Marble Polishing Etch Remover
With this unique and user-friendly Etch Remover / Marble Polishing product, removing water-stains and spots, glass-rings, dull spots and damage from acid and chemical etching has never been easier! Restore the shine to your polished marble and travertine surfaces with this very popular and effective professional-grade marble polishing & etch repair product. Excellent for light scratch repair as well.
NOTE: For use on polished (shiny) surfaces only (marble, travertine, limestone and onyx). Not for use on honed or other non-polished surfaces (will make the surface shiny). Will not re-polish hard stones like granite, quartzite, serpentine or quartz countertops.
TIP: The Etch Remover / Marble Polishing product must be thoroughly neutralized and removed from the treated area after and/or in-between applications. We recommend using this Granite & Marble Cleaner for this purpose and for general marble cleaning.
An Essential Product for Polishing Marble and Marble Repair
Calcite-based stones like marble, travertine, limestone & onyx are sensitive to acidic foods like citrus fruit, fruit juices, wine, coffee, soda, vinegar and to alkaline cleaning products like bleach and nearly all typical household cleaning products found at your local store. Such substances cause "acid etching" or "chemical etching".
The acids and chemicals can corrode or "etch" the surface creating dull spots, clear or light-colored spots and glass-rings. These are not stains in the traditional sense. Nothing is absorbed into the stone, so etching is not related to sealing. Etching is actual physical damage that removes the polished (shiny) layer and eats into the stone. A stone sealer will not prevent etching.
The original shiny polish on your marble countertops and floors was created by friction and abrasion. The Etch Remover / Marble Polishing Product works in the same fashion restoring the shine and color to surfaces damaged from etching by polishing marble surfaces. The process is similar to sanding wood smooth.
Best of all.... it's an easy DIY project saving you the costly expense of hiring a pro in most cases. Marble repair and maintenance made easy! Although rare, very severe etching that is rough to the touch may still require professional attention.
For use on polished marble, travertine, limestone & onyx. Not suitable for non-polished (honed, tumbled, brushed, antiqued, etc.) surfaces. Not engineered for use on granite or serpentine (a green stone often sold as "marble"), which are much harder stones than marble.
NOTE: Etch Remover / Marble Polishing Product is not to be confused with Topical Stone Polish. The Topical Polish / Conditioner is a "shine enhancer" which can only enhance undamaged surfaces. It cannot remove glass-rings or repair etching damage.
