Agglomerated stone - Terminology and classification

This document specifies the terminology and classification of the agglomerated stone products. Agglomerated stone products are industrial products mainly made of hydraulic cement, resin or mixture of both, stones and other additions. They are industrially manufactured in geometrical shapes at fixed plants by moulding techniques. They are put on the market in the form of rough blocks, rough slabs, slabs, tiles, dimensional stone works, and any other cut to size products.
All other agglomerated stones products not intended to be used for flooring, wall finishes and assimilated uses (like drainage channels, structural elements, etc.) are excluded from the field of this standard.
This European Standard is not applicable to terrazzo tiles covered by EN 13748-1 [1] and EN 13748-2 [2].

Künstlich hergestellter Stein - Terminologie und Klassifizierung

Dieses Dokument legt die Terminologie und Klassifizierung von Produkten aus künstlich hergestelltem Stein
fest. Bei Produkten aus künstlich hergestelltem Stein handelt es sich um industriell hergestellte Produkte, die
überwiegend aus hydraulischem Zement, Harz oder aus einer Mischung aus beiden sowie aus Steinen und
anderen Zusätzen bestehen. Sie werden industriell in festen Produktionsanlagen mithilfe von Gießverfahren in
geometrischen Formen gefertigt. Auf dem Markt werden sie als Rohblöcke, Rohplatten, Platten, Fliesen,
Formsteine und als andere zugeschnittene Produkte angeboten.
Alle übrigen Produkte aus künstlich hergestelltem Stein, die nicht für Fußbodenbeläge, Wandflächen und
vergleichbare Anwendungen verwendet werden sollen, (wie zum Beispiel Entwässerungskanäle, Bauelemente
usw.) fallen nicht in den Anwendungsbereich dieser Norm.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt nicht für Terrazzoplatten, die in den Anwendungsbereich von EN 13748-1 [1]
und EN 13748-2 [2] fallen.

Pierre agglomérée - Terminologie et classification

Le présent document spécifie la terminologie et la classification des produits en pierre agglomérée. Les
produits en pierre agglomérée sont des produits industriels fabriqués principalement à base de ciment
hydraulique, de résine ou d’un mélange des deux, de pierres et d’autres produits d’addition. Ils sont fabriqués
industriellement en formes géométriques dans des installations fixes au moyen de techniques de moulage. Ils
sont mis sur le marché sous forme de blocs ou de dalles découpés grossièrement, de dalles ou de carreaux
finis, de pierres taillées sur mesure et autres produits coupés sur mesure.
Tous les autres produits en pierre agglomérée qui ne sont pas destinés à être utilisés pour les revêtements de
sol, de mur et autres usages similaires (tels que réseaux d’évacuation, éléments structurels, etc.) sont exclus
du domaine d’application de la présente norme.
La présente Norme européenne n’est pas applicable aux carreaux de mosaïque de marbre, qui font l’objet
des normes EN 13748-1 [1] et EN 13748-2 [2].

All other agglomerated stones products not intended to be used for flooring, wall finishes and similar uses (like drainage channels, structural elements, etc.) are excluded from the field of this standard. This European Standard is not applicable to terrazzo tiles covered by EN 13748-1 [1] and EN 13748-2 [2]. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 12670:2001, Natural stone — Terminology 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in EN 12670:2001 and the following apply. 3.1 agglomerated stone
industrial product manufactured from a mixture of aggregates of various sizes and natures (generally coming from natural stones), sometimes mixed with other compatible materials, additions and binder NOTE The binder could be resin, hydraulic cement or mixture of both (in various percentages). Aggregates consist of natural and/or recycled stones and/or different additions such as crushed ceramics, glass, mirrors. They are bound via resin and filler or cement and water or mixture of both. The manufacturing process is irreversible. 3.2
agglomerated stone product semi-finished product manufactured from agglomerated stone in form of blocks or slabs, which can be transformed in finished slabs, tiles, vanity tops or similar elements.
NOTE Under the agglomerated stones term fall architectural elements, complementary to products for flooring and wall finishes, which can or cannot be subsequently cut to size. Products manufactured by the technology of the agglomerated stones could be impregnated by suitable chemicals in order to waterproof/seal open pores. The products can be also sealed with putty in order to fill in the surface defects accidentally present in some natural stones and other aggregates. 3.3
classification of agglomerated stones
classification according to the type of the binder and the nature of the aggregates of the agglomerated stone product NOTE If the volume of the binding material is greater than the volume of the aggregates, the resulting material cannot be classified as agglomerated stone.
classification according to the type of the binder
classification according to the binder of the agglomerated stone product, i.e. resin, hydraulic cement or mixtures of resin and cement NOTE Agglomerated stone product can be bound by resin (e.g. thermosetting resin) or by other suitable organic or inorganic polymer which can be irreversibly hardened Agglomerated stone product can be bound by hydraulic cement (white or grey). Agglomerated stone product can be bound by mixtures of resin and cement.
classification according to the mineral nature of the aggregates
classification according to the mineral nature of the agglomerated stone product, i.e. carbonate nature, silica nature or carbonate and silica nature NOTE Agglomerated stone product can be constituted of aggregates of carbonate nature e.g. marble, limestone, etc. Agglomerated stone product can be constituted of aggregates of silica nature e.g. quartz, sandstone, granite, etc.
Agglomerated stone product either of carbonate or of silica nature can contain aggregates such as crushed ceramics, glass, mirrors, etc. Agglomerated stone product can be constituted of aggregates of both carbonate and silica nature. 4 Terminology of agglomerated stones 4.1 Terms of fragmented aggregates 4.1.1
natural aggregate
mixture of natural stone fragments which are derived either from incoherent rocks (sand) or fragmented coherent carbonate type rocks or silica-type rocks (granite, quartzite, etc.), and whose maximum linear size may be either 150 mm or more
