Aqua Grantique™ Polished

The polishing process transforms the stone from a dull sawn surface to a very high gloss that is reflective. This texture brings out the fine details of the character in the natural stone.

Aqua Grantique™ Brushed

Produced on the Simec Polishing Line, we use specially designed diamond bristle brushes to achieve this texture. This process removes surface area slightly unevenly leaving a smooth satin feel with subtle concave and convex areas which follow the natural mineral and veining of the stone.

Aqua Grantique™ Shot-Blast

This process propels thousands of small stainless steel shot onto the surface of the stone which erodes and dulls the surface. This process can remove larger areas if the stone is less dense in certain areas. Shot-blast texture provides a slip-resistant surface.

Aqua Grantique™ Thermal

A specially designed machine applies a hot flame to the surface of the stone. The flame’s heat can reach 1,800ºF. This action heats the crystals in the stone and pops the stone’s surface creating a slightly rough texture with a low sheen. This process also enhances the color of the stone while leaving a slip-resistant surface. The thermal process tends to pull a crimson tint from the Cambrian Cream material, this is unavoidable.
