Grinding

Grinding is the process by which a surface is sanded by the use of abrasives diamond discs to remove a layer of the stone of which is badly damaged. This process is recommended when the stone tiles contain LIPPAGE. It is also recommended when there are deep scratches and stains.

Honing

Honing is the process of smoothing the stone with the use of abrasives. Honing is performed to remove scratches but will not remove lippage. It can however round the edges of the stone giving a smoother finish to the edge.

Polishing

The high shine observed on the stone is the result of smoothing it with fine abrasives.  We will use diamond abrasives to hone the stone then switch to the powdered abrasive to achieve the final polish. The abrasive powder is worked into the stone with a floor machine using water. The powder is worked until a polish is achieved.

Crystallisation

Crystallisation is used to describe the process to maintain the shine on marble services. The process consists of spraying a chemical fluid onto the floor and buffing it with steel wool under the buffing machine. The steel wool generates heat through abrasion and the chemical reacts with the Marble, producing a new compound on the surface of the stone. This procedure protects the surface of the stone, adds shine and may even harden the stone increasing its wear.

Sealing

The most important part!

Floor sealer is a chemical solution that is applied to the surface of the floor  to protect them against stains, damage and spillages. Some sealers can also interact with some materials to give them a glossier appearance which may be desirable in certain style locations.  It works well to protect any porous floor surface. This coating is very durable, making it a great solution to reduce wear and tear, as well as making maintenance much easier.
