Stone Resin Care & Maintenance
Water marks: Clean with damp cloth and wipe dry.
Most Dirt & Residue: Use soapy water or ammonia based cleaner, rinse and wipe dry.
Difficult residue: If residue persists, repeat process. If residue still persists, please see directions for removing scratches.
Disinfecting: Occasionally wipe surface with a household bleach dilution (50 parts water/1 part bleach). Rinse basin or bathtub thoroughly with water and wipe dry.
Refurbishing Finished Gloss Level
Matte: Wipe with a microfiber cloth in a circular motion. Rinse the surface and wipe dry.
Glossy: Use a damp sponge or cloth with a mild abrasive cream or cleanser paste to help hide scratches and produce a uniform gloss. Repeat steps to produce a higher gloss level. The higher the RPM the more sheen.
In most cases stone resin can be repaired if damaged. However, be sure to follow these steps to prevent any permanent damage to the stone resin.
- Avoid exposing stone resin to strong chemicals, such as nail polish, nail polish remover, hair dyes etc. If contact occurs, quickly flush the surface with water.
- Do not cut directly on solid surfaces.
- Boiling water alone will not damage your stone resin basin. However, running your faucet while pouring boiling water into your basin will damage it.
Removing minor cuts and scratches
Because the beauty of stone resin goes all the way through, stone resin is completely renewable. You can remove minor cuts and scratches by following these instructions.
- Begin with a fine grit sanding pad to remove the scratch (approximately 400-600 grit). Rub over scratch in a straight line (not circular motion) to remove it. Periodically switch rubbing direction 90°. Be sure the entire scratch is removed and shape appropriately to match the surrounding area. If this first step takes too long, try the next heaviest grit sanding pad. To minimize dust during sanding, wet the surface. Rinse pad periodically to clean residue.
- Clean surface with water. Select the next finest grit until desired gloss level is achieved. For matte, you should be ending at about 600 grit. For glossy you should end at about 2000-3000 grit.
