How to Improve the Surface Gloss of Quartz Stone?
1. How to improve the gloss of quartz stone?
There are many small scratches on the quartz stone surface, causing diffuse reflection of light. The visual effect is the reduction of gloss. The gloss of quartz stone is reflected by the reflection of light. If the quartz stone surface is flat and dense, the reflected light is uniform and the gloss is high; on the contrary, if the quartz stone has many scratches, the surface is uneven and the texture looseness will cause diffuse reflection of light and the gloss will be low. Whether it is newly renovated quartz stone or quartz stone refurbished after use, with normal use and the passage of time, the wear of quartz stone will become more and more serious and its gloss will become lower and lower. So how should we maintain quartz stone with low gloss?
If effective and timely maintenance is adopted, the gloss will be maintained for a long time. If only the maintenance of daily cleaning is given, the external erosion of the quartz stone and the internal changes of the quartz stone will make the surface characteristics of the quartz stone worse and worse.
The correct maintenance method is to use the maintenance process in a timely and effective manner before the quartz stone gloss has not decreased or the decline has not exceeded the recovery capacity of the maintenance measures. For a long time, it is in the state of using ideal visual effects.
2. How to detect the gloss of quartz stone?
The gloss of the stone is measured with a marble gloss meter. The measuring principle is: Under the specified stone geometric conditions, the ratio of the reflected light flux of the stone sample specular gloss to the reflected light flux of the standard black glass under the same conditions is multiplied by 100.
Nowadays, if you want to accurately measure the "quartz gloss", you must use professional test equipment. For example, Linshang LS192 marble gloss meter. The marble gloss meter has many measurement angles and the 60-degree measurement angle is the most common. During measurement, simply place the instrument on the quartz stone surface. The light source and the receiver can be passed through the opening angle condition. The reflected light flux of the quartz stone in the mirror reflection direction is in line with the glass standard. The ratio of the reflected light flux in the mirror reflection direction is converted into data by electronic calculation and displayed on the liquid crystal display of the instrument.
In order to help users to carry out testing more conveniently and efficiently, the Linshang LS192 marble gloss meter is specially equipped with statistical functions. It can display the maximum value, minimum value, average value and standard deviation value of the test. Users can use this feature to quickly analyze the uniformity of the quartz stone surface gloss in a short time and obtain accurate data .
We can use 5 pieces of polished surface plates with a size of 300 * 300mm. If the gloss of the actual stone to be installed is detected, 5 pieces can be randomly selected from the finished product to be installed as the sample. The average of the glossiness of 5 samples are the glossiness of the board.
This glossiness measurement is mainly suitable for granite, marble, terrazzo and artificial stone plates.
