Steps for Marble Countertop Polishing

You’ll need many grit sizes of the Diamond Polishing Pads with a wet stone polisher grinder for polishing your marble countertop. If you go with the correct process, you can get the best results.

ibouteek Diamond Polishing Pads are made with high-quality diamond powder and temperature resistant resin.

You’ll find polishing pads of various grits in your kit. While smaller grit sizes (50, 100, 200) are designed to remove heavy scratches, higher grit sizes (1500, 3000) are designed for achieving a shiny finish.

Now attach backing pads to wet polisher. However, before this, make sure it’s switched off. Once you attach the backing pads, you can start the polishing process.

Open the Diamond Marble Polishing Kit and start with grit 50 polishing pad. Attach this 50 grit pad to the Velcro of backing pad.

Slowly open water flow for wet polisher.

When you start the polisher, keep the RPM to low and start polishing with side-to-side motion, not more than 4-5 times because with lower grits, too many iterations can grind more than required without offering any value to the polished finish.

Repeat the process with other small size grits, a better smooth surface can be achieved that is free from all old sealant, wax and saw marks.

The grinder should be used initially at a low speed and speed should be increased slowly as needed.

Make sure every single section of the surface is polished with smaller grit, before switching to the higher grit. If an area remains unpolished with lower grit, it will cause suboptimal shine. A great way to ensure this is to wipe the surface with a wet cleaning towel and polish dry. The water at the spot already polished will be evaporated with the heat. Make sure all water evaporates. Now perform another round of wet polishing.

Once you make sure the entire surface is polished with low grit, move to the next higher grit.

Use the pads one-by-one until you achieve the desired finish. Next vacuum the area as required to clean any dirt. As you reach grit 800, you’d find a good shine and as you reach up to grit 1500 and 3000, you will get a mirror-like finish.

Make Sure You Use Sealer

Since marble is a porous stone, its pores should be sealed with a marble sealer. The sealer will create a protective layer, close all exposed pore and prevent fluids from infiltrating the marble stone.
