Difference Between Solid Surface Sheet and Quartz Stone
Posted by RachelHJM on April 22nd, 2017
Common of Solid Surface Sheet and Quartz Stone:
One, beautiful rich color same as natural stone texture and surface gloss;
Two, environmentally friendly, non-toxic, no radiation, could direct contact with food;
Three, flame retardant, fire resistant;
Difference of Solid Surface Sheet and Quartz Stone:
First, different raw materials:
Solid Surface Sheet is made from ATH, acrylic, high performance resin and natural pigment by vacuum casting;
Quartz stone is composed of about 93% quartz crystal particles, the glue and resin, pigment, antibacterial agent, and then vacuum under high temperature and high pressure.
The Solid Surface Sheet: almost no design constraints, creativity, unlimited performance.
The Quartz Stone higher content of quartz crystal for the main structure, which is harder, density, not easy to do a special shape, plasticity is lower than that of Solid Surface Sheet.
Three, stain resistance, scratch resistance
Solid Surface Sheet: easy to be scratched, should pay attention to maintenance.
Quartz stone is much better abrasion resistance, scratch resistance.
Solid Surface Sheet: after scratched, can be repaired, grinding and polishing, prolong the service life. a long time using time;
Quartz stone: Quartz stone is high hardness, once an exception, it is can’t be repaired as Solid Surface Sheet.
Five, heat resistance
Solid Surface Sheet: heat, high temperature, heating vessels directly do not recommended to be on the Solid Surface Countertop directly, can used heat insulation pad.
Quartz stone: Although Quartz Stone is with good heat resistance, but not recommended put the heat of the vessel directly on the surface for long term, can used in heat insulation pad.
Six, the price of the price quartz stone is much more expensive than Solid Surface Sheet
