Faber B 1/920 Review
Natural stone surfaces are known for their beauty. From the colours, the veining, to the reflective attributes- they enhance the indoor decor. However, they need proper maintenance to preserve their elegance. Take shower walls for instance. The cleaning soaps and shampoos that one uses as they take a shower can react with the stone, such as by dissolving the calcium in limestone and travertine stones. This etches the surface, making it dull. Marble, granite- they are all affected. A coat of protection is needed, and that's where wax polishing comes in. An additional issue crops up- these are vertical surfaces. Conventional products would make the application process a nightmare. You want a solution that you can use to treat the surface easily. Faber has got you covered with the B1 920. This is a review of what you can expect from it.
Benefits Of The Faber B 1/920
Increase surface shine
This water-based wax polish has been formulated to bring a highly polished effected to the surface. With the enhanced shine, the aesthetic appeal of the treated area gets a boost. What’s more, it adds to the durability of the surface, increases its hardness, thereby protecting it from abrasive effects caused by everyday life. The ultra-resistant film that is formed by the coat of the Faber B1 920 hence goes a long way in cutting down the costs that would have been incurred with pricy repairs.
Side-step the odours
Traditional wax formulations have one core issue: the solvents that produce strong odours. These make the application risky for the one undertaking it, and the fumes released into the interior space affect the indoor air quality. The Faber B1 920 comes in to be used in place of the solid and solvent-based liquid wax, enabling you to treat the surface in your home or business premises without having to endure the odours that would have otherwise been produced by the traditional variants.
Ideal for vertical surfaces
The Faber B1 920 has been specifically formulated for working on vertical surfaces, such as walls, and other surfaces which don’t handle foot traffic. As such, you can use it in areas like bathroom tops and stone worktops. These areas would be difficult to polish with the conventional polishing methods, and the Faber B1 920 comes in to fill that much needed gap. The product is versatile, being applicable on different types of stone surfaces, such as granite, limestone, marble and travertine.
Reduces your workload during routine cleaning
By forming a layer of protection on the surface, it prevents dirt from adhering to the stone structure. This makes the daily cleaning tasks way easier. You don’t need to spend hours scrubbing at stubborn dirt spots. When the time to dewax comes, you can use Dec 21 or Decera P, both of which are also products from Faber. The application here depends on the type of surface being dealt with.
The popular method for applying the Faber B 1/920 is the Spray Buffing technique. Here, one simply sprays the product onto the target surface- albeit a small amount, then the polishing is carried out. 2 to 3 squirts of spray are enough on every small section, and the polishing can be done manually with a wool-cotton cloth, or perhaps a white or wire wool pad. For those who are working on larger sections, you can opt to buff the surface with an orbital or flexible polisher. This should be fitted with wire wool, white or lambskin pad attachment. For the polishing, it is recommended that you use concentric movements. This is to enable even product distribution across the entire surface. One can also choose to work with applicator tools such as a brush, roller, lambswool applicator or cloth. It is advisable that you work in small, manageable sections. Spray and polish one area before proceeding on to the next. Once you're through with the application, bring out your dry cloth or mop to remove any residual steel wool particles on the surface.
In order to ensure that you get optimal results, there are a couple of things that you should take note of, including:
Give the surface a thorough clean before starting the application. This is to prevent dirt particles from getting trapped under the Faber B 1/920 treatment, which would end up in an unsightly mess.
Ensure that the surface is not damp or wet before treatment. Since you will have washed it, first let it dry.
Any areas adjacent to the sections being worked on that are not to be treated should be covered for their protection.
The spray applicator bottle being used should have a wide nozzle, which will speed up the operation. In addition, you should shake the bottle well before proceeding to apply the formulation onto the surface.
The Faber B 1/920 should be applied on surfaces whose temperature ranges from 5 and 40°C. Treating surfaces when they are overly heated affects the quality of the results.
No drying time needed
With the Faber B 1/920, the surface will be ready to use immediately after the treatment. This allows you to restore normalcy to your home or business premises fast, and also takes away the inconvenience that is caused by traditional waxing methods.
