    VIDEO: How to Hone and Polish Marble, Limestone, Travertine, etc.

    Video shows how to remove scratches and dull areas from Marble and other soft stones and bring the surface to a high polish shine.

    How to Hone Travertine, Terrazzo, Marble and Limestone Floors:

    1. The lower the grit number, the more aggressive the hone, just like with sandpaper.
    2. Test in an inconspicuous area to determine the ease of application and desired results.
    3. Make sure surface is clean, dry and free of waxes and coatings.
    4. If surface is heavily soiled, pre-clean with StoneTech Klenz-All.
    5. Mask off baseboards, carpet, etc., with protective plastic and/or blue painter’s tape.
    6. 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.
    7. Apply about 1/2 cup Honing Powder plus 1 cup clean water to stone surface.
    8. Refinish using a hand orbital sander or weighted heavy-duty 175 rpm floor machine at 130 to 140 lbs., 175 rpm, fitted with a drive block and natural hair pad.
    9. Keep compound wet while buffing with plenty of water. Add Honing Powder as needed.
    10. Buff area until desired level of hone is achieved.
    11. Rinse well and use a wet vacuum or hot water extraction unit to remove all excess compound.
    12. Clean equipment with water.

    How to achieve a polished finish on marble and limestone:

    Use successively higher grits of Honing Powder to close the face of the stone and follow with StoneTech Polishing Powder as applicable.

    Honing Powder Coverage: Depending on the type of stone, surface texture, and level of hone desired, coverage is approximately 800 - 1,200 sq. ft. per jar.

    Typical Honing Charge: At least $1.00 per square foot for each hone.

    Proper care of honed and polished stone such as marble: To maintain the stone's natural beauty, seal the surface with Sta-Clene, StoneTech Stone Sealer, Impregnator Pro™ or BulletProof™. For maintenance cleaning, use StoneTech Revitalizer™ or StoneTech All Purpose Stone & Tile Cleaner.
