New Imperial Red granite is a coarse to very coarse-grained, red granite. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite and in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as a granite. 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. New Imperial Red 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.
New Imperial Red 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 New Imperial Red Granite however excessive attempts at sealing it could actually create a residue film build-up.

New Imperial Red granite is quarried near Ilkal, Karnataka, West and East Ghats, India. There are several different quarries of red granite and known under various names, the veining and colour can vary in graining and fleck size. For projects do not mix red granites from different quarry sources since it will most likely be very obvious!
New Imperial Red 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 coarse or medium-grained intrusive igneous rock that is rich in quartz and feldspar; it is the most common plutonic rock of the Earth's crust, forming by the cooling of magma (silicate melt) at depth. The principal constituent of granite is feldspar. Both plagioclase feldspar and alkali feldspar are usually abundant in it, and their relative abundance has provided the basis for granite classifications. In most granite, the ratio of the dominant to the subdominant feldspar is less than two. Rocks containing less than 20 percent quartz are almost never named granite, and rocks containing more than 20 percent (by volume) of dark, or ferromagnesian, minerals are also seldom called granite. The minor essential minerals of granite may include muscovite, biotite, amphibole, or pyroxene. Biotite may occur in granite of any type and is usually present, though sometimes in very small amounts.
This is a medium-sized granite quarry yielding selectable, grades of granite with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized and monument blocks. Extraction commenced in the 1980s. 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.
