Salt & Pepper, or G603, is a fine-grained, gray granite from China used in many large-scale projects around the world.
It is widely used in the construction industry primarily because (1.) it is the cheapest granite available in the market and (2.) it is easily available from most suppliers.
Salt & Pepper is comprised of black, white, and silver specks evenly distributed throughout its surface. Slight variations occur, however, with some slabs having smaller or larger grains than others, or some having a lighter or darker background than the rest.
It is commonly used on flooring or cladding applications, especially on projects like airports or malls.
It can accept most types of surface treatments to accommodate any indoor or outdoor applications. Indoors, Salt & Pepper can be polished to bring out a smooth and shiny surface. On the other hand, it can be flamed or bush hammered to obtain a highly-textured, non-slip surface finish for poolsides and pavements.
