Islamabad Limestone is a limestone that has a clear and uniform background, and besides its beauty, it has a reasonable price, which has made this stone popular in Iran and even outside of Iran.
A high percentage of lime is used in the structure of these stones. The main base of these stones is the mineral Kleist. The high percentage of lime in this stone has caused it to be formed at a low temperature. This stone is one of the old and famous stones in the market.
This stone is sorted into super, premium and first grade, which is based on its color theme and uniform surface.
The combination of Islamabad Limestone with black marble stones (Spider Marble and Lashter Marble) will be very beautiful and create an eye-catching atmosphere.
Marvdasht white tramite stones are one of the stones similar to Islamabad Limestone.
This stone is produced and extracted in the mines of Kermanshah province, near Islamabad, and is sold in the market. Islamabad limestone is exported to Iraq, Oman and Turkey.
Features of Islamabad Limestone
Islamabad Limestone has a very bright and white cream background. In the weaker grades of this stone, halos and veins can be seen in a flower pattern.
Benefits of Limestone Islamabad
Islamabad Limestone has a very reasonable price compared to white travertine, which has made Islamabad Limestone a competitor for white travertine. The price of Islamabad Limestone is much more suitable than Abbasabad Travertine, although the quality and other characteristics of Abbasabad Travertine cannot be compared to Islamabad Limestone in any way.
Due to low sorting of limestone and mass production, this stone can be produced in large quantities and used for large projects.
This stone has an acceptable resistance to pressure and does not have a lot of waste during cutting and tooling and shows resistance.
The very good and long height of this stone, which has made us not need to tie it during execution and have a smooth and beautiful surface, is another advantage of this stone.
Disadvantages of Islamabad Limestone
The calcareous nature of this stone has caused a very high absorption of water in these stones, and nano-hydrophobic materials must be used to use this stone. The high percentage of lime in the structure of this stone has caused the weakness of Islamabad Limestone against moisture.
The above issue has caused this stone to have a weak wear resistance and cannot be used on the floor of high-traffic areas.
The limestone of Islamabad does not have a good sanding ability, and the processing of this stone in a sanded form has caused light reflection.
Today, all the mentioned cases have been solved by using nano-hydrophobic materials, and this stone will be a good economic choice due to its reasonable price and great beauty.
