Stone Care Products
Among the plethora of stone care products available, there are a few general types that you should be familiar with. First, of course, are the cleaners, which come in a few different varieties. Next come polishes, which are available as powders or pastes. There are sealers and enhancers, including color enhancers, to put the finishing touches on stone restoration. For damaged stone, there are adhesives and fillers that can make it look like new. All of these products are available on the MB Stone Pro website www.mbstonepro.com.
Stone Care Tools
Any "must have" list of stone care tools begins with the grinder or polisher machines. These are available as both hand and floor machines, and they use circular pads to grind and smooth stone. There are many pads to choose from, including sandpaper pads, resin pads, and even pads impregnated with diamonds. Each pad has its own specific use. Some other tools you might want to add to your collection of stone care products and tools would include brushes, bottles and ColorClad accessories like mixing paddles and digital scales.
