Other textured finishes

Turf drag finish
Turf drag surface finish is produced by trailing an inverted section of artificial turf across the surface on a device that controls time and rate. Striations are 1.53mm deep depending on the number of blades in the mat.

Hessian (burlap) drag finish
Hessian or burlap drag surface finish is produced by trailing moistened coarse hessian across the surface on a device that controls time and rate. Striations are 0.51mm deep.

Tine finish
Tine surface finish is generally produced using a mechanical device with a tine head (metal rake) that moves across the surface. Texture depends on the tine spacing and regularity. Striation depths are typically in the range 36mm with width of up to 3mm.
