Travertine tiles, scientific name is travertine, English name: (Travertine) is a kind of porous rock, so people usually call it travertine paving. Travertine is a porous rock. Commercially, it is classified as marble. Travertine is a continental sedimentary rock that is a deposit of calcium carbonate. Since there are occasional voids in the process of heavy accumulation, and since its main component is calcium carbonate, it is easily dissolved and corroded by water itself, so many natural irregular holes appear in these deposits.
The color of the travertine stone is mostly beige. It is gentle, rich in texture and clear in stripes, which promotes the decoration of buildings, strong cultural and historical charm. At the same time, its main features as follows:
1. The travertine pavers has uniform lithology, soft texture and hardness, and is very easy to be mined and processed. 2. Travertine has good processing, sound insulation and heat insulation, and can be used for deep processing. 3.
