The value of density range from around 2.7 to 3 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³), depending on the source and quality of the stone. This high density makes Armani Grey a sturdy material, which is ideal for applications that require durability and strength. Additionally, the high density of this material makes it resistant to water penetration and staining, further enhancing its durability and longevity.
This material has a moderate to high level of abrasion resistance. The exact level of resistance can vary depending on factors such as the specific quarry source and the finishing process. However, Pietra Grey is a durable and long-lasting material that can withstand normal wear and tear.
