This finish does not require any type of operation after the slabstone has left the sawmill. The slabstone is simply cut to the desired dimensions and washed with a pressure machine in order to remove the dust and shavings that were accumulated during the cutting or sawing operation. This finish has a slightly wrinkled surface and is only recommended for granite.
Flame jets are used to get rid of certain particles, especially quartz, which cracks under the action of heat. This finish also produces an irregular surface. Only used for granites that are not yellow, this finish alters the colouring of yellow granites, giving them a pinkish colour .
This is the most wrinkled of the industrial finishes and therefore produces the roughest surface of all. The slabstone goes to the machine on a conveyor belt and a series of bush-hammers punch holes in the material. This can be used for all types of stones. It is necessary to regulate the intensity of the movements, and the minimum thickness is 2 cm.
The finish provides more wrinkles than sawing. A jet of sand is applied to the stone, giving it a more irregular surface.
A manufacturing process similar to polishing, where it is only necessary to remove the slabstone from the polisher before it becomes glossy. It is therefore a smooth but less glossy surface.
The finish makes the surface glossy. It is therefore a smooth and easily washable surface.
Finishing that gives greater roughness that flamed and bush-hammered smaller than the bulk peak.
