1. Good wear resistance
Quartz mesa is usually composed of more than 90% quartz ore and about 10% resin. Quartz sand provides hardness, resin plays a bonding role and provides toughness. Due to the high hardness and high density of quartz stone, its surface hardness can reach Mohs hardness level 6, which is close to the hardness of diamond and much higher than the sharp tools such as knives and shovels used in the kitchen. Therefore, even if a hard object is used to scrape the table, its table is not easy to be scratched and scratched.
2. Good dirt resistance
Usually, when we use oil salt and other condiments, it is easy to sprinkle it on the table. If the table has poor dirt resistance and easy color penetration, the table may leave traces, which will directly affect the beauty of the whole kitchen. The quartz stone table has excellent dirt resistance and corrosion resistance. It has good corrosion resistance to the acid and alkali substances in the kitchen. It is also convenient to clean and easy to maintain. Food grade antibacterial high-density quartz stone table top has dense surface, no pores, no water absorption and strong stain resistance. Soy sauce and stains do not seep on the table top. In daily cleaning, simply clean the table top with clean water, and the maintenance is super easy!
3. Good fire resistance
The countertop can be said to be the hardest member in the kitchen. It has to withstand the test of hot pot and splashed hot oil and soup every day. Therefore, an excellent kitchen countertop must have good fire performance, which is also an important guarantee for kitchen safety. The quartz table is not only high hardness, but also quite good fire resistance. The basic raw material of quartz stone is mainly quartz sand particles, and the melting point of quartz stone itself is more than 1300 degrees. After adding a small amount of composite materials, its surface still has quite high anti burn ability. What often burns the table top in the family is the hot coke slag falling off from the cigarette butts or the bottom of the pot.
