Silver Grey Travertine is a kind of natural marble of its own.grey Travertine is a kind of sedimentary rock which is a kind of stone formed by calcium carbonate deposits.But unlike limestone formed in the ocean.Silver Grey Travertine pavers is formed by depositing calcium carbonate and other minerals dissolved in water on riverbeds and lake bottoms.
The pores of Silver Grey Travertine tiles come from pores, and these pores rise from the crust to the surface, or are released into the sedimentary layer due to the decomposition of animals, plants and shells.
Because the materials of continental deposits are affected by the continental environment, the deposition conditions and sediments are complex and diverse, so that their phase transitions will change quickly in time and space, and the rapid deposition makes organic matter and gases (such as carbon dioxide) impossible. Release will also cause porosity during the repacking process. In addition, calcium carbonate, the main component of travertine, is easily dissolved and corroded by water, which makes the stone naturally form many irregular holes inside.
And because of the inherent holes, the density of travertine units is low. In modern buildings, it is mainly recommended to be used as covering materials instead of base materials. But at the same time, because of its low strength,Silver Grey Travertine tiles is easier to cut and process than ordinary stone, and its high plasticity has become a favorite material for many sculptors. This also explains the main reason why Silver Grey Travertine Floor Tiles has been widely used since ancient times and became popular during the Renaissance.
Because of the existence of a large number of holes, the volume density of Silver Grey Travertine Brick itself is low, the water absorption rate is high, and the strength is low. Simply put, the overall physical properties are worse than ordinary stone. Moreover, the uneven distribution of holes in the plate also causes problems in the uniformity of the physical properties of the material, and there is a greater risk of damage. Long-term excessive water absorption may also cause material cracking, fading, discoloration and other problems.
The hard damage of the natural opening is the severely low frost resistance.Grey Travertine Pool Coping always shows horrible results in the freeze-thaw cycle weather resistance test. In addition, the carbonate structure of travertine also has serious congenital deficiencies in its resistance to acid rain. Many problems make the appearance and physical structure of grey travertine outdoor tiles greatly tested by the external environment.
