Recon finishes

Polished/Honed:
 automated polishers ensure a smooth, uniform appearance – polished surfaces shed water and dirt easily and need minimal maintenance

Acid-Etched:
 light washdown with dilute acid solution gives panel a lightly textured stone finish that resembles limestone or sandstone

Grit-Blasted: air-driven or grit exposes aggregate abrasively and gives a deeper texture than acid etc

Mini-Coat: chemical retarder produces a light, uniform exposed-aggregate finish

Exposed Aggregate: 
mould is pre-painted with retarder which prevents the cement paste of the mix at the surface from setting properly; this excess is then washed off, exposing the top surface of the base aggregate
