Pedras Salgadas is a granite from Portugal with a light grey color, medium grain, two mica and feldspat megacrystals. It is suited for uses in interior decoration, coverings, cladding and other stonework.
Brushing the slab with a range of brushes and the result
is a slightly undulating surface, very soft, warm and smooth to the touch.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air
gun and generates very small craters that highlight the color of the stone.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
Hitting the material, manually or mechanically, with a masonry tool called a bush hammer and generates uniformly distributed craters of different sizes over the surface of natural stone.
Exposing the surface of the stone directly to a high temperature flame and generates a thin roughness and protects the material for outdoor installation.
Smooth surface using abrasive brushes under high pressure. The colours of the natural stone become more vivid.
A honed finish refers to any level that is less than
polished and therefore the surface is smooth but dull or slightly reflective.
Shiny surface, with almost zero porosity and highlights
the color and properties of the natural stone.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
