Indian Granite is known for its compactness (low porosity), its high resistance to compression, its hardness and tenacity. It is resistant to mechanical use and traction or breakage.
All these properties make granite the most versatile and universal choice for a wide variety of applications like Flooring, Wall Paneling, Exterior Cladding, Kitchen Platforms, Vanity Tops, Table Tops, Kerb Stones, Tomb Stones and many other areas.
Granite offers beauty, easy care and durability. Granite is consistently hard, with very dense grain, making it difficult to stain and hard to scratch. Although we would not recommend subjecting it to very drastic and sudden changes in temperature, it is actually highly resistant to temperature damage, and is an ideal material near ranges or hearths.
Cutting & chopping on granite is not recommended, simply because steel knives will swiftly lose their edge, blunted by the hard stone. Its smooth dense structure also means that it provides few havens for bacteria, and is therefore ideally suited for kitchen worktops.
Granite is found in upscale and sophisticated residences, palaces and hotels throughout the world due to its texture and luster. Natural stone provides the look and feels of elegance through a quality and strength that will never be reached by other materials. The variation in each slab, and especially the grain or “movement” in the crystal structure, are part of the charm of buying natural stone. Many people find this flow and blending of colors to be the most compelling reason for using genuine stone for their kitchen worktops.
Granite being a durable material as well as undoubtedly beautiful makes it an ideal product with which to furnish your home. It is stain resistance, heat resistance and scratch resistance making it an excellent choice for a variety of situations within the home from kitchen and bathroom worktops to floors & even garden tables!
