Green Marble and Warping

Green Marble and Warping

Green marbles, can warp and cup when set with the mixture of Portland cement and water or mastics.  When specifying stone, always check with the stone supplier for recommended setting materials.  Green marble is very sensitive to moisture and a condition known as hysterisis.  When water enters the stone, it causes the marble to release any internal stress, causing it to warp.  Warped green marble can easily be avoided by using the correct thinset, void of water.


Epoxy thinset (or mortar) is a mixture of epoxy resins, epoxy hardener, and sand that are used for green marbles.  Since epoxy thinsets are 100% solids, they contain no water.
