Travertine Tiles-decorative building stone

Travertine is a dense closely compacted form of Limestone found mostly in areas where circulating ground water contains Calcium carbonate. It often forms around the mouths of hot spring waters. Travertine crystallization occurs when calcium carbonate separates from water through evaporation.

11 Travertine is often used as decorative building stone. Travertine works for both indoor and outdoor applications; it can be used in all rooms of the house: especially living, bathroom and kitchens. It can also be used for decorative purposes such as splashbacks and wall tiles.

Travertine comes in a variety of finishes including cross cut, vein cut (natural straight lines), or wave cut (random lines).

112Unfilled Travertine – where the natural stone pores and holes are exposed – can be filled on site with the grout used to give the end product a very natural look but protected from the elements.

Filled Travertine – epoxy is used at the production stage in order to create a uniform surface. A high gloss mirror finish or a silky honed finish can then be achieved again at the production stage.

Most Common Uses:

Interior and exterior wall cladding, interior and exterior paving and flooring, vanity tops, washbasins, shower trays, staircases, residential and commercial counter tops, table tops.
