What is the difference between the quality of quartz stone countertops

Quartz stone plates are divided into casting and molding plates. The molded plates are better, with dense density and no pores, and casting often has many pores on the back and sometimes on the surface. The color of good quartz stone is very pure, while the color of second quartz stone is turbid. When looking at the big slabs, good quartz stones are uniform in thickness and square in size. There are many quartz stones from small workshops. The thickness of one end of the same board and the other end are 2-3mm. Good quartz stone has enough strength and is not easy to be broken during processing and transportation. Poor quartz stone is very brittle, and it is easy to be slightly bumped and easily broken during processing, transportation and placement.

In fact, the quartz stone market is very messy. I went out and found a lot of brands. Everyone tells about the quartz content of their countertops. In fact, only 4 simple methods are needed to identify the quality of quartz.
What is the difference between the quality of quartz stone countertops
1. The quartz stone with good weight is produced by the press with high pressure, and the quartz stone with poor weight is produced by the heavy press. The plate density is higher, so the quartz stone of the same size will be heavier. The quartz stone content also ranges from 80% to 94%. The higher the quartz content, the better the quality of the quartz stone countertops.

2. The thickness of quartz stone for cabinet countertops is 1.2 cm and 1.5 cm. Because quartz stone has high hardness but is more brittle than artificial stone, it is recommended to use 15 cm thick quartz stone, but many manufacturers actually produce it by rubbing the edge ball. The plate is only 14% or even 13.5%, and the responsible manufacturer will not save this 1%. Therefore, it is recommended not to buy quartz countertops that do not really reach 15%.

3. Hard objects such as keys are scratched with quartz stone. The main component is quartz sand. Quartz sand is also silicon dioxide. The hardness in nature is basically second only to diamonds. If it is a real good quartz stone, there will only be a line after scraping with a key, and it will be less obvious after scrubbing. Quartz stone countertops containing calcium powder and other inferior materials will have marks and white powder after being scratched with a key.

The above differences can only be used for reference, many of which can be distinguished from practical processing.
