Is the quartz stone plate really dense and non-porous?

Oct 30, 2018

When the customer enters the cabinet shop to select the countertop, the clerk is the first to push the quartz stone. Because the quartz stone has high hardness, no scratching and no penetration, it is a dense non-porous composite material manufactured under vacuum, high pressure and high vibration conditions. Speaking of this, one can't help but ask, is the quartz slate really dense and non-porous? To this end, we consulted the quartz stone manufacturer and got the following reply.

In fact, the pores in quartz slabs are ubiquitous, but reducing the macroporous content and lowering the average pore size are beneficial to improve the permeability resistance of quartz slate. The size of the pore size also has a corresponding name. A harmless pore of less than 20 nm is not affected by the resistance of the product; 20-50 nm is a less harmful pore, 50-100 nm is a harmful pore, and more than 100 nm is a harmful pore. More harmful holes have a greater influence on the permeability resistance of quartz slabs.

In addition, the shape of the filler particles of the quartz slate is closely related to the size of the pores. Quartz plates made of quartz particles with high sphericity have low porosity and low content of macropores and super-large pores (>1000 nm). This is mainly due to the tight packing of particles with high sphericity and the compact structure of the hardened resin mortar. Therefore, changing the particle morphology is beneficial to improve the accumulation structure of quartz stone, reduce harmful pores in quartz stone slab, and improve the hardness, density and anti-penetration properties of quartz stone slab.

As the overall cabinets are slowly becoming popular in the renovation, more and more artificial quartz stones are used on the countertops. It is used frequently in the kitchen, and it is necessary to wash dishes and vegetables. Let's take a look at the advantages of quartz stone for sinks.

1. First of all, the quartz stone material is very environmentally friendly and does not contain any substances harmful to human body.


2, quartz stone sink is not afraid of pollution. It has excellent corrosion resistance to the acid and alkali of the kitchen, even if the daily liquid substance does not penetrate into the interior. The wiping method is very simple, just wipe it off with a cloth or water or a detergent. If you encounter stubborn material, you can use a blade to scrape off the surface of the retentate.


3. The quartz stone process is more complicated. After more than 30 complicated polishing treatments, it will not be scratched by the shovel. Even if it is used for a long time, its surface will not be old, and it will be as bright as the new table.

Many people under the sink use tin foil paper, but this owner uses a custom-made quartz stone countertop, which is not afraid of water, and is more sanitary.

The whole cabinet is good, is it very refreshing, the price is more affordable than the finished product, and the cost is higher.
