Brazilian Slate

Quality Brazilian roofing slate, Available in Ireland from LBSLBS offer the finest quality Brazilian slate & natural slate roofing products available in Ireland and Ireland. Brazilian Slate is now one of the highest quality roof slates available in the Global roofing market. The Brazilian Slate industry has made a major impact on the Irish roofing market over the last 10 years. The Slates are mined from the Minas Gerais region, an area rich in geology located between Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro.

LBS have worked with Brazilian quarries over a number of years to source the highest quality Brazilian Slate products which we can offer in a variety of beautiful green and graphite colours. The LBS Brazilian Slates are unusually strong, durable and do not contain damaging iron or quartz content. There are a large number of Brazilian Slates on offer in the market but it is crucial that prospective customers realise that a large number of this product is not suitable for roofing slate and more suitable for use as flooring tiles. Our testing has revealed that these can have a high calcium carbonate content, high water absorption properties and many do not pass the traditional acid immersion test. LBS have researched the Brazilian Slate industry in great detail and we are confident that the Brazilian product which we offer – the Rio slate – is the best option available from Brazil, and is the ONLY certified Brazilian slate on the market!

Brazilian Slate is a hard stone and should be treated with care when fixing and we recommend cutting with a disc machine, and hook rather than nail fixing.

Brazilian Slate also offers a substantial cost saving on Spanish Slate and Welsh Slate alternatives, making it an attractive option for our customers.

The LBS Brazilian Slate range includes:

  • Rio Green
  • Rio Graphite
