The modern honing process uses a series of varying grit industrial diamond pads to remove minute layers of stone until an appropriate finish is achieved or the stone is prepped for polishing. Our machines use water to virtually eliminate dust from the process.
Polishing the stone involves a natural polishing powder that has been used through the ages in Europe to polish stone. The powder does not include harsh chemicals, wax or acid like some modern methods (eg., re-crystallization.) This method has been proven over time as the best treatment for stone and is more economical in the long term.
These methods in conjunction with proper routine maintenance will ensure your surfaces look their best for years to come.
