... which is used for many different purposes, including building material, fillers, and decoration. There are different types of gravel, including decorative gravel, grit, and decorative stones. For laying polygonal slabs, we recommend gravel with a grain size of 2-4 mm. Quartz gravel as a natural product is a naturally occurring mineral rock fragment, mostly consisting of rock from the Earth's mantle. It contains many minerals, including quartz, feldspar, and mica. We use it in a finer grain size as joint mortar to create a robust and water-permeable joint between natural stones. Colored quartz gravel is produced by color coating to achieve a unique and attractive appearance in garden design and landscaping.

Versatility and durability are further characteristics of quartz gravel, as well as resistance to chemical erosion and weathering changes. It also serves as a very good drainage material and can be used in laying paving stones, rubble stones for garden paths, bed edgings, or garden terraces. Quartz gravel is also used as a filler in mortar and concrete products and is a very powerful and durable material that contributes to increasing the strength and density of concrete products.

What makes the pre-treated quartz gravel from special?

The special feature of our quartz gravel is that it has been washed twice and flamed once. This pretreatment avoids the unclean, dusty, and crumbly consistency typically found in conventional quartz gravel. Through the double washing process and flaming, a largely clean grain is obtained, which is important for the resin to form a clean bond with the quartz gravel. We recommend before using the stones, to drop the bag from a height of about 50 cm onto the ground in a controlled and jerky manner so that the remaining dust particles can settle at the bottom of the bag.

Quartz gravel and synthetic resin as joint mortar

Quartz gravel is a commonly used material for the production of joint mortar. It is a particularly hard rock, usually available in the form of finely ground grains in various colors and sizes. Quartz gravel is a very resilient material and is therefore particularly suitable for use as joint material. The quartz gravel is mixed with a special joint mortar to create a robust, durable, and water-permeable joint without concrete. The mortar can be applied in different colors to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

Colored quartz gravel (Colorquarz) is produced by using a color coating process, where the gravel grains are immersed in a solution with a color. This can be done either by dipping in a colored solution or by using a special color coating process. The color coating process can be produced in a variety of colors, giving the grains a unique and attractive appearance. Colored quartz gravel is a popular choice for landscape design projects, as the different colors and patterns offer a variety of aesthetic properties and effects. The gravel can also be used as decoration for plants, gardens, and paths.
