Properties and disadvantages
Travertine has a thermal and acoustic insulation due to its porosity, and the cavity in travertine stone increases its resistance to fire. Travertine has an acceptable resistance. The stone can be cut into two waveforms without wave. Travertine has holes and cavities that should be filled during processing. The presence of a cavity in travertine causes the cement mortar to penetrate the cavity during the installation of the stone and prevent the fall of the stone. The less specific gravity of this rock is significant compared to some other types in helping to lower the weight of the building and the loads it has made to its skeleton. The disadvantages of this stone are relatively high water absorption. This problem was almost covered by the progress of processing technology. The coating material and the so-called resin at the time of processing and polishing of the rock reduce its water absorption, and its effect is that the stone is more dirty and less exposed to weathering; therefore, the quality of the subobasic in its durability and its beauty for Long term is significant. In ancient times, because of its porous appearance, consumers were reluctant to use travertine and travertine was the worst rocks, until the growth of technology and the application of resin fillers resulted in a one-handed and glossy surface treatment of a beautiful appearance and properties Proper mechanical and chemical. The addition of the resin stage caused a large leakage in the volume of travertine extraction and processing
Travertine is suitable for interior and exterior facades due to its high porosity.
Travertine can be used even in very cold areas with high rainfall in the facade of the building without worrying about rolling the stone.
In the interior view, you can also:
Used according to taste.
