Limestone is considered a flex stone and is a Sedimentary stones with the most percentage of calcareous in it. That is why, it has the highest water absorption comparing to other stones. Limestone Tiles has less resistance in comparison to marbles and many travertine stones. Because of high water absorption in Limestone Tile, is normally used in environments far from humidity. Since the resistance of Limestone Tile is low, is better not to use them in busy places. The ideal would be to use Limestone Tile in the indoor sections of buildings like stair walls and parking lots.
The most crucial advantage of Limestone Tile is the right low price of this stone. That is why many commercial projects prefer to use Limestone tiles in their projects. MGT Company suggests using appropriate protective materials to reduce water absorption severely. The other future of Limestone Tile is the clay mineral that makes the polishing level of this stone very low; that is why customers prefer to use other stone processes like honed, bush hammered or Leathered.
The exciting future of Limestone is observable in Limestone Slab. Although we know that Limestone is a flex stone with low resistance and high water absorption, it has better outcomes after being proceeded to slabs. It has healthier conditions than other types of rocks. In other words, the Limestone Slab doesn’t have holes and cracks in the texture, so there is no need to use resin and lacing for processing. Therefore, Limestone Slabs can be produced without extra material to increase the resistance.
One of the other future of the Limestone Slab is the ability to be produced in large dimensions. We can say that the most important markets for Limestone Slab would be eastern Asia, specifically Malaysia. It is interesting to know that another future of the Limestone Slab is the high resistance against coldness so that Limestone Slab can tolerate even less than -25° C in freezing areas. Limestone Slab is also workable in regions with cool temperatures, including acidic rain atmospheres.
The limestone’s highest form of healthy condition is observable on the Limestone Block. We extract the healthy Limestone Block with proper geometrical shapes, a rectangle cube in the quarry. Limestone Block also has a maximum standard size of 200 cm in width, 300 cm in length and 200 cm in height. In addition, Limestone Block can be extracted and cut according to the client’s custom sizes due to having future health conditions and standard sizes in this stone. This future in sizing causes the minimum waste during production.
Limestone Block has the lowest price among other stones, and that is why Limestone Block has been used in high quantities worldwide.
We have an exclusively unique Limestone Block, like another type of stone in Iran, that we can mention, like Gohare Limestone Block, which is famous and has high consumption in the market. The most critical needs for Iran’s Limestone Block would be countries like Italy, Spain, China, Indonesia and Malaysia.
MGT Company proudly provides our respected clients with all available Limestone blocks, such as Gohare Limestone Blocks and White Limestone Block.
