What is a quartz stone countertop?
First of all, the quartz stone countertop is artificial. Its production process is to crush the natural quartz sand and then purify it (the process eliminates metal impurities and avoids radioactivity in the product).
After the raw materials are mixed, the quartz stone crystals (90%-94%), the resin (6%) and the trace pigments are made into large-sized slab by isomeric polymerization under vacuum conditions, and then the surface is polished by more than 30 steps.
The quartz stone Mohs hardness reaches 7.5 degrees (3 degrees of marble, 6.5 degrees of granite), and it can prevent scratches such as irons to some extent.
Not easy to penetrate, resistant to sexless
The surface is dense and non-porous, and the water absorption rate is only 0.02%. Generally, the acid and alkali substances such as coffee, oil, and sauce can not penetrate.
No radiation, no toxicity
Quartz stone is a natural stone crystal mineral, which belongs to one of inorganic materials. It is purified in the production process to eliminate harmful substances. The dense and non-porous material structure makes the bacteria have nowhere to hide, so it is safe and non-toxic.
