- Sep 29, 2018 -

Polish: high gloss on surface.Polishing may last a long time or not, mainly depending on the type of stone.Granite, marble, and limestone are usually polished and require different maintenance to maintain their sheen.

Honed: the honed surface looks "soft" with obvious scratches and requires little care.Marble, limestone and SLATE are suitable for polishing.

Acid washing: small corrosion marks on the surface.The surface of the Acid washing is more rustic than the polished surface.Most stones are Acid washing, but the most common are marble and limestone.Acid washing is also a way to soften the sheen of granite.

Chiseled: rough surface.After preliminary cutting, further processing of the stone to eliminate obvious saws, but its effect is not up to the effect after polishing.Granite, marble, and limestone can be treated this way, usually in a customized manner.

Flamed: rough surface.This kind of surface is mainly used for interior decoration, such as floor or commercial building.A flamed surface is formed by rapid cooling after being heated at a high temperature.The burning surface is usually granite.

Natural split: rough surface, but not as rough as fire.This surface treatment is usually done by hand cutting or in a mine chisel to expose the natural split surface of the stone.This surface treatment is mainly used for SLATE.

Tumbled: the surface is smooth or slightly rough, the corners are smooth and broken.There are several ways to achieve this roll effect.A 20 mm brick can be rolled in a machine, a 3 cm brick can be rolled and split into two pieces.Marble and limestone are the preferred materials for tumbling processing.

Brushing: the surface is old.The process is to scrub the surface of the stone, mimicking its natural wear and tear.
