Granite Maintenance

The newly laid granite floor is not suitable for bottom wax and wax: why the newly laid granite ground is unsuitable for wax and wax, we can make a comparison between it and marble can draw a conclusion.

The marble surface, whether new or old, is made of calcium carbonate crystals, large particles, so large pores, even after careful polishing, under the microscope can still see the uneven interface, this fine pore for the fall wax is the advantage: when coated with wax, the bottom wax molecular weight small, strong penetration, coupled with capillary effect, Soon the wax is adsorbed on the marble surface and becomes a film, and when the moisture in the bottom wax is completely volatile, the adsorption force is more important, which is used to counteract the force exerted on its surface by the person moving and dragging the object, without leaving the wax surface out of the ground.

For the newly laid granite ground, it is mainly composed of quartz, mica, feldspar crystals, density, high hardness, coupled with artificial polishing, so that the granite surface of a few pores, so when falling wax, the bottom of the wax can not penetrate, no capillary effect, of course, there is no or only a very weak adsorption force, This kind of wax surface when the personnel walk on it, it is easy to fall off, so that the work of wax in vain.

In view of this situation, for the newly laid granite, in the six months to one year after laying, only use spray-cleaning wax to carry out the spray to prevent the stain from penetrating the granite and maintain its surface brightness. Because every day through the flow of people to different, the intensity of the granite surface of the degree of wear is also different, after a period of time role.
