What are the classifications of Construction Stone?


G602 And G603 Light Grey Granite Stone For Stairs Riser And Skirting.jpgConstruction Stone refers to natural stone that is mainly masoned or decorated with architectural engineering. The natural stone used for construction is the rock that constitutes the earth's surface crust, which is cut and processed after being mined. From the perspective of microcosmic and material fundamentals, rock is an aggregate of minerals. The mineral composition and rock chemistry of natural stone can determine its physical and chemical properties. The so-called rock and rock system refers to the size, shape and arrangement of the rock mineral particles, which of course also include their cement composition. Therefore, we can determine the type of stone by the composition of minerals and rock formation. In general, rocks are defined according to the way they are generated and can be divided into three categories: igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, and metamorphic rocks.


Construction Stone can be divided into 3 categories: rubble, stone and decorative stone. The granites referred to in the building decoration project refer to a type of decorative stone represented by granites, including various types of magmatic rocks and granites with quartz and feldspar as main constituent minerals, and a small amount of mica and dark-colored minerals. Stone metamorphic rocks, such as granite, diabase, gabbro, basalt, peridotite, etc. From the aspect of appearance, granite often has an overall granular structure, which is called granite structure. Granite slabs are mainly used for large-scale public buildings or indoor and outdoor decoration projects with high requirements for decoration. Granite is not easy to weather, the appearance of color can be maintained for more than a century, so, rough and fine-faced plate is often used in outdoor floors, walls, columns, legs, bases, steps; mirror plate is mainly used for indoor and outdoor floors, walls Surfaces, cylinders, tables, steps, etc., are particularly suitable for large public building halls.


Artificially-decorated stone is a kind of man-made material made of non-polar or organic gelling material as adhesive, natural sand, gravel, stone powder or industrial slag as coarse and fine fillers, formed, cured and surface treated. It generally has the characteristics of light weight, high strength, thin thickness, bright color, various colors, good decoration, corrosion resistance, pollution resistance, easy construction, and low price. According to different materials and manufacturing processes used, artificial facing stone can be divided into cement artificial stone, polyester artificial stone, composite artificial stone, sintered artificial stone and glass-ceramic artificial stone. Among them, polyester artificial stone and glass-ceramic artificial stone are currently used in many varieties.
