IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In general, light-colored limestone is difficult to maintain in flooring applications with heavier traffic. See the Applications Guide PDF for alternatives.

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

High

This material has a medium to high absorption rate. Always seal this material prior to use. Properly seal the material prior to grouting by applying several coats of sealant or until water beads up on the surface. Use Fila PRW200 to avoid staining from grout residues and specify a grout color that is similar to the color of the stone to avoid color bleeding into the material. Use low moisture setting materials. 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

High

This material is highly sensitive to acids. Acid etching will be highly visible on this material when exposed to acidic foods such as lemons or tomatoes. Do not use this material on kitchen countertop applications where acid etching is a concern. If acid etching is a concern, select a minimally sensitive material.

FREEZE-THAW

Vertical Exteriors

Due to this material's Highly Absorbent rating, its Abrasion Resistance rating, color fastness and tensile strength, this material is suitable for vertical exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern. Use a granite base to prevent wicking at the grade and use MIA standards for thickness in exteriors. Consult an engineer regarding fastening systems and thickness/tensile strength required for your project. This material will stain and therefore is not suitable for exterior paving applications. This material will patina.
