What is quartz?

Quartz is a new artificial stone product made of ingredients wrapped in a small cristobalite or Shek Kong synthesis, with more than 90% natural white central white Ran mixing with an ultra-high-performance resins and specialty pigments and integrated into one. Its main material is quartz, quartz has no radiation, high hardness, thus creating a quartz stone countertops from being scrapped (Mohs hardness 7), cannot be dirty and dyed (vacuum manufacturing. dense non-porous), cannot be fired (quartz material. Temperature resistance of 300 'C), non-aging "30 polishing process without maintenance), non-toxic and non-radiation (NSF certification, free of heavy metals, may be in direct contact with food). quartz table tops has various colors, Gobi series, crystal series, granite series the Twinkling Star Series have more features, and can be widely used in public buildings, hotel, meals pounds, banks, hospitals, exhibition, laboratory, etc.), and home decoration, kitchen countertops, sinks, kitchen wall, table, coffee table, windowsill, door, etc.) is a non-radioactive pollution, environmentally friendly, reusable green new construction interior decoration material.

Performance of Quartz

First, quartz slabs is easy to clean: any dirt can be cleaned with soap or detergent. Second, anti-dirt: cannot be penetrant by any liquid, no pores and pores. Stubborn stains can be removed, such as ink or hair dye. Three, impact resistance: compared to the general stone or polymer, it is anti-rupture, stronger cracking ability, not easy to be scrapped. Fourth, heat resistance: the heat resistance is more than the surface of the material in general. Fifth, the flame resistance: it is a flame retardant material. Sixth, food standards: can do with food regular contact. Several, healthy: under the condition of completely no pores surface, mold, bacteria and other microorganisms cannot survive.

The Features and Applications of Quartz

Quartz stone is made of 94% quartz and 6% of the resin, the hardness is 7 degrees, while the stone is synthetic marble powder and resin hardness is 4-6 degrees simply put, and quartz ratio engineered stone is hard, scratch-resistant and wear-resistant. Engineered stone quartz stone, due to its material characteristics, determines its features of high temperature, the temperature below 300 degrees Celsius will not have any impact on it, that is, no deformation and fracture; and it contains a lot of resin, at high temperatures it is particularly prone to distortion and manifestations. Quartz stone is a radiation-free product, and there is no adverse impact on the body. It can be widely used in public buildings (hotels, meals, pounds, banks, hospitals, exhibition, laboratory, etc.) and family decoration (kitchen countertop, sink, kitchen and bathroom walls, dining table, coffee table, window sills, door pockets, etc.). It is a non-radioactive contamination, reusable, environmentally friendly, green new construction interior decoration material.
 
Quartz Countertops Advantages

Quartz countertops are made of broken glass and quartz sands. Quartz advantage is wear resistant, not afraid of scratching, good heat resistance and can be a large area of flooring wall-to do all kinds of kitchen countertops and the seam is not obvious, durable, it is a good choice of kitchen cabinets. Not easy to scrap. Quartz content is as high as 90-95% quartz, and the quartz crystal natural mineral hardness is only second to diamond in nature, and the surface hardness high hardness is 7.5. No pollute. quartz kitchen countertops are manufactured under vacuum circumstance, it is the dense non-porous composite material, and the quartz surface acid-base of kitchen has excellent corrosion resistance. Not easy to be aging. The bright quartz surface of the quartz top is a complex multi-channel polishing process, a liquid substance will not penetrate, not yellowing and discoloration the daily cleaning simply rinse with water, is simple. Even after a long period of use, the surface of newly installed countertops as beautiful, and no maintenance. Not easy to be fired. Natural quartz crystal is a typical refractory material having a melting point of up to 1300 degrees, 90-95% natural quartz completely retardant. Non-toxic and non-radiating, the quartz stone surface is smooth, flat, no scratches stranded, the dense nonporous material structure allows bacteria nowhere to hide, can be in direct contact with food, safe and non-toxic! Selected natural quartz with a high quality quartz crystalline mineral, the SiO2 content is more than 99.9%, and in the manufacturing process to miscellaneous purified, the raw material does not contain any heavy metal impurities that may lead to radiation, 94% of the quartz crystal, and other resin additives makes quartz countertops there is no danger of radiation contamination.

Disadvantage of Quartz Table Tops
Due to the hardness is too hard of quartz stone countertops, and it is difficult to process, the shape is too single (modern industry has deep processing). The quartz table tops are very high in price.
Maintenance of Quartz Table Top

Do not put the high or wok pan for long on the table. The wok, hot pot, or other high temperature appliances directly take from the stove or oven, microwave oven and other utensils will do damage to the countertops. Operation should avoid sharp objects scratching countertops. Regardless of the choice of countertops should be on the chopping block chopping cooking food, in addition to avoid leaving knife marks, damage blade, and can still do better hygiene. The mesa keeps dry. Keep countertops clean, and try not to soak the countertop for a long time or standing water, keep countertops clean and dry. Prevent corrosive chemical exposure countertops. Daily as much as possible to avoid the countertops the related corrosive chemicals touched in contact with, if inadvertently, rinse immediately with plenty of soap and water surface or consulting professionals.
