What’s The Difference Of Quartz And Artificial Marble Countertop?

uartz stone countertop

Quartz stone countertop is a new kind of new technology artificial stone synthesized from fine and gorgeous stone. Its manufacturing process is connected with a set of most advanced and patented systems. The product is wrapped with more than 90% natural quartz stone or granite, then mixed with an ultra-high performance resin and special pigments. The countertop made of quartz stone material guarantees high hardness, high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, impact resistance, and easy cleaning, without any radioactive elements harmful to the human body. Generally, the quartz stone plate contains up to 93% natural quartz, and also contains resin, mineral pigments and other additives. The selected materials are mixed and vacuum high-pressure to form an extremely compact complex, and then undergo complex slitting and The surface polishing process becomes quartz stone. The surface of this plate is as hard as granite, the color is as rich as marble, the structure is as antiseptic and stain resistant as glass, and the shape after finishing is as perfect as artificial stone.

Its main material is quartz. Quartz stone is non-radiation and high in hardness, which makes the quartz stone countertops scratch-free (Mohs hardness 7), stain-free (vacuum manufacturing. Dense and non-porous), and hot (quartz material. Can be used. Temperature resistance 1300℃), durable (30 polishing processes without maintenance), non-toxic and non-radiation (NSF certification, no heavy metals, direct contact with food). Quartz stone countertops have various colors. Gobi series, crystal series, granite series, and star series are more distinctive and can be widely used in public buildings (hotels, restaurants, banks, hospitals, exhibitions, laboratories, etc.) and home decoration (kitchen countertops, Washstands, kitchen and bathroom walls, dining tables, coffee tables, window sills, door covers, etc.) are a kind of non-radioactive pollution, reusable environmental protection, green new building interior decoration materials.



Artificial marble countertop

Artificial marble is made of unsaturated polyester resin as a binder, which is made of marble powder sand or marble fragments bonded with a binder. Ordinary marble, also called artificial marble. There are two production methods: tablet production and block production, both have their advantages and disadvantages. The former is superior in diagonal and flatness, while the latter is better in uniform color and can also be used for special-shaped processing, such as cylindrical processing. On the market, there are many production methods of block type.

Product characteristics: ① Most of the marble are made of organic pigments of different colors. Organic pigments are not resistant to sunlight, moisture, acid and alkali, and are easy to fade or even change color. ② Most of the marble has a high glue content. On the one hand, the texture of the stone is not strong, and the decoration effect is not high-grade. On the other hand, the glue expands and shrinks greatly, the product is easy to deform and warp, and the service life is short. Moreover, the glue generally contains Volatile toxic gas, harmful to human body. ③The granite has many pores due to the process, and the product has poor impact resistance, easy to seepage and color, poor resistance to disease, its gloss is fake, it is easy to be worn, and it is not durable. ④The marble using marble powder as raw material is not acid resistant, because its main component is CaCO3, which easily reacts with acid to decompose; the hardness of marble powder and binder are very low, so the hardness of the marble is also very low, generally less than Mohs hardness of 3, so it is not wear-resistant, not resistant to scratches, and easy to scratch. ⑤ The first generation of marble contains more or less radioactivity due to the composition of marble and granite.

Artificial marble is mainly used for interior walls and floors. Its physical properties are lower than natural stone and quartz stone during use. When used on the ground, it is prone to bulging, discoloration, scratches, etc. It is extremely difficult to clean after long-term use. There is also a big gap between the surface gloss and natural stone.
