Back Granite - Brazil

Typhoon Bordeaux

Typhoon Bordeaux is extracted from a quarry in Brazil. For millions of years, water penetrated deep into the stone through hairline cracks, provoking oxidation. It is this process that has resulted in the richness of cream and burgundy colours visible in the stone that procures a breathaking effect worthy of a masterpiece.

In the course of the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the stone’s surface to fill part of its porosity (or pores) and natural cracks that may be apparent. This has no incident on the durabitiliy, the maintenance or the beauty of the natural stone. It is possible that certain pores are too small to contain efficiently the resin and reopen during the finishing stages. However, this does not affect the stone’s quality or beauty. Such as it is the case with many natural stones, it is recommended to apply a sealer to extend its beauty through time.
