The sandstone is a clastic rock that is formed by the concretion of sands over time. As a result, it is very often presented in a composition of flat layers with horizontal and parallel direction.
Sandstones are distinguished by fine grain, medium grain and large grain.
The color of sandstone varies based on its composition: from yellow to red and brown or from light gray to dark blue-gray.
Being easily worked and attractive, sandstone is widely used in interior and exterior decoration.
Sandstone is usually split with manual machines if the sandstone occurs in random shape blocks. If, however, the blocks are presented with sawn surfaces, it can be processed on automatic machines, for example, the P4 series with 4 blades.
After splitting the blocks of sandstone may be finished on the Pitching Side machine to achieve an effect of a convex surface, called Ashlar.
The sandstone can be processed optimally with all the machines of Pitching Series: One, Side, Horizontal pitching machine, Beaver. The Series Pitching, in fact, has been developed to realize special finishes on sandstone and on other types of stones, such as the effect "pitched" or the edge dressing.
The finishing of the sandstone before laying can be performed through the machines of MDC Series: it comes to manual H-frame machines for the sandstone processing. The customer can choose between two different versions: more suitable for irregular stones or a sawn surface for materials with parallel layers.
