How to choose high-performance quartz stone kitchen countertops ?
Kitchen is one of the key points of home decoration. Beautiful, environmentally friendly, anti-cracking, stain-resistant and easy-to-clean countertops is indispensable for a stylish kitchen. At present, quartz stone is the most popular kitchen countertop. Then, how do we choose high-performance and fashionable countertops. [Hardness]: The content of artificial quartz stone is above 93%, and the resin content of inferior products is too high. Scrape the quartz stone countertop with a hard object such as a knife. The high-quality quartz stone will not be scratched.
[High temperature resistance]: We can use cigarette butts to directly burn the surface of the quartz stone , but the burning of the cigarette butts will not leave any traces on the high-quality quartz stone surface.
[Corrosion resistance]: High-quality quartz stone is not doped with marble or granite powder. These minerals have calcium carbonate. A certain proportion of acid drops on the surface of the quartz stone . The high-quality quartz stone has no reaction.
[Stain resistance]: Inferior quartz stone has poor stain resistance. Soy sauce, vinegar, etc. may infiltrate the countertop within a day and be difficult to clean. When buying a countertop, use a water-based pen to draw on the surface of the quartz stone. The high-quality quartz stone can be restored to its brightness with a wipe of a rag, leaving no trace at all.
[Pay attention to the crack resistance of the slab]: Because the quartz sand content of the quartz stone is more than 93%, the hardness is high, and the brittleness is high, and the toughness is low. When the material cannot withstand the internal stress caused by thermal expansion and contraction, cracking will occur. Therefore, it is necessary to choose quartz stone with high crack resistance.
[Texture, color and kitchen overall match]: The texture of quartz stone is close to natural stone, but the poor quality quartz stone has a strong plastic appearance. The high-quality quartz stone is saturated in color, bright in color, and uniform in particles, especially the ones in multi-color. When choosing the color of countertop, need to consider the overall style matching of the countertop and the kitchen door panel color, floor pattern and other spaces.
[Countertop processing technology]: Countertops with good processing technology, the joints are handled perfectly, and there are almost no joints. Unqualified processing will cause the countertop to crack, and the rough processing will also affect the aesthetics of the countertop.
