As people’s requirements for the quality of life are increasing, natural stone has become the standard for high-end residences.
In view of the scarcity and artistry, we should pay more attention to luxury stone from installation to renovation, and then to daily maintenance than ordinary stone. In summary, the most important thing about the use of luxury stone is to follow the following core principles:
①Try to maintain the original decorative effect of the luxury stone.
②Try to avoid problems such as pollution and disease in the luxury stone.
③ Try to extend the life of the luxury stone.
Therefore, for luxury stone, we recommend that from mining to putting it into use, more details than general stone should be paid attention to in order to meet the above three principles.
1. Avoid external pollution
When mining, we should pay attention to avoid the erosion of external pollutants, such as oil and rust on the processing machinery, and try to avoid them. Avoid oily marks such as those written on general blocks. When the board is processed, transported, stacked, and installed, all kinds of external pollution should be avoided as much as possible.
2, installation link
Regardless of whether the luxury stone is used on the floor or wall, installation is a top priority. The installation is done well to avoid problems in subsequent use.
①Use adhesive instead of cement
The installation of luxury stone, it is recommended to use adhesive instead of cement. Firstly, it can cure the problem of alkali reversion; secondly, the bonding strength of the adhesive is higher than that of cement, which can largely avoid the problem of hollowing. Use cement to bond, it is easy to absorb moisture and return alkali, and the board is easy to fall off, causing hollowing. The empty drum is very harmful to stone.
②Have enough time for health preservation
After the extravagant stone is bonded, you must leave enough time to let the adhesive behind it dry completely. Dryness can avoid problems in subsequent use.
③ Cutting seam repair glue is the core of the core
The seamless processing of luxury stones must be implemented in accordance with the highest standards. It is recommended to choose imported marble glue, transparent glue, high-quality crystal glue, and other glues for seamless processing. But the rubber supplement of luxury stone is very unique. In our opinion, luxury stones generally have gorgeous colors and unpredictable textures. This is different from ordinary plates, and the whole is uniform. How to make up the glue?
Our suggestion is: treat the rubber replenishment of the luxury stone as the most important part, do not hesitate time and cost, and must implement the most perfect effect as the standard.
For example, in the installation of these luxury stones, in addition to the careful splicing in place during installation, the most important thing is to adjust the glue patiently and follow the change of color. Push forward, if necessary, push forward by 1 mm by 1 mm. Until the whole board is patched to the degree of perfection.
This seems exaggerated and time-consuming, but it is a core of the whole project’s effect. What the luxury stone originally wanted was natural texture and color. If the glue is not good enough, it will artificially bring about a sense of visual fragmentation. The decorative effect of the whole board is greatly reduced, and even the natural and magnificent overall feeling is completely lost. With the current processing technology, it is not realistic to cut into a large board of more than ten square meters at a time. Then this sense of integrity must be realized in the hands of our stone care workers.
If this is not possible, we are wasting such precious natural resources.
Walls generally do not need to be protected.
If it is on the ground, those luxury stones with a high degree of jade and crystallinity can not be protected. But luxury stones with a high water absorption rate must be adequately protected. It is recommended to use the highest level of protection standards. For example, you can use a high-quality penetrating protective agent, or a better fluorine protective agent, to protect the luxury stone on the ground. The standard of protective painting is sufficient, uniform, and long enough health time.
Good protective treatment is the best way to prevent stone pollution and pathological changes and prolong service life.
As mentioned earlier, the preciousness of extravagant stone lies in its unparalleled natural beauty. Maintaining its original ecology is the highest principle of luxury stone application.
Therefore, when polishing luxury stones, you should avoid polishing them with traditional crystalline materials such as powders and agents. The reason is that traditional crystalline materials are all used for chemical etching. At the same time, most crystalline materials contain wax or resin components. Acids, waxes, and resins all change the natural color of the stone. And over time, the oxidation of wax and resin turns yellow, which is also a big problem. All this is contrary to maintaining the “original ecology” of luxury stone.
The best polishing method is to use sealing technology. First, the component of the sealing glaze is silica, which itself is extracted from natural stone; second, the silica is a colorless and transparent substance, and the sealing glaze layer formed on the stone is crystal clear and does not change the color of the stone. The best to maintain the original ecological decorative effect of the stone. Some customers once complained that the clarity of the sealing glaze was too high. As a result, the chaotic patterns of the stone appeared, which made the owner dissatisfied. However, such a high definition is one of the great advantages of sealing technology. Used on luxury stones, it is the best match.
Treat extravagant stones with awe
The beauty of a luxury stone is unparalleled; the luxury of luxury stone is bestowed by nature. Every piece of luxury stone has gone through hundreds of millions of years before being produced after thousands of hard work. He came to us with all the hardships to add luster to our living, living, and office environment.
To be small, these luxury stones are all the beloved things that the owners have spent a lot of money on; when it is bigger, the treatment of luxury stones is the wonderful creativity of our stone care workers in the continuation of nature and is creating New artistic value. This is the highest test of our technical level, and this is the supreme reward for our work.
In the face of such a gift of nature, our stone care and maintenance staff must be full of awe and strive for perfection to complete such a wonderful dialogue with nature.
