Technical Support
  • Properties-Mean Values (Metric Units)

  • Mohs Hardness = 8-9

  • Volume Mass = 2900- 3000kg.m\3 {2800-2900KG.M\3 per Din28062)

  • Compressive Strength = 300- 450Mpa [450-550Mpa per Din28062} 78,000 pounds per square inch.

  • Abradability = max. 5cm\3 / 50cm\2 [4-6cm\3 / 50cm\2 perDIN 28062]

  • Wear Resistance = 110 mm\3

  • Absorption Rate = 0% mass 

  • Thermal Conductivity = 1.9 – 2.2 W.m-\1. K-\1[1.0-1.2W.m-\1 per [DIN 28062]

  • Thermal Shock Resistance = 1000 degree C

  • Insulation Resistance = 10\10

  • Sulphuric Acid Solubility = 9 % mass

  • Chemical Resistance – general: all organic solvents & acids, alkaline solutions, including inorganic solutions, except hydrofluoric acid.

  • Slip Resistance: Higher values mean greater slip resistance. These results compare favorably to conventional quarry tiles, brick pavers & smooth concrete. 

  • Smooth & JITKA surface = R- 10 DIN 51130

 

  • RB & RC surface = R-11 DIN 51130

F. D. A. Approval 

All Cast Basalt Tiles are F.D.A. approved for use in food processing & handling facilities.
