Sawn Surface

This surface is a result of sawing, when the granite, marble, sandstone & quartzite block is sawn into slabs by diamond gang saw or by diamond wire saw or by block cutter. The sawn surface is generally smooth but probably some “blade / saw markings” can be seen on the surface of the material. Sawn surface is required where non-slip surface or where low vibrancy is desired. We have exported lots of containers of sawn surface granite slabs, tiles, marble slabs tiles, kota stone, lime black limestone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of sawn surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful.

This is also very much demanding surface finish by the stone importers, in honed surface you will get a smooth but unpolished finish, in simple words the non-reflective surface is called honed surface. It is produced by using a less number of abrasives fitted in the heads of Polishing Line. We have exported lots of containers of honed surface granite slabs, tiles, marble slabs tiles, slate stone, kota stone, lime black limestone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of honed surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful. Surface of Indian Granites, Slate Stone, Quartzite, Marble, Sandstone and Limestone can be made in honed finish. Honing process is also the same as polishing but in honing the number of abrasive is reduced on the heads of Polishing Line.

Polished Surface

This is the most popular surface finish in which one side is polished by the action of the Abrasives fitted in on polishing heads, it gives a mirror like surface finish on Granite, Marble & Quartzite slabs. Polished surface is highly reflective and the least porous. Glad to tell that our company can give you Both Sides Polished Granite Slabs also in extra thickness of 4 cm, 5 cm, 6 cm , 8 cm, 10 cm….

The process of polishing - The Polishing Process starts from the stage of grinding on the rough slabs, rough slabs comes from Gang Saws. The grinding is performed on the rough slabs to calibrate / maintain the thickness of the slabs. Grinding of rough slabs being done at computerized Line Polishers and by grinding we prepare the slabs for resin application and polishing.

After grinding, the grinded / calibrated slabs are being heated in an oven to remove all moisture that the granite slabs absorbs from the Gang Saws and Line Polisher during grinding. Immediately after removal from the oven, best quality Imported Resin is applied to the surface of the slabs for perfect Polymerization.

Resin serves as a sealing agent for the stone as you know natural stone is porous and may have micro fissures. The resin fills in the inherit properties of the stone and make the slabs ready for further & final polishing. Rajasthan Stones uses only certified and tested brands of resin for all stones. Now the resined slabs put forward on the 18 heads, dual bridge, fully automated Polishing Line. Our Polishing Lines produces the mirror like surface finish that all Rajasthan Stones Customers have become accustom to. We have exported lots of containers of polished surface granite slabs, tiles, marble slabs tiles, slate stone, kota stone, lime black limestone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of polished surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful. Surface of Indian Granites, Slate stone, Marbles, Quartzite and Limestone can be made in polish finish.

Hand Split Surface or Natural Cleft Surface

This is a traditional splitting treatment in which the stone is split by hand, along its line of cleavage to open the same at the natural grain; thereby giving a surface with great character. This is the most rustic finish and it is mainly used for featured cladding, setts and cobblestones. Natural cleft surface finish can only be seen in the Indian slate & quartzite stone, Indian sandstone and some Indian limestones. A hand split surface or natural cleft surface finish makes the surface of the stone rough and uneven. The back of natural surface can be calibrated to maintain the thickness of the Indian slate & quartzite stone and sandstone. Rock Face stone comes in this category. Natural cleft surface with chiseled / hand cut edges is the main attraction of the sandstone buyers all around the world. We have exported lots of containers of natural cleft finish slate stone, sandstone, kota stone and tandur lime stone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of hand split or natural cleft surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful. Surface of Indian Slate stone, Quartzite, Sandstone and Limestone can be made in hand-split finish.

Sand Blasted Surface

By applying the sand blasting on the surface of the stone, the surface becomes non-slippery. Sandblasting is a process in which coarse-grained sand, blasted on the top surface of the stone, with the help of air compressor, it produces a natural finish surface which is smoother than the cleft surface. Sandblasted surface is mainly used for the areas in which we require engraved patterns or boarders like in landscaping, flooring, wall cladding etc. We have exported lots of containers of sand blast finish granites, sandstone, quartzite, kota stone and tandur stone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of sand blast surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful.

It is mainly done on sandstone surface, by applying the shot blasting on the surface of the sandstone, the surface becomes perfectly non-slippery. Shot blasting is a process in which the small steel shots are being used and blasted on the surface of the stone to get the desired results. Shot blasted surface give more depth while we feel the surface of the stone in comparison to sand-blast surface. We have exported lots of containers of shot-blasted sandstone, kota stone and tandur stone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of shot blast surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful. Surface of Indian Quartzite, Sandstone and Limestone can be made in shot-blast finish.

Bush Hammered surface

Bush hammering
Bush hammering is obtained by hitting the stone surface mechanically or by hand with a specific multi pointed tool. This method creates a rugged surface full of little grazes at the impact points, and it modifies the color, making it lighter. The surface becomes non-slip. This technique has been replaced by flaming and shot blasting finishing because these are faster and less costly. We have exported lots of containers of bush hammered finish granites, slate stone, sandstone, kota stone and tandur stone to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of bush hammered surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful. Surface of Indian Granites, Slate Stone, Quartzite, Sandstone and Limestone can be made in bush-hammered finish.

Flamed Surface / Thermal Surface

flamed surface granites india
A flamed surface finish is achieved by exfoliating or flacking off the outermost grains by passing a granite slab or panel under an extremely hot flame of around 1100°C that results in a rough textured surface. The crystals of granite surface exposed in this way are much darker than a sawn surface despite having no gloss. In the flaming process the exposed edges of the stones are generally not flamed just to avoid ragged edges. Because of oxidation, yellow stone materials like Kashmir gold and Madura gold become red by flaming.

In case of sandstone and limestone & some time cut to size granites flaming surface, we burnt off the surface of the stone with a high temperature apparatus like a blow torch. This also gives a contoured finish, based on the internal characteristics of the stones. Flamed surface is very popular non-slip surface finish which resembles naturally weathered stone. The rough textured surface with the help of flaming is very much suitable for slip resistant external or internal paving. We have exported lots of containers of flamed finish granites slabs and tiles to European countries. So if you are dealing with project of flamed granite surface, please contact with us, you will find it worthful. Flaming can be done by hand and by machine both. Surface of Indian Granites, Quartzite, Sandstone and Limestone can be made in flamed finish.

Brushed Surface or Leather Finish

Brushed finish is obtained by applying hard plastic or metal brushes to the stone surface. The heavily action removes the softer part of the stone and wears out the surface, giving it a look similar to that of antique finishing. In brushed finish the depth on the surface is bit less in comparison to antique finish. We have exported lots of containers of brushed finish marble, granites, slate stone, kota stone and tandur stone to European countries.
