Natural stone strength (compression, bending, and

Strength testing of the natural stone. Basically, stone testing calculates the fitness of a particular stone for a specific application. As far as the potency of the stone is concerned, testing lets you know more about the ability of the stone to resist bending and

The Importance of Testing When Specifying Natural Stone

The importance of so many samples it to ensure overall durability and strength of the stone. Natural stone is anisotropic, which means physical properties like strength, durability, and resistence to natural eroding elements like water vary depending on which direction they are measured. Similar to the grain of wood, stone can have “grains ...
