks can also be broken when the temperature changes sharply. Natural marble is brittle and cannot make a countertop with a width of more than 1 meter.
Quartz stone is a species of artificial stone. However, because of its unique performance and manufacturing process, the price of quartz stone is higher than that of ordinary artificial stone. Quartz stone is made of natural quartz crystal ore as the main raw material. Through the introduction of imported fully automated control production technology equipment, the decorative panel is pressed under high temperature and high pressure. On the basis of ensuring high hardness, high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, impact resistance and easy cleaning, there is no radioactive hazard. Ultra-hard environmentally friendly composite quartz plate produced by the world's most advanced technology, containing up to 93% natural quartz, containing resin, mineral pigments and other additive components. The selected materials are extremely densely formed by toning and vacuum high pressure. The compact composite is made by complex slitting and surface polishing process. The surface of the plate is as hard as granite, the color is as rich as marble, the structure is like glass, anti-corrosion and anti-fouling, and the shape after finishing The artificial stone is as perfect. Due to her excellent performance in many aspects, she has become the ideal material for the world's kitchen countertops and boutique wall. Because quartz stone has higher requirements on the processing technology, the quality is also divided into three or six, etc., so in the selection must pick a brand with good reputation and guaranteed service.
