Crystallization

Crystallization is a method of creating high-gloss finish on calcium bearing stone floors, such as marble, limestone, and travertine.

It is a process in which a steel wool pad is used in combination with a weighted floor machine and crystallization chemicals which result to “mirror-like” shine on floor surfaces.Granite, Marble, Onyx, Travertine, Sandstone, Agglomerate, Supplier, Installer, Direct, Importer, Fabricator, Balintawak, Quezon City, Manila, Metro Manila, Countertop, Flooring, Bullnose, Edge Profile, Chamfered, Design, Cladding, Polished, Bush Hammered, Decorative Stone, Cultured Stone, Natural, Slate, Quartzite, Kitchen, Jet Black, Black Galaxy, Salt and Pepper, Salt & Pepper, Pink Porrino, Beige Porrino, Gray Honda, German White, Thassos White, Crema Marfil, Baby Pink, Ariston White, Volakas White, Teakwood, Engineered Stone, China, Italy, India, Emperador, Nero Marquina, Rosso Levanto, Blue Pearl, Emerald Pearl, Tiger, Joy, Lion, Phoenix, Teresa, SDZ, Euroasia, Italica, Timbal, Tayag, Rafaello, Samitrade, Stoneasia, Kaufman, Benco, Guanco, Stefistone, Construction, Interior, Floor, Makati, Philippines, Crystallization, Re-Crystallization

Stone Surface Finishing

Surface finishing brings out unique aesthetic features of stone materials. The ornamental function and other technical characteristics, like slipperiness and resistance to wear and weather conditions, are strongly influenced by which type is applied to the product.

Polished

Undoubtedly the most widely used finish for granites and marbles. Polishing uses high-grade machines and polishing abrasives to produce highly reflective brilliance on stone surfaces. It highlights the stone’s full color and crystal structure.

Moreover, it is the least porous of all the finishes available. This does not mean, however, that it won’t be required sealer application. Some stones are porous and will need to be sealed regardless of their surface finish. Continue reading
