1. The application of Granite Tiles

For a multitude of reasons, granite tiles are topping the rank of the favorite building materials used in residential, industrial, and commercial building constructions. The rocks' appearances are naturally unique thanks to the crystalline image that is innate in it. Granite is basically a natural stone reputed for its being the hardest as well as the densest.

1) Resistant to corrosion, scratches and heat
2) Can be used in very high traffic areas
3) Not affected by freeze-thaw cycles in outdoor applications
4) Provides a natural acoustical barrier
5) Granite is an all natural material and each piece is unique
6) More durable than virtually any synthetic flooring surface
7) Will not fade
8) Easy cleaning and maintenance

The granite tile have multiple applications areas that include laying floor, and making fireplaces, counter tops and steps. The tiles are engraved in the walls of kitchen and bathroom, floor and the counter tops. The granite tiles are also emerging as the popular medium used in the pillars. Using the tile in varying combinations, colors and patterns imparts an altogether a different look along with aesthetic beauty.

3. Finish method, color

Polished & honed: In general, the two finish methods are the most popular choices for granite tile. They can be used in almost all wall covering and any tile flooring applications that do not require slippery proof.

Natural slit: provide maximum slippery proof. The best for paving outdoor high traffic areas like driveway, sidewalks, public squares and shopping center entrances.

Other finishes: are applicable in wherever designers consider appropriate for granite tile. Typically the flamed finish tends to darken original color of the granite and could impose certain reddish color tones as a result.

Note: There is a minimum thickness requirement for hammered, picked, sandblasted and chiseled finishes, which sets at 3/4 inches or 2 centimeters.

Top-selling: G603(gray), G682(yellow), G654(dark gray), G636(pink), Shanxi Black(black), etc.

表面加工方式?/strong>抛光,哑光,火烧,斧凿,荔枝面,喷砂等等?/p>

* 此处请注意,薄板的加工有些客户需要轻微倒角,再磨边,有一些客户不需要。在客户没有确认的情况下,我们不能轻易地判定是否需要给客户倒角,因为这样会在地板上板与板之间留下一条明显的缝隙。有些客户不喜欢?/p>

不需要倒角:squared off, with no chamfered edging.
倒角的描述:chamfered, calibrated

*在用公制换算的国家,一般列的厚度尺寸为10或?0MM?/font>

6. The processing of granite tiles

(1) Saw-Cutting, the granite blocks are cut to size so as to utilize them as slabs and tiles with the help of wire saws treated with different types of durable abrasives such as sand, diamond and aluminum oxide. High pressure water jets are also used to cut the granite in tandem with traditional wire saws.



(2) Polishing, after cutting is accomplished, adjust their thickness. The stone is polished on one side.

We use such polishing tool to polish the marble to be the high glossiness reflective surface. The type of abrasive pad is as follow: steel polish pad, 50#?00#?00#?00#?00#?500#, 2000#?/p>

?0# is the rough polishing type?00?00# are fine polishing type,above 800# belongs to the exquisite polishing type?/p>

(3) Chamfering, we usually chamfer the 1mm edge to make it feel round and smooth.

(4) Calibrating, Gauging; Measure each cut carefully, making sure you take into account the spacing necessary to make the appearance of the tiles consistent. Mark each tile on the back with a pencil.



(5) Cutting, then cut it with the wet saw. This is the job for a diamond bladed wet saw. It may seem like a large expense in order to cut just a few tiles around the edge of the room.



(6) Repairing, The equipment of repairing includes; mill paper, glue, color pen, blade and the powder of the stone (that one needs to be repaired)

If the gap or hole is too big or deep, we should firstly use the stone powder and glue mixture to fill the gap. After concretion, use the mill to polish, color it when necessary. If the hole is not big, using wax and the electric melting machine is enough.

(7) Sealing, The sealant acts as a protective coat for your granite tile. It protects the tile from moisture. You can purchase different types of cleaners and polishes to keep your granite tile free of dirt and scratch.

花岗岩薄板的加工

花岗岩薄板加工是自动加工流水线,各工序之间由滚道、卸料机、翻板机相连。其流程如下:荒料吊装→锯割成薄板→截头→研磨抛光→切断→磨边、倒角、铣槽修补、清洗、干燥→检?/p>

 花岗岩加工的基本方法有:锯割加工、研磨抛光、切断加工、凿切加工、烧毛加工、辅助加工及检验修补?/p>

1) 锯割加工是用锯石机将花岗岩荒料锯割成毛板(一般厚度为20mm?0mm),或条状、块状等形状的半成品。该工序属粗加工工序,该工序对荒料的板材率、板材质量、企业的经济效益有重大影响。锯割加工常用设备有花岗岩专用的框架式大型自动加砂砂锯;多刀片双向切机;多刀片电脑控制花岗岩切机和花岗岩圆盘锯石机等花岗石平尺?/p>

2)花岗岩平台研磨抛光的目的是将锯好的毛板进一步加工,使其厚度、平整度、光泽度达到要求。该工序需要通过几个步骤完成,首先要粗磨校平,然后逐步经过半细磨、细磨、精磨及抛光,使花岗岩原有的颜色、花纹和光泽充分显示出来,取得最佳装饰效果。常用设备有:自动多头连续研磨机、金刚石校平机、桥式磨机、圆盘磨机、逆转式粗磨机、手扶磨机?/p>

3)切断加工是用切机将毛板或抛光板按所需规格尺寸进行定形切断加工。切断加工常用设备有纵向多锯片切机、横向切机、桥式切机、悬臂式切机、手摇切机等花岗石平台?/p>

4)凿切加工是传统的加工方法,通过楔裂、凿打、劈剁、整修、打磨等办法将毛胚加工成所需产品,其表面可以是岩礁面、网纹面、锤纹面或光面。常用手工工具加工,如锤、剁斧、錾子、凿子。有些加工过程可采用劈石机、刨石机、自动锤凿机、自动喷砂机等?/p>

5)烧毛加工又称喷烧加工,是利用组成花岗岩的不同矿物颗粒热胀系数的差异,用火焰喷烧使其表面部分颗粒热胀松动脱落,形成起伏有序的粗饰花纹。这种粗面花岗岩板材适用于防滑地面和室外墙面装饰。常用设备有花岗岩自动烧毛机?/p>

6)大理石平板辅助加工,是将已切齐、磨光的石材按需要磨边、倒角、开孔洞、钻眼、铣槽、铣边等。常用设备有自动磨边倒角机、仿形铣机、薄壁钻孔机、手持金刚石圆锯、手持磨光抛光机等?/p>

7)检验修补,天然花岗岩难免有裂隙、孔眼,加工过程也可能产生小的缺陷,通过清洗检验吹干,正品入库,缺陷不严重的可以粘接、修补减少废品率。这一工序通常是手工作业,在先进的加工线上采用自动连续吹洗修补风干机?/p>

7. Maintenance:

But of course in order to maintain the shine and beauty of your granite tile flooring, you have to take good care of it. Make sure to clean it with soap and clean cloth, gently rub your flooring and dry it after. If in case, there are spills on your marble tile flooring, clean it right away, do not let the spill be left on your marble tile flooring for long time, it may cause stain to your marble tile flooring.

9. FAQ

1. What surface method can you supply to us?
An: Polished, honed, tumbled, bush-hammered, picked, sandblasted and chiseled finishes. Any method you can think of.

2. I need to order the Botticino Classico tiles, pls give me your details.
An: Dear sir, pls kindly note our quotation is based on half a container. It is because this color is rare, we need to cut the block into tiles at the same time. So pls do a favor to us if we could have enough cash flow and clear the stock promptly. Thanks for your understanding in this side!

Actually many marble colors required by our customers are offered in the unit of one whole container, like the Royal Botticiano, New Royal Botticiano which prices are in the high ends

Or if the quoted stone prices are in the low end, truthfully if you want to get a good price, pls kindly choose half a container for each color as an economical method. Like the G635, G636, G603, G681, G664, G687, Aromatic Jade, Fei net, Overload’s Flower, Dafang Grey, Black-White Veins etc.

3. Please send the pictures of the white marble. What is the best price you can offer for these stone size 60 x 60 x 2,00 and 80 x 80 x 2,00?
An:1. Because the white marble with 20mm is not a market size here, so Here we recommend the 17mm thickness which is widely accepted in the stone industry. GuangXi White, White Carrara, Bianco Carrara Venato and Crystal White are the popular white marble.

Actually many imported marble colors are all available in 17mm thick. Like the above white marble, Rojo Alicante, Rosalia, Angel Cream, Timber Travertine, Limestone, Emperador etc.

2. And I'm sorry the crystal white in 800*800*17mm is unavailable. You know the stone are natural, there always have little problems like color stripe and crack, especially for the white marble. In order to control the quality and supply you with the content products, pls refer to our recommend colors.

The same with Dynasty White, it usual contains some impurities and has yellow lines on the surface; It’s even unavailable for 600X600mm cut-to-size.
And Fei net, Cream Red. The reason is that we can avoid the breakage and better arrange the package. In another hand, the cost would be lower for the 305X305mm, 305X457mm etc sizes.

4. I’d like to get your price of the slate tiles.
An: Pls kindly check the quotation and note the below points:
1. Here we provide three slate colors: Black, Rust and Yellow.
2. The available size is 300X300X7~10mm. Due to the solid mineral composition and special structure, its hard to calibrated all the slate stone into the same standard thickness. Its thickness tolerance is within +/1 ~3mm.
3. Pls refer to the two surface finish methods: Sawn & honed. It’s all due to its special structure; they’re hard to reach to a mirror face.

5. What’s your package for the tiles?
An: PACKING STYLE:
Styrofoam box/ Foam box/ Paper Carton for the tiles/Cut-to-size,
Then we pack them within the Wooden Crates fasten with Plastic Strap.
