Properties of Marble
Marble has many properties due to which it remains one the most popular natural building materials:
Convenience of processing. Marble is plastic and easily polishing. It is viscous and strong enough, therefore it does not break at once, allowing cutting products of various forms;
Durability: The first signs of white marble ageing appear only after 100-150 years;
Water resistance: Water absorption factor of marble is low (0.08-0.12 %), so it can be used for finishing of bathrooms, pools, fountains.
Frost resistance: Marble practically does not absorb moisture — therefore, there will be no micro cracks from liquid freezing under low temperatures. Products of marble can be used safely in cold premises;
Thermo stability: Heat does not influence on marble, so it can be used for fireplaces or to finishing of premises, where temperatures essentially exceed usual temperature;
Ecological compatibility: Marble is classified as a first class material by its level of natural radio-activity, and it can be applied in construction of all types of objects. Being a natural material, it is porous and is capable of breathing — it creates a favorable microclimate in a room;
