Polished, honed, flamed, bush-hammered, and sandblasted are the popular surface finishing of Mongolia Black granite, customized surface treatment is welcome, we can test for you.
Different surface finishing has a different function, polishing is the best way to show the solid colour, the surface is smooth, it is most popular, it can be used everywhere, such as flooring, wall cladding, skirting, countertops, headstones, etc.
Honed surface, also called matt finishing, give people another feeling of elegance, the stone colour becomes grey, the surface is smooth, too, but not as shiny as polishing. Australia customers like this finishing so much, it has a little anti-slip function, usually used for bathroom flooring, sometimes for countertops (benchtops).
Flamed is the second most popular processing method, second only to the polished. Some clients call it heating or burning. After flaming, the stone surface becomes rough, it is very helpful for anti-slip, popularly used for outdoor flooring, steps, etc. The thickness should be over 1.5cm for flamed finishing because, under extremely high temperature, the stone becomes fragile, easily broken, thinner the stone is, more breakage will be.
After flame, we will brush the stone surface one or two times, to make it be friendly our naked hand touching and remove the rust dirt. If it is brushed by over 5 times, the surface will become smooth, we call it leather finishing because it is touched like the leather, this surface processing is most used for bathroom flooring and tabletops.
Bush-Hammered is another surface treatment for the anti-slip function, after bush-hammered, the stone surface will be full of shallow and small holes, same as the flamed finishing, this processing is widely used for outdoor flooring and steps. Because the stone will be under the very high-pressure impact, it has a higher requirement for the thickness, it should be 2.5cm up.
Sandblasted is similar to bush-hammered, but its holes are much smaller and the quantity is larger, its touch feeling is more comfortable, because of the different processing procedure, the stone with under 2.5cm thickness can be sandblasted, too. These surface treatment products can be used for bathroom flooring.
