Q.What are granite slabs?
A. Many professional buyers call granite slabs as granite big slabs or gangsaw slabs. Granite Slabs are produced by gangsaw by cutting large granite blocks into 2cm, 3cm or other thickness sheets, the edges can be sawn or natural. After cut, these slabs are cleaned and then processed into various finishes, such as polished granite slabs, flamed granite slabs, honed granite slabs, etc. Special thickness of slabs are available according to the customers' need.
Large prefabricated granite slabs are often cutted for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanity tops, table tops etc., thick granite slabs are used for gravestones, tombstones, stone arts etc.
Q.What are the standard dimensions of Granite slabs and how are they prepared for shipping?
A.Usually, the minimum average sizes of granite slabs are over 140x260cm, some sizes reach 180x280cm, but the longest can just reach 280cm, because the longer slabs couldn't be loaded onto the container. Most thickness can be 2cm or 3cm. The granite slabs are packed in bundles of approximately 20 to 50 square meter, each bundle including approx. 8 to 10 granite slabs. Each bundle weighs 2.6 tons, or 5,700 pounds. Every slab is protected by a thin plastic sheet placed between slabs. A piece of wood is placed beneath the slabs. The information that is printed on the labels attached to each bundle includes:
• Name of the Material
• Billing Sizes
• Quantity of slabs in the bundle
• Block number from where the slabs come
• Country of origin
Q.How many square meters of granite slabs can be loaded onto a container?
A.Usually 450 square meter or 4800 square feet 2cm thick granite slabs can be placed into a 20‘ GP container. The granite slabs are packed in bundles of approximately 350 to 500 square feet. Each bundle includes approximately 6 to 10 slabs, weighing 2.6 tons, or 5,700 pounds. For 3cm thick granite slabs, 300 square meter or 3,200 square feet, fill up a container of 20' GP container. Anyhow, the total weight of one container can not be over 27 tons.
Q.How are granite slabs sealed?
A.Slabs are treated with resin most commonly in one of two varieties:
1. Resination with hydro-repellent, a treatment which covers most of small fissures, and helps to brighten the color of the granite. This is the more common variety of sealant.
2. Resination with epoxy: This treatment fills up larger holes and open veins. This variety is generally used with Brazilian stone.
