This is the place where the engagement of men and mountains is initiated. It’s a place where a granite manufacturer procures its raw material. There are various granite colours and hence there are many quarries for those colours as well. There might also be two or more quarries serving the same colour but the properties will differ from quarry to quarry. Granite colours are all area based.
Once blocks of stone reach the stage of processing, the blocks are cut down into smaller pieces. Dressing of the block is done by a single wire saw. Blocks are dressed to suite the machine for sawing. Blocks are then set on the trolley and are kept ready for sawing.
This is the process to cut the stones into billets before polishing them. To cut through blocks of stones gang saw works the best. It has many adjustable blades that enable proper adjustment to cut through the thick slabs smoothly. However, delicate materials would require diamond wire saw that cuts through the material gently. With passing time technology has come up with multi-wire gang saws which have the potential to speed up the production manifold.
Slabs of granite will receive a coating of a resin treatment which will fill in any pits or micro fissures which are inherent to the stone in order to make the final surface much more feasible to clean. Further polishing removes the excess resin, leaving behind only 1% of it on the finished surface.
Once this process is over, the stones are moved to the polishing section. The stones are laid horizontally on a large conveyer type line called a polishing line where the process starts by using very coarse diamond abrasives, and then moved to finer grit abrasives. After this the granite slabs receives a coating of the resin treatment which is done in order to fill pits or micro fissures which occurs naturally in the stone. This process makes the final surface much easier to clean. Materials that need a final polish surface gets a lower grit abrasive than materials which already have polished surface. Stones that are processed into tiles go through the same polishing process before they are cut into different sizes. Some of the tiles, especially the ones with polished surface gets additional small bevel, or arris, which are added to give a flawless final look. There are different types of finishes that can be done on granite. The list is as follows: Leather Finish: Through ‘Leathering’ the texture of granite or marble appears to be less glossy. This process enhances the natural properties of granite or marble and gives a stunning result to its surface appearance. And this also helps in maintenance to clean and smooth. Add elegance and style to your décor with this leathered countertop. Sand Blasting: In this process a high-pressure jet of siliceous sand or steel shots is applied. This produces a smooth cut and gives the material a slightly scratched surface. This also makes the colour tones slightly dull or subtle. Polished: A polished finish means the stone surface has reached its most refined stage. This process gives the highest level of result with a high quality shine and enhances the actual shine. And this is how the stones get a rich look and amazing depth of colour. Honed Finish: A honed finish is a stage before the completely polished level that is achieved by polishing the stone slightly less than the highest level. This gives the stone a smooth but dull appearance. Flamed Finish: This finish is achieved when an intense flame is fired at the stone and resulting the surface to crack up and become rough. Flamed finish is mainly used for the exterior applications that need slip-resistance at the most. However, a flamed finish can only be applied on a few hard like granite and certain hard limestone. Flamed and Brushed: This is a process that includes passing a blowpipe that emits a high-temperature flame over the stone surface. This gives thermal shock to the stone which works evidently on materials that are composed of minerals with diverse degrees of expansion. This process leads the surface to become rough, non-slip with faded colours and gives tone variations to the stone. Oxidation turns yellow materials into orange or red colour. Bush-Hammered and Brushed: A bush-hammered and brushed effect is achieved by pounding the stone surface mechanically or manually with a multi-pointed tool. This method creates a rocky surface with small scratches and gives lighter colour to the surface. This also makes the surface non-slip. But over the period of time this technique has been replaced by flaming and pressure water finishing which is a quicker and less expensive process.
At this point the materials are checked for its quality, gloss and thickness and then stacked up block wise. This block is now available for sale. On customers selection, the slabs will get measured after deducting any cracks and/or variations on that slab. Basically a customer will buy a perfect rectangle which is free from all cracks and defects. Mostly the rates are in sq/ft or sq/mtr but now a days manufacturers also quote in per piece basis.
Once the packaging of the measurement slabs is done, tiles are packed into boxes and made to fit into wooden crates. These wooden crates are custom built to ensure that the slabs stay in place and no damage causes during the shipping process. The materials are loaded into standard 20 foot shipping containers. Due to the immense weight of the stones, many containers are not fully packed and are loaded to maximum weight limit of 42,000 tons.
