Quartz stone countertop processing and installation considerations


    Quartz stone countertop processing and installation considerations


    It is estimated that everyone is not unfamiliar with quartz stone. It is an ideal countertop material. The processing and installation of quartz stone countertops is a technical activity. If quartz stone is not properly installed, it will not only affect the appearance of the cabinet countertops, but will also directly affect the overall quality and service life of the cabinets. What are the precautions for processing quartz stone countertops? Quartz countertop installation attention quartz quartz countertop processing precautions? The following article will share with you on these issues and look forward to helping friends in need.



    Nowadays, quartz stone has become a commonly used material for countertops. In order to ensure the quality of countertops, we need to process and design quartz stones before installation. The following points must be noted:



    1、Quartz stone is generally installed by splicing. Everybody chooses the splicing position to avoid the corners and the mouth of the furnace as much as possible. This is because the quartz stone has the characteristics of thermal expansion and contraction, if it is close to the fire or corner, Cracking may occur.



    2. When designing the tabletop corners, we should fully consider the stress concentration and cause cracks at the corners of the tabletops. Therefore, we must maintain an arc angle of 2.5cm or more at all corners during processing.



    3. When designing the opening position of the cooktop, the position of the opening of the countertop shall be greater than or equal to 8 cm from the edge of the tabletop to prevent cracking of the face of the table. When opening the entrance of the stove, first open the hole with a cutting machine or a jig saw, and then Trimming with edger or hand-grinding machine to achieve a smooth effect. The radius of the four corners is basically uniform. As the sawing and cutting machine cut holes, the saw-toothed edges of the cut hole are printed to the extent that they have cracks. It is easy to cause openings. Cracking at the place.



    4. The corners at the opening shall be rounded with a radius of 2.5 cm or more, and the four corners must be reinforced with a homogenous sheet plate. There must be a certain space between the cooktop and the tabletop, and the space distance is 0.4-0.6 cm. Put insulation cloth and tin-platinum paper as insulation protection measures around the hole.



    5. When designing a countertop, consideration shall be given to the restrictions on the dimensions of the countertops by the passages of stairs, elevators, doors, etc. The on-site joints shall comply with the aforementioned requirements for joints.


  

    After everything is ready, you can proceed to install the quartz stone installation. Quartz stone installation quality is directly related to the aesthetic appearance and service life of the table top, so it cannot be ignored. Here we come together to understand the following quartz stone countertop installation considerations:



    1. Prior to installation, it is necessary to check the flatness of the cabinet and check whether the quartz stone countertop size exactly matches the cabinet. If an error occurs, quartz stone countertops need to be reworked or the cabinets trimmed.



     2. When measuring the depth of the cabinet body, the table top needs to reserve a size of 4cm to facilitate the installation of the lower hanging edge strip.



    3. When splicing some long countertops (such as L-type countertops), in order to ensure the flatness of the spliced countertops and the tightness of the joints, it is recommended to use a strong fixing clip (A clip, F clip) to fix the quartz stone sheet. In addition, when bonding the hanging bar, it is also necessary to use a strong fixing clip to ensure that the table top is spliced and the gap between the table top and the bottom bar is perfectly combined.



    4. There should be a certain distance between the quartz stone countertop and the wall (usually 3mm to 5mm). After the installation is completed, the glass glue should be evenly put on the gap between the countertop and the wall.



    5. In the installation of countertops, try to avoid the large-scale cutting and opening of quartz stones at the construction site. On the one hand, it is to prevent cutting dust from contaminating the construction site; on the other hand, it is to prevent the cutting from inaccurate errors.



    6. Due to the high hardness and density of quartz stone countertops, the processing technology requires a higher level. Therefore, quartz stone countertop installation should contact the professional quartz stone installation master, and use professional tools to install, must not be blindly installed, so as not to cause.
