Have you ever been asked if your stone had a polished or honed finish? You can figure out what they mean when they say polished finish, its shiny looking. But, what do they mean when they say honed finish? Honed finish is that natural, smooth looking surface. For example, think of a tube of lipstick or paint color for your walls. You can choose between a glossy or matte finish in either product. The same goes for stone. Honed surfaces tend to do well in high traffic and heavily used areas because they don’t seem to show scratches or etch marks as easily as your polished surfaces. They are also less slippery when wet (something to think about when you are choosing your flooring for your bathroom or staircases).
Now, you can bring that luster back to your honed surfaces on your own. We have created a kit that gives you the tools you need to get that honed look you’ve been wanting. All you need is some water and a drill (something you more than likely already have at home). The MB-14 Honing Kit is an ideal means to restore your stone surface without spending a bundle on a full stone restoration process. This kit provides the necessary items needed to restore your honed surface back to its natural beauty.
The MB-14 polishing powder works really well as a finishing product to produce a uniform honed surface. It can be used to minimize the factory swirls from honed and filled travertine tiles, along with other honed-finished stones. It also works well removing light surface scratches without the use of professional diamond pads. Now, you can get this polishing powder in a kit, ready to use, instructions included.
The kit comes with eight ounces of MB-14, two hogs hair pads, one white pad, and the drill attachment that holds the pads in place. This kit will cover approximately 150 to 250 square feet. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and give it a try. It’s user-friendly and may surprise you with how great the results turn out.
