Quartz stone has now become one of the main countertops of cabinets, but quartz stone has thermal expansion and contraction. Once the plate exceeds the tolerance range, the pressure and external impact caused by external thermal expansion and contraction will cause White-based and Grey-based Cracking of Quartz Kitchen Countertops, so how can we prevent it?
Because quartz stone has thermal expansion and contraction properties, when installing White-based and Grey-based Quartz Kitchen Countertops, you should pay attention to the distance between the countertop and the wall of 2-4mm to ensure that the countertop will not crack in the later stage. At the same time, in order to prevent the table top from deforming or even breaking, the table top should be kept at a maximum distance of less than or equal to 600 mm from the support frame or support plate.
The installation of White-based and Grey-based Quartz Kitchen Countertops is never a regular straight line, so it involves splicing, so the physical properties of the quartz stone need to be considered, otherwise it will cause the splicing seam to crack. The connection position is also very important. In order to avoid connecting at the corner or the furnace mouth, the force of the plate should be fully considered.
What about the corner? At the corners, an arc angle with a radius of 25mm or more should be maintained to avoid cracks at the corners caused by stress concentration during processing. Having said that, let's talk about another opening! The position of the hole should be more than 80mm away from the edge position, and the corner of the hole should be rounded with a radius of more than 25mm to avoid cracking of the hole.
As the kitchen consumes a lot of water, we should try to keep the White-based and Grey-based Quartz Kitchen Countertops dry. Avoid high-temperature pots or objects that directly contact the quartz stone countertops. They can be placed on the stove to cool down or put a layer of heat insulation.
Whether it is before installation or in daily life, we should use White-based and Grey-based Quartz Kitchen Countertops reasonably to avoid any problems and take precautions.
