Which is better, artificial stone or marble, when choosing a shower tray?

Artificial stone refers to the structure made of natural stone powder and resin and concrete, which has the characteristics of high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and pressure resistance. Marble is an ore with relatively high hardness, but it is generally fragile, and because it contains some trace metal elements, it has certain radiation and is harmful to the human body. Therefore, it is better to use artificial stone at shower tray.


Artificial stone shower tray is hard and has good toughness. The surface is made of polymer material resin as a protective layer. It is wear-resistant and non-absorbent, easy to clean, beautiful and generous, and is especially suitable as a bathroom decoration material. Mainly black and white. When purchasing, pay attention to its structural density, which can be judged by the cross section, and the thickness of the surface protection layer is generally 0.6-0.8MM, and the thickness is uniform.


The marble shower tray is hard but brittle, and has strong adsorption. If the colored liquid is adsorbed on the surface in the bathroom, it will leave traces and stains, which cannot be cleaned thoroughly and affect the appearance. Natural marble is a mixture of elements, of which It may contain trace amounts of radioactive metal elements, so it is best to understand the radioactive control standards and data of various stone materials when choosing stone materials.

In terms of product grade, marble is more grade than artificial stone. After polishing, marble will look very bright and have a natural texture. But from the perspective of the use environment and the characteristics of its own material, artificial stone is more suitable for shower tray stone base than marble.
