Finishing is a manufacturing process whose purpose isto obtain a surfacewith adequate characteristics for the particular application of the product being manufactured. This includes but is not limited to the cosmetic product. In some cases,the finishing process can have the additional purpose of getting the product to meet dimensionalspecifications.the finishes are chosen differently depending on the area where the stoneis mounted.Yes, the slabs comes in Agricin with different type of finishingbecauseneed special machine to make the finishing.
Polishing is achieved with almost zero porosity, emphasizing the highestlevels of structure, color and texture. This "closed pore" finish, gives the stone more resistancetoattack by external agents, a resistance that can be increased by various protective treatments.This is mainly applied to marble and granite, and rocks that are verycompact and have a high degree of crystallinity.Polishing is achieved by abrasion through which different particle sizesbecome finer, giving the stone a brighter appearance. A diamond abrasive is mostly used today, whichshortens time and gets dramatic results, while minimizing the labor force for people and machines.
Rubbing is achieved by a process similar to polishing abrasion, but withoutthe resultant shine. Large production machines are also called polishing trains, and these areequipped with multiple heads that mount different abrasive grain per head and rotate onfixed benches along the process chain.For small areas, this can be performed manually by means of articulated armpolishers. These achieve flat, smooth surfaces, dull and without any visible mark,provided the tone is darker than other terminal, highlighting the structure, texture and colors of the stone. This process is often applied to polished stones that do not reach thenecessary degree of crystallization, often in the case of limestone andsandstone.We could say that rubbing down is the first step to achieving brightness. This finish is applied in compact rock, with a minimum degree of hardness.As the polishing is achieved by abrasion, and in these cases it is most common to use conventional abrasives such assilicon carbide.
The leather finish provides a flat and rough, which transmits a uniquesensory perception to the touch for its beauty and finesse.In same time , WATERPROOF TREATMENT OF STONE means other thing and aimsto protect the stone , but let her breatheThe Natural stone waterproofing: this is what it does Natural stones suchas granite and slate are extremely popular for use in the home and garden. Untreated, they are very sensitive as work surfaces orfloor coverings. If its surface is completely sealed,with a paint coat, the natural stone loses its valuable and attractiveproperties. The waterproofing of natural stone is a successful compromise in order toimprove the resistance, make the stone easier to care for and at the same time preserve its natural beautyReduction of stainingEasy care color intensifying propertiesProtection against soiling and weatheringFood safe protective waterproofing for the kitchenHow does waterproofing protect the natural stone?Waterproofed porcelain stoneware and natural stone does much more than justprotect against dirt and contamination.
