Travertine Stone is a type of porous limestone that is one of the sedimentary and decorative rocks. These rocks are remnants of sediments from hot springs. The cavities in this rock are the source of sediment due to the space occupied by gases in hot waters. The less water-soluble elements of these sources, the brighter the color of the stone.
Travertine has a porous texture and a variety of stripes and colors, due to its color variation due to differences in the composition of the sedimentary rocks at the time of deposition, and to show different veins.
Travertine due to its porosity, thermal and acoustic insulation properties, and travertine cavities increase its resistance to fire. Travertine has an acceptable resistance. This stone can be cut into three undulating shapes.
Travertine has holes and holes that must be filled during surface processing. The presence of a travertine cavity causes the cement mortar to penetrate the cavities during the installation of the stone and prevent the stone from falling. The lower specific gravity of this rock is significant compared to some other types to help reduce the weight of the building and the load on its skeleton.
