Mosaic is a type of architectural decoration material. Due to its small particle size, flexible color matching, and easier pattern arrangement, it was early used by European designers with great ingenuity for the decoration of indoor steps, platforms, bathrooms, etc., and a small amount was also used for indoor hall floors.
Marble mosaics are made from natural stone through special processes and do not contain any chemical dyes.
It retains the unique ancient and rustic colors of the stone itself well, due to the small unit area of a single mosaic and the wide variety of colors.
The stone is decorated with metal embellishments, and the irregular combination of floral design breaks away from conventional design, truly eye-catching.
It can fully express the designer’s style and inspiration, fully showcasing its unique artistic charm and personality.
Exquisite and delicate stone, each piece is carefully selected, and each piece carries its own radiance. By no means uniform, always unique and unique
Even a small wall can create a unique retro beauty in the entire space, enhancing its luxurious and fashionable feel.
While being high-end and elegant, it is also not easily outdated, with different texture depths, giving a sense of tension and sophistication, which is now deeply loved by young people.
In today’s fast-paced daily life, we even need some slow and meticulous attention, allowing the temperature of our palms to condense bit by bit, accumulating a lasting energy station that will flow freely in the future.
The decorative effect of the traditional mosaic paving method
From the mosaic ground of existing old buildings, we can summarize three characteristics:
Firstly, the smoothness is good, that is, whether it is the treadmill platform, bathroom floor, or the entire floor of the hall, the flatness is very good. The height difference of mosaic particles is small, which is due to the smoothness of the base surface, consistent particle thickness, and proper paving;
Secondly, the gaps are uniform, meaning that the gaps between particles are basically the same size, and the gaps are filled with full filling. The eye-catching gaps highlight each mosaic, which is attributed to the standardization of the particle layout board;
Thirdly, the strength is good. Looking at the indoor mosaic floor of old buildings, after decades or even hundreds of years, it is rare to see a whole piece or even particles falling off. This fully confirms that the overall reinforcement of the gaps ensures the firmness of the components, and also demonstrates the advantages of traditional installation and reinforcement methods of mosaics
Characteristics of Small Particle Marble Mosaics
In terms of current requirements for decoration and material selection, exquisite and delicate mosaic patterns are usually assembled using 1cm long, wide, and 0.5-era thick small particle marble mosaics as the substrate for the mosaic. However, currently, LCM-sized marble mosaics have inherent defects: firstly, there is a significant difference in particle thickness due to stone cutting errors, with a maximum difference of 0.3cm in particle thickness on a board surface;
Secondly, the gaps are not clear, and many particles are almost densely spliced, even if there are gaps, they are of varying sizes; The third is that the bonding material used for the back mesh is oily adhesive. More than half of the mesh holes in the gaps of the back mesh are sealed by the back adhesive, and cement mortar cannot be squeezed into the mosaic gaps from the back. All of these directly affect the effectiveness of decoration and the strength of components after installation.
