Granite is thermally stable which leads to very slow rates of change dimensionally relative to temperature inconsistencies. Unlike metal, granite maintains its shape and flatness over a wider range of temperatures making it an ideal choice for your high precision needs. In addition, these same properties provide for an extremely hard surface which lead to excellent wear characteristics and vibration dampening. The combination of these and other physical properties allow for granite to be manufactured to very tight critical geometric tolerances.
