Artificial quartz stone is composed of more than 90% natural quartz and about 10% pigment, resin and other additives for adjusting adhesion and curing. It is processed by vacuum vacuum, high frequency vibration molding, heating and curing (the temperature is according to the type of curing agent depending on the production method. Its hard texture (Mohr hardness 5-7), compact structure (density 2.5g/cubic centimeter) with other decorative materials can not be compared with the wear, pressure, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, impermeability and other characteristics.
Industry analysts pointed out that man-made marble is usually made from crushed stone of natural marble or granite as filling material, cement, gypsum and unsaturated polyester resin as adhesive, stirred molding, grinding and polishing, so man-made marble has many natural marble characteristics, such as man-made marble because it can be manufactured. Adjustment, so a variety of colors, flexibility is good, convergence treatment is not obvious, the overall feeling is very strong, and colorful, with a ceramic luster, high hardness, easy to damage, corrosion resistance, high temperature, and very easy to clean. But there is also a great drawback, which has significant damage to the human body.
At present, there are four kinds of common artificial marble on the market: cement artificial marble, polyester artificial marble, composite artificial marble and sintered artificial marble.
Artificial stone is the most widely used cabinets, desks and other countertops, a small number of decorative parts, such as the background wall. Because of its high material density, high toughness, if the pollution-resistant items can not meet the requirements, surface stain treatment is not good, it is easy to infiltrate the stain, which is the current market consumers are more concerned about artificial stones. The development of star-rated hotels in China has brought about a great deal of architectural decoration demand. In the next five years, 1200 star-rated hotels will be built in Asia, of which more than 800 are in China. The development prospect of China's public building market is huge. The more mature quartz Market in the world is Australia, the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Germany and other countries. Australia accounted for 35% of the world's quartz consumption a year, followed by the United States accounted for 22%, Canada accounted for 14%. In addition to Europe and the United States and other mature areas of quartz consumption, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea and other regions of the quartz market growth was significant. In the cabinet industry, quartzite is becoming a new substitute product. On the other hand, the foreign quartz stone application scope structure has changed, the proportion of ground decoration has increased significantly, which should be a potential trend.
