Broadcasting Quartz

May 4, 2021

When broadcasting quartz, it should be done systematically.
Your goal is to take away the shine.

You should be wearing spike shoes and throw the sand approximately five feet in front of you. Walk the floor as you throw, but never walk in a section that has been broadcasted because your spike shoes can leave marks.

Do throw the quartz up in the air and let it rain down.

Don’t throw quartz in a downward direction. When dealing with self-levels this will create a divot and when dealing with coatings, the sand will draw more resin to that spot creating a cauliflower effect.
