What is quartz stone?


Quartzite, commonly known as quartzite, is a new type of stone that is artificially synthesized from more than 90% of quartz crystals plus resin and other trace elements. It is a large-size plate pressed by a special machine under certain physical and chemical conditions. Its main material is quartz.

Quartz is a mineral that easily becomes liquid by heat or pressure. It is also a fairly common rock-forming mineral that is found in all three major types of rock. Because it crystallizes at the latest in igneous rocks, it usually lacks a complete crystal face, and is mostly filled with other previously crystallized rock-forming minerals. The composition of quartz is the simplest type of silicon dioxide.



1, no flowers

Quartzite has a quartz content as high as 94%. Quartz crystals are natural minerals second only to diamond in nature, and their surface hardness can reach Mohs hardness of 7.5, which is much larger than that used in the kitchen, such as knife shovels, and will not be scraped. hurt.

2, no pollution

Quartzite is a dense and non-porous composite material manufactured under vacuum conditions. Its quartz surface has excellent corrosion resistance to acid and alkali in the kitchen. Daily use of liquid substances will not penetrate the interior of the quartz stone. The liquid on the surface can be wiped off with a rag just using clean water or a cleaner such as Jie Liang. If necessary, the retentate on the surface can be scraped off with a blade.

3, use old

The bright and shiny surface of quartz stone is processed through more than 30 complicated polishing processes. It will not be scratched by a blade, will not be penetrated by liquid substances and will not cause yellowing and discoloration. Daily cleaning needs only to be rinsed with water. It's simple and easy. Even after a long period of use, its surface is as bright as a newly installed countertop, requiring no maintenance and maintenance.

4, can not burn Natural quartz crystal is a typical refractory material, its melting point is as high as 1300 degrees, and 94% quartz stone made of natural quartz is completely flame-retardant, it will not burn due to contact with high temperature, and it also has high temperature resistance unmatched by artificial stone and other countertops. characteristic.

5, non-toxic radiation The surface of quartz stone is smooth, smooth and no scratches are retained. The dense and non-porous material structure makes bacteria nowhere to hide and can be in direct contact with food, safe and non-toxic. High-quality quartz stone adopts selected natural quartz crystal minerals, its SiO2 content exceeds 99.9%, and it is purified during the manufacturing process. The raw materials do not contain any heavy metal impurities that may cause radiation, 94% quartz crystals and other The resin additives make quartz stone free from the danger of radiation contamination.
