length 230 through 300 cm ; height 120 through 180 cm, based on the characteristics
of the materials. They are crack-free, therefore usable up to 90/95%, and
suitable for every cut-to-size work, like tiles, countertops for kitchen and
Slabs for export of small measures sold per square meter.
The cost of this kind of slabs is approximately -10 through -20% lower than
the cost of greater slabs. These slabs measure: length 170 through 240 cm;
height 90 through 130 cm, based on the characteristics of the materials. They
are crack-free, therefore usable up to 90/95%, and suitable for every cut-to-size

Slabs for cut-to-size works sold by weight. These slabs vary
in dimensions, both large and small, and show natural cracks. The usable surface

cost of the finished work remains more competitive.
