Acrylic countertop is based on acrylic (PMMA), with ultrafine aluminum hydroxide as the filler of the table, is a kind of artificial stone countertops. Acrylic is a chemical material, the chemical name is called "PMMA" is a propylene alcohol, commonly known as plexiglass. Acrylic table with a higher hardness, better toughness, can be done bending, and has excellent weather resistance and mechanical mechanical properties, in the case of large temperature does not produce natural cracking.
Acrylic countertops Advantages: Acrylic countertops are made of seamless stitching, even if the problem is easy to repair, and the acrylic countertops also has a convenient maintenance, easy to clean and so on .
Acrylic countertops Disadvantages: Acrylic countertop hardness slightly worse with quartz stone, such as rough objects on the table friction, easy to damage the table brightness. Composite acrylic high temperature to 90 degrees, pure acrylic high temperature of 120 degrees, but not long exposure to overheating objects.
In the domestic market pure acrylic cabinet countertops are generally some imported brands, common are: South Korea's Samsung capacity, the United States DuPont Corian, South Korea LG , etc. These brands of acrylic cabinet countertops is the world's most professional Artificial stone .
The difference between quartz stone and acrylic countertops
1, The price: relative to artificial stone, quartz stone cost higher, but the quality of the price of acrylic countertops and quartz stone countertops quite.
2, Hardness: quartz crystal is the natural hardness of diamond after the natural minerals, the surface hardness can be up to Mohs hardness of 7.5; acrylic table is softer, prone to scratches scratches.
3, High temperature: natural quartz crystal is a typical refractory material, the melting point of up to 1300 degrees above, 90-95% made of natural quartz quartz flame completely flame retardant, will not be due to contact with high temperature caused by burning, but also with artificial stone Such as table can not match the high temperature characteristics. Acrylic countertops should be protected from overheating objects to avoid hot and cold shrinkage and discoloration.
4, Cleaning and maintenance: quartz stone glossy bright surface is a multi-channel complex polishing process, will not be blade shovel, not for liquid material penetration, will not produce yellow and discoloration and other issues, the daily cleaning only Need to rinse with water, easy. Even after a long period of use, the surface is also the same as the new table with the bright, no maintenance and maintenance. However, if the table stained with difficult to remove the stains, quartz stone is more difficult to decontamination, because there is no special equipment is difficult to polish and polished, and the acrylic table with stains can be used to sand paper can be decontaminated.
5, seams: acrylic table can be any length of seamless bonding, with the same material adhesive will be polished after the two, seamless one. Quartz stone countertops how much there will be seams.
If the use of countertops in the use of cracks or cracks, acrylic countertops can repair damaged cracks, do not see traces, but the quartz stone countertops nature such as stones, broken mirror difficult to round.
Currently on the market with acrylic countertops is divided into composite acrylic, pure acrylic and so on. Acrylic acrylic composition in the composite is generally about 20% for the best proportion. The benchtop calcium carbonate has a high composition and is easy to crack.
