First, from the perspective of technology:
Stone is a kind of building material with strong plasticity. It can be processed into plates, lines and columns of any shape. It can also be shaped, embossed, round carved, etc...
In terms of plasticity, only wood can be compared with stone. However, wood and stone are two important architectural materials that have a long history of human use. Because wood products require surface paint and are weak in moisture and corrosion resistance, It is slightly inferior to stone. Marble manufacturer
There are several important differences between tile and marble in decoration:
1, gap and surface treatment:
Is the ground flat like a mirror? How can it be? !
Because the tile looks good on the surface of the glazed surface, the main body of the glazed surface is fired, and it does not have gloss and rich color and natural texture. Therefore, the current treatment of the gap of the tile is to use the beautiful grout. . The essence of the beauty agent is a gelatinous substance that combines various chemical components. As long as it is glue, it will inevitably age. Because of the difference between the thermal expansion and contraction coefficient and the brick body, it will still age and fall off after a long time. When paving tiles for construction and decoration stone, it is normal for the unevenness due to poor specifications and manual errors.

The natural marble is the same, even if it is worn to only a few millimeters, its color, luster and texture are the same as the surface. Therefore, the natural marble can be mirrored after the paving is completed, and the mirror treatment can be processed. The subtle high and low errors generated when installing the paving, after grinding, polishing and crevice treatment, can make the whole ground form a flat and bright mirror! It is called mirror processing. And it can be repeated many times, even after many years of surface scratching or heavy object bumps and small gaps, you can achieve a bright new effect through mirror processing! Marble wall
Tile beauty treatment effect (observed to find that the surface is not flat, this is actually an unavoidable normal error)
Marble mirror treatment (because the marble can be polished and polished, the surface is flat and bright)
2. Shaped processing:
We have just mentioned that stone is a kind of building material with strong plasticity. Through various professional processing, stone can achieve any effect that designers can imagine. The limitation of ceramic tiles lies in the inconsistency between the glazed surface and the embryo body. The cut section has no uniform texture and color. Imported marble building
The edge of the tile stair is two colors and cannot cover the gap of the vertical plate.
Therefore, whether the customer chooses tiles or marble on the floor, the stairs are often made of marble. Others such as door covers, window sleeves and columns are especially marble.
In summary, we have come to the conclusion that due to the limitations of its own characteristics, ceramic tiles cannot be shaped like imported marble to achieve better decorative effects.
Second, from the perspective of environmental protection:
For a long time, due to some unfair competition and vicious propaganda, people have always believed that the radiation of marble is not good for home life. But in fact, stone is an important part of the earth's surface, and we humans live on the surface of stone. Moreover, the whole process of stone mining and processing is cold processing, without high temperature calcination or adding other chemicals. Marble manufacturer
On April 25, 2016, CCTV's financial channel "Consumer Proposition" column, in-depth investigation and research on the rumor of marble radiation, and through the experimental testing of modern equipment, discovered the truth of the facts and reported.
The results of experimental research by domestic marble manufacturers show that the radiation values of the main building materials such as tiles, glass, wood and marble circulating in the market are within the scope of the national health control, but everyone is surprised by the architectural decoration stone. The radiation in the marble is small! The radiation of glass is about 0.3~0.4, the wood is 0.4~0.5, the ceramic tile is about 0.3~0.5, and the radiation of marble is only about 0.01~0.02! Far less than several other building materials!
Third, the paving effect
1. What? Not enough resolution? ! ! !
Beautiful and elegant, the marble is rich in color and rich in texture. A major and growing market share in decorative materials. At present, the hot-selling tiles on the market are precisely “imitation marble tiles”. Can “fake Li Gui” really replace “true Li Wei”? What is the truth about "imitation marble tiles"? The expert did a test like this:
The detection method is this: we have prepared two models, one is called "sapphire" natural marble (blue marble is famous for its preciousness and beauty in nature), and the other is the same named "sapphire" tile. . Then, the two models that look "almost" are respectively fixed on the display board, and the digital camera (simulating human eyes) is used to shoot at four different distance points of 2 meters, 1.5 meters, 1 meter and 0.3 meters. The visual contrast of the shooting effect to determine whether "imitation marble tiles can be a perfect substitute for natural marble in terms of decorative effect."
Comparison results: At a distance of 2 meters, the two products do look "almost".
Contrast results: At a distance of 1.5 meters, "natural marble" presents a richer texture change, while the "imitation marble tile" pattern is also clearer.
Contrast results: At a distance of 1 m, “natural marble” shows a more delicate texture and color change, while the “imitation marble tile” pattern shows a blurry feeling like “low myopia”.
Contrast results: Under the close observation of 0.3 meters, the color and texture of "natural marble" showed a more delicate and rich three-dimensional effect, while the "imitation marble tile" exposed the drawbacks of its "resolution" deficiency, the whole If the pattern is embossed with a mosaic version, the lie of "the natural marble decoration effect" is completely penetrated.
In fact, the truth is very simple. The so-called "imitation marble tiles" actually use the industrial inkjet printing technology (that is, the 3D inkjet printing that the ceramic industry vigorously promotes) to "print" the scanned marble patterns on the surface of the tiles. The resolution of this kind of print has a limit no matter how much high definition, and there is a blurring phenomenon when zoomed in and close to the observation detail. Even the low-end brands that produce some inferior equipment have the drawback of “ghosting”.
The color of natural marble is formed by the coloration of various minerals contained in it. Different minerals appear as different colors, and their varied textures are naturally formed due to different distribution components. Therefore, the beautiful color of marble seen by our eyes is actually not "color", not "printing pigment", but "material"! Of course, it is clear and beautiful, and it can't be blurred if it is magnified many times.
Therefore, "imitation marble tiles" is just "printed matter", just like the simulation of calligraphy and painting can never have the value of famous authentic products, at this point, tiles and natural marble are not comparable!
2. Are you four or eight?
A while ago, I met a sales director in the ceramics industry. I asked a question: "Are you four or eight?" The young man proudly said, "We are all eight!" The people next to me are confused. cloud.
The reason is that imitation marble tiles are essentially printed, and each piece is the same. So it looks very monotonous, the whole is unchanged, and it is dead. Here are a few pictures we can feel:
Perhaps the customer is still not very aware of the disadvantage of the tile, but as a tile manufacturer, it is well known, so some manufacturers have developed a four-piece, eight-piece product, which is different from the four. But the other four and eight pieces are the same again.
Every piece of natural marble is the result of nature. Just as there are two identical leaves in the world, there are no two identical pieces of marble in the world. Therefore, the effect of natural marble paving is flexible, full of natural rhythm and artistic sense. This is the realm that tiles can never be surpassed and reached.
We can come and enjoy the comparison together.
As the saying goes: I am not afraid of not knowing the goods, I am afraid that the goods are better than the goods. From these two sets of photos, all the language is pale. The imitation marble tiles produced by artificial quantification are always just “prints” and “imitations”, but they cannot replace natural marble in many performances and artistic appreciation. The marble effect has an unbeatable beauty!
Fourth, the trend:
The scientific and meticulous analysis and comparison of the above aspects have basically concluded that the decorative stone marble is due to ceramic tiles in terms of aesthetic appeal and process moldability.
Marble tiles are often introduced as new products. New fashion styles appear every other year or two. So there will be such a phenomenon: it took a lot of money to decorate it, and the guests came to see: "Well, very beautiful!", but after two years it has become an old one... two years later Estimated to be the style of elimination! It is for this reason that many ceramic exhibition halls have to be renovated every other year or two.
Marble is a natural product, and a mine produces a stone. Even if it is still a stone for hundreds of years, marble is an eternal classic. Some stone buildings in Europe and America are still shining and standing for hundreds of years! The longer the time, the more flavor!
