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.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result in a shiny surface, highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
A honed finish is identical to the polished finish, the surface is smooth but without glare or light reflections.
Abrasive brushes under high pressure generate a touch-sensitive and smooth surface of natural stone.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
Hitting the material, with a masonry tool called a bush hammer, that generates uniformly distributed craters of different sizes over the surface of natural stone.
Brushing the slab with a range of brushes and the result is a slightly undulating surface, very soft, warm and smooth to the touch.
Exposing the surface of the stone directly to a high-temperature flame that generates a thin roughness.
