What is exposed aggregate concrete?
In exposed-aggregate finishes, the aggregates (the stones and/or sands) near the surface are revealed; these would otherwise be concealed by a thin layer of cement. The Exposé range is created through a process resulting in the stone being exposed which highlights the natural elements of the stone. There are a number of techniques for producing exposed aggregate finishes, each creating a different and distinctive appearance.
