They don't know the difference at all. Since you can't tell what is natural marble and artificial marble, let alone how to choose which kind of marble for decoration. So below, the editor will briefly introduce the performance, advantages and disadvantages of natural marble and artificial marble, so that everyone can quickly understand.
Because artificial marble is made of a variety of crushed stones, artificial marble has many characteristics that natural marble does not have, such as various colors, good flexibility, unobvious connection treatment, strong overall sense, and colorful, all of which are It is not available in natural marble. The biggest disadvantage of artificial marble is that it has significant damage to the human body (formaldehyde), and this is also the most concerned issue for consumers. Marble decoration renderings 1. First of all, the structure and performance of natural marble: Natural stone is a metamorphic rock formed by the original rock in the earth's crust through high temperature and high pressure in the earth's crust.
Natural stone is mainly divided into marble and granite in daily use. Anything with texture is called marble, and the one with spots is called granite. Natural marble is dense but not hard, easy to process, carve and Grinding, polishing, etc. Marble is smooth and delicate after polishing, with natural and smooth texture and high decorativeness. Marble has low water absorption and high durability, and can be used for 40-100 years.
Advantages: natural pattern, good hand feeling after polishing, strong hardness, much more wear-resistant than artificial ones, not afraid of coloring, has pores, will penetrate Disadvantages: natural marble is brittle, slightly poor in flatness, the connection between marble and marble is somewhat obvious, cannot To achieve seamless splicing, it is easy to breed bacteria and lack elasticity. 2. Next is artificial marble: advantages: various colors, relatively natural flexibility, no obvious joints when splicing marble, and strong overall sense! Disadvantages: chemical synthetic substances are harmful to the human body, small color hardness, afraid of scratches, Afraid of being hot, afraid. Some inferior artificial stone slabs contain excessive amounts of harmful substances such as benzene, formaldehyde, lead, and organic acids. Formaldehyde and benzene will continuously volatilize within 3-5 years. This harmful substance is harmful to the human respiratory system and digestive system. It must hurt.
Then let's talk about the identification method of artificial marble and natural marble: 1. The color of natural marble is relatively bright, and there will be a large area of natural lines. In our jargon, this stone is alive. 2. The color of artificial marble is relatively turbid, and there is no grain. The jargon means that the stone is dead. It can be seen from the above that the biggest difference between natural marble and artificial marble is that one is naturally formed, and the other is processed and synthesized in the future.
Finally, the editor will introduce the respective uses of the two kinds of marble: 1. Generally speaking, natural marble has high compressive strength, wear resistance and durability. Due to the fine pores on its surface, it is weak in stain resistance. Although the merchants will deal with the color and other aspects of the surface when it leaves the factory, it will generally reveal its true face after half a year to a year of use.
In interior decoration, marble is suitable for TV table tops, window sill tops, and indoor floors. Granite is suitable for thresholds, kitchen countertops, and outdoor floors. 2. Artificial stone is superior to natural stone in terms of color, moisture resistance, acid resistance, alkali resistance, high temperature resistance, and patchwork. It is suitable for use in some harsh environments, such as kitchens, bathrooms, balconies and other places.
The choice of stone on the balcony is mainly anti-slip, wear-resistant, and not easy to fade, while the stone in the bathroom needs to be guaranteed in terms of anti-slip, anti-acid, anti-alkali and moisture-proof. Artificial stone is easy to clean, and dirt can be cleaned with soap or detergent. Natural stone and artificial stone have different advantages, and consumers should choose according to different locations in the home when purchasing.
When choosing stone materials, you need to focus not only on appearance, but also on its performance and quality. Having said so many advantages and disadvantages of them, the owner still has to choose marble according to the actual situation in the end.
