Marblestone is a recycled natural stone
that has been crushed, pressed, heated, and
bonded with a very small amount of resin. Unlike
natural stone which is porous, Marblestone is
less pervious to moisture which can cause
mildew. Marblestone is more resistant to
scratches and stains than quarried or cultured
marble and does not require special cleaning or
polishing. Marblestone is a green material which
helps our environment and is not a petroleum
rich material such as cultured marble.
Marblestone is a material that can be used in a
variety of areas. From bathroom counters, shower
walls and floors to table tops and wainscoting,
Marblestone is the perfect material. Beauty and
affordability make Marblestone the perfect
choice for your next project.
Marblestone uses what man throws away from the quarrying of natural marble. The chunks and pieces of stone discarded by quarries are used to create Marblestone. These chunks of natural marble are crushed, ground and mixed with a small amount of polyester resin then compressed and heated. Marblestone slabs can be defined as composite materials as they are the product of a combination of two or more different raw materials. Composite materials are capable of providing physical and mechanical properties that are superior to the materials in their natural form. This combination of materials allows the product to exploit the best properties of each component material while, at the same time, eliminating their less useful characteristics.
This process creates the beautiful non-porous material that is Marblestone.
