Marbles are honed or polished during placement. Although polished surfaces provide both spectacular and bright appearance, they are quite slippery on wet surfaces. For this reason, honed marble should be preferred when using marble on wet floors. Since it has a hard durability, it is used more marble than wood for floor covering.

The material, whose marble models have been made brighter with the polishing technique, preserves its first pattern and color, even after many years.

Let’s answer the question of what is slab marble. Slab marbles are formed with turning it by processing after coming the large and molded marble blocks, which are carefully cut from the quarries to the factory. However, since the blocks cut from the quarries are generally of standard size, the marble slabs dimensions are generally the same in size and width. The marbles that are cut in different sizes depending on the needs of marble slabs thickness are not ready to be processed in these forms. In accordance with where it will be used, the factory steps are as follows; cutting with circular saw, working slabs according to the desired size (marble slabs 2 cm, 1 cm marble slabs, 1 slab marble), honing or dulling process, polishing and marble slabs erasing. In addition, if necessary, the flame heating technique, the purpose of this technique is to eliminate the slipperiness of the marble (Pool, Turkish bath). Acid cleaning technique, ageing method, hammering technique (purpose is to make patterned marble floor), sanding method, filling process (aims to eliminate unwanted roughness on marble), natural sizing method (round marble slab, square marble slab, rectangular marble slab, pentagon marble slab etc.)
Marble slabs dimensions are cut according to the areas to be used and sized. While marble is cut differently for floors, it is cut differently for kitchen tops. In workings such as marble sculptures or marble vases, marble slabs are not used, and works are made directly over the marble block. The sizes of the marble slabs can be almost as much as the size of the slabs in relation to the surface width of the place to be applied in marble fountains or marble wall coverings. As the desired dimensions grow, the wall thickness of the marble is also increased. Thus, its durability is also increased. The size of the marble slabs differs according to the size of the marble blocks. It is cut from marble blocks from 1.5 * 2.5 * 30 meters to 2.5 * 4 * 60 meters. When working with veined marble blocks, the blocks can be cut small in order to not suffer losses, and thus, it is not any problems such slab cutting.

Before mining the marble blocks, the marble quarry capacity must be examined by underground sonar. In addition, the compliance tests of the marble to conditions of use have to had, its chemical analysis have to. After these stages, it is processed in factories and marble products confirmed the sale can be placed on the market. The marble blocks are cut according to the needs in the factories, if marble slabs or dressed working will be made, they are made ready for use as marble pieces.

Our block marble products are determined the price list and presented to the demand according to their designs in different features, patterns and colors. Releasing to the market as raw block marble, as it is obtained from quarries, whose usage areas increase day by day, has accelerated substantially to marble production. Granices continues as leadership with its raw block marble product variety and efficiency in product R&D works.
