2. What is Solid surface made of?

Solid surface is primarily made of natural minerals (over 60%) and resin or polymer binders (over 30%). It also includes colorants, UV absorbers, stabilizers, catalysts, and other additives.

During production, the amounts of colorants can be adjusted to create a wide variety of colors and patterns, catering to different consumer preferences.

3. Pros and Cons of Solid surface

Solid surface is currently one of the most popular types of artificial stone in use. Let’s delve into its strengths and weaknesses below!

3.1 Benefits of Solid surface

  • Strength and scratch resistance: Solid surface is primarily composed of natural stone powder combined with advanced polymer technology, ensuring durability and long-term resistance to wear. This provides peace of mind throughout its use.
  • Environmentally friendly materials: Solid surface is inert and, when burned, only emits CO2, making it completely non-toxic to the environment. Its dense manufacturing structure minimizes voids, offering excellent waterproofing and preventing the intrusion of bacteria and fungi, which promotes user health.
  • Easy cleaning and maintenance: Cleaning and maintaining artificial stone is straightforward. Regular cleaning helps maintain its shine. For everyday stains, a quick wipe with a cloth or mild detergent is sufficient due to its smooth, polished surface that repels dust and bacteria effectively.
  • High aesthetic appeal: Solid surface can be seamlessly installed without visible joints, creating a cohesive look in spaces. Its high flexibility allows for easy shaping and customization, accommodating various design styles and spatial requirements.

  • Prone to scratching: Compared to other types of artificial stone, Solid Surface is more susceptible to scratches from sharp objects.
  • Staining and yellowing: Light-colored shades like white, cream, and beige can develop unsightly stains and yellow discoloration over time, affecting their appearance. Regular cleaning with a suitable solution helps maintain the product’s glossy finish.
