Blasting stone: decorative and technical processing of stone surfaces

Sandblasting stone

Creative and functional surface design on stone has become indispensable. Be it inscription, decoration or surface structuring - sandblasting refines this timeless material.

Different stones with different features for various purposes

Beyond the classical writing board with deep-engraved letters, many other techniques have been developed. The possibilities now are almost endless, and it is up to the designer whether he wants to create something truly unique, taking advantage of what this unique material offers. Surface matted in multiple depths, engraved to any technical detail, whether as inscription on memorial tablets, or as a functional anti-slip strip on floor slabs - be creative.

Technical information and processing details

Granite, marble und sandstones are just a few types of stones that we engrave and mark through sandblasting, and subsequently coat with bronze, gold or silver respectively paint in color (e.g. commemorative plaques, headstones etc.). It is also possible to clean rough and matte stones through sandblasting - or even remove heavy dirt.

Whereas for sandstones a weathering effect can be a desirable feature, which can be achieved through blasting. Bright polished surfaces can be blasted to make them matte and nonskid. Just like with glass, the same applies obviously for letterings and logos. Technical blasting, e.g. hole blasting for installation cutouts etc. 

Note: It must be emphasized that when blasting on thicker materials, the wall of the hole should never trend in a 90 degree angle to the surface, but, depending on the material, taper slightly. No liability will be assumed for damages to these parts.
