Granite Exporter Of Essentials + Exotics
APP Black Granite is economical with a dark black background with consistent lighter, fine clear crystals in it and sometimes with fine gold mica points. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite however in the area of application of the European Standard we are awaiting clarification. During the polishing process a clear epoxy resin filler may be used to fill any micro fissures or tiny pitting however this does not affect the integrity of the stone, it merely provides an even smoother surface finish. APP Black Granite is suitable for both interior and exterior use futhermore is frost resistant and with a constant polish.
Suitable for construction projects both commercial and domestic, prefabricated countertops/worktops, vanities, tiles, backsplashes, paving, fireplaces and memorials.
APP Black Granite looks best with a gloss polished surface but is also available as honed, leather/satin, river-washed/antique, thermal/flamed, flamed & brushed, water-jet, bush-hammered, sandblast and sawn finish.
Test with a small sample. It is possible that a sealant can be used on APP Black Granite however excessive attempts at sealing it could actually create a residue film build-up.
Indian Dark Grey, Indian Impala, Indian Rustenburg
From our own sheet bedrock quarry near Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, Southern India. The veining and colour varies little and a small sample of APP Black granite should be representative of the whole slab however swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes.
APP Black granite slabs are available in standard 20mm and 30mm thickness for random slabs, cut-to-size (dimensioned) slabs and prefabricated countertops to the customer's specifications, 40mm thick slabs are produced but are not usually held in stock for immediate despatch.

A dark-coloured, medium-grained igneous rock which contains plagioclase feldspar of labradorite composition and pyroxene of augite or titanaugite composition as essential minerals, and magnetite, titano-magnetite, or ilmenite as accessory minerals. Where olivine also occurs as an additional mineral, the rock is termed an "olivine dolerite". Where quartz occurs as an additional mineral in the groundmass, the rock is termed a "quartz dolerite". Dolerites are the medium-grained equivalents of basalts and, like the basalts, can be divided into alkali and tholeiitic types. Dolerites are commonly found in shallow level intrusions such as dykes, sills, or plugs.
This is a medium-sized granite quarry yielding several, selectable, grades of granite with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized and monument blocks. Extraction commenced in the early 1990s. For commercial projects it is important to ensure that blocks are selected from the same quarry face.
Rough blocks are usually exported by Break Bulk however intermodal containerisation is available at extra cost. Finished products are packed into sea-worthy wooden crates and loaded into containers.
