Travertine rocks have a good resistance to cold, heat, UV rays and air humidity compared to other rocks. Of course, most granites also have these properties, but sometimes air humidity may oxidize the iron minerals present in them and cause the appearance of granite to become overwhelming over time, which in some dark forms of the sun causes the loss of color Natural Stone.
In recent years, with the advancement in the technology of extraction and processing machinery, the use of travertine has become widespread in Iran
Travertine has been one of the ugliest rocks in the past, but with a change in its processing, technology has made it one of the finest and most beautiful rocks.
Travertine, due to the variety of colors and design it has been able to place a special place amongst the types of facade rocks, and according to the cost item it can be said that the best option for choosing a stone is travertine stone, which removes porous surface It stays on the wall and has a good shelf-life effect.
It should be noted that the installation of stone is different from the implementation of other rocks and requires its own special conditions and skills.
Considering the difference in temperature at night and in the seasons, and as a result of the expansion and contraction of the stone, if the stone masonry is used for the cement slurry, there is a possibility that the stone will be sloped from the facade, so it should be done by scoping the stone It should be tightened, otherwise it should be screwed one by one to the facade some time after installation to prevent it from falling. Which does not have a good look for the facade of the building, so it is better to spend the cost of the installation after installing the stonework to make it scan before the run. Another method for installing stone is the Chinese drying method, in this way, before installing the stone, it was necessary to use the metal profiles and metal backs to buckle the work and tighten the rocks with a clamp on the chassis.
The strength of the stone masonry, especially when it is supposed to be at an altitude, is more important. Therefore, the stone should be of proper porosity so that the mortar and slurry that are cast behind the stone are tightly cling to the stone and reinforce two Due to this, Stone Travertine is one of the best options for rock placement, due to this feature, and one of the main weaknesses of the stone marble for The same is used as a stone.
