Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS THE CORAL STONE?
To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.Coral stone is a completely natural product where fossilized inlays and footprints of marine organisms such as corals, calcareous algae, carbonate excretory worms, and other fossilized organisms contained in a calcium carbonate base stand out.It is a limestone rock of metamorphic origin of rustic appearance with great presence of pores of different sizes and depths.
It can also contain small amounts of minerals such as hematite, siderite, quartz, etc., which modify, sometimes noticeably, the color and degree of coherence of the rock. They contain veins of different shades varying from cream, almost white, through a pinkish hue to ocher yellow.
These shades are defined by the minerals found in them, in addition to the place of origin.The white tendency of the coral in our quarries is due to the fact that they are limestone formed in the warm and shallow seas of the tropical regions, in those areas where the detritic contributions (residues of the disaggregation of bodies) are unimportant
.These fossils contribute their characteristic appearances making each stone a unique specimen. He takes from Mother Nature the expression of uniqueness in each of his creations giving distinction to each stone.Apart from its beauty, among its most notable features is that of maintaining cool temperatures even when exposed to the strong summer temperatures that characterize tropical regions. This makes it ideal for use in outdoor and pool areas.
HOW DOES CORALINE RESIST THE EXTREME COLD CHANGING CLIMATE TO TROPICAL HEAT, OR RAINY TIME?
There are no problems exposing our coral stone under cold, heat or rain.
As you can read in the test reports, we subject our stone to extreme temperature cycles of - 40 degrees Fahrenheit and without any sign of breakage or change in its structure.
WHERE CAN WE USE THE CORALINA?
The most common use of coral stone is in floors and wall coverings both exterior and interior, pool curbs, moldings, columns, used as pavers, arches, planters, stairs, cornices, etc.
HOW MANY CLASSES OF TERMINATIONS DOES THE CORALINA HAVE?
In its natural state, coral has an opaque (matte) appearance, but it can be polished until it becomes glossy or glossy. In addition they can be rammed, stamped and stuccoed, aged, polished, chiseled, beveled, split face, sandblasting.
WHAT SURFACE IS IT INSTALLED ON?
It can be installed on concrete or sand.
