Home decoration is inseparable from artificial stone to make cabinets and bathroom.

Where can artificial stone generally be used... In this article, we will answer these questions.



Introduction of Artificial Stone:


Artificial stone is based on unsaturated polyester resin as the binder, with natural marble or calcite, dolomite, silica sand, glass powder and other inorganic powders, as well as appropriate amount of flame retardants, colors, etc., after the ingredients are mixed, porcelain casting, Vibration compression, extrusion and other methods are molded and solidified.


Compared with natural stone, artificial stone has bright colors, high smoothness, uniform color, compression and wear resistance, good toughness, compact structure, sturdiness and durability, light specific gravity, no water absorption, corrosion resistance and weathering, small color difference, no fading, radioactivity Inferior advantages. It has the advantage of comprehensive utilization of resources, and has a role that cannot be underestimated in environmental protection and energy saving. It is also a veritable green environmental protection product for building materials. It has become the preferred finishing material for modern buildings.


Types of Artificial Stone:


1. Artificial stone is a "polymer material polymer", usually a "polymer solid board" formed by a process of stirring, shallow injection, heating, polymerization, etc., based on unsaturated resin and aluminum hydroxide filler. Generally called: "resin board artificial stone".


2. Artificial stone with "methyl methacrylate" (MMA) as the main material, also known as acrylic solid surface. With DuPont of the United States as the representative, a few domestic professional companies such as Yadir can also produce "acrylic" artificial stone at the same time.


3. MMA, resin mixed artificial stone, known as A-board in Yadir, is the first practical artificial stone to be promoted in the industry between the above two kinds of artificial stone.

Application of Artificial Stone:


1. Countertops: cabinet countertops, bathroom countertops, window sills, dining tables, commercial counters, reception counters, writing desks, computer tables, bar counters, etc.


2. Sink: The sink, washing basin, vegetable sink, etc. are not fragile, easy to maintain, durable, and always bright as new.


Artificial stone combines the natural texture and firm texture of marble, the smoothness and fineness of ceramics and the easy processing of wood. Its application and promotion mark that decorative art has entered a new era of artificial stone and stone from the era of natural stone.



Precautions for the Use of Artificial Stone:

1. Do not place high-temperature objects directly on the table. When placing high-temperature objects, other heat-insulating materials such as brackets with rubber feet, heat insulation pads, etc. should be added under the objects;


2. Do not scald the countertops with boiling water immediately after washing the cabinet countertops with cold water, so as to avoid the artificial marble countertops from bursting due to rapid cooling and heating in a short period of time;


3. Do not drag heavy items directly on the countertop in order to keep the countertop clean and beautiful;


4. Do not use the countertop as a cutting board to directly cut or chop various items; (hint: add a rubber non-slip mat or towel under the cutting board)


5. Do not allow heavy objects or sharp objects to impact the surface of the artificial stone to prevent leaving traces;


6. Avoid contacting the countertop with some organic solvents, such as paint remover, acetone-containing delustering water, pine perfume, etc., which may damage the gloss and smoothness of the countertop and cause stains.


7.  Normal use will be fine. But if the high temperature object comes into direct contact, it will burst easily. Remember!



Advantages and disadvantages of artificial stone


1. The choice is relatively large, the pattern color is relatively rich, and you can match it as you like.


2. Artificial stone has strong functions such as wear resistance, acid resistance, high temperature resistance, impact resistance, compression resistance, and bending resistance.


3. Refurbishment is simple and can be polished and refurbished repeatedly.


4. Strong anti-fouling power, no pores on the surface, and oil stains and water stains are not easy to penetrate into it.


5. It can be seamlessly bonded to any length. The adhesive of the same material will bond the two pieces together and polish them together, and there will be no traces at the joints.

The naturalness is obviously insufficient, and the texture is relatively fake.



At last, artificial stone countertops are divided into grades and prices according to the amount of acrylic materials. Generally speaking, the more acrylic content, the better the quality and the higher the price. It should be pointed out that there is no artificial stone panel claiming pure acrylic material. Common brands are DuPont "Corian" of the United States, "Kuraray" of Japan, LG of South Korea, and Seideshi.
