No matter artificial stone or quartz stone, there is no difference between good and bad. The composition is different, and there is also a big difference in functions and characteristics. Therefore, when purchasing kitchen countertops, you should clearly know which characteristics you value, and choose the right ones according to your own preferences.
In recent years, artificial stone has been widely used in home decoration, especially on the countertop of the kitchen, and has become the mainstream countertop material in the current market. Quartz stone, as a new decoration building material, is also widely used in home decoration and is being recognized and accepted by more and more consumers. So, who is stronger between artificial stone and quartz stone?
People are used to calling pure, composite acrylic, pure aluminum powder board, and calcium powder board artificial stone. The best artificial stone is a pure acrylic, followed by composite acrylic. It is better to use composite acrylic or above materials for home decoration to ensure that they are not easy to penetrate, deform and crack. Artificial stone processing has a beautiful shape, mainly including arc back water retaining, absolute seamless joint, and special-shaped processing. At the same time, it has good toughness, and pure acrylic is the best. Artificial stone is easy to repair when it has problems. After a long time of use, it can be polished again to be as bright as new. However, the hardness of the artificial stone is slightly worse than that of quartz stone. For example, if rough objects are rubbed on the table surface, the brightness of the table surface is easy to be damaged. At the same time, the temperature resistance is not as good as that of quartz stone.
Quartz stone also belongs to artificial stone, which is made by equipment. Quartz stone is mainly made of natural quartz and mixed with saturated resin, mineral pigment, composite agents, and additives. The hardness, wear resistance, and heat resistance of quartz stone are better than those of artificial stone, but neither quartz stone nor artificial stone can directly put the hot pot on the table. Although quartz stone is superior to artificial stone in the above aspects, due to its high hardness and density, it cannot be seamlessly spliced. Complex modeling is not easy to do, so the modeling is single, and it is not easy to repair when there is a collision problem. Therefore, the choice of kitchen countertop materials depends on personal preference for application needs.
