Granite is one of the most valuable construction rocks. Due to its composition of hard materials like feldspar, quartz, small, which merge into a very hard rock, granite is ideal for kitchen countertops, because their luster is resistant to domestic acids such as vinegar, citrus juice and is enough hard to withstand scratches. Also, contact with kitchen utensils or hot liquids will not affect granite.
In addition, granite allows for underfloor heating, demanding low cost.
Through uniformity, hardness, different dimensions, very varied color and elegance, it is highly recommended for use on large surfaces, both indoors and outdoors.
It can also be used for monument sockets, like cubic stone for paving streets, alleys, sidewalks, etc.
From the point of view of physical properties, the borders are hard, compact rocks with fine and / or coarse grains of metamorphic or volcanic origin, with the following characteristics:
• Hardness: 6-7 on the Mohs scale
• Density: 2.6 - 2.8 Kg / cm³
• Com2ressive strength: 140 - 210 N / mm²
• Breaking mode: 15 - 25 N / mm²
• Water Absorption: 0.1-0.6%
• Poor porosity
From the point of view of the chemical composition, the boundaries are magmatic rocks composed of quartz, feldspar and minerals such as ferromagnesian kriolite, chlorite, granite, etc. A typical granite will have the following chemical composition:
• Cuart (SiO2): 70-75%
• Aluminum oxide (Al2O3): 10-15%
• Calcium Oxide (CaO): 0.5%
• Peroxidate (MgO): 0.5%
• Bauxite (FeO): 2-4%
• Bauxite (Fe2O3): 2-4%
• Alkaline: 4-6%
• Peroxide (TiO2): less than 0.5%
• Loss of ignition (LOI): Less than 0.5%
