How To Judge The Quality Of Quartz Stone Countertops?

23/12/2020

The artificial quartz stone with more and more popular in stone kitchen countertops use. As we know that this material with many advantages and that suitable for stone countertops use too. Then how to judge the quality of quartz stone countertops? Himalaya Quartz will intrdouce and provide some basic info for customers reference.

First of all, what quality should a good quartz stone have? Consider the following from the perspective of application.Fire prevention, try it yourself with a lighter, but this ordinary quartz stone is fine.Then there is durability: in fact, the durability of quartz stone is largely determined by its density.In general, the high density quartz stone also is better than smaller density too.Is it impermeable or not: Generally speaking, it is difficult to achieve impermeability for inferior quartz stone countertops, or stains on it will penetrate after a while and cannot be wiped off at all. Due to the low density, the service life will be short.For example, we can put a drop of soy sauce on the ingredients and wipe it off after an hour. If it doesn’t wipe it clean, don’t buy it.

How to worry free. In fact, choosing a qualified supplier of quartz stone countertops can save a lot of trouble, he will save customers worry, because they have long-term experience.Therefore, most of the problems that customers worry about are already avoided in advance by experienced companies.See when the other party was established, 2. And whether there is more information on the Internet, 3. Whether it can be searched on the map; 4. What cases have been done, etc.These are all good ways to examine the lower cost of a company

How to judge the quality of “quartz stone”?

From the analysis of raw materials, the main material of quartz stone contains more than 90% of quartz ore and about 10% of resin and particulate trace elements. There are two main types of quartz ore: coarse sand and refined sand. Coarse sand contains more impurity points due to screening reasons, and the ore sand is relatively coarse, so it is not as good-looking and durable as the countertop of refined sand. However, because the price of coarse sand and fine sand raw materials are doubled, many quartz stone countertops on the market are made of coarse sand, but there are not many fine sands. The manufacturers mainly use fine sand and imported Spanish Silestone,Caesarstone,etc.The Chinese famous quartz stone factories like as Bitu, Jinshi Saibang Quartz,Himalaya Quartz, etc.

Looking at the hardness of the plate, there are two methods for quartz stone: one is die casting; the other is casting. Casting quartz stone is directly cast into shape, resulting in pores in the middle of the plate, which is easy to penetrate the plate, and the plate is easy to crack with too much resin. Die-casting quartz stone is formed by press-casting to make the plate tighter and denser without penetration. However, the number of die-cast quartz stones on the market is uneven, mainly due to the size of the press. The presses of small manufacturers are relatively small, usually at a pressure of 20 tons, while the presses of large manufacturers are all above 60 tons and about 90 tons. The force of a square of the plates of large manufacturers is 20T, and the hardness of such plates can reach the bus hardness of 80 or more, and the Mohs hardness of 6 (can be tested by professional departments). Generally, when the countertop is knocked on site, the sound is relatively crisp, and the quality of the countertop is more reliable. 3. Whether quartz stone countertops can be made well depends on the strength of the manufacturer. The strength of the manufacturer is determined by the R&D department, and the color of the quartz stone can reflect the strength of a company.

The color of quartz stone is mainly single color and mixed color. Monochrome mainly depends on whether the background color is transparent, the color is correct, and the number of impurities is used to judge the quality. The mixed-color color system is mainly equipped with solid wood door panels and high-end cabinets, mainly in the titanium series, the magic color series, the leather pattern series, and the ordinary two-color three-color series. Like the small manufacturers and low-end brands on the market today, the quartz stones of the low-end brands are mainly monochromatic, with a little bit of ordinary two-color three-color, and there are few manufacturers with good-looking and complete colors. Finally, from the analysis of the particles, good quartz stone is rich in particles, including glass particles, quartz sand particles, and metal particles, and good plate particles have fewer impurities. Such plates are refreshing, clean and beautiful. Compare with Chinese granite stone, the artificial quartz stone with own special advantages. Quartz stone is divided into casting and moulding plates. The moulding plate is better, with dense density and no pores, while casting often has many pores on the back and sometimes even on the surface. The color of good quartz stone is very pure, and the color of second quartz stone is turbid. When looking at the big slabs, good quartz stones are uniform in thickness and square in size. There are many quartz stones from small workshops. The thickness of one end of the same board and the other end are 2-3mm. Good quartz stone has enough strength and is not easy to break during processing and transportation. Poor quartz stone is very brittle, and it is easy to be slightly bumped and easily broken during processing, transportation and placement.

The quality of the quartz stone countertop mainly depends on the gloss and hardness. The gloss is determined by the quality of the resin in the quartz stone and the grinding head of the polishing machine in the quartz stone production equipment. The better the resin, the better the polishing head. The better the output depends on the raw materials and production equipment. The hardness of the quartz stone depends on the hardness of the quartz sand and the pressure of the quartz stone die-casting machine. The higher the pressure of the die-casting machine, the greater the density of the pressed quartz stone, and the less oil will leak. The hardness can be judged by the weight of the quartz stone, because the tighter the quartz is pressed, the higher the density of the quartz stone. In summary, to judge the quality of quartz stone countertops are two indicators-gloss and weight, which can be compared through color blocks of the same size.
