Mbandingaken Marble lan Granite

Marble lan Granite loro sing bahan bangunan ayu. Bentenipun estetis antarane marmer lan granit sing prakara saka rasa. Sawetara pengguna milih kang atos lan dipikir seragam granit, kang rawuh ing sawetara saka sudhut werna lan pola. Seneng marmer kanggo ayu lan dipikir Gamelan.

Marble lan Granite loro sing bahan temen beda. Marble punika rock metamorphic dumadi saka materi karbonat recrystallized, ngendi granit iku sawijining rock igneous sing granular lan phaneritic ing susunan lan dumadi saka quartz lan Feldspar.

Perbandingan antara marmer lan sirah granit kanggo sirah ing kategori penting bakal menehi kita idea bab panentu kang watu kanggo nggunakake ing bangunan lan mbenake project.

Katon Comparison Marmer lan Granite

Marble and Granite both come in a wide range of colors and patterns. Being a phaneritic material, granite shows the grain. Granite also has a lot of quartz and feldspar content. The quartz and feldspar contents show on rough granite as rusty finishing. The marble is a smoother material since it has a lot of carbonate material, the rough marble appears smoother than granite.

Granite

The grains of granite appear as specks that are in different colors and patterns, this gives the overall material different colors as Red, Green, Orange, Brown ing cahya kanggo mbandingake peteng. The pattern is smaller and crystalline. Iku ndadekake materi liyane seragam. granit Pure luwih seragam lan bahan jenis kurang. Umumé, it has medium to dark shade. Some Granite also has a wavy pattern, Pola kali utawa werna ngalangi (Absolute Black Granite). Iki amarga ing beda saka granit. pola Bergelombang amarga isi liyane Feldspar lan werna granit ngalangi ora granit murni nanging gabbro a. (check black galaxy granite)

Marble

karbonat menehi werna marmer putih lan ireng. Different types of minerals give marble its color. It can be white, black, green, brown or chocolate sometimes. Marble can be a dolomite or serpentine. Dolomitic marble has very fine crystals of quartz, and serpentine marble has more veins. Since marble does not have phaneritic texture, it appears as smooth and veiny patterned. Marble has a bigger pattern than granite. The big patterns appear as clouds, veins or forest type look. Umumé, marble has light to medium shade. The color tends to be consistent with veins running through it that concentrate the color. A Brown slab of marble might have darker maroon veins; a green slab might contain veins that are quite grey-white in color.

Result: Marble is more beautiful than granite, but granite is more uniform.

Durability Comparison of Granite and Marble

Granite

Granite is often cited as the most durable natural stone available. It is known for resisting crack and chipping well. It has a high content of quartz, which makes it a highly durable natural stone. The feldspar is also a hard mineral and the feldspar has its presence in the stone. The surface is hard enough that if somebody cut right on the surface, the surface will be unaffected. Granite slabs are cut on special Gang Saw and Wire saw unit with Dimond cutting tools. The Gang Saw are heavier than normal Gang Saw units. It needs special Dimond cutting tools to cut blocks. It does not cut on Normal Gang Saw machine due to its hardness.

Marble

The marble is also a hard and strong material, but it is porous in nature. The porosity makes it prone to scratches and damage. There may be scratches on the surface if cut right on it. The Calcium Carbonate is less hard than quartz. The cutting of marble is done with Normal Gang Saw unit. The Gang Saw unit for cutting the marble is less heavy than Granite. Due to the softness of marble, it is a popular choice for making Moortis, Idols, Flowerpots, fountains and other types of stone sculpture. The artists judge the hardness better and they prefer making sculptures from Marble than granite. Nanging, the marble is strong enough to take most of the scratches and does not need epoxy resin to fill the pinholes.

Result: Granite is more durable

Stain Resistant Comparison of Marble and Granite

Marble

To avoid stains, the sealant is applied on the surface of countertops or floors of marble and granite. Nanging, marble is more prone to stains than the granite. Marble has very close grains or almost zero grains. It does not leave much space for the sealant absorption. Due to this, the sealant does not last long. When the sealant is removed from the surface, the oil or some other liquid can leave spots on the surface, but since the surface is difficult to penetrate for the liquid as well, it is less likely to have stain marks. White marble is more prone to stains than any other color.

Granite

Umumé, any liquid spilled on a granite top, if wiped up within a few minutes, will not stain. Nanging, even water can soak into a countertop and leave a dark colored spot, nanging iki bakal evaporate ing menit. Cairan sing ora evaporate, kayata lengo bakal nimbulaké reregetan yen ngiwa kanggo rendhem menyang watu. Nanging sealant uga dianggo ing watu iki. Absorbs sealant luwih saka marmer. Dadi ing lumahing slabs lan nggawe firewall kanggo lenga utawa Cairan liyane kanggo ninggalake panggonan colored.

nanging, tanpa sealant, marmer kurang rawan kanggo reregetan. Iku gampang kanggo nembus lumahing granit dening Cairan lan ninggalake tandha rereged yen sealant ora Applied (amarga pinholes). Kristal marmer nyedhaki saben liyane lan ora menehi akeh papan kanggo Cairan kanggo nembus lumahing.

Result: Loro-lorone Granite lan Marble sing reregetan tahan yen njupuk care saka

Polishing Comparison Marmer lan Granite

Marble

Marble watu alus saka granit ing, nanging pari-parian marmer akeh Ana kang ndadekake lumahing banget hard. Ing lumahing hard njupuk polishing banget. around 7 jinis abrasive digunakake kanggo njupuk polish ing lumahing marmer. Nanging, marmer isih kurang atose ing comparison kanggo granit ing. Masalah karo polishing marmer katon karo sirah siji manual polishers. Iku polishes unevenly ing lumahing papan. polishing kaya ombak lan siji bisa ndeleng lapisan polishing saka sisih saka papan gampang. Uga saka sing paling Italia minerals Line, iku ora bisa kanggo entuk kinclong luwih saka 95 unit.

Mbokmenawa atose watu main peran amba sak tataran polishing saka watu sembarang. Yen watu punika hard, ana kemungkinan sing bakal duwe polishing apik tinimbang siji alus, lan ing skenario materi alus iku marmer. Ana pangecualian saka Green Marble lan Fantasi Brown marmer ning kene, loro bahan ingkang kawéntar kualitas polishing. The properties of both the marble are suitable for high gloss polishing.

Granite

Granite being the toughest stone available in the market takes excellent polishing. There is plenty of quartz and feldspar content in it, which makes the material harder and strong. Quartz is one of the toughest minerals and it helps the stone to get better polishing and shining. around 9 types of abrasives are used to get polish on the granite slab surface. In which 2 types of abrasives are diamond abrasives. These hard diamond abrasives cut the surface of slab evenly and make it smooth for further polish.

The Epoxy Resin is used in getting high gloss finishing in Granite Slabs. It is impossible to get polishing with the manual single head polisher for slabs and get high gloss. The Polishing needs weight on the abrasive and that is why Line Polishing machines are much successful for getting a good polish on slabs or tiles. It takes very high gloss up to 120 gloss unit, which is too high for a marble to achieve. The Epoxy Resin helps to fill the pin holes and get high gloss polishing.

Result: Granite takes the better polishing, but some marbles also do

Maintenance Comparison of Marble and Granite

Marble

Marble is a soft stone in comparison to marble. It lacks the hardness and toughness in comparison to granite. Marble will etch easily if exposed to acid and bases. In everyday Kitchen, such chemicals are used very frequently. Marble also scratches more than the granite. At Moh’s scale, the hardness of marble is four and therefore it is more prone to scratches. The sealer does not work well on the marble surface. One need to do sealing of marble on regular basis and it increases the overall maintenance cost.

Marble flooring also has the same problem. Marble is a brittle mineral and it needs proper processing to get good flooring slabs and tiles. Many Chinese, Omani, Turkish, Italian and marmer Indian needs net or fiber on the backside. This net or fiber hold the material together. Even few qualities of Green Marble also need netting on the backside, which also increases the overall maintenance cost. The polishing on the marble may fade in a few years, so repolishing is required in a certain period. Ing lumahing marmer uga dadi patina sawise jejak biasa liwat.

Granite

Granit iku salah siji saka watu toughest kasedhiya kanggo jogan lan Kitchen Countertops. Wis atose pitu ukuran Moh kang, kang meh pindho saka marmer. It does not get scratches easily. uga, the sealer works perfectly on the surface. Butuh dangu Sealer kanggo njaluk mati lumahing granit ing. The sealer lasts long on the surface, it penetrates the surface. The sealer is mixed with color matching epoxies to fill the pinholes and penetrate the surface. It does not look odd and one cannot judge pinholes on the surface.

Being a tough stone, it does not need fiber or net on the backside of the slab or countertop. While there are few granites which need such treatment if cut in thickness of 2 cm. Nanging, in general, it does not need any kind of netting to hold it. The polishing of slabs does not disappear easily. Granite needs just one-time polishing.

Result: Granite has less maintenance cost but the high production cost

Price Comparison of Marble and Granite

Price is an important factor in deciding the purchase of anything. Loro-lorone Stones Natural kasedhiya ing sawetara rega dhuwur lan medium. Ana akeh granites mirah kasedhiya ing pasar uga marmer mirah.

Marble

Marble punika Stone Natural, kang Processing luwih murah tinimbang granit ing. Lagi Cut ing gang normal weruh mesin utawa kabel weruh mesin karo pribadi mirah murah. Biaya kanggo njaluk papan marmer, kothak marmer utawa countertop marmer ing ngisor granit ing. The polishing pad lan abrasive sing luwih murah saka granit ing. The recovery of blocks at the quarry is also very high in marble. Marble has fewer cracks and fissures than granite and It is easy to cure them in the marble slabs or tile. It is also noteworthy that small tiles of marble are old in different markets at lower prices. The average cost of production in marble is lower than Granite.

Nanging, due to very high demand and less availability, some of the marbles are among the most expansive natural stones in the world such as Carrara marble and Statuario marble from Italy. There are also Egyptian marbles and Green Marble from India, which is among the cheapest stones in the world.

Granite

The cost of production for an average granite slab is much higher than any type of marble. Granite is cut on special Gang Saw machines, which are expensive than normal gangsaw machines. The availability of big blocks is very low at quarries. Umumé, quarries produce smaller size blocks (which are of course cheaper than the bigger one). The cost of producing a big block and a small block is the same, but the price difference is due to the size and less availability of big blocks. The polishing is also an expensive process on slabs. Butuh sak 9 macem-macem jinis abrasives kanggo njaluk kualitas polishing ing slabs. Processing saka watu iki luwih dhuwur tinimbang ing Processing saka marmer. All these factors make it an expensive material for Kitchen Countertops or Flooring.

Nanging, Granites kayata Rosy Pink lan Platinum Putih ana ing antarane bahan murah kasedhiya ing pasar. Sampeyan bisa njaluk watu iki ing rega kurang saka akeh Marbles. The prices depend on the supply and demand.

results: Marble iku murah saka Granite ing Umum, but some marbles are more expensive
