Many natural stones are delicate and
frequently lack long-term endurance. If a stone client isn't
happy with the looks of their stone because of or attributable
to significant wear or improper maintenance procedures, The
Marble Guy can style a restoration program fits the consumer needs.
Stone restoration is a component of the stone maintenance cycle.
It consists of 3 stages: Grinding, honing and polishing. Every
stage is processed with the utilization of diamond abrasives.
These abrasives are measured in grits. Lower grit diamonds can
take away and surface scratches, lippage, etches, and traffic
patterns. Middle grit diamonds can and will smooth and hone the
surface. Higher grit diamonds will polish the surface.
Continuous water flow is employed as a lubricant for the
This method is comparable to sanding wood. The coarse grit
sandpaper removes the scratches and therefore the fine grit
smoothes the stone.
Diamond grinding is critical to get rid of and flatten the
lippage from uneven tiles and to get rid of deep surface
scratches. This can be completed with a thirty, 70, and a
hundred and twenty grit diamond. Higher grit removes the marks
of the previous grit.
Honing is accomplished with a 220 or 400 grit diamond. Honing
entails smoothing out the bottom surface, therefore leaving the
stone while not leaving a reflection, mirrored image or shine.
Polishing needs the employment of 600, 800, 1800, and even 3500
grit diamonds. They brighten the surface by sharpening the
crystals that will increase the reflectivity. the higher the
grit, the higher the shine. it's imperative to use all of the
diamonds in succession. Skipping can leave scratches and stop
the required shine. 5 to 6 passes per set of diamonds is
critical to successfully complete the restoration method.
