Artificial marble: the perfect combination of aesthetics and environmental protection


In today's era, people's requirements for decorative materials are getting higher and higher. Although traditional marble natural stone has unique beauty, it also has problems of resource waste and environmental damage. In order to meet people's dual needs for beauty and environmental protection, artificial marble came into being. This article will introduce the characteristics and advantages of artificial marble from the aspects of raw materials, manufacturing processes, and application fields.


Artificial marble: the perfect combination of aesthetics and environmental protection


1. What is artificial marble

Artificial marble, also known as synthetic marble, is a synthetic decorative material whose appearance, texture and functional properties are very similar to natural marble. It is made of raw materials such as high-quality resin and mineral powder, and processed through a specific process.


2. Manufacturing process of artificial marble

1). Raw material selection:


The raw materials of artificial marble mainly include polymer resin, quartz powder and pigments. These ingredients are precisely proportioned to achieve rich colors, textures and textural effects.


2). Forming process:


The manufacturing of simple high density artificial marble is mainly divided into multiple processes such as mining, crushing, screening, mixing, pressing, and drying. Among them, pressing is the most critical link. Through high temperature and high pressure treatment, the mixed materials are firmly combined to form a hard and durable artificial marble plate.


3). Processing and polishing:


The manufactured artificial marble slabs need to go through cutting, grinding, polishing and other processes in order to obtain products of various specifications and smoothness.


3. Advantages of artificial marble

1). Excellent aesthetic effect:


Artificial marble can be processed through multiple processes according to the designer's requirements, showing a variety of colors, textures and textures, and perfectly restoring the beauty of natural marble.


2). Resource conservation and environmental protection:


Compared with natural marble, the manufacturing process of artificial marble does not require a large amount of mining of stone resources, avoiding damage to the natural environment and reducing energy consumption.


3). High durability:


Artificial marble has high hardness and wear resistance, is not easily damaged, and has a long service life. Moreover, its surface can effectively resist the erosion of various chemicals and is not prone to discoloration or yellowing.


4). Convenient construction:


Compared with natural stone, artificial marble is lighter and easier to carry, the construction process is more convenient and quick, time-saving, and no additional sealing treatment is required.

4. Application fields of artificial marble

Artificial marble is widely used in interior decoration fields, such as stone floors, countertops, walls, bars, etc. Its superior performance has made artificial marble widely recognized and used, and has gradually become the mainstream choice for modern architectural design.


In short, as a green and environmentally friendly decorative material, artificial marble not only satisfies people's pursuit of beauty, but also contributes to environmental protection. In the future development, it is believed that artificial marble will continue to develop and innovate, and create a more beautiful and green living environment for people.
