Why is it difficult for the Quartz Stone market to distinguish between true and false?

Among many decorative materials, the stone has excellent decorativeness due to its colorful surface and natural and harmonious texture. Marble Pattern Calacatta Quartz Countertop is used as a decorative material in the interior decoration, which can give people a sense of harmony, elegance, solemnity, nobility, luxury and other beauty. As people pay more and more attention to environmental protection decoration, non-toxic, radiation-free and formaldehyde-free green and environmentally friendly quartz stone has been developed rapidly. Quartz stone is also called synthetic stone and artificial stone. Because the content of quartz in the plate is as high as 93%, Therefore, quartz stone manufacturers call it "quartz stone". Many people buy the granite by mistake in the purchase. Why are the granite false and real quartz stone? Let's find out with China Quartz Slab Manufacturers.

Quartz stone is an artificial stone die-casting plate. The plate is filled with 93% quartz and 7% resin. After filling the quartz sand to remove impurities, it does not contain harmful objects and radiation sources. It is called indoor green environmental protection decorative stone, so the price of quartz stone is much higher than other stones. Granite, also known as engineering stone is also a type of artificial stone, and its appearance is similar to artificial quartz stone. However, the filling material of the granite is a natural crushed stone, that is, the stone crushed material is reused, and it is used in outdoor engineering decoration, and the price is relatively cheap.

How to distinguish two kinds of stone so similar? Although quartz stone and granite are both artificial stone die-casting plates, the pressure and production equipment of the press are still different. First look at their specific gravity. Quartz has a higher density than other stone materials, so sample granites of the same size are much lighter. Observing from the side, the quartz stone is uniformly distributed by artificial cloth particles, which is consistent inside and outside. Finally, look at their hardness. The hardness of quartz is second only to that of the diamond, and its hardness is as high as 7.5 on the Mohs scale, so there is no way for general ironware to scratch it. The most important thing is that Mo Yan wants to be cheap, and one price and one price is the same law since ancient times.

The application of Carrara White Quartz Countertop:

The application of the Carrara white quartz countertop is gradually being promoted. Although there is a lot of artificial stone, in order to be able to use it for a longer time, the maintenance skills in daily life cannot be ignored. The foundation of artificial stone maintenance is to understand its characteristics and to provide the right medicine.

Firstly, clean the dust and sand on the artificial stone-ground in a timely manner daily; brown pads can be placed at the doorway and important pedestrian flow areas to prevent pedestrians from stepping on the ground; the protective an agent should be applied regularly. Type products can be used without crystal hardening treatment and waxing protection; Secondly, acid and alkaline cleaning agents cannot be used: artificial synthetic stones contain more than 95% of natural marble or quartz sand, and marble is limestone and the main component is calcium carbonate, So non-neutral substances will destroy its gloss. In order to achieve the cleaning effect, the cleaning agents sold on the market often use alkaline substances with good cleaning effects as raw materials. As a result of long-term use, the gloss of synthetic stones will decrease.
