TIPS On How To Polish Granite -
First time using the stone polish? Apply a second coat in a day or two.
Don't use too much! It won't hurt your stone but you will have to buff longer. You never need to strip it, just re apply when needed.
This depends on how much stone you are polishing and where it is (walls, counters, nooks, etc.). Typically, one hundred square feet of countertops will take about 10 - 15 minutes.
The short answer... Yes.
We tested the stone polish on a dusty piece of Black Galaxy, 2 foot x 2 foot. We wanted to see if the polish added a really noticeable shine and also, if there was a significant difference between hand buffing and using a machine.
There was a slight difference in shine between hand buffing and machine buffing.
The color was deeper and the reflections were a little crisper on the machine buffed side.
But, it doesn't warrant recommending that you applya stone polish with a buffer. Either way works.
Our piece of Black Galaxy sparkled on both sides of the tape!
The stone felt as smooth as glass.
You can see where we removed the painters tape from the center of the stone.
The non polished strip down the center is duller when compared to the surrounding areas.
We decided to try it on a few different stones.
The polished side is on your right.
The stone polish improved the look and feel of all the stones we applied it to. With some stones, the look improved immensely. The stone was shinier and the the color deepened... it looked like you could step into the stone. With others, the change was still noticeable, but not as drastic. All of the stone surfaces felt as smooth as glass.
