Achieved by exposing the stone to high temperatures. Indicated for outdoor areas because of its non-slip properties. Not all stones support this type of finish.
Non-slip and coarse, it is specially indicated for outdoor pavements and coatings. This type of finish lightly fades the material’s coloration.
Obtained by striking the stone with steel spheres. The finish can be thinner or thicker depending on the diameter of the spheres used.
Coarse and irregular appearance that is obtained either manually, with the use of wedges or chisels; or mechanically, with the use of a hydraulic press equipped with wedges.
Its appearance is obtained after the slabs of stone are processed according to the saw-cut process. Possessing non-slip properties, it offers more friction than the polished finish. It is the most economic type of finish because all the other types of finishes are obtained with saw-cut material.
A smooth and glossy effect enhances the materials natural coloration, as well as its specific characteristics (veins, grain…). This finish creates a totally even and flat surface that is slippery when in contact with water.
Non-slip and semi-coarse, it adds an effect that is irregular to touch, which evidences the material’s coloration. Not as rough as the brush-hammered finish.
Smooth, non-glossy finish. Highlights the true color of the materials without the gloss of the polished finish. Presents a less marked contrast between elements.
