Stone Care & Restoration Powders, Paste

What is Stone Polishing Powder Used For?

Polishing powder is used to enhance the shine and finish of natural stone surfaces such as marble, granite, and terrazzo. It works by mechanically refining the stone's surface to a bright, mirror-like finish.

Polishing powders often contain fine abrasives that smooth the stone, reducing the visibility of scratches and restoring the surface to its original beauty. They are essential in both the final stages of professional stone restoration and routine maintenance to keep the stone looking pristine.

What is Stone Polishing Paste Used For?

Polishing paste is used to enhance the finish and luster of stone surfaces, similar to polishing powder, but it often comes in a thicker, creamier form. This paste is particularly effective for smoothing out small imperfections and increasing the shine of stones like marble, granite, and quartz. It's ideal for use on countertops, floors, and other stone surfaces where a high-gloss finish is desired.

The main difference between polishing paste and polishing powder lies in their consistency and sometimes in the specific applications for which they are best suited:

How to Restore Natural Stone

Restoring natural stone involves several steps to bring back its shine and remove any scratches or etches. It typically starts with cleaning the stone with a pH-neutral cleaner to remove any dirt or stains.

Depending on the condition of the stone, grinding may be necessary to eliminate deep scratches and surface damage. Following that, polishing with a specific polishing powder or paste can help achieve a high gloss finish. Regular maintenance and careful handling can preserve the stone's appearance for years.

Can You Use a Rubbing Compound on Granite?

It is not recommended to use a standard automotive rubbing compound on granite because these products are typically too abrasive for delicate stone surfaces and can cause more harm than good.

Instead, for correcting minor scratches or dull spots on granite, using products specifically designed for stone care, like granite honing powders or specialized granite polishing compounds, is advisable. These products are formulated to address the unique needs of granite surfaces, ensuring that they enhance the stone's appearance without causing damage.
