Is there a gap in the quartz stone table top

Jun 04, 2020

Some netizens said that the quartz stone countertops used in the cabinets at home, but there is a difference in color when one of them is viewed against the light. The merchant explained that the seam orientation is purely normal.

In response to this question, netizens came to ask me if this is really the case. The answer is true and cannot be avoided 100% completely, but there are ways to weaken this doubt.

As the most widely used countertop material in the overall cabinet industry, quartz stone has many advantages:

The Mohs hardness of quartz is extremely high, and it is not afraid of being scratched by sharp objects;

Acid and alkali resistance, high temperature resistance, there is no doubt that the burnt pot is placed directly;

Non-toxic, no radiation, safe and durable;

If you want to talk about defects, the most notable is that the stitching seam can not be completely traceless.

The color difference mentioned above is that in the direction of the splicing seam, it is generally glued with glue, and sometimes it needs to be polished twice. Talent will also be different. The way to weaken this effect is to reduce the length of the seam as much as possible, look at the accuracy of the process, try not to polish on site or try to minimize the area of polishing.

In addition, the quartz stone has strong anti-fouling ability, not to say that it is completely free of contamination, especially the white light-colored quartz stone. If you are afraid of seepage, either choose dark-colored quartz stones as much as possible, and the seepage will not be too significant, or you should work hard and clean up in time. Also, do not put the ironware on the countertop for a long time. If it is rusted, it will not wipe off the rust.

How can I tell whether it is quartz stone or granite or other stone when I buy it? The merchant said that what the quartz content is, you can't see it. If you have to distinguish between good and bad, just do a violent test, ask the merchant to take a sample, use a key, a knife, etc. to test the hardness, use a lighter to test the high temperature resistance function, use vinegar to see the acid resistance, use soy sauce or ink to test the resistance Seepage function.

Quartz stone is still the best countertop choice now
