Cipher leaf

Asbestos products have found quite widely used in the construction sector. Leaf slate – one of the most common materials made of asbestos. Plumbing cabs, partitions are made from it. It is used to close communications, external and interior decoration of industrial buildings and premises, manufacture window sills and jumpers between windows.

Leaf slate is used as a material for the manufacture of formwork when pouring monolithic structures. In recent decades, it has been used in the production of ventilated facades. This is not all areas of application of this material.

Main characteristics.

Leaf slate has a number of good operational qualities that allow you to use in a wide variety of fields. It is fireproof and this finds the use in the manufacture of fire partitions. Resistance to aggressive environments and substances is in demand in chemical industries. It is cheap – the device of partitions from it is economically profitable, especially when it comes to temporary structures. It is light and easy to install. Large areas of sheets allow in a short time and without large material costs to build rapidly vegetable buildings and structures for various purposes.


Two types of leaf slate are produced – pressed and unprotected. They differ not only in the technology of their manufacture, but also by technical characteristics.

Pressed sheets are more durable, have good fire resistance, but the worst heat – and sound insulation properties. It is used as a material for enclosing structures, the device of fire -retardant jumpers and partitions.

Unprotected leaf slate less dense material. It preserves heat better and serves as a more reliable protection against noise and extraneous sounds. The main area of ​​its application is the device of protective layers of various purposes.


The production of slate is carried out on special technological equipment that allows you to produce sheets of various sizes. For manufacture, a mixture is used, which includes thin -fiber chrysolite asbestos from 8 to 10 percent, Portland cement and water. Asbestos fibers reinforce the sheet and give it the necessary strength. Asbestos is well opposed to fire, which gives the products from it fire resistance.

Two types of sheets are produced pressed and unprotected. The main difference in technology is that the pressed slate is subjected to pressure, which gives it additional strength compared to the unprofitable material. Higher strength allows you to use it as a structural material.


Given a fairly wide area of ​​application of the material, the sheets of the slate are produced by various sizes. Depending on the operating conditions and loads, the thickness of the sheets is from 6 to 30 millimeters.

The standard sizes of the sheet of the slate are as follows: 1500 by 1000, 1750 by 1130, 2000 by 1500, 3000 by 1500 millimeters. By order, sheets and other sizes can be made. Sellers of a flat slate often provide a service to their customers on cutting sheets in size to the specified customer. By the way, the price for one sheet of slate depends, first of all, on its size and manufacturing technology. The pressed material is much more expensive than the unprofitable.


The price for one sheet of slate depends on its size and seller conditions. The cost also depends on what kind of slate it is – pressed or unnecessary, on the volume of the party and the cost of delivery.

So, for example, an unprotected material of 3,000 by 1500 mm costs from 650 to 1100 rubles, depending on the thickness of the sheet. And the same size of the pressed sheet costs from 800 to 3450 rubles. Each region has suppliers and sellers of such products.

If it is necessary to purchase this material, it is best to find it using the Internet. It is enough to dial in the search engine “Slavif price per sheet” and it will give dozens of items of trading organizations that sell a similar product in your region.
