How strong is travertine- reviews long island

Tensile strength of a material is the maximum amount of stress that it can take before it cracks or breaks. There are three different types of strength that a material has they are yield, ultimate, and breaking. Yield strength is the stress the material can withstand before deformation occurs. Ultimate strength is the maximum stress a material can withstand before breaking. Breaking strength is how bad a material will break or fall apart at the point where it broke. Travertine being an all natural stone is very durable with a high tensile strength rating. That’s what makes travertine a number one choice by Gappsi for use in almost all of our projects this way we know our customers are getting the best and most reliable materials possible.
