Marbrosol is a chemical action no-wax polish for the maintenance of marble, travertine, terrazzo, and other polished limestone surfaces.
A marble surface maintained with Marbrosol :
- requires no more stripping
- will not scuff
- will not yellow
- is completely dry after the application of Marbrosol
- is slip resistant
- For floors, single brush machine 175 RPM. Optimum buffer weight: 125/130 lbs.
- For vanities, tables, stairs, walls counters, etc., a Flex L 1501 VR Polisher
I Stripping (only when needed)
When marble is coated with wax, finish or seal. Please refer to stripping, neutralizing instruction sheet
II Marbrosol Floor Polishing
About two hours of drying time is recommended between the stripping/neutralizing and the application of Marbrosol.
- Good quality solvent resistant sprayer (leakage might harm the marble).
- Steelwool pads (grade depends on type and condition of marble) steelwool
reel, dust mop. Contact International Stoneworks, Inc., for advice
on choice of grade.
STEP ONE: Cover all baseboards, and exposed areas (carpet, brass, wood, etc.)
STEP TWO: Spray mist (never in a stream form) the Marbrosol undiluted on an area no larger that 3' x 3' (17" machine) or 3' x 4' (19" machine). The floor should be "damp" but not wet with Marbrosol.
STEP THREE: Immediately place appropriate steelwool pad under floor machine and buff the Marbrosol into the marble. It is important not to let the Marbrosol dry by itself on the floor. Run the machine slowly over all sprayed area making sure no part is missed. Continue same process until the floor is dry and polished. Repeat procedure 2 or 3 times or until the desired gloss is achieved. Older or more worn marble may require more than 3 applications.
Note: Excess buffing after the Marbrosol floor is dry will remove the polish. If this happens, repeat Step I and 2 on same area.
STEP FOUR: Repeat Steps I and 2 on the area adjacent to the one just polished. Blend with previously polished area by running the buffer over joint line.
STEP FIVE: Rub by hand comers and other areas not accessible by machine with a piece of steelwool.
STEP SIX: Dust mop thoroughly and dry vacuum.
III Regular Neutralizing and Cleaning Maintenance
Damp mop floor or sponge clean surface with Lavenet neutralizing no-rinse cleaner diluted as per directions as often as needed (dilution usually 1/4 cup per 2 gallons of cold water).
IV Marbrosol Maintenance
Depending on traffic load, the polish on such high traffic areas will diminish. At that time, repeat Marbrosol polishing procedure on these areas only. Stripping and neutralizing is no longer required after surface has been polished with Marbrosol .
V Marble Walls, Vanities, Stairs, Tables, Etc.
Use Marbrosol with the Flex L 1501 VR Polisher.
