Can you polish porcelain/ceramic tiles

 
Not all porcelain tiles can be polished because there is often a thin layer of glazed print on the surface which could be entirely removed during the polishing process. We can only grind porcelain tiles that are full-bodied, which have a surface colour that has been baked throughout the tile. If we test a tile and find that it’s porcelain, we ask for the manufacturer’s details before any polishing can be undertaken.

Can you shine my honed floor
 
Yes, we first clean the floor and remove scratches for you, then grind the stone to a desired finish. Most natural stone can be polished to a honed finish or shined finish, the only difference in the process is the final diamond pad that’s used during the restoration. A consultation will determine if your floor is suitable for a shiny polished finish.
 
A honed finish tends to be an 800 grit pad and if you want a satin finish we offer 1500 grit, and 3000 can be used for a higher shine. 5000 or 8000 grit is for super glossy finish.
 
If you’re not sure about it, we can do a demonstration on a small area. If you’re looking for a glassy reflective appeal please tell us during the quotation visitation because this process requires a whole different set of pads and we need to know before the demonstration begins. If decide that you don’t like the shine it will be easy enough to restore back to honed.

How long does it take for a complete stone floor restoration?
 
For a room of about 60 sqm we ask for two days to complete a full restoration. The second day is required to apply the second coat of sealant. Each diamond pad can take up to 3 minutes per square meter so the full process depends on the desired finish, whether it be honed, satin or gloss. Here is our process:
 

1. Clean

  • Stripping of old sealant is not always required if we’re going to use diamond pads, however this process offers the best results when cleaning dirty grout lines. The sealant must be rinsed and vacuumed thoroughly before the next process.
  •  

    2. Restore

  • Filling of cracks and holes depends on the state of the floor and could take several hours.
  • 400 grit pad grinds out the scuffed and damaged areas.
  • 800 grit pad for honed finish and to smooth out the roughness of the 400 grit.
  • 1500 grit pad for a satin finish.
  • 3000 grit pad for a shiny finish.
  • 5000 grit pad for a high gloss finish.
  •  

    3. Seal

  • Sealant application for a room could take one hour but requires 3 hours drying time and the floor must have a maximum of 5% moisture before we can apply it. We generally return the following day for the second coat.

    I only want a clean, not restoration
     
    If you don’t want a full restoration with diamond pads, but only a strip and seal cleaning service, we can undertake this in one day. The process is the same as the restoration process above, skipping out the diamond pads. If required, we can also offer a partial restoration service such as filling of cracks and holes. With our specialist diamond-grit hand tools we can bring the resin to the same polished finish of the rest of the floor. We often undertake this service during a travertine strip and seal.

    Porcelain tiles are a type of Ceramic tile and is the name for some materials that are formed by the use of heat. Ceramic tiles don’t fade in sunlight and are resilient to high temperatures, making them fire-resistant. Unglazed tiles can be porous and subject to staining, which can be difficult to remove. Glazed tiles, however, are stain resistant and very popular for use on the walls of bathrooms, kitchens and restaurants where frequent washing is required. Some floor tiles can be glazed, however it will consist of protruding particles to keep it slip-resistant. Three types of ceramic tiles are described on this page.

    Basalt

    Basalt is a stunning range of porcelain floor tiles with six authentic natural shades available in matt and semi-polished finishes. From deep greys to pale fawn colours, this series is sophisticated yet highly versatile.
    Basalt is a volcanic stone that has been used in architecture for centuries. Although Basalts boast the durability of a granite, they tend to have the consistent coloration, markings and subtlety of a limestone. Basalt is a porous material with naturally-occurring holes that may remain unfilled or be factory-filled with resin or cement. Basalt will stain when exposed to oil and highly-pigmented liquids.

    Victorian

    Encaustic tiles are ceramic tiles in which the pattern or figure on the surface is not a product of the glaze but of different colours of clay. They are usually of two colours but a tile may be composed of as many as six. The pattern appears inlaid into the body of the tile, so that the design remains as the tile is worn down. Encaustic tiles may be glazed or unglazed and the inlay may be as shallow as an eighth of an inch, as is often the case with “printed” encaustic tile from the later medieval period, or as deep as a quarter inch.

    Porcelain

    Porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles commonly used to cover floors and walls, with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent. The clay used to build porcelain tiles is generally denser. They can either be glazed or unglazed. Porcelain tiles are one type of vitrified tiles and are sometimes referred to as porcelain vitrified tiles. The dense, hard surface of porcelain has made polishing a viable alternative to a glazed surface. This means that a tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze. Porcelain is denser and therefore heavier to handle than other ceramic tiles. For this reason, it is generally more expensive. Being harder, it is more difficult to cut and drill and requires specialist tools, which can hamper fitting and increase costs. Polished porcelain may need sealing, where ordinary glazed tiles do not. The glazed surface is coated with less than two microns. When porcelain is first made, it is not absorbent, but the polishing process for making the unglazed surface shiny cuts into the surface, leaving it more porous and prone to absorbing stains, in the same way as natural stone tiles. Unless they have a suitable, long-lasting treatment applied by the manufacturer (for example, nanotech treatment), polished porcelain tiles may need sealing. Porcelain sealants are either solvent-based or water-based, which is cheaper, but does not last.
