Processing of stone

In the process of producing products made of natural stone the structure is treated by mechanical or thermal method. After processing the surface can be obtained several varieties: cliffy, sawn, burnished, polished, sanded, conchoidal, melting.

On exterior of large buildings, in order to underscore their monumentality, used a cliffy facture. It is an imitation of roughly processed stone, arranged in a chaotic sequence  bulges and hollows.

Cleavage occurs with the use of wedges on a pre-weakened the blast-holes surface. With the help of  billet you can get the sawing surface. It is used when laying the grounds and garden paths, for facing foundation and walls. Polished facture fairly smooth, but not mirrored. It is achieved through the use of grinders machine tool coated powders. This facture provides excellent picture of stone and used as an exterior cladding or floor of the building. With further grinding, polished surface is obtained polished facture that perfectly underlines the color of the stone. This form of processing carried on conveyors, using powder coating on the tools and fabric circles. Polished facture should be used for small elements: socles, casings, portals.

Polished surface is formed in processing by polished circles of the stone half-finished products.

Slabs with such surface are used for the floors, stairs and platforms for reduce of sliding.

Slabs with conchoidal surface are used for interior design and decoration of the walls and  buildings.

For such surface is characterized by cavities up to 4 mm of deep, are giving decorative appearance of the stone.

Melted surface is achieved by thermal processing of stone, making it better and shows its color and facture.

Stones with such processing are used in facades of buildings, for laying steps, ladders and grounds.

There are four ways to handle the stones:

      - processing of metal by cutters (is used for processing of soft stones);

      - processing intensified by tooling by method of spalling (for the formation of humps on the surface of products);

      -  sawing and polishing using abrasive tools;

      -  cut stones.
