Gloss is a problem that everyone pays attention to in red and white marble stone care engineering. Many people even use marble countertop color as the only measure of the quality of the honed marble countertops project.The higher the gloss,the more proof that the project is doing well. But in fact, the degree of gloss is only one of the factors that determine the effect of stone decoration.
The size of the gloss depends, on the one hand, on the refractive index of the various minerals that make up the rock and on the other hand is closely related to the microstructure of the stone surface. The same granite stone has a certain mineral composition, the smoother the surface, the less the concave and convex defects, the higher the gloss of the lilac marble.
In stone care, the microstructure of the stone surface is determined by the quality of the grinding and polishing process. The identification of the quality of the grinding and polishing is a very difficult task, because the surface of all the facing stone is bright as a mirror in our eyes. However, the surface of the finished stone after the actual grinding and polishing process is rough and the microstructure of the finished turkish lilac marble is rough and uneven after being enlarged by a high power microscope.
First, how to measure the polishing effect of lilac marble slab marble?
Visual observation: When the red and white marble maintenance is completed, it is recommended to first check the overall effect with visual observation. When looking at honed marble countertops, look at it from three perspectives.
(1) Vertical angle: The clarity of the polishing marble countertops can be checked.
Inspection method: Open the lamp on the roof and observe the outline of the light formed on the lilac marble tile. In the place where there is no light, turn on the flashlight function in the mobile phone; or turn the screen brighter and place it on the surface of the lilac tiles stone 20~30cm.
The clearer the outline, the light is not scattered, the polished surface is crystal clear and the clarity is high.
On the contrary, after some projects are finished, although the test gloss is not low, it always looks like a circle of halo, and you can't see the clear outline of the light. It proves that the polishing is not enough, but the surface is smoothed, but the gloss is not clear.
(2) Sidelight angle: After observing the vertical details, we expand the scope of observation. Look at the maintenance effect by the angle of backlighting and smoothing.
Looking at the angle of the main light source, sideways. This angle can be used to check the brightness of the lilac granite, as well as the presence of chicken feet, craters, scratches, etc.
Follow the side of the main light source and observe it sideways. From this angle, when the polishing marble countertops is the strongest light, it can check the color and pattern of the stone.
Next we will observe the overall effect of red and white marble. Turn on all kinds of light sources. Such as opening doors and windows, turning on lights etc. On a large scale, the overall effect is observed from various angles of honed marble countertops.
