The artificial stone is a special structure from polymeric pitches and a natural marble crumb. It is strong, but thus it can be drilled and done necessary cuts. In the market this material is presented by two types: liquid and sheet. Use of any kind will lead you to the same end result, simply technologies of their production absolutely differ.

Use the technology of a liquid stone which does not have any waste. It is good to have thus a special form for filling. The stone is filled in in preparation and hardens. You need only to get it and to establish on kitchen furniture. Unconditional convenience that you will have a table-top entirely, without any joints and seams, together with an integral sink.

In the absence of a form make according to exact drawings preparation of a chipboard, MDF or plywood. Well to a progruntuyta its special structure in color of a stone. After full drying make a thick layer a dusting a liquid stone and after hardening carefully grind to ideal smoothness. Any roughnesses should not remain.

For work with use of technology of a sheet stone make at first a frame basis of a chipboard – and then by means of special glue paste on it sheets of a stone. Thus be very attentive on joints that edges did not disperse. In these places it is possible to pass in addition a thin layer of the sealer, but it is optional. The main thing to grind then so that seams not only were not felt under fingers to the touch, but were indiscernible and for eyes.

Consider that resistance of a liquid and sheet stone to temperature the different. If this factor for you is basic, remember: the sheet stone becomes soft at a temperature 160os, and liquid loses the properties only after 600os.

Independent production of a table-top conceals in itself many difficulties and obstacles. Lack of a necessary form, complexity of its production in handicraft conditions, insufficiency of a layer of a dusting, emergence of residual air bubbles when filling, opportunity to erase a considerable layer of a stone at house polishing is only their small part. Therefore make the thorough drawing of a table-top better and buy a ready plate of the necessary size. According to the scheme cut on it necessary openings independently or ask to make it for you on production.
