Travertine and marble from Turkey – splitface

 

Turkey has an intensive and well-developed industry of a special type of natural stone product: the split-face. These are bands of stone normally made with Travertine or Marble with a rough surface called split-face. 

On this video we introduce you to a beautiful type of stone: split-face stone. This is a fantastic way of re-using stone that would normally be rejected or simply has lower selection, turning it into a great looking and fairly uniform type of stone. The split-face is commonly used on exterior cladding, wall coverings or diverse decoration. We analyse on this video the process of doing split-face as well as the main materials used to do this type of product.
