MARBLE – 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). Due to the high content of calcium carbonate, travertine is susceptible to etching from acid based contaminants eg wine, citrus, soft drinks.
TYPES OF FINISHES
FLAMED -The flamed finish, is an old world, rustic, rough look.
HONED -A honed finish is smooth with little or no gloss (flat or satin finish).
POLISHED – A polished finish is smooth with a high gloss which also brings out the colour of the stone.
TUMBLED – A tumbled finish is a matt antique/old world look with irregular edges achieved during the tumbling/ageing process.
