Quartz stone countertops will explode and change color when exposed to high temperatures. Is it because the material is not good?

 

The proportion of quartz stone in home decoration decorative stone is getting higher and higher, especially the use of cabinet countertops is the most common in home decoration, and the problems exposed thereafter are becoming more and more obvious, such as bursting and partial discoloration.

 

Today, the editor will explain to you the reasons for the cracking and discoloration of the quartz stone countertops.

1. Quartz stone countertops are green and environmentally friendly

 

Quartz stone countertops are composed of more than 90% natural quartz and about 10% pigments, resins and other additives for adjusting bonding and curing.

 

Artificial quartz stone is formed through negative pressure vacuum and high frequency vibration, heated and solidified, its texture is hard, and its structure is compact. It has abrasion resistance (Mohs hardness above 6-7) and pressure resistance (density 2.0g) that other decorative materials can’t match. /Cubic centimeter), high temperature resistance (temperature resistance of 300 ℃), corrosion resistance, anti-permeation does not contain any pollution sources and radiation sources, green and environmentally friendly artificial stone.

2. Avoid direct contact with hot containers

 

Many people here are wondering why quartz stone can withstand temperatures up to 300°, why the direct placement of a hot container on the table will cause it to explode and discolor?

 

It is precisely because of the 10% resin solvent in the raw material of the quartz stone plate mentioned above that the phenomenon of thermal expansion and contraction occurs easily after encountering high temperatures.

 

Due to the sudden local heating (for example, if the expansion joint is not reserved during the installation of the table), it is prone to cracks or discoloration of the mark on the bottom of the container.

 

When buying quartz stone, manufacturers or merchants will prompt: users should avoid direct contact with the hot container on the countertop, and use heat insulation pads.
