The raw materials of quartz slabs are more than 90% quartz sand and 7% resin and other adhesives by vacuum, high pressure, and furnace curing. So, the higher the resin amount, the lower the hardness of quartz slabs, It’s also more prone to deformation and less scratch resistant.

If you want to reduce the likelihood of deformation, you need to reduce the amount of resin and increase the proportion of quartz sand, when forming, increase the pressure appropriately to improve the tightness, which is related to the production of quartz stone manufacturers.

The second factor is the loopholes left in the process of installation, and if there is no pad plate or pad strip when connecting with the cabinet, consequently there will be the possibility of deformation and warping.

How to distinguish whether quartz slabs will not be deformed?

The three easiest methods can be divided into smelling, scratching, and looking.

If there’s a lot of resin it’s going to take a little bit longer to smell, it will also lead to lower hardness of the slab itself。

A deep mark can easily be made with a key。

At the time of installation, see if the processor has added pad strips at the bottom of the countertop.

If you don’t notice any of these problems, congratulations, your countertop won’t have any problems for 10 years!
