Definition of synthetic stone
Synthetic stone is a kind of green stone, it is made up of more than 95% natural stone powder, with a small amount of polyester and adhesive, mixed in vacuum, pressed and molded by vibration.
Synthetic stone originated from "Kingdom of stone", Italy, English called "compositestone"".
Synthetic stone can be divided into two kinds: synthetic marble and synthetic quartz.
Synthetic stone has the advantages of natural stone can not be compared, such as large area laying without color difference, environmental protection, high strength, complete varieties.
With the understanding of synthetic stone, synthetic stone has been widely used in hotels, shopping malls, office buildings, public places, family walls, ground and so on.
Production process of synthetic stone
1. Collecting stones from quarry
2. Mixed resin, stone powder and other materials under vacuum condition
3, vacuum extrusion into square material
4, placed in the factory for about 10 days
5, cutting into large plates according to requirements
6. Measure and Polish
7, from the plate into the required plate
8, waxing and edge angle processing, packaging
The use of synthetic stone
It is mainly used on the wall, floor, table and stair step of the building decoration.
According to the current use, synthetic stone is used in the following places more:
1, airport, airport ground, part of the wall, corridor, bathroom countertops and walls.
2, the public part of the building, office, such as the hall of the ground, wall, each floor of the corridor, ground wall, bathroom wall, ground, table, elevator shaft.
3, square, shopping malls, these places can be used in a large area, such as wall, ground, toilet, elevator and so on.
4, villas, mainly on the table, in the bathroom can also be common, in addition to stair step.
5, other places, such as public buildings, museums, exhibition centers, hospitals, schools and so on.
Advantages and disadvantages of synthetic stone
According to the synthetic process of synthetic stone, synthetic stone mainly has the following characteristics (mainly for 95% natural marble ingredients, processing technology mature synthetic stone)
1, no color, natural marble to see directly from the mine mining, the slightly processed, mine formation and texture of natural stone marble is composed of the decision, resulting in the inconsistency of many natural stone lines, and synthetic stone is the natural Dali stone crushing, processing and forming therefore, can control the color is very good, this synthetic stone in a certain range can appear no obvious color difference, the advantage is to facilitate the laying of large area, maintain a consistent style on the whole.
2, environmental protection, natural marble according to different ingredients and different characteristics, some deep color containing color substances, and synthetic stone in the selection of natural stone powder can avoid these substances, so as to achieve radiation free environmental standards.
3, close to the natural stone lines, synthetic stone can be very close to the natural texture, color sense, so in some colors, synthetic stone large area laying effect can be comparable with natural stone.
4, excellent performance, good water absorption, structure is more compact than natural stone.
5, no fine crack, dirt resistance, easy to clear
Market prospect of synthetic stone
Because the natural marble belongs to non renewable resources, and due process, that other factors, China's marble mine waste a lot of resources seriously, there has been a lot of crazy mining mine has been razed to the ground, and to maximize the use of natural stone synthetic marble blocks, so the use of synthetic stone to make a future development trend the.
With the increasing maturity of the processing technology, synthetic stone can make very close to the natural stone texture and color sense, the future will be better, and can make some natural stone do not have texture, these color makes people choice is no longer confined to the limited natural stone texture, greatly enrich the designer's design thinking.
In recent years, people pay more and more attention to environmental protection. As widely used in curtain walls, some local governments have advocated the use of light free stones, clay plates and so on. Therefore, the external curtain wall is also a direction of stone.
Present situation of synthetic stone in China
At present, the domestic synthetic stone is basically imported from Italy equipment and technology, in the domestic natural stone and polyester processing, affected by technology and technology and other conditions, most of the current is still to imitate foreign synthetic stone based, low price, product quality varies.
Guangdong manufacturers there are more, but the scale is not very large, there are some domestic markets do well, but due to publicity and other reasons, the market visibility is not too high.
In addition, Taiwan, Rome, Shek Kong, is also the use of this process production.
Foreign synthetic stone
The world famous synthetic stone is mainly Italy, Spain, Portugal, but because the market operation is not the same, most of the domestic market is currently the largest manufacturer of synthetic stone, should belong to Italy Q brand, Quarella, has 5 factories, there are agents in the Chinese there are also other. Some brands such as RMC and so on, but many are made by some domestic companies from foreign manufacturers purchase, do some projects in the country, so there is no what brand promotion, publicity etc..
