Question & Answers

Will the Dia-Glo marble buffing compound discolor white grout. I need to remove vinegar etches from my marble shower tile and am concerned that any buffing compound would affect my grout. Thanks,

Dia-Glo Marble Buffing Compound will not discolor white grout.

Will one quart do 120 Sq.Ft. thanks, Ron

It depends on the type and condition of the stone but one quart should be sufficient to cover 120 sq ft.

I have black and dark gray/ black marble tops...which polishing compound will work best to bring the black marbe to a high shine without leaving any white or light haze in the black color

Black or dark granite buffing compound would work best

I have a light Marble counter top in bathroom, it needs a shiny finish it is 12 years old. I had to hand buff stains impregnated in surface, used a fine grit sponge sander to remove stains, buffed with baking soda and water in stained area. The blending of buffed area and un buffed area looks fine. Because of the age and who knows what was used for cleaning (we purchased house 5 months ago) the shine is gone, it looks fine but I am concerned with out a sealer I will constantly be fighting spots. Any suggestions?

A sealer will not restore a polish. If you sanded all areas and want to bring up the gloss so the stone look wet when it is dry, use DiaGlo M.

May this product be useful on porcelain ceramic gloss?

This product is designed for natural stone, so it is not recommended for use with ceramic or porcelain.

I have tumbled basalt pebbles with silicon carbide grits. Now I would like to bring shine to pebbles by buffing. I like to buy various buffing compounds / bars for final buffing of basalt pebbles. What compounds and wheels should I buy?

Basalt is mostly made of igneous rock therefore DiaGlo Dark Granite and felt should do well to achieve a glossy finish.

My carerra marble kitchen counter got etched by something, coffee maybe, and also has multiple other stains and spots. I got a bid of 500 to re-finish it, but would like to try myself. Suggestions?

Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.

This product is ideal for buffing and honing a dull stone. It may not remove enough material to remove the stain.

There is a stain remover product you may want to try first, part number ADGSR05. (http://www.contractorsdirect.com/Alpha-General-Stain-Remover-ADGSR05)

Can this powder be used for polishing concrete?

Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.

This product may polish concrete to a certain degree, but polishing concrete can sometimes require multiple steps depending on the current state of the concrete and the desired level of shine. It may be better to use diamond resin polishing pads as they would best used for your application.

I have a white Carrara tile floor that I installed last year. The grout joints were getting dirty, so I scrubbed them with a Scott Brite brush. Not only did I clean the grout joints, but I got a portion of the marble as well. Never thinking that the plastic pad of the Scott Brite brush would scratch/dull the marble. Now , the marble is scratched/dull about 1 inch around the perimeter of the tile. Will this product bring the shine back? If so, what pad should I use? Thanks

Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.

The Marble buffing compound may remove enough surface material through the polishing process to bring back the shine in the tile. The polishing process may need to be repeated several times depending on the depth of the blemishes caused by the brush.

We offer non-abrasive pads for sale as well.

Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Will this powder remove the tiny scratches on agate stone? Which version is the most compatible with agate? Is sand paper required? Thanks

Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.

It depends on how deep those scratches may be. This product is applied using a handheld, variable speed grinder with a felt pad wheel attachment. Do not use sand paper.

Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I have white marmol,countertop. I did wet polishing on it (several grids) and buffed it, however the surface does not shine as before. Will your marble buffing compound bring back the sinning? If so do I buffed with the machine? At low speeds? If so what type of pad do I need? Thanks

Glenn,

Thanks for contacting Contractors Direct.

This product needs to be used with a dense felt pad and a variable speed grinder at low speeds. 

This product may help improve the sheen, however, a factory-level sheen is hard to replicate.

Very pleased with the results.

I have been watching the wear and tear on my granite create a haze of tiny scratches on the surface as the years pass by. The granite buffing compound went on easily with a random orbital polisher and the granite looks better than new now. I will buff annually when I reseal. It takes a little more effort, but looks great, and is well worth it!

works great, fast, mirror finish

Our marble floor was dull and was etched when we used vinegar to remove the wall paper, and the vinegar got on the floor. This product worked great, quickly provides a high gross finish. I kept asking my wife, "are you sure the floor is not still wet" I used a 7" auto angle polisher with a wool cover. Be sure to use breathing and eye protection.

Wow

by - verified purchaser
This was the missing link in polishing granite tiles. I set a large granite tile island (3 feet by 10 feet) and no matter how much I worked the tile there were always height differences. I used diamond polishing pads from 50 grit to 6000 grit and got an OK shine. Picked up the Felt Wheel and Dia-Glo and it went from OK to off the shelf. Very impressed.

Magic Dust!

by - verified purchaser
This stuff takes an ordinary polish job to one that pops! As a caution, if you're polishing edges on marble tiles that you've profiled, a brief buffing of the factory surface with a slightly wet felt pad with a bit of compound on it will remove any residue. Make sure you rinse and wipe quickly, though.
