Travertine Tiles Market: Introduction
Travertine tiles are a form of limestone that is created by the mineral spring, especially by hot springs. Travertine tiles have a concentric and fibrous appearance and are available in tan, white, cream as well as rusty colours. Travertine tiles are created by the process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate. Travertine tiles are mostly used in Italy as building materials. Travertine tiles are terrestrial sedimentary rocks that are formed by the precipitation of carbonate minerals in the surface of water, in the ground or in hot springs. The word “travertine” is an Italian word that is derived from the Latin word “tiburtinus of tibur.” Modern travertine tiles are formed by the mixing of geothermally heated supersaturated alkaline waters with pCO2. In hot spring, travertine tiles contain aragonite as well as calcite. Aragonite is created when the temperature is hot and calcite is created when the temperature is cool. Travertine tiles are basically white in colour and are also found in other colours such as yellow and brown due to the impurities contained by them.
Natural travertine tiles are formed in various parts of the globe such as in Italy. Travertine tiles are also formed in Guidonia Montecelio and Tivoli. In Turkey, travertine tiles are formed in Pamukkale and in the U.S., travertine tiles formed in Yellowstone National Park. In addition, travertine tiles are formed naturally in several places around the world.
Travertine tiles are most commonly used in building materials. Most of the Roman buildings, which include temples, monuments, aqueducts, bath complexes and amphitheaters such as the Colosseum, are built with travertine tiles. Most of the building in the world are built using travertine tiles. Some of the notable buildings that are created by travertine tiles are the Getty Centre that is situated in California, Los Angeles and Shell-Hausin in Berlin. The travertine tiles used in Shell-Haus and Getty Centre were imported from Guidonia and Tivoli.
Travertine tile are among the most frequently used stones in modern architecture. Travertine tiles are most commonly used for walls, cladding, facades and flooring.
