Gris Mondariz / Crema Julia
Quarry: Boivao, Portugal
It is known by both names depending on the target market to which it is directed. It is formed by a greyish background interspersed with mega crystals of cream color. It differs more by one color or another depending on the finish which is applied.
Fire reaction type A1
Good thermical inertia
Surface treated from the sawn material. It consists of passing the slabs through a brushing process using diamond bristles with which a rough and smooth surface is achieved.
Finish on previously sawn granite. Surface treated due to thermal shock, leading to the detachment of parts of the grain from the matter, leaving a rough surface.
Completely smooth and shiny finish achieved by abrading the surface of the material and applying waxes. This is the most requested finish for countertops, because of its ease of cleaning and disinfection. By closing the pores, greater resistance to external agents is obtained.
Like the Rosa Porriño, it is recommended for façades or outdoor applications, as it works well in humid environments.
