What Sandstone Is Used For

May 17, 2018

Sandstone is a kind of sedimentary rock, mainly composed of various sand grains, with a diameter of 0.05-2mm, sand content more than 50%, stable structure, usually light brown or red, mainly containing silicon, calcium, clay and oxidation. iron. Most sandstones consist of quartz or feldspar.


Sandstone, sound insulation, moisture absorption, breakage resistance, outdoor weathering, water insolubility, no moss, easy to clean. advantage:

From the aspect of decoration, the sandstone is simple and natural, rough and natural; the pattern changes very strangely, just like the tree rings, wood patterns and landscape paintings in the natural world; it is very elegant, warm and without any loss of noble atmosphere, giving people a sense of return and return. The feeling of mountains and the combination of good pressure resistance and wear resistance are good varieties of wall surfaces, floor decorations and profiles.

 In terms of environmental protection, sandstone is a matt stone that does not produce light pollution due to light reflection, and is a natural non-slip material. The marble and granite are glossy stones. Only through the light can the decoration effect be produced, which is likely to cause light loss.

Sandstone has characteristics such as sound absorption, moisture absorption, fire prevention, and matt due to its high internal voidage, and it is ideal for decoration of such characteristics to theaters, gymnasiums, restaurants and other public places with sound absorption requirements.

Sandstoneis a zero-radioactive stone that does no harm to the human body. There are micro-radioactivity in both marble and granite. Living in it for a long period of time will harm the human body. China's "Round Radionuclide Limits for Building Materials" (GB6165-2001) clearly stipulates that the radioactivity of sandstone is not included in the scope of radioactivity inspection. This is based on the annual monitoring and the results of a large number of spot checks made during the preparation of standards. In fact, as a stone material mainly made of Si O, A1 O, it is an environmentally friendly, green, and reliable building material.

In terms of durability, sandstone is not weathered outdoors, water is insoluble, moss is not long, and it does not change color. Many buildings constructed with sandstone 200 or 200 years ago still have the same style and charm. About Texture, it is a warm and decorative material, elegant and warm, harmonious yet elegant; with a stone texture, wood texture, There are also spectacular landscapes, rich colors, close to nature, simple and elegant, unique in many stone and was described as "Lishi."

Sandstone is the most widely used stone for human beings. Its noble and elegant temperament, natural and environmental protection features make the world famous in architecture history. The Louvre Palace decorated with sandstone hundreds of years ago, the British Royal Palace, the United States Capitol Building, Harvard University, Notre Dame Cathedral, etc. are still lingering charms, and the classics are forever.

Since 2000, sandstone as a natural building material has been followed by fashion and nature architects, widely used in commercial and home decorating. At present (referring to the year 2009), the world has been exploited by Australian sandstone, Indian sandstone, Spanish sandstone, and Chinese sandstone. The color and pattern most welcomed by architects are Australian sandstones. Australian sandstone is an eco-friendly stone. Its products are characterized by no pollution, no radiation, no reflection, no weathering, no discoloration, heat absorption, heat preservation, and non-slip.

The products include sandstone sculptures, relief murals, sculptured flower plates, artistic flower pots, sculpture fountains, style fireplaces, Roman columns, door and window covers, lines, frames, lighting, puzzles, hangers, home accessories, environmental sculptures, architectural details sculptures, etc. Garden sculptures, campus sculptures, abstract sculptures, celebrity sculptures, European components, sandstone panels, hollow columns, hollow flower panels, plastic rockery, landscape sculptures (decorative sculptures, water sculptures, etc.). All products can be arbitrarily colored, painted, polished, and gilded according to the requirements; and the technical work can make the surface of the work appear rough, fine, cracked, natural crevices and other real stone effects. The main production colors are yellow sandstone, white sandstone and red sandstone. Purely hand-made, wear-resistant, durable, beautiful appearance. The product is entirely artificially synthesized from inorganic materials and is a green product.
