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.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters that highlight the colour of the stone.
Shiny surface, with almost zero porosity and 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.
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.
Smooth surface using abrasive brushes under high pressure. The colours of the natural stone become more vivid.
Stone is scraped so that the surface exhibits a texture with straight reliefs and natural colors.
Exposing the surface of the stone directly to a high-temperature flame and generates a thin roughness and protects the material for outdoor installation.
A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore the surface is smooth but dull or slightly reflective.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
