Natural stone surfaces have plenty to offer both the homeowner and the business executive. They are beautiful installations, used everywhere from the countertops and backsplashes, to the walls and floors. One of the most elegant surface materials, their unique colourations give them a timeless appeal, making them popular over the centuries- and still holding strong as one of the most in-demand installations. Travertine, slate, marble, all through to granite, you get to go with the option that matches your particular needs. Realtors are all too aware of how these setups boost the value of the residential and commercial properties, with buyers and tenants willing to fork out more money to get the spaces. Then there is the durability. They can take on a beating and keep on going. It takes a lot to damage natural stone, and this has seen them be set up in modern day busy homes, to high traffic malls and office buildings. In order to keep your installation in top shape, proper care and maintenance is needed. Towards this end, Faber has developed numerous solutions, among them the Faber Universal Glossy.
Maintaining natural stone surfaces has different aspects. From using sealants to protect the underlying material after installation, to the routine cleaning to get rid of the dirt and grime that wind up on it. Over time, the floor, countertops and walls get dull. This takes away their appeal. After spending so much resources in getting the natural stone setup for your establishment, you won’t want it to look forlorn and drag down the decor of the rest of the premises with it. This is why regular polishing is vital. It helps the installation retain its natural beauty, in addition to warding off issues like stains, glass rings, spills and etching. For this, you want to ensure that you use a quality product. One that will achieve the task effectively, delivering quality results. That’s a job for the Faber Universal Glossy.
Benefits Of Faber Universal Glossy
You get to enhance the brightness and appeal of your surfaces with the Faber Universal Glossy. This accentuates the premises, and you can also use the formulation to bring back the original colouration and tone of the surfaces where they were partially deteriorated. What's more, it achieves this without leaving any defect on the surface, and is applicable in both residual and commercial setups where you want to spruce up the premises.
This polishing cream is true to its name. Its formulation enables it to be used on materials ranging from travertine, limestone, granite, quartz, all through to ceramics and agglomerates. It will polish your granite countertops and marble floors and yield the same results of brightness level. You can use the Faber Universal Glossy on both interior and entire surfaces, to enhance their aesthetic appeal. You get to work on the surfaces without putting the structure at risk.
The Faber Universal Glossy increases the wear resistance attributes of the surface being polished. From enabling worktops in kitchens to withstand heavy usage, to holding up to foot traffic while still retaining that characteristic gloss, the treated areas get to shine for longer. It also prevents soiling agents from penetrating into the material, making routine cleaning and maintenance easier.
Easy to use
Apply and polish- that's all. There are no complicated procedures to follow, or hoops to jump through. Different equipment can be used, such as single disc machines or manual rotary brushes, depending on your particular needs. For the single disc machine, it's recommended that you work with one that's rated at 2HP or 2.2HP. For instance, Faber has designed the 2.2HP Warrior single disc machine for such applications.
How do you go about it? Apply 1-2 teaspoons of the Faber Universal Glossy onto the surface and then proceed with the dry buffing using your preferred tool. It's advisable to work in concentric circles, and also focus on small sections at a time- such as 1-2 square metres of the surface. In case you’re aiming for a higher gloss level, you can repeat the process, adding more product and buffing the surface. When you’re done, use a vacuum to remove any residue, then use clean water to rinse the area.
