What is the difference between natural marble, Sintered Stone and quartz stone?
Natural marble, quartz stone and sintered stone are all popular materials.
Natural marble is the object of many building materials competing for imitation. The formation of natural marble is a long process. It is mainly composed of calcite, limestone, serpentine and dolomite.
Its main component is mainly calcium carbonate, which accounts for about 50% or more. There are many components of natural marble, other than magnesium carbonate, calcium oxide, manganese oxide and silicon dioxide.
Marble texture is variable, color variety, wear resistance, plasticity, can be processed into a variety of shapes is a very high quality material.

Quartz stone, as we usually say, is a new type of stone artificially synthesized from more than 90% of quartz crystals plus resin and other trace elements.
It is a large-size slab that is pressed by special machines under certain physical and chemical conditions, and its main material is quartz.
Sintered Stone, on the other hand, is a very popular decorative panel in recent years, which is made by clay, sand and other natural materials through a special process,
pressed with the help of a press of over 10,000 tons, combined with advanced production technology, and fired at a high temperature of over 1200℃, imitating natural marble in texture.

Sintered Stone

①Stain on the surface of the board is not easy to penetrate, easy to clean
②Made at very high temperature, heat resistant
③The surface is hard and durable, not easy to cut, and resistant to wear and tear
④Texture is relatively less dynamic, more dull and not suitable for whole installation
⑤Texture only on the surface, no through body, hardness, later not easy to process, high breakage rate

Quartz stone
① color is still possible, less texture, color difference is obvious
②Hard texture, scratch and corrosion resistance, green and no radiation
③ High anti-fouling performance, clean with water or ordinary detergent
④ Poor heat resistance, avoid direct contact with high temperature objects

①Natural marble is a breathing stone, which can regulate indoor temperature and humidity, warm in winter and cool in summer
②Pure natural unique pattern, rich and diverse color varieties, with high decorative properties
③Hard texture, wear resistance, very long service life, in the case of good maintenance, natural marble can be used for 40~100 years.
④Natural marble is highly plastic and can be processed into various shapes or used for carving
⑤Natural marble has a good touch and gives a sense of warmth
