2) What is Artificial Marble?

Artificial marble is a type of stone produced by humans based on the characteristics and mechanism of natural stone formation. The main raw material is stone powder, combined with synthetic materials, liquid polymer, acrylic glue, additives and colorants, etc., through a chemical reaction process and then pressed into blocks to create stone slabs in colors with different veins.

Less porous, water-proof, hygroscopic, dust-proof

5)Heat resistance

Containing acrylic glue and polymer, so when exposed to high temperatures, it is easy to deform and damage the surface

6) Surface

Waterproof treatment, covering, polishing the surface to keep its durability for a long time

The gloss is not long, easy to discolor. Resistant to strong impacts and difficult to scratch, but when scratched, it is easy to see and expensive to replace
