MB11 Marble Etch Remover and Polishing Powder
MB11 marble etch remover is a polishing powder & etch remover for calcite based stones. MB11 Touch Up is a unique combination of specialty abrasives and catalysts that make the art of marble polishing relatively easy to implement without the need for power tools. MB11 is designed for spot polishing of most “water stains” or “rings” from polished marble, travertine, and any other calcite-based stone. Works best on lighter stones.
Directions: Make sure to test product first on a spare tile or inconspicuous area for extra caution before use. Use rubber gloves at all times when handling the product. Apply approximately 1/8 teaspoon of powder to the dull spot to be restored. Using a spray bottle, spray a mist of water over the powder, making sure all the powder is moistened. If you do not have a spray bottle, you can pour a few drops of water onto the powder from a cup. The mixture should be a wet paste consistency. Using a clean, slightly moistened white piece of cotton cloth (a washcloth will do fine), rub until the area treated is dry. To finish with a “professional touch”, spray a bit more water to the area being treated, then using the same part of the cloth with product residue, rub in circles (with a little pressure). Then use a fast back and forth motion (with more pressure) until the stone surface is dry and shiny. This will make for a perfect blend. Repeat the process if needed. For the final cleaning, to eliminate any residue, spray a little MB-5 Stone & More Multi Surface Spray Cleaner, then rub it dry.
To determine if you need to seal your stone, try doing a water test on the stone's surface. Pour a little more than a tablespoon of water onto the area to be tested and let stand for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Check to see if any of the water has been absorbed. If it looks the same, then you probably do not need to seal the stone's surface. Another way to verify, is to wipe away the water with a dry cloth and see if the stone looks darker. If the color hasn't changed, then you are still good to go without sealing. If the stone seems to look darker in color, then you would benefit in sealing the stone's surface. We would recommend using MB24 Barrier to seal your stone's surface after using the MB11 Touch Up and MB5 Stone & More Cleaner.
