Ocean Black is an Indian slate which can be available as a gigantic slab as well as specific sized orders upon request. Any quantity can be supplied according to the dimensions of your need. 

Slate is naturally formed from clay and volcanic ash, and has distinct textures and colours. It is suitable for damp conditions and is distinguished by its subtle stone texturing upon touch. Because it is non-porous and low-maintenance, slate is ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and mudrooms.

The desirable features of slate are:

  • Slip resistance
  • Acid resistance
  • Frost resistance
  • Non-porous nature
  • Compact and durable
  • Exceptional resilience

No discolourations when exposed for longer periods outdoors

Suitable Applications: It can be used for a variety of applications, both interior or exterior. A few to name are flooring, wall cladding or pool coping. Dimension slate is mostly used for electrical panels, laboratory tabletops, roofing, flooring, billiard tables, tombstones, garden decorations and blackboards. Crushed slate is used as a filler, aggregate, and on composition roofing.

Daily Maintenance of Slate Flooring:

Slate flooring should be swept on a daily basis,  especially during the first few months after installation, because “spalling” may occur which means that small bits may flake off the floor. Once the tile has settled well, this should subside on its own. Use a moderate cleanser to clean your slate tile floor. You can use a natural stone cleaning product, or any other pH neutral cleaning solution devoid of lemon or vinegar. Cleanse with clean water and dry-wipe it with a soft towel or air dry.

General Dos and Don’ts for Slate Flooring

  • Do annual sealing
  • Wipe spills immediately
  • Don’t slide furniture, lift instead
  • Prevent damage from heavy foot traffic by using rugs

Use pH neutral cleaner or certified specific natural stone cleaner for mopping

Strictly avoid abrasive cleaners, bleaches or those containing lemon and vinegar for cleaning.
