Petrography Lab

How can Petrography help clients to choose perfect rock for construction purposes? Some ‘cut rocks’, including granite, marble and limestone, make excellent building materials. Petrography lab helps clients to estimate quality of rocks used in building materials by:

  • Classification of Building Stones
  • Evaluating of Structures of Rocks
  • Examining of Pores, Rot, Homogeneous, Water Absorption, Contamination Endure Physical and Chemical Environment
  • Examining of Alkali and Acidic Reaction and Resistance to Hydrolysis and Oxidation
  • Compressive Strength for Load Bearing
  • Examining of Abrasion Resistance
