MARBLE FLAMED – CLEANING & SEALING
Different surfaces have different requirements in order to keep their beauty and integrity.
Aqua-Seal STS offers Pre-Grout Sealing, Sealing, Maintenance and Restoration specifications. These are listed below for your convenience.
Marble is a granular metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Recrystallisation is caused by metamorphism (heat and pressure) of these minerals. This also results in the different type of veining and colours seen in marble along with the different textures (fine to coarse). The flamed, old world, rustic look is achieved by wetting, then running an oxygen-acetlyene or propane torch over the stone causing the surface layer to expand and flake off, exposing rough stone. Due to the high content of calcium carbonate, marble is susceptible to etching from acid based contaminants eg wine, citrus, soft drinks.
