Wet polished tile of G383
Goods out of G383:
G383 quarry is nominally divided into 3 layers going down from the ground level. The stone extracted from the first layer, which is the closest to the ground level, has notably more pink grains in its structure. We select only the stone from the third layer of the quarry, which has a very uniform, even and neutral color. For large orders (thousand square meters and above) we order blocks located next to each other in the same layer of the quarry, thus guaranteeing the maximum uniformity of color.
Blocks located close to the ground level in the quarry have a lot of contact with the oxygen, so there is a bigger chance of oxidation processes for those layers, hence the tendency to have rusty inclusions that have a negative effect on the appearance of the stone. Xiamen Pagoda-Build rejects such stone on the very first stage when the blocks are selected.
As in case of any other natural stone, there is always a chance of having some obvious black spots, white lines, cracks and other defects discovered after stone is sawn and polished.
Xiamen Pagoda-Build strictly controls stone quality and reject these defects on the stage of secondary quality inspection when the stones are checked during packing. When strips are polished on the polishing line, some edges might come out not very well polished. All those poorly polished edges are cut off and utilized when the strips are cut into tiles. Before packaging, we dry all the stones thoroughly in the open air, thus guaranteeing perfect visual control of stone appearance (note that many defects might appear invisible on the wet tiles).
