Michigan Granite & Natural Stone Contractor in Ortonville

Have you ever looked at two pieces of granite that looked similar but were priced drastically different? Why is there a price difference? For many materials it is as simple as logistics. Compare driving from Ortonville, MI to Brasil and then traveling from Ortonville, MI to Zimbabwe. So the higher priced stone is most likely from a location that requires more handling.

Definitions of Chemical Properties of Natural Stone (Shelby Township, MI)

What is Acid Resistance?

Defines the quantity of weight loss of a natural stone when exposed to an acidic solution for a defined timespan and at a defined temperature. The result is expressed in mg cm-2.

What is Alkali Resistance?

Similar to the Acid Resistance, the Alkali Resistance of a material describes the weight loss a natural stone suffered when exposed to an alkali solution for a defined timespan and at a defined temperature. The result is expressed in mg cm-2.

What is Water Absorption?

As natural stone is not a homogeneous material, it absorbs liquids. Water Absorption is measured by submerging a natural stone in water at a defined temperature and for a defined time span. After this process, the increase in weight is quantified and expressed in percent (%).

What is Freeze-Thaw-Resistance?

Freeze-Thaw-Resistance measures the weight loss a natural stone suffers when being exposed to a defined number of freezing and thawing. Before the test, the material is submerged in water for a defined timespan. The repeated freezing and thawing will cause the absorbed water to expand and contract repeatedly. The results are measured in percent (%) of weight loss. According to graniteland.com
