Rajah Slate Tiles for Flooring & Walls
Rajah slate used on the kitchen floor of a rural home at Cobbity, NSW. A gloss sealer was applied to protect the slate from spillages, make cleaning easier and enhance the natural colours of the slate.

Indian Rajah Floor Slate - Characteristics
Rajah has a variety of colours - orange, ochre, pink, purple, green & grey. It is a softer, more porous slate than our other slates so it is best suited to internal areas.
It is not suitable for wet areas e.g. shower areas or uncovered outside areas, unless sealed and regularly maintained.
A choice of edging is available: straight edges or chipped edges, the latter giving a very natural appearance once laid.

Slate Flooring - Natural Feel & Look - very Eco Friendly Too!
A measure of the environmental credentials of a building product is the amount of processing that is required before it is fixed to a building. On that basis this slate is a clear winner. This slate has a natural split surface which means it is split along natural cleavage lines and does not require expensive, energy demanding, processing machinery to saw it. However, It does mean the thickness of the material varies a bit - naturally!
Rajah Slate Tiles - Colour & Texture Enhanced with Natural Split Surface
Rajah slate splits naturally along planes revealing pallets of vivid pink and purple colour not seen in stone with processed surfaces. The topography of the surface is intricate and has character, depth and grain - as you will see in the image below. Flakes of slate that are occasionally seen are evidence that the stone is high enough quality to split naturally and that it is genuinely slate.. The flakes if present, are easily removed as explained in the FAQ section.
To Seal or Not To Seal slate?
There are three very practical reasons for sealing:
When used indoors, some people prefer the colour enhancement provided by surface sealers. The application of a surface sealer reduces dust and makes cleaning is easier.
Sealants protect the slate from oil and grease stains especially around food preparation areas. Unless these are wiped up quickly, they will leave marks on an unsealed surface.
Rajah ocasionally has small "freckles" of iron compounds that can rust over time, if exposed to salt air in outdoor situations. The application of a surface sealer for slate used outdoors is therefore recommended as it will prevent any discolouration or possible pitting.
