Stone is better than the eight advantages of ceramic tiles
Because the natural stone and tile after cutting are very similar in appearance, price, function and so on, many people think that there is no difference between the two. In fact, there are essential differences between product quality and decoration effect. Today we will take a look at the comparative advantages of stone and tile in architectural decoration.
First, the product nature stone is more natural, after cutting and grinding, only the shape or shape changes, and the material itself does not change. Ceramic tiles are made of refractory metal oxides and semi metal oxides. They are formed by grinding, mixing, pressing, glazing and sintering, forming an acid and alkali resistant porcelain or stone material. Its raw materials are mostly made of clay and quartz sand. It belongs to artificial stone produced after chemical change. It is a new substance formed after chemical reaction of sand, stone and mud.
Two, price comparison can buy workers to do paving in the home after purchasing tiles, but natural stones need to be processed before they can be paved on the ground, so many customers think that the price of artificial stone is higher than that of ceramic tiles. In fact, with a beige natural stone from Africa as an example, after processing the price at about 700 yuan per square meter, while a similar color texture of the domestic tile price is around 620 yuan per square meter, so the price is actually little difference.
Three, practical comparison stone has super durability and durability. Since ancient times, it is the most important building and decoration material. The best preserved ancient buildings in the world are mostly stone buildings. Ceramic tile is weak in impact resistance and easy to break. No matter in production, transportation, installation or operation, ceramic tiles are easily broken and consumed greatly, which is determined by the nature of their own materials, and can not be changed.
In addition, the tile is easy to wear, usually after the laying of tiles in the family, using the edge seam wear in about 6 months, 8-12 months will have basic tile surface wear phenomenon in different degrees; public use in general 2-3 months will appear side seam abrasion, 6 in different degrees of wear of ceramic tile. In the aspect of wear resistance, the stone products are also far superior to the ceramic tiles.
Four, the natural color difference of natural stone is relatively obvious compared with natural stone, and the natural color of stone is relatively obvious. Moreover, the surface texture of natural stone is not rich, but the effect of natural stone placement is natural and natural, which is incomparable to tile.
Ceramic tile is made by artificial processing at the later stage, to avoid color difference to a certain extent, but good tile will have chromatic aberration. This is unavoidable. This is mainly due to the restriction of raw materials and production process.
Five, the shape and accuracy of the stone can be compared to different requirements for different shape cutting, ceramic tiles because of the requirements of specifications, the limitations of the shape of the larger. In addition, ceramic tile in production process is due to temperature change or equipment and process limitations, resulting in larger length error on each side.
Six, compared with the thermal expansion coefficient, the stone mostly takes the natural world, the physical and chemical properties are very stable, the thermal expansion coefficient is small, and the deformation and variation of products are seldom seen because of the change of temperature.
The thermal expansion coefficient of ceramic tiles is relatively large, which can easily cause the deformation of the products, especially in winter, it is easy to appear the phenomenon of ceramic tile arch.
Seven, safety comparison: ceramic tile surface treatment technology makes the friction produced during its use very small, so it is very slippery; if ceramic tiles absorb oil and dirty, it will be more slippery. Every year, the elderly and children who have been injured by the slippery tiles are countless, and some are even disabled. Even a young man with a quick hand may sometimes fall down and fall - the tile is too slippery.
In comparison, stone products are not as clean as ceramic tiles, but they are very suitable for living and walking, and there will be no hidden dangers.
Eight, experience in decoration decorative effect, each tiling units and families are deeply appreciate the tiles in the winter cold! So suffering from rheumatism arthritis is also not to mention the original There are plenty of people who, suffering from rheumatoid arthritis of the old people in the cold and long winter how difficult guao.
