Tiles of cast basalt

The pavement is made by melting of natural basalt and its casting into metal moulds.

The paving tiles cast by this manner feature excellent properties, due to which they are used in industrial operations exposed to mechanical and/or chemical loads. They are also often used due to their attractive and uncommon appearance.

This range covers tiles with smooth or anti-slipping surface and their various accessories, such as coved tiles, so-called L-pieces, and many atypical shape tiles.

Colour of the pavement is determined by nature of the natural material and cannot be changed or painted.

Each tile is an original by its appearance and thus also the floors made from our tiles are non-repeatable and unique.

The pavements are divided as follows:

•INTERIOR                    Beauty and Uncommon Appearance

•EXTERIOR                   Functionality and Uncommon Appearance

•INDUSTRIAL                Resistance and Durability

•ANTISLIPPING             Functionality and Serviceability

•HEXAGONAL               Original Sets and Personal Character

•ATYPICAL                    The unknown basalt pavement

Types of tile back sides – rasters

The basalt tiles are produced with three basic types of the back side:

•With rough grooving – so-called rough raster, marking = R

•With fine grooving – so-called fine raster, marking = JR

•Without raster – so-called smooth tiles, marking = H

R – The tiles with rough raster are used for laying into bed from wet concrete mix, or it may be glued by binding material similarly as ceramic tiles onto prepared, properly cleaned, matured and compact concrete bed.

JR – The tiles with fine raster are used for gluing by binding material similarly as ceramic tiles onto prepared, properly cleaned, matured and compact concrete bed. The use of this raster is advantageous also for special adhesives and binders, e.g. in chemical operations, regarding the decreased consumption of the adhesive.

H – The smooth tiles are used very rarely, mainly for special purposed, where extreme minimum thickness and minimum consumption of the basement adhesive is required. As standard, the raster tiles with R and JR grooves are produced.

Our organization is the prominent manufacturer and trader of high quality Cast Basalt Pipe. These pipe are designed and manufactured in compliance with the industry standards using high grade material of construction. These pipe fittings are developed with qualitative raw material. We offer custom made pipes as per their exact requirements of our clients.

Friction Resistance – As more material is passed over Cast Basalt it gets polished up thereby reducing friction further. Cast Basalt improves in service after getting polished. Wetting also improves its performance in practical applications.

Impact Resistance – Direct Impact Resistance at 90 degree is low like all other ceramics, but it can be increased with proper installation by reducing the angle of impact. Cast Basalt is the best wherever sliding abrasion exists. Moreover, external impact strength of composite basalt pipe (enclosed in M.S. Shell) is always more than that of bare Ni-hard Pipe.

Chemical Resistance – Cast Basalt is almost absolutely acid/alkali resistant (except Hydrofluoric Acid) and hence corrosion resistant.

Weight and Sizes – Basalt Tiles are available in regular shape square of 200 x 200 x 30 mm thick, weighing approx. 90 kg/sq m; whereas bends and pipes are lined using Basalt Cylinders of various standard sizes from 50NB upto 500NB.

Temperature – Cast Basalt withstands temperature up to 4500 C.

Life – Life of basalt-lined pipe is estimated to be 7 to 10 times that of Cast Iron, and 3 to 4 times that of Ni-hard Steel.
