What are basalt tiles?Despite its attractive appearance, the natural stone basalt is not very popular compared to other building materials. Both builders and architects increasingly appreciate the use of basalt tiles. They particularly appreciate the low downforce and the mechanical resistance of this natural product. The natural stone itself consists of a mixture of magnesium and iron silicates. Like granite, it can be used universally and is suitable for a large number of different construction projects.
Basalt tiles easily defy even high loads.However, the use of acidic cement film removers and cleaning agents should be used with caution. Due to its property of absorbing little water, the natural stone is used, among other things, in road construction and as railway ballast. Basalt tiles are particularly characterized by their robustness and frost resistance. This makes basalt tiles extremely suitable for outdoor areas or heavily used paths.
