About KalingaStone – Helpful Information

One of the most popular hard surface materials used in homes all over is engineered quartz. One of the brands of quartz available to consumers is KalingaStone. Many consumers desire quartz materials such as KalingaStone. In fact, homeowners continually select them as their hard surface material. In this post, we will consider some basic information about KalingaStone, including what it is, fabricating it, and how to care for it.

What Quartz Is Made Of

Engineered quartz is a combination of raw materials, polymer resins and coloring pigments mixed together into a composite material. A michine then heats this composite and forms a slab. The mixture varies in percentage by weight for each of the above ingredients. The ranges generally used by the companies that produce engineered quartz are:

  • +90% Crushed Raw Quartz and Other Raw Materials
  • -10% Polymer Resins for Binding and Coloring Pigments

To make quartz slabs, manufacturers blend raw materials into a composite substance by means of special mixers. A solid sheet (or slab) is formed by molding and heating this composite at high temperatures. These slabs become hard surfaces. The resulting “slab” though, has properties that differ from natural stone.

As mentioned, most of the engineered quartz falls within those parameters, but KalingaStone might have a mix that varies from that guideline. The best way to determine the exact mix for KalingaStone is to check out the information on the website for KalingaStone. And keep in mind, companies are constantly adjusting their recipes and protocols to tune the product.

Quartz Popularity & KalingaStone

There are many reasons that people choose quartz to be the material for their surfaces. Quartz is the material of kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, and even shower walls. In fact, many online resources make mention of the benefits and/or reasons that quartz (including KalingaStone) is an appealing choice.

In fact, engineered quartz offers some very desirable features. Notice the following quote from hgtv.com

One of the main reasons quartz has exploded in popularity is due to appearance. Quartz has the look of stone while also allowing homeowners to customize the design. While granite offers many options in terms of appearance, you may have to search for the right piece that matches your color scheme. With quartz, the selection process is much easier.

Quartz in general is really a desirable material and that helps KalingaStone as well. In general, the engineered quartz industry has a variety of benefits that get focused on. However, representative and manufacturers usually highlight specific focus points. For example, notice the point that KalingaStone highlights in its material. On the website KalingaStone

Aesthetically pleasing with reliable technical characteristics such as flexural strength, high resistance and durability,Kalingastone Quartz is the best choice to create unique interiors.

Properties of Engineered Quartz

As we mentioned, professional produce quartz surfaces following similar processes. The nuances of the process varies, but that doesn’t mean that all are necessarily created equal. There are different grades of quartz just as there are various grades of natural stone. KalingaStone and even other engineered quartz materials though, will promote the following appealing traits:

  • Non-porosity
  • Stain Resistance
  • Resistant to Scratching
  • Easy to Clean

Like other engineered quartz surfaces, KalingaStone no doubt offers variations of the benefits listed above. Additionally, the maintenance and care procedures for KalingaStone will be much the same as the other brands of engineered quartz. We will cover some of those care and maintenance practices shortly, be first, let’s take a look at the color selection.

KalingaStone Color Selection

The colors in which KalingaStone is available is another reason for its success. After all, if a company offers a product and the color palette is not chosen carefully, it could mean another trip to the drawing board to create more colors needed by the consumer.

Fabricating KalingaStone Surfaces

Fabricating KalingaStone brings with it some of the challenges that are common to the quartz material. There are some key things that fabrication professionals need to be aware of if they choose to begin working with KalingaStone – or another brand of quartz for that matter.

Dust Collection Equipment for KalingaStone Fabrication

Nearly all hard surface materials used in construction projects contain at least some silica. Cutting, shaping, or polishing this material creates dust. Those dust particles contain silica that can be dangerous if inhaled. So, when working with KalingaStone, it is recommended that quartz fabrication dust collection equipment be used. Having the proper dust collection equipment can keep your working environment as free of respirable silica as possible.

KalingaStone Fabrication Water Treatment

Even after the quartz dust is removed, it could still be a potential hazard. For example, some KalingaStone fabricators are running wet tools that produce a slurry. This slurry is produced when water traps the particles that would become air particulates. The slurry is then processed using a quartz water treatment plant to separate the particles from the water. Then, the water is sent back to the shop where it can be used again to fabricate more KalingaStone surfaces.

Proper Tools for KalingaStone Fabrication

When working with engineered stone, many of the tools are the same as they would be for cutting or fabricating natural stone. However, there are specific variations of these tools for use on quartz. Let’s look at just a couple of examples.

First, let’s look at diamond polishing pads. When working with KalingaStone, just like other quartz, you need to be aware of the need to keep the material from getting too hot. Excess heat during the polishing process can turn the material a different color. By using either wet polishing pads or polishing pads designed for quartz, you will likely get the best results when polishing KalingaStone.

Another thing to keep in mind is that not all materials have the same hardness. Because KalingaStone is among the harder materials (quartz is very hard), it requires a diamond bridge saw blade for cutting quartz.

Of course, there are other best practices to follow when fabricating KalingaStone but they are too numerous to mention here. The thing to take away form this post regarding KalingaStone fabrication is that there are specific practices and tooling to consider. There is also some equipment that can be used for both natural stone and KalingaStone

How to Care for KalingaStone

Caring for KalingaStone is likewise a matter for consideration. Maintenance and cleaning processes are fairly standard for virtually all kinds of quartz, including KalingaStone. So what is involved?

Although, KalingaStone does not require sealing after installation, there are occasions that can cause it to need to be sealed. There are quartz sealers that exist for treating materials like KalingaStone should they come to need sealing due to improper care.

How to Clean KalingaStone

Cleaning KalingaStone can be very simple. Since KalingaStone is stain resistant, cleaning it is as simple as using the appropriate quartz cleaning solution and not using harsh chemicals or abrasive scrubbing products. Cleaners designed for use on quartz are generally the correct cleaners to use. We do recommend reading the information provided by KalingaStone or whichever quartz surface you are considering to see which kinds of cleaners are approved.

In conclusion, KalingaStone is an appealing material for use in homes and businesses. We have seen what some of the benefits are to selecting KalingaStone and what it is made of. Additionally, we looked at some important fabrication practices that need to be considered. And we looked at what kinds of cleaner to use for maintaining KalingaStone as well as why some quartz surfaces may need to be sealed even though they do not need to be sealed initially.
