The thickness of the quartz stone determines the quality; is this statement accurate?

- Dec 21, 2018 -

Quartz stone sales market today has a wide variety, but the thickness is mostly 15mm, but the thickness is 20mm and 30mm. Many people may mistakenly believe that the thicker the better the quality, the more durable it will be. This is not the case. Generally speaking, thickness is not the only criterion for judging its quality. Because its thickness will vary depending on the scope of use.

What we most often hear is that quartz stone has 90% quartz sand and 7% resin synthesis. What is the remaining 3%? It is actually titanium dioxide, toner, curing agent and accelerator. If the quality of the raw materials is all passed, plus scientific matching, strict production process, product quality can be guaranteed. A corresponding proportion of uncoordinated, inferior raw materials can lead to a decline in the quality of the finished product. The impact of production equipment on quality is also very important. The vacuum value before pressing should reach -99 or above to avoid bubbles on the board. The pressing pressure should not be less than 50 tons, so that the density of the sheet can reach the required value of 2.6 g / m3, and the water absorption of the finished sheet can not exceed 0.02%.

In fact, the thickness of quartz stone is not a criterion for judging quality. Due to the different scope of use, there may be certain requirements for thickness. For example, the cabinet countertop, the countertop can be divided into a pad type and a pad type, and it is best to use a pad type of 15 mm, and a pad type is required to bond a reinforcing rib (back plate) on the ground. Most of the floor use is made of 20mm or 30mm plates, and most of the walls are thin. In fact, there is no good or bad, only suitable and not suitable. The scope of the application is different, so the requirements for the product are different. Warm reminder: Due to the heavier specific gravity of quartz stone, the thickness of the countertop is 20/30mm, and the bearing capacity of the cabinet should be fully considered!
