It is then poured into large rectangular moulds which will form a block 3050 x 1250 x 1250mm sealed and put into a vacuum to take our any air bubbles, once settled it is left to dry. When dry the mould is broken open and the block of conglomerate marble is removed and cut up for slabs, tiles or anything that natural marble would be used for. There are two types of conglomerate marble, Traditional which has large pieces of the base marble mixed with approximately 30% resin, or micro which is very small pieces of base marble mixed with approximately 3% coloured resin.
