What are the advantages and disadvantages of Quartz Countertops compared to stainless steel countertops?

Nov. 09, 2019

As the pace of life continues to accelerate, the pressure on life increases. For the choice of Quartz Stone Slab For Kitchen, many people will choose to be beautiful and simple, and more importantly, it is convenient to take care of. At present, the common countertop materials on the market are mainly artificial stone, stainless steel, quartz stone, and natural stone. Because quartz stone has the common advantages of artificial stone and natural stone, it ranks first in the table. As of today, we mainly understand the advantages and disadvantages of quartz stone countertops and stainless steel countertops.

We still look at the Carrara White Quartz Countertops first. The advantage is that it has a smooth surface without any capillary slits, which makes the bacteria have nowhere to hide. The production uses vacuum high-pressure molding to make it wear-resistant and scratch-resistant (generally the iron does not cause any damage to the surface) and is resistant to high temperatures ( 300 ° or less), anti-penetration (plate water absorption rate is almost zero, 0.03%), non-toxic, non-radiative. It belongs to one of the national environmental protection materials for construction. Due to the current product quality, the quality of the inferior quartz stone is short and easy to crack. The real brand product cracks rarely, even if there is a problem, a White Calacatta Quartz Surface Manufacturer will be replaced.

Looking at stainless steel, stainless steel gives people a feeling of harder cold ice. The corners of the countertops and the joints also lack reasonable and effective treatment methods. They are not resistant to scratching, and they can draw scratches with a hard object. Once the table is scratched by a sharp weapon, it will leave irreparable traces. Among these small scratches, it is easy to hide dirt and make bacteria grow. The kitchen is relatively wet and the underside of the stainless steel countertop is too deformable to deform and cannot be repaired after being deformed. Pay special attention to its surface when taking care of it. Moreover, most of the domestic stainless steel countertops are prone to oxidation, which is quite different from imported similar products. The price of imported products is higher.

Why the quartz stone splicing glue does not dry for a long time

At present, quartz stone has been widely used in the whole building decoration. The quartz stone has rich color, the appearance can be manually adjusted, and has the same hardness as natural stone. Therefore, the processing of quartz stone is not the same as ordinary artificial stone, especially for seamless splicing. For the glue used for splicing, many people will recommend that we use the resin glue dispensed by quartz stone manufacturers, which tend to belong in use. Time is not solidified, what is the cause?

The reasons for the glue not coagulating are as follows:

1. When the workers are working, the glue is not strictly adjusted according to the proportion. If it is not adjusted according to the proportion, it will lead to no drying. If the time is long, it will pollute the stone!

2, not according to the environment (temperature, humidity) of the construction site, the use of resin glue is to be used with quartz powder and curing agent, so there are certain requirements for temperature and humidity, the amount of curing agent should be added Variety.

3. Water entering the glue, or in rainy days and wet areas is also a cause of slow curing of the glue. In this case, the amount of curing agent should be increased.
