What is the material of rock slab?


It is understood that the rock slab is made of natural stone and inorganic clay by special process, adopting vacuum extrusion molding and automatic closed computer controlled temperature roller kiln firing 1300 degrees. It is the thinnest (only 3mm) at present and the largest specification (3600 × 1200mm) at present.


 The English name of slate is "sintered stone", which translates into "sintered dense stone". However, there is still a great controversy on what is rock slab. There are roughly two definitions of rock plate in the industry: first, some people think that rock plate mainly comes from imported brands, and some people think that rock plate is an independent operation enterprise of a single category, which will clearly distinguish rock plate and ceramic tile; second, some people think that rock plate mainly comes from domestic ceramic enterprises, and they think that rock plate is actually a kind of ceramic plate, or a kind of ceramic plate.


 Compared with traditional building materials, it is a new type of material. As a bathroom or kitchen countertop, background wall and so on, rock board has many advantages, such as: antifouling, heat resistance, scratch resistance, durability, UV light resistance, surface does not need secondary treatment and so on. One disadvantage is that the rock plate is different from the stone and other mesa materials, and does not have the characteristics of general pattern. At present, the pattern of rock plate is basically printed on the surface.
