Split Face Production Process
Natural stone is most often quarried in large pieces and then worked down through various means into the sizes and finishes desired. Primary and secondary cuts are most often made using band style diamond wire saws. The process starts with marble blocks, which are smaller than regular blocks, cut into random sizes with 2cm or 3cm thickness. Mechanical processing for the finish side of the stone will include the use of hydraulic splitters designed to break the stone along its natural cleavage lines, which creates the split face stone look that we are discussing today. Before packing, these bands will need to be cut to size, in order to straight the long edges to give them a free length format. Once this final cutting process is done, the split-face bands will go into crate, for later shipping.
