INVESTIGATION OF THE ACRYLIC ARTIFICIAL STONE PROPERTIES

Ludmila Andriievska, Natalia Marchuk

Abstract


The article is devoted to the research of the acrylic artificial stone properties, which has wide application in the production of furniture, in particular for the bathroom (sinks, baths), kitchens (sinks, countertops, bar counters, table tops for dining tables) and decorative interior elements (window sills, wall panels). In the Ukrainian market there are products of well-known world producers of acrylic artificial stone TM "Corian" (DuPont, USA), "Polystone" (China), LG Chem (South Korea), "Staron" and "Tempest" (Samsung Cheil Industries Inc , South Korea), HI-MACS (LG, South Korea), GetaCore (Westag & Getalit AG, Germany), and unknown trademarks, whose quality of goods is doubtful for the consumer. Therefore, it became necessary to study the acrylic artificial stone properties of those producers whose products are most in demand in the domestic market.

For the research, samples of five manufacturers of acrylic artificial stone TM Tristone (South Korea) Bitto Dongguan (China), Corian (USA), Polystone (China) and LG Ni-macs (South Korea) were selected. These samples of acrylic artificial stone were tested by standard methods for the following parameters: density, water absorption, compressive strength, flexural strength, impact resistance, wear resistance, Mohs hardness, chemical resistance and compared with standards.

Based on the research results, samples of acrylic artificial stone have been determined that do not meet the requirements of regulatory documentation, and recommendations have been made on the use of the investigated materials, taking into account their intended use, providing high performance, reliability and durability
