Why does the well-used quartz stone countertop suddenly break? 

The most widely used cabinet countertop material on the market is quartz stone. It is famous for its wear resistance, heat resistance, corrosion resistance, and high density, and is popular with consumers. But how can material with so many advantages combine to break? Some reasons for the break may even exceed your expectations!

Quartz stone material is a brittle polymer composite artificial stone plate, which has the characteristics of thermal expansion and contraction. At the same time, the quartz stone countertop itself also has a certain stress standard. Although the outside world gives it the reputation of being hard and firm, in fact, the quartz stone countertop is also Not invincible. When there is a high-temperature external object irritation and exceeds the tolerance standard of quartz stone countertops, cracks will inevitably appear. Therefore, even if the quartz stone countertops are highly heat-resistant, it is necessary to avoid directly placing the pots that have just been out of the furnace. Contact with the countertop. Of course, severe external shocks are also the most fundamental reason for the fracture of quartz stone countertops, but apart from these reasons, you cannot ignore the following details that may cause it to fracture.

1. Cracks appear at the joints. If cracks appear at the joints of the quartz stone countertops, there may be operational problems during the countertop installation. The installer may apply glue when the joints of the two countertops are not aligned so that the countertops are not evenly stressed, or the glue applied to the joints is not evenly applied, or even if the glue is applied with too much curing agent. Causes the joints to become brittle and intolerant.

2. Cracks appear in the rear water-retaining position of the quartz stone countertop. If there is a crack in the rear water-retaining position of the quartz stone countertop, the user should check whether the countertop pad is installed properly and whether the glue is in place. Otherwise, the bearing capacity of the countertop will be greatly reduced, increasing the probability of cracking.

3. Cracks appear in the sink and the periphery of the stove. The quartz stone countertops around the sink and the stove are cracks, except for the reason that the edges of the sink and the stove hole are not smooth. The installation did not leave enough clearance for the sink, stove, and the countertop. Once affected by the temperature difference from the outside, the countertop shrinks and receives uneven force, which may cause breakage.

4. The crack appears in the middle of the countertop. If there is a crack in the middle of the quartz stone countertop, it means that the user's daily operation is careless. The direct placement of some high-temperature pots and utensils on the countertop greatly reduces the service life of the countertop. At the same time, it is not ruled out that the cabinet carrying the cracked quartz stone countertop has problems and other reasons.
