Cultured marble is an artificial marble, a composite made of dust from marble or calcium carbonate mixed with polyester resins or acrylics and then poured onto a flat molding surface or into fixture molds.
Usually, a clear coat is poured first and the composite resin creates the color and the thick structure. There is usually no glass reinforcement imbedded. It is a non-porous, less expensive substitute for genuine marble and is commonly used for sinks/vanities, countertops, bathroom tubs, wall panels and the areas surrounding tubs and showers. The same technology is used to make cultured onyx and cultured granite.
Some applications may not have a clear coat layer. However, these procedures are specific to surfaces made with a clear coat layer. Since these products are normally based on a polyester resin binder with various inorganic fillers (granules and powders), our repair materials are compatible for surface repair. The most common types of damage are burns, cracks and gouges. Even this minor damage which affects the clear topcoat creates an unwanted appearance.
SURFACE BUFF can properly mechanically polish and lightly hone most stains and scratches to renew the beauty of your cultured marble.
