Slate

India slate stone is a naturally occurring fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous, metamorphic rock. Slate is a shale type sedimentary rock comprising clay or volcanic ash. Foliation is observed in Slate. When slate is cut and made smooth it could be a perfect constructional component. It could serve as the best kitchen or any other vanity countertop. But in order to be used for specific purposes, the slate stone has to expertly cut and polished in a quarry. Slate occurs in variety of shades- from light to very dark sheets of grey. It should be known that Slate is an excellent roofing material. It is a fact that 90% of European roofs are made of Slate.

Coming to building purposes, Slate has an edge over other stones as an excellent roofing material. Indian slate tiles are most preferred for roofing for its thin nature. Slate can be slit into two parts without making the rock lose its original nature. This makes slate a very good roofing material and also Slate is ideally stackable. Some other benefits of Slate are its very low absorption rates of water. This can keep the building warm even during conditions like heavy snow, rain, fog etc. The minimal moisture retaining ability of the rock makes the stone very suitable for construction purposes.

Slate flooring and tiles are also not uncommon and are fixed and laid with the help of hooks or nails. Slate tiles are used for flooring interiors, exteriors or for wall cladding. Slates that are spread as floorings or wall claddings are usually treated with sealants in order to improve the efficiency and of course the look of the stone. Slates set in all can secure the walls from damping. There are some constructions made of pure slate all over too. These days Slate enters even modern dwellings to improve the overall appearance of a residence. Slate is also used as table coaster.

In India slate is used as kitchen or any other vanity countertop especially for its low water absorption quality. Also slate is heat resistant. All these combine to make Slate the most preferred kitchen or any other domestic countertop.

It is an excellent and believable truth that Slate is anti-bacterial. It could be one of the most preferred domestic countertop for it demands just a little care and maintenance unlike many other stone countertops. One more benefit derived by opting for an Indian Slate Countertop is that scratches can be made smooth easily on slate. In simpler words scratches on countertops could be erased easily. The thin quality of stone is such.

Besides being an excellent countertop material, all types of slate slabs can also be used as an excellent ‘backsplash’ in Indian kitchens where there is considerable amount of food spill owing to elaborate cooking processes. With slate as an effective backsplash, the area could be cleaned and maintained properly without much hassles.
