Alpinina is a limestone from Portugal with a relatively homogeneous pink color, light beige tone and thin grain. It has a high degree of hardness and is usually supplied in resin-bonded slabs.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result a shiny surface, highlights the color and properties of the 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.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters.
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.
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.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
Scratched finish is applied so that the surface exhibits a texture with straight reliefs and natural colours.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
