Pre-polishing Powder for Marble, Limestone, Slate, Travertine & Onyx
A powder formulated for marble floors to remove heavy etch marks and light traffic pattern abrasion before polishing with Stardust. This product will not remove deep gouges or lippage. Pre-Stardust is specifically formulated to be used with Stardust & Starclean.
Can be used on marble, limestone, slate, travertine & onyx. Removes light scratches that cannot be removed by normal polishing.
— Not for use on green marble or granite.
Approximately 150 to 300 square feet per pound depending on condition of surface being restored.
The use of 175 RPM floor machine (minimum weight 100 lbs.) with solution tank, showerfeed pad driver and a white floor maintenance pad is recommended. 1) Sprinkle Pre-Stardust on floor with applicator-dispenser in a circle approximately the size of machine being used. Set machine on Pre-Stardust that has been applied to floor. With solution tank water control, apply water to floor BEFORE turning on floor machine. Add Pre-Stardust or water as necessary to maintain a watery slurry. Rotting of machine may splatter the slurry, so take care to protect adjoining areas of carpet, wood and walls. 2) If water solution tank is not used, wet a small area with clean water and sprinkle in Pre-Stardust with applicator-dispenser. Turn on floor machine and work water and Pre-Stardust into slurry. 3) Work areas of no more than 15 to 20 square feet at a time. DO NOT ALLOW SLURRY TO DRY ON FLOOR AT ANY TIME. 4) After running floor machine over the 15 or 20 square foot area three or four times, use a 16" or 18" window squeegee and pull across surface to check results. When an area has been completed, move slurry, with window squeegee, to next area to be done. 5) Mop the completed area immediately with Starclean solution at recommended dilution ratio, making sure all Pre-Stardust slurry is removed from the surface and grout lines. IMPORTANT: Certain types of grouts may turn white if Pre-Stardust is left in grout lines. To remove, you MUST A) use a wet vac to get slurry and cleaner solution for the grout lines, or B) if a wet vac is not being used, completely agitate slurry from grout lines. 6) Repeat the polishing process using same slurry adding water or Pre-Stardust as needed until entire area is completed. 7) Make sure all Pre-Stardust is removed from floor before proceeding with Stardust polishing process.
