As a kind of top-grade building materials, decorative stone is known by few people about its classification and functions. Decorative stones can mainly be classified into natural stone and artificial stone. Normally, the stone in the market are marble, granite, terrazzo and synthetic stone. Among the marble stones, the white marble is of top-grade.Granite is harder than marble. Terrazzo is made from cement, stone granule. etc. Synthetic stone uses gravel of natural stone as its raw material, which is then pressed and polished with adhesive. The last two of the stones mentioned above are artificial stones. Thus they are harder than the natural stone.

Vipo building material Co., Ltd is a national high-tech enterprise combining technology R&D, production, sales, application design, site construction  and after-sale maintenance services of artificial stone and its deep processed products. Products of Vipostone includes artificial marble, quartz stone and  inorganic stone(Terrazzo).

1.       Artificial MarbleSeries

Vipo artificial marble can be classified into exquisite marble, rough aggregate marble and hardened marble. Now Vipohas full-fledged products of five generations, with seventy or eighty color patterns.

The raw materials for artificial marble are aggregate, filler(natural marble and its powder) and binding material(unsaturated polyester resin). Sometimes, in order to enhance its decorative effect, shell, glass or even materials with metallic luster will also be used as raw materials. After the stirring, vacuum pressing, vibration molding and solidifying process, stone block is then incised and polished into decorative artificial stone.

Production process of artificial marble--- Stone block method


 

2.       Quartz StoneSeries

 

Vipo quartz surface uses natural silicasand as its raw material and is produced through the unique platen process. The platen process includes some patent techniques, like automatically material distribution, top-grade pressing system and ultra-pure system.

Artificial quartz consists of more than 90% natural silica sand and quartz powder, and about 10% resin, pigment, and other additives used for binding and solidification. After the process of vacuum-negative pressure, high vibration and moderate solidification, artificial quartz can have the following incomparable features: high resistance of scratch, pressure, heat,corrosion and permeation. Thus artificial quartz is a kind of top-grade material with broad marketprospects.

3.       Inorganic StoneSeries (Terrazzo)

As a kind of top-grade building materials, decorative stone is known by few people about its classification and functions. Decorative stones can mainly be classified into natural stone and artificial stone. Normally, the stone in the market are marble, granite, terrazzo and synthetic stone. Among the marble stones, the white marble is of top-grade.Granite is harder than marble. Terrazzo is made from cement, stone granule. etc. Synthetic stone uses gravel of natural stone as its raw material, which is then pressed and polished with adhesive.

Thus artificial quartz is a kind of top-grade material with broad marketprospects.

Inorganic stone can be called inorganic marble, which is made from inorganic binding materials such as white cement with aggregate and filler. Filler can be natural quartz, granite, feldspar or marble, etc. The production process of inorganic stone is basically the same with that of the artificial stone, which means the stone block method and platen process.

Compared to the traditional artificial stone, inorganic stone solves the problems of outdoor usage (inorganic stone can be used outdoor), cement mortar paving and other technical problems. It’s a kind of green and environmental decorative material with broad development prospects.
