Phu Tai Quartz with outstanding advantages

To bring the most complete living experience, Phu Tai Quartz is constantly researching to create stone products possessing many outstanding advantages, ensuring Quality, Aesthetics, and High Applicability. Advantages of quartz-based artificial stone: 1. Diversity of colors and designs Thanks to the variety of designs inspired by nature, Artificial Quartz Stone from Phu Tai Quartz not only possesses many designs from monochrome to multi-color, even metallic luster and vein color, but It also has high applicability, meeting the aesthetic needs of many types of buildings and housing projects. 2. Effective anti-scratch, anti-abrasion Phu Tai Quartz is made from natural quartz with a rate of about 90% of aggregates, of which quartz is a mineral with high hardness only lower than diamond, according to the Mohs scale of 7/10. That makes them high hardness and scratch-resistant, the surface is always shiny and the color stays like new year after year. 3. Waterproof Thanks to the tight texture of quartz crystals and polymer chains, artificial quartz stone possesses almost absolute water resistance. If natural stone is only moisture resistant in some types, artificial stone is completely different: no dust, easy to clean. 4. Chemical resistance Quartz-based artificial stone has the perfect structure to resist corrosive substances used by people in daily life such as detergents, acids from fruits, suitable for all living spaces. 5. Perfect bearing Artificial quartz stone is the perfect choice if homeowners need to use it in places with lots of impact by external forces because quartz stone has higher hardness, better bearing capacity compares to other natural stones. 6. Enduring in the harsh weather The expansion or contraction is measured by standards that show quartz-based artificial stone withstands extreme weather, specifically high and low temperatures, both create very little changes in appearance and do not affect the beauty of space during use. 7. Anti-Bacterial  The quartz-based artificial stone at Phu Tai Quartz is certified to meet quality standards and strictly adheres to the criteria for composition, ensuring that bacteria and mold cannot exist on the surface, creating a reliable, safe for the environment and users including children. 8. Easy maintenance  Unlike natural stone that has many cracks and holes on its surface, quartz-based artificial stone is managed to minimize the problems mentioned above. This makes stone properties superior to natural stone lines, easy to clean without polishing or periodic maintenance.

Phu Tai Quartz maintenance guidelines for maintaining the beauty of artificial quartzs

Phu Tai Quartz always favors and recreates natural beauty in its designs, thereby preserving pure beauty over the years thanks to its outstanding advantages in durability and features such as waterproofing, anti-wear, anti-fouling, and good heat resistance. However, with great care, anything will become more refined, and so will products from Phu Tai Quartz. To keep the products in your space as functional and attractive as they were on day one, make sure you follow these simple guidelines: Clean regularly Featuring easy maintenance and no need for re-coating, to clean the surface of man-made quartz stone simply wipe the surface with a cloth and warm water, or with diluted soap. During the time of using and living, inevitably, stains from fruits, colored beverages, alcohol, and ink are often scattered on the surface of the product. In this case, you should use a damp cotton cloth to wipe away the stains as quickly as possible. If the stain has stayed on the surface for quite a long time, or the stains have dried, you should use a mild detergent mixed with warm water to clean. It is also recommended that surfaces be cleaned regularly to avoid dust and to keep the space in which they are applied. Avoid applying force and sharp objects The bearing capacity and scratch-resistance of artificial quartz stone from Phu Tai Quartz are greater than that of other common natural stones, however, users should not abuse the use of sharp objects such as knives, scissors that directly affect the product or exert too much force on the product such as placing too heavy objects, sitting or standing on the surface. The edges and edges of the product are also weak bearing positions, so it is necessary to avoid applying force to these areas. Warning of temperature All stone surfaces, from nature to Phu Tai Quartz, can be damaged by sudden and excessive heat changes, especially near rock edges, including direct heat as well as a hot object continuously for a while on the surface. Try using mats or holders under hot pots, pans, grills, electric fryers, hobs, and ovens…. before putting them on. Avoid direct sunlight Phu Tai Quartz also recommends that you should not place the product under sunlight directly for a long time. This can cause discoloration and warping of the product. Limit exposure to harsh chemicals Despite its chemical resistance, there are corrosive chemicals that can damage any surface, including Phu Tai Quartz. To ensure an extended product life through the years, try not to expose the stone surface to alkalis, strong acids, oxidizing agents, other similar chemicals, or cleaning agents. In addition, do not use any sealants, penetrants, or self-repair as this will cause the surface of the product to lose its original appearance. Instead, contact us to receive the most appropriate and timely support.

Natural stone vs. Quartz-based artificial stone from Phu Tai Quartz

Marble and Granite Marble is considered as a metamorphic rock from limestone, with a non-schist structure. Its main component is calcite (a crystallized form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3). Granite is also a natural stone formed by the metamorphism of limestone, carbonate, or dolomite rocks. The process of metamorphosis and recrystallization of these sedimentary rocks is the cause of the formation of interlaced rock crystal veins, creating delicate natural beauty. However, with their porous, soft, and absorbent properties, these 2 natural stones can not only absorb moisture from raw food or leftovers, harbor harmful bacteria but also make it difficult to construct sections. Construction costs for natural stone will be expensive because it is easy to crack and difficult to find replacement products. There are also certain requirements such as if not treated carefully, in the long run, The surface will absorb water, stick to dirt, and change the original color, losing its pure beauty. Phu Tai Quartz Quartz-based artificial stone from Phu Tai Quartz was born as a perfect solution to solve all the limitations of natural stones. Thanks to the creation of a combination of natural stone minerals and Polyester glue, so they have better quality and display more advantages such as high hardness, resistance to impacts from the external conditions, therefore, the product is often favored and widely applied in areas that are frequently impacted such as kitchen tables, stairs, countertops... Kudos to the combination of synthetic materials, additives, and colorants, quartz-based artificial stone not only possesses outstanding benefits in terms of durability, bearing capacity, waterproofing, dirt resistance, and ease of maintenance but also carry a variety of colors, considered the most stylish and design options of all materials today, from monochrome to multicolor, grained, metallic and stone patterns. This is also a plus of artificial stone compared to natural stone.
