Faber Solid Wax Review
Natural stone surfaces, just like any other, come under attack on a daily basis. Take countertops for instance. During the food preparation activities, spills and smudges are bound to occur. Coffee, mustard, cooking oil, grease and citrus juice- they all have varying effects. The acidic ones can cause etching, which ruins the surface. Soap scum on the shower walls and tub surrounds, dirt and grit particles that are abrasive and can scratch the surface- these are all threats to your installation. Then there are those issues that come during renovation, such as improperly sealing the surface, causing a hazy appearance to form. Cleaning also factors in. Using the incorrect cleaning products can result in a surface film being left behind. The layers of soap that remain on the surface contributes to the dulling appearance. Those times when intense scrubbing is carried out to remove the stubborn stains also takes away the lustre. Why does this happen? The natural stones contain crystals. These crystals are what reflects light, producing the shine. Crushing or breaking the crystals- whether it’s from the abrasion during cleaning or even simply everyday wear, prevents them from evenly reflecting the light. It's just like with a flashlight, where if the lens breaks, it does not reflect the light that's emitted from the bulb. Polishing products come in to restore that shine. These agents bond with the surface, and the buffing that is undertaken brings back the lost lustre. For quality results, turn to the Faber Solid Wax.
Polishing the natural stone surfaces gives them that "wow" factor that gets heads turning the moment a person walks into the room. That reflective shine becomes the core to the appeal of the home's or office's decor, earning you praise from the guests coming over. It's not just about the beauty. The surface obtains an additional protective seal. In this case, liquids like wine and tea spills end up simply beading on the surface instead of penetrating into the material, allowing you to get rid of spills faster. Without such a treatment, the liquids are quickly absorbed by the material resulting in stubborn stains, and etching. Soap scum on the tub surrounds and shower walls, water spots and those annoying fingerprint marks on the countertops- getting your surfaces polished enables you to reduce these effects. You want a product that you can use to make this a reality. One that is safe on natural stone, while still providing quality results. That's right up the alley of the Faber Solid Wax.
Benefits Of The Faber Solid Wax
Enhance the aesthetic appeal of the surfaces
The solvent-based Faber Solid Wax is used to give worktops and walls an elegant shine, that boosts the tone of the surface, consequently enhancing the decor of the establishment. What’s more, it does not yellow over time, thus keeping the surfaces elegant for longer. Coming with a quality paraffin formulation, it dries fast after application, enabling normalcy to resume on your premises.
The product has been developed particularly for use on areas that don't handle foot traffic. This makes it applicable on sections ranging from the countertops and backsplashes in the kitchen and office break room, to the walls of bathrooms and hallways. The materials that can be treated with the Faber Solid Wax include marble-cement agglomerate, cementine, slate, marble, basaltina - lava stone, quartzite, cotto, granite, limestone, terracotta, clinker and travertine.
Routine cleaning of the surfaces that have been treated with the Faber Solid Wax is a breeze. It improves the water and stain repellence properties of the material, reducing the rate of dirt build-up and allowing you to quickly clean the surfaces.
The easy-to-use of the Faber Solid Wax cuts down on the amount of time and energy you spend on the task. The process can be broken down into two:
Application: Here, you can use a spatula, brush or cloth. Simply scoop the product from the container, and spread it out onto the surface evenly, then give it 5-10 minutes to dwell and form a dry layer.
Polishing: Depending on the size of the area that you’re working on, you can use anything from a cloth, to equipment like orbital or flexible polishers, or even an arm polishing machine. Work the product on the surface, polishing it until you get the desired shine.
Note that the product should only be applied to a surface that is completely clean and dry. You don’t want to trap dirt particles under the wax, as they will ruin the outcome. The surface can also be warmed up in order to boost the penetration of the product into the structure. In addition, for the surfaces that have been recently laid, the adhesive used should be allowed to cure completely before applying the Faber Solid Wax onto the surface.
