Moleanos is a Portuguese limestone with light beige coloured background and a slight greyish tonality, with thin to medium grain and disperse brownish fine spots.
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.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result in a shiny surface, highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
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.
Scratched finish is applied so that the surface exhibits a texture with straight reliefs and natural colours.
