Quarry: O Porriño, Galicia
Granite from our quarries located in O Porriño. Medium-sized dark-grained pink material with years of tradition in the façades, floors, and countertops of thousands of houses both locally, nationally and in other parts of the world.
We can find it in rough format on house façades, honed or bush hammered on exterior floors or polished on kitchen countertops. It is a material very appreciated in outdoor elements due to its high resistance to inclement weather. We extract it fist-hand, we elaborate it directly in one of our granite companies (Granitos Cabaleiro SA or Cabaleiro Nogueira SL, according to the thickness indicated by the client) and we ship it from the seaports of Vigo and Marin to all over the world.
Fire reaction type A1
Good thermal 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.
Surface treated with a pneumatic hammer and diamond bushes. The result is a sandy, uniform surface with a rustic appearance.
