Stone as a high-grade building decoration material is widely used in interior and exterior decoration design, curtain wall decoration and public facilities construction. At present, the common stones in the market are mainly divided into natural stone and artificial stone. Natural stones are divided into two types: slate and granite according to their physical and chemical properties. The artificial stone is divided into terrazzo and synthetic stone according to the working procedure. Terrazzo is made of raw materials such as cement and concrete. Synthetic stone is made of crushed stone of natural stone and added with adhesive. The latter two are made artificially, so the strength is not as high as natural stone. Stone is a high grade product of building decoration materials. The natural stone is divided into granite, slate, sandstone, limestone, volcanic rock. With the continuous development and progress of science and technology, the products of artificial stone are constantly changing, and the quality and beauty are not inferior to natural stone. With the development of architectural design, stone has long been one of the important raw materials for building, decoration, road and bridge construction.
In the past, China's stone processing enterprises were mainly faced with the export market and investment market. The consumer market has not become the main market. In the future, the industrial transformation will be realized, and the export market, the investment market and the consumer market will be equal. There will be about 10 million sets of improved housing decoration market each year, which will bring huge demand for stone and increase with the increase of housing tenure, which is a great opportunity for the application of stone. At the same time, China's stone industry will achieve industrial transfer from the southeast coast to the West and northward. Zou Chuansheng said that a lot of Chinese stone resources are imported from foreign countries. In the past, they were imported mainly through Guangdong and Fujian. After landing, they were processed by enterprises. The consumption centers were mainly in the southeast coastal areas. In the future, they will be transferred to the West and North, thus greatly reducing the logistics cost of the stone industry.
Because of the different parts decorated with natural decorative stones, the types of stones used are different. When used for outdoor building decoration, it is necessary to withstand a long period of wind, rain and sun, granite, because it does not contain carbonate, the water absorption rate is small, the weathering resistance is strong, it is best to choose various types of granite stone. The ornamental stone for the floor decoration of the Hall requires its physical and chemical properties, high mechanical strength, and the first choice of granite. Stone material; used for the decoration of the wall skirt and the bedroom floor; the mechanical strength is slightly worse, with marble with beautiful designs.
