ABRASION RESISTANCE

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.

ABSORPTION

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.

ACID SENSITIVITY

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.

FREEZE-THAW

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.
