Sandstone (CJP)

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock made of sand-like granules of minerals, rocks, or natural substances that are bound collectively by a mineral matrix, such as silica, calcium carbonate, or iron oxide.

It is regarded as a well-liked building material because of its toughness, resilience to the elements, and appealing appearance. It is often used for construction of functional prototypes, walls, and other structures.

Sandstone is used in 3D printing, specifically in color jet printing (CJP) technology. CJP is a type of 3D printing process that uses a binder material to fuse layers of powder together, creating a solid object. Sandstone powder can be used as the base material in CJP, which is then infused with a binder that hardens the material and binds it together.

CJP technology can produce full-color 3D prints, and the use of sandstone powder as the base material allows for the creation of realistic-looking objects with a grainy, sandy texture. This texture can be used to create objects such as sculptures, architectural models, and geological replicas.

Properties of materials


  • Porous with a variable density depending on porosity and mineral composition.
  • Generally lightweight with a density range of 1.85 - 2.35 g/cm³.
  • Good weathering resistance due to mineralogical and textural characteristics.
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Poor electrical conductivity.
  • Typically hard and abrasion-resistant.
  • Can be polished to a smooth, shiny finish.
  • Can have a variety of colors, including white, yellow, red, brown, and gray.
  • Resistant to chemical weathering, but can be affected by acids.



  • Construction of buildings, walls, bridges, and other structures.
  • Decorative stone in architecture and landscaping.
  • Carving of sculptures and statues.
  • Production of glass, ceramics, and other industrial products.
  • Used as a source of crushed stone for road construction and railroad ballast.
  • Applicable to the oil and gas sector as a proponent in hydraulic fracturing.
  • Used in water treatment facilities as a filtering substrate.
  • Used in the production of sharpening stones and abrasive materials.
  • Used in the creation of geological replicas and educational displays.
