These pads are meant to be used to remove wear and and achieve a wide variety of finishes from dull hone (no shine) to a high polish on marble, travertine, terrazzo, or limestone floor, walls, or countertops that have little to no lippage (uneven tiles). Limestone, travertine, marble, and terrazzo become worn and abraded due to foot traffic and abrasive soils. Spinergy diamond impregnated polishing pads are the safe, easy, and effective way to restore the surface to the original factory finish. Old methods require a technician to use multiple honing and polishing compounds which may contain acids that actually damage the surface. Spinergy Pads require no messy or toxic chemicals, only water.
