Does Quartz Stone Slabs have the ability to resist bursting?

Nov. 29, 2019

Quartz stone has become an indispensable decorative stone for home decoration. Its scientific name is polymer composite material, also known as synthetic stone, which belongs to artificial stone products. It is made of 93% (not less than 90%) quartz crystal and 7% resin and other binders by manual die casting. Because the content of quartz sand in the quartz stone plate is higher than 90%, it is selected by Quartz Stone Table Top Suppliers are called quartz stones.

The surface of quartz stone is smooth, dense and non-porous. The density of the plate is 2.3-2.6g / cm³ (15mm thickness), and the water absorption rate is 0.02% is almost zero. And so on, this is what we often hear in the purchase. Today, let's talk about the burst resistance of Carrara Marble Countertops!

People choose Carrara marble countertops because they are attracted by its anti-cracking ability and some sellers will also conduct small-scale anti-cracking experiments for buyers on the spot. However, why do we often have so many cracking cases in use, although Carrara marble countertops have anti-cracking performance, it does not mean that it will not burst, and its anti-cracking resistance is definitely better than other stone materials.

Why do Carrara marble countertops explode? Because Carrara marble countertops are brittle polymer composites, they also have the characteristics of thermal expansion and contraction. They also have certain shrinkage stress, impact toughness, elongation at break and other mechanical properties. When the material cannot withstand thermal expansion and contraction, Cracking occurs when internal stresses and severe external impacts occur. There is also a human factor. The chipping of the Carrara marble countertops during processing has caused a phenomenon of chipping, which causes small cracks in the board to cause cracks during use. Carrara marble countertops also cause cracking when no expansion joints are reserved.

Although Carrara marble countertops may occasionally crack and crack, Carrara marble countertops are still a good choice for decorative stone. As long as you choose a good Carrara marble countertop to avoid unnecessary damage, I believe that Carrara marble countertops can still be used for a long time without problems. How to avoid it in use? Be careful not to locally heat the surface for a long time, and do not hit it with heavy objects. No matter how good a product is, it has its weaknesses. Only daily maintenance can prolong its service life!

Artificial Quartz Stone Slabs

The application of Artificial quartz stone slabs is gradually being promoted. Although there are a lot of artificial quartz stone slabs, in order to be able to use it for a longer time, the maintenance skills in daily life can not be ignored. The basis of artificial quartz stone slabs maintenance is to understand its characteristics and to prescribe 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 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.
