Quartz Countertops Operation Standard

Last update: Jun 29, 2018

Quality is not only an internal commitment at Historycountertops, it is a key service we provide to our precious partners.

But How?

In the previous article we mentioned how to produce Engineered Quartz Stone.

As below Historystone Quartz countertop production standard for your reference.

 
Basic principles for kitchen and bathroom used quartz countertops processing:

1: To avoid overheating, quartz slab are cut, drilled and polished using a water-cooled tool.
 
2: Cut the inner corners into right angles by cross cutting is forbidden, this will cause pressure to gather at a point, causing the countertop to crack.
 
3: Use large diameter drills to cut inside corners, cutting connects each hole and keep the arc of the hole, waterless cutting, drilling and grinding is forbidden, because overheating can cause cracks.

4: Use water and alcohol to clean the bonding area before bonding.
 
5: Split joint using the same batch of slabs.

Specific Process:

1: Check Before Using

A) Check the surface, back and color of the board before using.
1: The quartz surface inspection: Surface gloss needs to be consistent, no cracks, wear marks, impurities, pores, scars, uneven quality problems.
2: Flatness check: Flat surface, no deformation and warping.
3: Thickness: Slabs thickness deviation is plus or minus 1mm.

B) Back inspection:
1: Flat back side, no rough and uneven in surface.
2: No serious paper, repair marks, cracks on the surface

C) Slab color matching inspection
1: The surface, grain and texture are evenly distributed, no stain, No obvious color difference.
2: Split joint using the same batch

2: Connection Section

Note:  In order to reduce the risk of quartz slab cracking, get the best processing results.

A: The connection of the two quartz slab avoids the top of the dishwasher or oven.
B: U-shaped kitchen table splicing position selected in the corner.
C: The L-shaped table should be composed of two rectangular countertops, cannot be processed into onebody. L-shaped integral table will break due to heat from the cold, or Broken due to mechanical stress when installing the cabinet.

3: Grooving:

If the distance between the grooving site and the splicing of the table top is less than 150mm, the area needs to be reinforced and supported.

4: Polishing:

Water cooling tools must be used for polishing, Otherwise it will lead to local overheating and making the slab easy to break.

5: Corner:

For the quartz countertops, it is recommended to use 2mm wide bevels with a 45° angle or rounded corners with a 3-4mm radius.

6: Front Bonding A) 45° Mitre:
The side splicing part of the slab is cut into 45° angles, keeping the smoothness of the two bonding surfaces, so that the splicing is firm. and This helps the joint to be firm, without the risk of collapse.

B) 2cm and 2 cm with laminate edge:
Use a stone slate with the same length as the countertop. Use 45°mitre at corners for your quartz countertops.



Conclusion:

That’s all for today’s sharing.
