With a medium hardness, it’s frequently used for cladding, pavements, interior decor, street furniture and other stoneworks.
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
Shiny surface, with almost zero porosity and highlights the color and properties of the natural 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.
A honed finish refers to any level that is
less than polished and therefore the
surface is smooth but dull or slightly reflective.
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.
