Technical and Physical Characteristics:
Compression tensile strength: 2326 kg/cm2
Tensile strength after freeze-thaw cycles: 2181 kg/cm2
Unitary modulus of bending tensile strength: 143 kg/cm2
Heat expansion coefficient: 0.0050 mm/mC
Water imbibition coefficient: 0.001300
Impact strength: 72.50 cm
Frictional wear: 1.80 mm
Mass by unit of volume: 2540 kg/m3

Syenite: A coarse-grained intrusive igneous rock of the same general composition as granite but with the quartz either absent or present in relatively small amounts (<5%). The feldspar component of syenite is predominantly alkaline in character (usually orthoclase). Plagioclase feldspars may be present in small quantities, less than 10%.
