ABRASION RESISTANCE

Low

This material has low abrasion resistance. It rates as a 1-3 on the Mohs scale. Light scratching will occur with exposure to sand and other abrasives. The finish will patina or dull over time as a result of this scratching. Always use a cutting board for countertop applications and walk-off mats at entrances in flooring applications.

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

Moderate

This material is moderately sensitive to acids. Generally, acid etching will be less visible on lighter stones and honed surfaces. The finish will patina over time. If acid etching is a concern, select a minimally sensitive material.

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.
