Azul Bahia GRANITE: The Way History is Made
To appreciate why Azul Bahia Granite is considered a valuable material, its history must be examined. Its story began millions of years ago when deep within the earth, molten rock cooled and recrystallized to create one of the most durable materials known to man ? granite.
Granite's usefulness has been known since ancient times. Early cultures such as the Egyptians used granite and some of the granite structures still remain today, as a testament to the resilience of the material. Because polished granite erodes at a rate of about 0.125' per thousand years, granite can stand up to the passage of time.
With modern technology comes a new chapter for granite. StonePly's aluminum honeycomb process merges the natural stone with high-grade aluminum to create an innovative material that is able to respond to the increased demands of today's construction. Its impact strength is 60 times greater than ordinary granite slabs.
