How to Hone Travertine, Terrazzo, Marble and Limestone Floors:
Read label directions and cautions before using.
NOTE: THIS PROCESS SHOULD ONLY BE USED BY EXPERIENCED, TRAINED TECHNICIANS.
We STRONGLY suggest viewing the set of DVD’s on how to hone and polish soft stones and come to the training class in Indianapolis before doing honing jobs.
The lower the grit number, the more aggressive the hone, just like with sandpaper.
Test in an inconspicuous area to determine the ease of application and desired results.
Make sure surface is clean, dry and free of waxes and coatings.
If surface is heavily soiled, pre-clean with StoneTech Klenz-All™, rinse and dry.
Mask off baseboards, carpet, etc., with protective plastic and/or blue painter’s tape.
If you are using a variety of abrasive grits, ensure that the surface is well rinsed and a new Gorilla Hogs Hair Natural Pad is used for each changeover.
Apply about 1/2 cup Honing Powder plus 1 cup clean water to stone surface.
Refinish using a hand orbital sander or weighted heavy-duty 175 rpm floor machine at 130 to 140 lbs., 175 rpm, fitted with a pad driver and a Gorilla natural hair pad.
Keep compound wet while buffing with plenty of water. Add Honing Powder as needed.
Buff area until desired level of hone is achieved.
Rinse well and use a wet vacuum or hot water extraction unit to remove all excess compound.
Clean equipment with water.
How to achieve a polished finish on marble and limestone:
