How to Avoid Polishing of Quartz Stone Stitching?

Jun. 23, 2020

As a White Quartz Countertops Supplier, share with you. Quartz stone is made by pressing quartz sand (glass particles) and resin through equipment. It belongs to artificial stone products and is also called synthetic stone. The advantages of quartz stone plate are wear resistance, not afraid of scratching, high temperature resistance, flame retardant, anti-permeation, easy to clean, safe, non-toxic and non-radiation. The disadvantage is that the hardness of the plate is too strong, it is not easy to process, the color is polished and the price of quartz is higher.

Quartz stone processing is familiar with natural marble and granite, because the highest hardness of quartz stone plate can reach 7 Mohs hardness. However, this also brings a certain trouble to the processing. The surface of the quartz stone is polished by more than thirty high-pressure high-speed water milling, and the surface crystal brightness can reach more than 80. Therefore, it is inevitable to grind in the processing. Quartz stone will lose its original luster and blush after being polished by a hand-held grinder. The darker the color, the more obvious. Avoid grinding during processing!

After the quartz stone products are spliced in the processing field, they can also be polished with a large water mill, but in construction and installation, we can only rely on hand tools. At this time, we should avoid sanding. I will look at how to reduce the polishing rate in the installation and splicing of common quartz stone countertops. First of all, we have to talk about the flatness of the quartz stone countertops, so that the gap between the two plates at the joint is as small as possible, and the height difference between the plates is also small. The control of the gap can be adjusted by cutting or grinding; the control of the height difference of the board surface is adjusted by the way of the bottom liner; the smaller the better. Then to prepare the glue, the original resin glue from the quartz stone manufacturer should be used, and the curing agent and quartz powder should be added according to the on-site temperature and humidity. After the preparation, the color should be checked on the plate. The last step is splicing. Paper tape should be used on both sides of the splicing seam, and the glue should be evenly applied to the gap for squeezing and fixing. After the glue is completely dry, use a polishing sheet of more than 3000 to add water and toss it once to complete. If the seam glue trace is not obvious, this step can be omitted.

In the specific application of quartz stone, two pieces or even multiple pieces cannot be avoided. Because the hardness of the quartz stone plate is up to 7 Mohs hardness, after the splicing, in order to make the whole seem to be integrated, the technology of quartz stone manufacturers and processing masters is tested. Specific how to operate, we can operate in the following ways.

Conduct mutual inspection on all large and small materials. The contents of the mutual inspection include: the direction of the skirt, the position of the edging, the direction of the hypotenuse, the length and width of the small materials of the skirt, and whether there is any splicing between the plates Color difference. Before making, we must understand the side structure and small material specifications of the countertop, so that we are aware of it and do not stick the wrong side.
