Natural stone, with its unique texture and texture, has become the material of choice for many homeowners to create a windowsill slab. However, in the face of a wide range of stone products on the market, how to select a high-quality natural stone windowsill slab?


First of all, you should focus on the variety, texture, and grain of the stone. High-quality stone should have a uniform and delicate texture, without obvious cracks and color spots, to ensure its aesthetics and service life. In addition, clear and smooth texture and uniform color can highlight the unique charm of natural stone, adding elegance to the home.


Secondly, you need to consider the hardness of the stone, wear resistance, and stain resistance. Windowsill slab as an important part of the home, needs to withstand the test of daily life, so the choice of high hardness, and good wear resistance of the stone is particularly important. In addition, good stain resistance can also effectively prevent stains from penetrating the stone, easy to clean and care for!

II. grinding process and precautions

Natural stone sill slab grinding process is crucial, it not only affects the overall aesthetics of the sill plate but also affects its service life and safety. Therefore, when grinding the edge need to pay extra attention to the following points:


1. Select the appropriate grinding equipment

According to the hardness and thickness of the stone, choose the matching edge grinding machine for processing. A high-quality grinding machine can ensure that the grinding effect is flat and smooth, while the poor performance of the equipment may lead to rough edges of the stone, or even broken.


2. Control the depth of the grinding edge

Grinding depth should be moderate, avoid too deep or too shallow. Too deep a grinding edge will lead to thinning of the stone, reducing its load-bearing capacity, but also more prone to cracking phenomenon. While too shallow grinding edge can not achieve the desired smooth effect, affecting the overall aesthetics. In the process of grinding edge, the depth of grinding edge should be checked in time, and adjusted according to the actual situation.


3. Avoid stone breakage

In the process of grinding edge, we should pay attention to avoid excessive impact on the stone, so as not to produce damage or cracks. At the same time, it is also necessary to keep the grinding edge equipment clean to prevent impurities from scratching the surface of the stone.

III. Polishing process and notes

Natural stone sill plate polishing is a crucial step in the process, it can make the stone surface smoother, and brighter, and enhance the overall texture. To achieve the best results, in the polishing process needs to pay attention to the following points:


1. Selection of suitable polishing materials

The type and quality of the polishing material directly affect the final polishing effect. The appropriate polishing material should be selected according to the type and texture of the stone. For example, marble is usually polished with polishing paste or diamond powder, while granite can be polished with diamond grinding pads or polishing powder. In addition, attention should also be paid to the particle size of the polishing material, the finer the particle size, the brighter the polishing effect.


2. Control of polishing strength

Polishing strength is too large or too small will affect the polishing effect. Too large a polishing effort will lead to stone surface damage, scratches, or wave patterns; and too small a polishing effort will lead to stone surface gloss is not. Therefore, according to the hardness of the stone and the surface, appropriate control of polishing strength is in the polishing process. Generally speaking, for the harder stone, you can use a larger polishing intensity; and for the softer stone, you should use a smaller polishing intensity.


3. Keep polishing equipment clean

Polishing equipment in the process of use will produce dust and impurities, if these dust and impurities remain on the surface of the stone, will affect the polishing effect, and even cause the stone surface pollution. Therefore, in the polishing process should be timely cleaning polishing equipment, keep it clean. In addition, there should also be regular maintenance and maintenance of polishing equipment to ensure its normal operation.

IV. Customized processing and installation considerations

1. Accurate measurement of dimensions

Before custom processing, the dimensions of the window sill should be carefully measured, including length, width, and height. Ensure that the dimensions of the sill plate match the actual situation to avoid installation problems caused by size discrepancies.


2. Reasonable gap

Reasonable gap: When installing the sill plate, the gap should be reasonably reserved to cope with the changes in thermal expansion and contraction of the stone. At the same time, the gap's size and location should align with the design requirements to ensure overall aesthetics.


3. Pay attention to installation details 

Pay attention to the installation details: in the installation process, pay attention to the stone fixing method and the choice of connectors. The fixing should be firm and reliable, and the connectors should be beautiful and practical. At the same time, pay attention to the safety of the installation process to avoid accidents.
