Properties of natural stone
Natural stone excels in strength and permanent mechanical properties. It does not change colour. Thanks to low abrasion resistance, the long-term attractive appearance of stone is preserved for a long time and, due to its low absorbency, it also resists the erosive influence of water in combination with frost or rapid temperature changes. Furthermore, it is a visually original and tasteful accessory to our houses and gardens.
