What is the difference between rock slab and ceramic slab?
First of all, it can be judged from the appearance that both rock slabs and ceramic slabs are large-size panels of the recent fire. We can’t tell by looking at the specifications. We have to start with the details. The ceramic slab is directly polished from the ceramic base, so if you look closely from the side, you can see that the brick surface and the base are not integrated, and there is an obvious layering. The rock slab is made of natural stone through a special process and pressed with a press of more than 10,000 tons (more than 15,000 tons). The whole brick is without layering.
Secondly, it can be distinguished by the feel. Different from the smooth surface of the ceramic slab, the surface of the rock slab has a fine graininess. The magic is that it will not feel thorny to the touch, but has a texture.
Finally, it can be distinguished by performance. As a new type of material, rock slab has a Mohs hardness of more than 6 degrees. It does not produce any physical changes (shrinkage, cracks, discoloration), does not emit any gas or odor, and has a strong anti-fouling performance. Impact resistance, so it is often used in the home furnishing industry to make furniture such as bathroom cabinets, dining tables, and coffee tables. Compared with rock slabs, ceramic slabs are a bit inferior in anti-fouling performance and impact resistance, and can not be expected to be used in high humidity spaces such as bathrooms to make artistic ceramic tile background walls with ornamental value.
