Stones & Finishes Natural stone is gaining fame in recent years and people choose stonework for their flooring and marble for their bathrooms more often nowadays. There is a variation of natural stone types and in order to enhance the beauty of the stone and improve some of its qualities, the surface of the tiles is treated to get a unique finishing.


Types: To facilitate your choice, we are going to present you with a short guide on the different natural stone qualities and finishes. We can categorize them mainly in four groups: • Natural finishing • Mechanical finishing • Chemical finishing • Impact finishing


Natural finishing The natural finish is essentially the absence of treatment. The stone is sold as removed from the mine, once cut into the desired format. The final look depends completely on the features of the stone and its exploitation. This finish is appropriated for cladding and cobbles.


Mechanical finishing This type of finishing includes different processes that can change the natural stone surface in order to achieve or enhance some of the tile qualities. There are three main types: • Honed finish • Polished finish • Satin finish


Chemical finishing The texture and look of natural stone can be changed by applying chemicals to its superficial thus creating a chemical finish. This type of finishing can be joint with other types of stone treatment and can be used on tiles that are already made and even installed. There are three main types: • Epoxy treated • Meshed • Protective treatment


Impact finishing This is the largest group offering a great variety of textures, most of which are quite popular. Finishing is a manufacturing process whose purpose is to get a surface with acceptable characteristics for the particular application of the product being manufactured.
