Stone is normally available in various textures and finishes:
Polished : The Most popular finish – One side is Finished by the action of the Abrasives on polishing head, gives a mirror finish on Granite, and diminishing in the reflective properties, as we go from Granite to marble and slate etc.
Honed: A smooth but unpolished finish, produced by using a less number of abrasives on a polishing head – leading to smooth but Non-reflective surface.
Sanded (usually for Sand-Stone): Coarsely polished to remove sawing blade marks, to leave a semi-smooth but regular finish.
REPAIRING/NETTING : We do the repairing/netting to reasonable levels and not to the extent of joining two broken pieces. Moreover, more importantly, we use low viscosity epoxy based resins specially produced in Italy & Germany for stone application. We never use cheaper polyester-based resins, which have a limited life.
THICKNESS: While sawing, especially marble we take a lot of care, for the best result as it is a very brittle and pasty material. A little less carefulness and the result is taper slabs.
We maintain a very low down feed and regularly monitor the sharpness of diamonds to insure maximum tolerance of +/-0.5mm within a same slab.
FLATNESS/CURVES : At KIRIT TILES PVT LTD we have carefully controlled this very common and major problem. We never let the sawing result in slabs with a curve, which makes the fabrication/installation very difficult. We always maintain flatness of slabs to the permissible tolerance limit.
GLOSS / POLISH : We polish the Granite / Marble slabs & Tile on automatic multiple head line polishing machine from Breton- spa & peddrini spa of Italy. We never supply merchandise polished on “locally made table polishing machine”. We guarantee an excellent flatness, Proper pre bed preparation and suitable life of the gloss at international levels.
SQUARENESS : We maintain Perfect square ness in cut to size materials; thanks to the automatic bridge cutting machine from Peddrine SPA & Breton SPA, Italy. We never use locally made bridge cutting machines or conventional hand driven edge cutting machines as it is far than difficult to maintain.
PACKING : We never try to save cost on wood or other packing materials. We consider that the quality of packing is as important as the quality of product.
SHIPPING: Even in F.O.B. & C.& F. shipments we consider it as our duty to investigate and inform the buyer with various options of suitable shipping lines offering best freight along with shortest transit time and satisfactory service. Our job does not just end upon loading the container. We maintain the track of container till it reaches the destination and keep the client advised of various movements/trans shipments.
Packing of tiles is done in corrugated boxes , giving thermocol and plastic covering. They are then packed in sea worthy wooden crates, to give a strong support in order to avoid any breakage or loss during transit.
Random and cut to size slabs are packed in sea worthy wooden frames in 20' each., giving required covering by minimum 5 mm plastic sheet & thermocol.
All the containers are braced/lashed properly. Pictures are taken of each container for records as a safeguard against any mishappenings.
