Advantages and Disadvantages

Due to its porosity, travertine has thermal and sound insulation properties, and the holes in travertine stone increase its resistance to fire. Travertine stone has acceptable resistance. This stone can be cut into 2 wavy and non-wave shapes. Travertine has holes and holes that must be filled during surface processing. The presence of holes in the travertine allows the cement mortar to penetrate into these holes during stone installation and prevent the stone from falling. The lower specific weight of this stone compared to some other types is significant in helping to lower the weight of the building and the loads on its skeleton.

Travertine stone has a high polishing property (especially Abbasabad and Hajiabad travertine), so it produces a high brightness, and it is also more capable of being used in volumetric views. Travertine stone is used in Roman facades, which can obtain all kinds of necessary volumes.

One of the disadvantages of this stone is its relatively high water absorption. This shortcoming was almost covered by the advancement of processing technology. Covering materials and the so-called resin during the processing and polishing of the stone cause less water absorption, and one of its effects is that the stone gets dirty later and is less exposed to weathering; Therefore, the quality of subvarzin is significant in its durability and beauty for a long time. In ancient times, due to its porous appearance, consumers did not want to use travertine stone, and travertine stone was considered one of the cheapest stones, until with the development of technology and the use of resin fillers, the result of surface processing was smooth and shiny with a beautiful appearance and properties. Be suitable mechanically and chemically. The addition of the resin step caused a big jump in the volume of travertine extraction and processing.
