Amso International exports
Italian marble as onyx, limestone, granite, Travertine blocks
of several types and quality, as:
Squared Blocks free from cracks:
these types of blocks are the most expensive, as this type of the Italian
marble production covers only 20% of the total availability; for Travertine
and Granite is much easier to find crack-free blocks.
Blocks squared with cracks in the cutting
direction: They are blocks with enough straight defects in the cutting
direction ; in this case the blocks have a useful surface once cutted in to
slabs of approximately 75% until 85% and are blocks with a good price compromise
that has a greater demands from our customers as the cost of this category
are much lower to the blocks squared free from cracks.
Semi-squared blocks with some cracks for
cut-to-size works: These types of blocks are suitable for the production
of cut-to-size works of reduced dimensions like stairs, bathroom vanity, tiles,
skirting, strips for decorations... The blocks show generally from one to
three natural cracks and their useful surface after cutting into slabs is
approximately 60% through 70%.
Inform blocks: These types of
blocks are used to produce tiles, skirting, strips for decorations, stairs
and any cut to size works of small dimensions worked with a block cutter machine.
They have generally from one to three natural cracks and they have generally
2-3 cutting sides each block. They have a useful surface after cutting into
slabs or strips of approximately 50% through 60%. The price of this type of
material is absolutely the most economic one.
