Quartz stone is a common mineral, the main color is white, formed by the metamorphic crystallization of sandstone, the main component is 95% silicon dioxide, the hardness is as high as 7.5, the hardness of natural stone is 2.7 in China, the hardness is second only to that of masonry natural minerals. It is much larger than sharp tools such as knives and spatulas used in the kitchen, and will not be scratched by it. Due to its high hardness, it can be widely used in public buildings (hotels, restaurants, banks, hospitals, exhibitions, laboratories, etc.) ) Quartz stone is not cut from the mountain in one piece like marble. The process is actually the same as artificial marble. Artificial stone is compressed and synthesized with calcium carbonate powder and synthetic resin, while quartz stone is also quartz crystal and resin. It is synthesized into a big stone and cut, so why few people know that quartz stone is also a kind of artificial stone? In fact, it is because quartz stone is used in a wide range. In order to distinguish the name, it is directly distinguished from artificial stone. Artificial stone is in There is a great market potential in home decoration and architectural decoration. Its surface is bright and clean, bright and clean like jade, and it is very popular among consumers. Artificial stone is the general name of artificial marble and artificial agate. It is made of unsaturated polyester resin and The filler and pigment are mixed and made through certain processing procedures. Artificial stone has the advantages of non-toxic, non-permeable, easy to cut, color can be arbitrarily allocated, and shape can be cast arbitrarily.

The key link in the production and processing of artificial stone is its molding process and surface treatment. The molding process determines the internal quality of artificial stone, such as hardness, curvature, temperature resistance, etc., and the surface treatment effect affects its external appearance. Today, artificial stone molding has been produced in an assembly line, and its molding process has tended to be stable. However, in the surface treatment process, there are many problems such as grinding and polishing, wasting manpower, wasting time, serious pollution, and high defect rate. The appearance and thickness of artificial stone can be finished with a sander, but the fine sanding and side sanding of the artificial stone surface must be done manually. Also can't make high light and have the effect of plump feeling. Therefore, quartz stone is actually artificial stone, but there are many types of artificial stone. Similar to inkstone, it is also a kind of artificial stone. The main source material of terrazzo is cement. Of course, artificial stone is more wear-resistant, acid-resistant, high-temperature resistant, and It also has strong functions such as impact resistance, compression resistance, flexural resistance, and penetration resistance.

Its handling of deformation, bonding, turning and other parts is unique. But artificial marble also has fatal shortcomings, because it is artificially synthesized, the artificial stone has relatively poor hardness, and it will deform after a long time. The texture of natural marble is very beautiful, hard, scratch-resistant, and wear-resistant; but it has pores, it is easy to accumulate grease, and natural marble is brittle, so there are still some shortcomings, but Foshan MoCo Marble Tiles specializes in mining and processing Foshan white marble, focusing on the stone industry for 13 years, can completely solve the problem of brittleness and porosity of natural marble, just add mesh and glue directly, it is natural and pollution-free. For those who say that natural marble has radiation, it is simply nonsense. If Natural stone has radiation, so artificial stone made of natural stone raw materials has no radiation? .
