Brazilian Slate – Rio Graphite

Rio Graphite Brazilian Slate, Brazilian Roofing Slate, Black Brazilian Slate, Brazilian Slate IrelandOne of the more popular types of slate available from our Brazilian Slate range, our Brazilian Rio Black Graphite Slate originates from the beautiful Minas Gerais region of Brazil.

Renowned for its strength and durability, this slate also features a flat, clean surface. In addition, subtle natural tone variations make it a truly unique type of slate, and an ideal choice for adding character to almost any building.

The thickness of our Brazilian Rio Black Slate remains extremely consistent- between 5 and 7mm. This ensures that minimal sorting and grading is required. Available now in prime grade, in sizes 50 x 25cm (500 x 250mm) and 60 x 30cm (600 x 300mm), LBS’s Black Rio Graphite Slate is a versatile choice for many roofing projects.

Unlike most other slate that is essentially metamorphic stone, Brazilian Rio Black Slate is sedimentary stone. This difference means that it is much harder and denser than many other types of slate available. It also has extremely low calcium carbonate levels. Thus, extra care and attention is required when fixing. LBS recommend that you cut the slates using a disc machine, and employ hook fixing to secure the slates, rather than nail fixing.
