Tuff Tiles & Slabs

( 66 )

Tuff Stone is a fragile and porous stone as it is a type of rock made from volcanic ash. Therefore, it is not possible to cut it into large layers. It can be used in wall coverings, usually cut into tiles. It is not suitable for use on kitchen counters or floor coverings. Tuff stone is generally preferred in masonry and garden arrangements.

Questions & Answers on Tuff Tiles & Slabs

What is the difference between tuff and pumice?

Posted by Visitor

The ash is very fine grained, so only the rock fragments and pumice are identifiable. A rock with a pyroclastic texture is termed a tuff if the largest fragments are less than 2.5 inches long, a volcanic breccia if the fragments are larger.
