Basalt is a black stone known for its hardness and thermal properties. It has a relatively homogeneous chemical structure and is free from impurities.
It is commonly known as a strong material that is better quality than limestone. Basalt has a higher L.A. and gives superior results than the traditional white limestone. It increases the concrete’s strength and makes the mix more compact. The result is a stronger material to produce aggregates for construction. By using basalt in our mixes, we use less cement but get a higher strength.
Basalt stone and basalt-based construction materials are environmentally friendly and are not hazardous like some other materials. Basalt is a thermal insulator and a buffer against acidification. It is inflammable and does not have a toxic reaction to water or air. In contact with other chemicals, it doesn’t create any chemical reaction. This means it is safe for both human health and the environment.
We mine our high-quality basalt ourselves from our own mine. We use basalt stones with great success and achieve outstanding results.
