Cabinet countertops with high environmental protection factor PK, artificial stone and stainless steel both win first prizes

- 2021-09-10-

The cabinet structure that has the closest contact with our imported food is the countertop. The durability and antibacterial properties of countertops directly affect our daily kitchen life, and more and more consumers are beginning to pay attention to the environmental protection and hygiene issues of countertops. So, what kind of countertop is more environmentally friendly? Let's compare them carefully.

Natural marble natural texture but crack defects


Prone to cracking. Natural marble has a variety of beautiful textures, but its natural micro-cracks will appear after a long time of use.


It is difficult to wipe the cracks during daily cleaning. It is inevitable that some residues will be permanently filled into the cracks with the wiping of the rag and become a breeding ground for bacteria.


Non-ignorable radiation Natural stone will have a certain degree of radiation, which may cause harm to human health.

Granite Natural material with good antibacterial properties


High density weakens the hidden worry of hiding dirt. As a traditional cabinet countertop material, granite has high density, high hardness, and wear-resistant surface, which reduces the possibility of hiding dirt to a certain extent.


A good antibacterial performance test proved that among all the materials that can be used for kitchen countertops, granite has better anti-bacterial regeneration ability.


Limitations of natural materials The length of natural stone is usually not long, so if you want to make a full-length overall countertop, there must be seams, and these seams are also easy to hide dirt.


If you like natural materials very much, granite with strong antibacterial ability is an ideal choice, but you must pay special attention to the level of joints of the construction workers.

Environmental protection index ★★★


Stainless steel has the best antibacterial properties


Good antibacterial performance test shows that stainless steel ranks first in anti-bacterial regeneration ability among all materials currently available for kitchen countertops.


The easy-to-injury appearance of the stainless steel countertop is avant-garde, and it is shiny and not dirty. However, once the countertop is scratched by a sharp tool, it will leave unrecoverable marks. These fine scratches can easily hide dirty things. You must pay special attention to the surface of it.

Fireproof board The section joint is not well bridged


Mostly low-priced MDF The materials used in the manufacture of fireproof boards in China are mostly low-priced MDF, which cannot provide effective guarantees in terms of performance and environmental protection.


Seamless splicing is difficult. Fire board has the same length limitation as natural stone, and it is difficult to join the cross section. No matter whether it is glued with silica gel or caulked with metal strips, it is impossible to achieve a perfect seamless splicing. These gaps are naturally a "hotbed" of bacterial contamination.

Environmental protection index★★



Artificial stone economical and environmentally friendly countertop


The texture and color of the artificial stone with a sense of stone material but non-radiation is rich, which can be compared with stone, but it has no radiation and is easier to clean. It is an ideal substitute for natural marble.


True seamless splicing utilizes unique bonding and polishing technology, artificial stone countertops can be seamlessly spliced, and there is no place for dirt and bacteria.
