As an Engineered Quartz Solid Surfaces Factory, share with you. Quartz stone has been developed in China for nearly 20 years. With the continuous improvement of the production capacity and technology of quartz stone manufacturers in China, the price of quartz stone is becoming more and more close to the people. More people began to choose quartz stone as the main decorative stone, such as floor laying, indoor wall dry hanging and modeling production, etc. But the most widely used is the Artificial Quartz Countertop, but the cracking phenomenon after the installation of the countertop has always plagued manufacturers and processors.

First, we should first understand the cause and location of cracking. Quartz stone plate is a brittle polymer composite material, which has the characteristics of thermal expansion and cold shrinkage. There are certain shrinkage stress, impact toughness, elongation at break, etc. When the material cannot withstand the internal stress brought by thermal expansion and cold shrinkage or is subject to Cracking occurs during severe external impact. The cracking position is generally the edge cracking extending inwards or the cracking around the opening.

After cracking, how can we prevent cracks from continuing to extend and repair? After the table is cracked, a round hole drill should be used at the top of the crack extension direction to prevent the table from continuing to crack. Repairing should be done by professionals. First, the cracks need to be embedded; then the glue is prepared and poured into the embedded seam; after the glue is completely cured, it is polished. However, there will be traces after the quartz stone is repaired, which has a certain impact on the overall aesthetics. Warm reminder: Brand quartz stone plate manufacturers have a one-year warranty period. If the cracking problem caused by the plate's own problems can be applied to the manufacturer after the warranty period, it is required to replace the new countertop.

The treatment method after cracking, if the quartz stone is cracked, if it is not caused by improper self-operation (cause of the plate itself and improper processing), you can apply for after-sales and replace the new countertop within one year. If it is caused by improper operation, a professional should be sought for repair. First of all, the cracks should be embedded and repaired with the same color resin glue of the manufacturer. After the cracks are embedded, the resin glue is added with quartz powder and stirred to fill, and then repaired and waxed. If the gap is too large, it can be repaired by removing the pad and polishing it and embedding it in the gap.
