What is the difference between quartz stone and sintered stone

Stone has a long history in the use of architectural decoration in my country. Because stone was easy to obtain in the early days, and is durable, beautiful, gorgeous and noble, it has been widely used in construction and has been used today. As people's awareness of natural environmental protection continues to increase, and the country's control, it has led to insufficient supply in the stone market. The emergence of artificial stone products has made up for it. At present, the artificial stones of manufacturers on the market include acrylic, quartz stone and sintered stone, etc. The most easily confused are quartz stone and sintered stone.

Quartz stone is also called synthetic stone and reclaimed stone. Because the composition of the filler quartz in the plate is as high as 93%, it is called quartz stone by the quartz stone manufacturer. All the raw materials used in the production of quartz stone are environmentally friendly materials, so quartz stone is also called indoor green environmental protection decorative stone, and the price of quartz stone is higher than other stones.

Sintered stone, also known as engineered stone, is also a kind of artificial stone, and its appearance is very similar to artificial quartz stone. However, the filler of the Sintered stone is natural crushed stone, that is, the stone material is reused, which is used in outdoor project decoration and the price is relatively cheap.

Quartz stone is die-casted from 93% quartz and 7% resin, and its hardness is up to Mohs's hardness level 7, while sintered stone is die-cast from marble powder (gravel) and resin, so the hardness is generally only Mohs. Hardness level 4-6. Quartz stone can be reused. Because the internal material of quartz stone is evenly distributed, it is basically the same regardless of the front and back sides. However, sintered stone cannot be reused because its positive effects are specially made. Once damaged, it can no longer be used. Moreover, each piece of quartz stone is die-casted, and the stone is cut as a whole after die-casting.

Each product has its own value, and their performance will be different, so you should choose according to your application field and requirements.
