Natural Stone PK Artificial Stone

Two major types of natural stone: marble and granite.  In general, where there are texture, known as the "marble"; to point mainly spot, called "Granite."

Both can also be distinguished from the geological concept. Granite is igneous rock, also known as acid crystals Plutonic is the most widely distributed in igneous rocks of a rock, from feldspar, quartz and mica composition rock hard dense. The ingredients to silica and account for about 650 / ~ 75%.

Natural Stone

The so-called underground magma or igneous rock is volcanic eruption of lava rock cooling crystals formed. Igneous rocks in silica content, the nature and content of feldspar determine the nature of stone. When the silica content of greater than 65% belong to acid rock, this rock CKS feldspar, plagioclase, quartz crystals and other basic fossil formed when the grainy structure, called granite.

Marble is the crust, some rocks Jing Guo Zhongyuan high temperature and pressure within the earth, the rocks formed. Internal forces to promote the role of crustal rock types of the original qualitative change, that the original rock structure, construction and mining material composition changes. After the formation of a new qualitative change is called metamorphic rock.

Marble mainly calcite, limestone, dolomite and serpentine composition. The main ingredient in calcium carbonate and account for about 50%. As the marble generally contains impurities and calcium carbonate by carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, carbon, the role of water vapor, but also easy to weathering and erosion, Er Shi surface quickly lose their luster. Relatively soft marble of a general nature, it is relative to the granite purposes.

Because of natural stone are porous, so the relative difference in the stain resistance of some areas, usually in the processing plant will be on the surface for processing. In interior decoration, the TV table, windowsill, indoor surface such as marble for use. The threshold, the cabinet table, suitable for use outdoor ground granite. One cabinet table is best to use dark granite.

Now on the market of natural stone, part of the color is through manual processing, these stones will generally use the six months to a year, revealing its true face. The most obvious is now on the market green large flowers, many of which are made of stain, not the real colors.

Also note that the back of the grid, this situation there are two: ① stone itself is brittle, must add grid, such as Spain beige. ② jerry, the thickness of these stones is thinning, and strength enough, so I added a grid. Generally darker stone grid if the majority is for this reason.

GHG STONE offer a wide series good quality natural stones, such like: Crema Marfil, Dark Emperador, Light Emperador, Rojo Alicante, Black Marquina, Hang Grey (Charly Brown), China Dark Emprador (Chinese Coffee), Hanbai Onyx (Sino Bianco), Guizhou Beige and so on.

Artificial Stone

Artificial stone is unsaturated polyester resin as the binder, together with the natural marble or calcite, dolomite, silica sand, glass powder and other inorganic powder and appropriate amount of smoldering agents, colors, etc., by mixing ingredients, casting, vibration compression, extrusion and other methods of forming curing made.

Artificial stone is based on actual use of natural stone to finding out the problem, and it is moisture-proof, anti-acid, anti-alkali, high temperature, put together have made great progress in terms of. Of course, man-made things are man-made natural disadvantages, the general nature of man-made stone is obviously inadequate, the texture is relatively false, it is used for cabinets and other more practical requirements for the higher places, and some harsh environments, such as kitchens, toilets, etc. ; bay windows, decorative floor and so stressed areas, are used less.

Another factor impeding the use of artificial stone is the human factor. As the man-made stone very different production process, performance, features do not correspond exactly to the advantages mentioned above and must be purchased by your performance of the artificial stone. Imports of man-made stone currently on the market is better in performance. For example, imports of marble allows sanding scratches the surface, the user does not reassert itself to handle it met, and many made of artificial stone obviously can not support this idea, the more polished the more rotten.

Buy artificial stone, it is best to acquire a piece of bad test sample, such as soy sauce or oil down as well as wear test.

Decoration stone which actually buy stone, according to places, use different and personal financial capability.
