Quartz is a very common decorative material used in Western architecture. Quartz stone products are common and popular in everyday applications. So, what are the characteristics and applications of quartz stone? Here is a general summary:
First, the quartz stone is very hard; the quartz stone is made of 94% quartz and 6% resin, the hardness reaches 7 degrees, and the hardness of granite is generally 4-6 degrees, so the quartz stone is very hard and scratch resistant.
Second, quartz stone is a non-radiative product; quartz stone is a natural stone crystal mineral, which belongs to one of inorganic materials. It is purified in the production process to basically eliminate harmful substances, and the surface is smooth, smooth and scratch-free, dense and non-porous material. The structure makes the bacteria have nowhere to hide, can be in direct contact with food, safe and non-toxic;
Third, high temperature resistance; natural high temperature resistant quartz crystal is a typical refractory material, its melting point is up to 1300 degrees or more, 93% quartz stone made of natural quartz is completely flame retardant, will not cause burning due to contact with high temperature, but also has artificial Stone and other countertops can not match the high temperature resistance.
Fourth, quartz stone can be reused; because the inner material of quartz stone is evenly distributed, the front and back sides are basically the same, that is, the surface is severely damaged and received damage, front and back. After simple polishing and polishing, it can achieve the same effect as the original front, which greatly reduces maintenance costs and costs.
Quartz stone application
1. Quartzite has high hardness and low water absorption. It can be used as building materials, especially for outdoor stone, such as paving stones, flooring, cladding and so on.
2, quartzite particles are fine, compact structure, can be used as stone carvings for handicrafts, especially solid color quartz stone.
3, due to the unique crystal structure of quartzite, it presents a colorful and unique color and texture, with special decorative effects.
4, quartzite is widely distributed, easy to mine, easy to process, low cost, is a cost-effective stone products.
5. In addition, quartzite is widely used as an important raw material in the manufacture of glass, ceramics, metallurgy, chemical, machinery, electronics, rubber, plastics, coatings and other industries.
