Important information about this material
This material can be difficult to work with. Therefore it is advised that it be fabricated only with simple eased edges. Fabricators will ofen need to resin-treat the exposed edges to match the surface of the material. Do not use resin-filled materials outside, as the resin will discolor over time. See the Applications Guide PDF for alternatives.

 Technical Performance Specs
Rating ABRASION RESISTANCE
(The ability of a material to resist surface wear.)
Medium This material has medium abrasion resistance. It rates as a 3.5-6.5 on the Mohs scale. It is more resistant to scratching than materials with a low abrasion resistance rating (i.e. certain marbles and limestones, onyx, schist and slate). It is not as resistant to scratching as materials with a high abrasion resistance rating (i.e. granite, quartzite and porcelain tile).
Rating ABSORPTION
(The relative porosity of a material.)
Moderate This material has a low to moderate absorption rate. Always seal this material prior to use. To reduce the appearance of stains, always wipe up spills immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
Rating ACID SENSITIVITY
(The likelihood of a material reacting to acidic foods or liquids.)
Minimal This material is minimally sensitive to acids. It will not acid etch or lose its surface sheen when exposed to acidic liquids such as lemons or tomatoes.
Rating FREEZE-THAW
(The ability of a material to withstand freeze-thaw cycles in exterior applications.)
Not Recommended Due to known material weakness or because this material has not been tested, this material is not approved for use in exterior applications.
