The order of stone naming is of great significance to the development of stone industry
There are many kinds of stone. In order to identify the stone easily, a name will be given to the stone.
Stone name and people’s name is the only one, can not be called Zhang San, Li Si, or Wang Er, so Hu Ming will certainly make the world chaos.
However, there are many stone names: for example, Egyptian beige is also called new Beige; blue hemp is also called blue pearl; Jinshan hemp is also called golden hemp.
Stone names also have very similar names, such as Pangda: Jinsha black and Jinsha stone are only one word different. Are they the same kind of stone?
However, the surface colors of the two kinds of stones are quite different.
What is the meaning of Italian goldenrod? Or Athenian goldenrod? Afghanistan black gold flower?
These “specious” names in stone once caused the employees of some enterprises in the stone industry to use the wrong materials, resulting in the scrapping of all the processed products, causing heavy losses to the enterprise.
Jinsha stone was made of Jinsha black, which led to the scrapping of several hundred thousand yuan doorsets: the author experienced a project in Shanghai in the 1990s, and the project needed Jinsha stone at that time. Due to the low recognition of stone materials in the 1990s, the engineering and technical departments mistakenly believed that Jinsha stone was Jinsha black when placing an order, and the material to be processed in the workshop was Jinsha black. When the product is processed and sent to the construction site, it is found that Jinsha black is not the Jinsha stone required by the project at all. Jinsha stone is a kind of light yellow sandstone material, while Jinsha black is granite material with golden highlights on the surface. The two styles are completely different.
As a result, the door pocket worth hundreds of thousands of yuan was scrapped and redone. Due to the lack of understanding of stone materials by the engineering and technical personnel, self righteousness led to this kind of major work error.
There are more than one similar thing: in the 1990s, the Technology Department of a stone enterprise where my friend worked mistakenly turned Italian large flower green stone into Italian grain green stone, resulting in the scrapping of a set of spiral stairs. At that time, the price of spiral stairs was extremely high and the losses were heavy.
Reflecting on this mistake, we can’t completely blame the technician. If we are strict and conscientious in the naming of stone materials, and do not adopt such “specious” similar names, I don’t think we will make such low-level mistakes.
There is no unified national standard for the naming of stone. Many stone names are named by stone enterprises or design units themselves. Once upon a time, there was such a design company that gave some strange names to stones. The purpose was not to let people know the real name of the stone, but to earn more money with such strange names.
In recent years, gray stone is popular. Stone enterprises have made great efforts in naming stones, and have come up with many grey names: Asian grey, space grey, Castle grey, Lucas grey, snowflake grey, Maya grey, yundola grey, Turkish grey, cypress grey, fish belly grey The names of this series of gray stones have local names and foreign names. Our stone makers are confused, let alone consumers?
Standing in front of those unfamiliar stone names, it’s really like “deja vu”, but it’s as if it’s a distant world.
The confusion of stone names in stone industry reflects some hidden rules and tacit secrets in the industry. By confusing the name of the consumer’s line of sight, to the original cheap stone prices, to earn more profits.
The gray stone in the picture can name many “specious” similar stone names. Many kinds of names are just commercial marketing means.
This paper only takes gray stone as an example to illustrate the bad results brought by the confusion of stone names in stone industry. Similar phenomena are too numerous to enumerate!
What’s more, in the stone industry, consumers are misled by the same name for different stones. Low price stones are used as high price stones to earn excess price difference.
For example, artificial granite is used to replace natural stone and Athens is used to replace Italian. In particular, the practice of using stones with similar color and texture to Italian BLACKGOLD flowers to earn excess profits has become a criticism of the stone industry, which is despised and despised by the stone industry people and can not tolerate this kind of market behavior. This practice has damaged the reputation of the stone industry, which is despised by other industries of building materials!
Those “specious” stone names do harm to people, and should be corrected in the stone industry, so that the industry can establish a correct integrity, resist unhealthy trends and promote the healthy development of the industry.
When encountering some “specious” stone names, we should take the initiative to consult and ask more experienced masters. We should not make our own decisions. We should take this kind of stone “Zhang Guan Li Dai” as another kind of stone, making a big mistake, leading to the scrapping of the products.
More can not “specious” low-cost stone, quality stone sold to customers, cheat consumers, disturb and damage the reputation of the stone industry. In order to maintain the normal business order of the stone market, stone enterprises should standardize their stone product names, protect their long-term stability, and keep consistent with the market names. They should not change and change their stone names at will. Like snow white and old Beige materials, although they have been for nearly 30 years, their names still remain unchanged and their original colors remain unchanged Finally.
This is of great and far-reaching significance to maintain the market order of stone industry. We hope that the “specious” names in the stone industry will be completely corrected and changed, and there will be no more “specious” stone names that are easy to confuse the employees of the stone industry and mislead consumers.
