Atlantic Beach Marble Polishing

Atlantic Beach Marble Polishing

 

Fabric & Tile Masters refinished this antique marble table for a customer in Fleet Landing. The table was shipped 50 years ago from the owners home in Massachusetts to Atlantic Beach. Over the years it became scratched and etched.  We took the table through a grit progression 110g,220, 400g, 800g followed by marble polishing.

The secret to marble polishing on location is to go to a deep enough grit level on the first honing cut. This assures that all scratches and low pH etch marks will be removed. These are the two reasons the stone will be refinished. After this first (50g, 100g) honing cut the stone is white and completely unrecognizable. The following honing passes (200g,400g) remove the scratches from the prior cut. As the honing cuts become finer, the stone develops depth of color and clarity. At the finest grit levels (800g,1600g,3000g) the stone begins to actually develop a polish that when viewed across a light source reveals a glossy appearance.

There are several types of diamond tools that are used to polish marble. The diamonds come in a variety of sizes, shapes and are all used for different purposes. Vacuum braised, electro plated, metal segmented, resin bond, are a few diamonds we use every day.
