In daily use, marble floor tile 24x24 will affect the decorative effect due to scratches, loss of gloss, aging and other issues. If it can't be solved by maintenance, then refurbishment is the best way. But what if the marble floor tile bathroom are refurbished regularly and the marble floor tile 12x12 become thinner and thinner? Let's discuss it.
How does regular refurbishment come about?
First of all, there are many ways to apply marble, and most of the marble applications are not regularly refurbished.
Which marble floor tiless need to be refurbished?
For example, the outdoor marble floor tiles, whether it is smooth or rough, is used for many years, and very few people will renovate it. And the indoor marble floor tiles, wall, column, craftsmanship, etc., also rarely need to be refurbished.
Therefore, we can see that the so-called regular refurbishment actually refers to the marble floor tiles in the area of the indoor floor. But in most cases, the ground marble floor tiles will be maintained daily. The function of daily maintenance is to remove the pollution and disease of the marble floor tiles in time, and to maintain the decorative effect of the marble floor tiles for a long time by polishing with chemicals.
So, since there is daily maintenance to maintain, where is the reason for renovation?
At this point in the discussion of the problem, you have been able to touch the essence of the matter.
The "regular refurbishment" of marble floor tiles is actually a last resort method when "even maintenance can't maintain the effect".
So, what factors make the marble floor tiles have to be refurbished?
Factors that have to be refurbished
Serious pollution, disease, aging, chalking, etc. on the surface of the marble floor tiles cannot be removed by simple cleaning or maintenance, and it needs to be refurbished. Severe scratches, loss of gloss on the surface of the marble floor tiles, poor flatness of the foundation, can not be compensated with medicine, no matter how much maintenance can not restore the visually acceptable effect, it also needs to be refurbished at this time.
Acidic material is the most important factor
The above factors cause the marble floor tiles need to be refurbished, which is easy to understand because they exceed the conditions of use that the marble floor tiles should have. But apart from these factors, there is one of the most common reasons. It makes you make irreversible changes to the decorative effect of the marble surface on the premise that you have not done anything wrong. If you want to restore it, you also need to refurbish.
This is the acidic maintenance materials such as crystal powder and crystallizing agent commonly used in the marble market.
As shown in the figure below, this is the effect of shooting on the ground of a store where crystal powder is used to maintain the ground marble floor tiles for a long time. Although the overall effect is acceptable, you can find such small pits and pockmarks all over the ground when you observe it close to the ground.
These pits represent a common problem of crystalline materials whose main principle is acid etching.
Crystallization technology is to use acidic materials such as oxalic acid and fluosilicic acid to etch the calcium on the surface of the marble to form a new calcium layer; generally, wax and resin components are added. Under the action of mechanical rotation, these components generate micro-rheological effects on the surface of the marble floor tiles with the help of high temperature heat generated by friction to achieve a smoothness that can emit light. After drying and solidification, a crystalline bright layer is formed.
Among them, acid etching is the core function of crystallization. This is the principle that brings high efficiency and high gloss of crystallization. For example, the current crystalline powder can generally be made directly after grinding to 1000#, and it can directly make a gloss of more than 90 degrees, or even more than 100 degrees.
However, the factors that determine these advantages of crystallization technology are also factors that determine its shortcomings. These basic principles determine that crystallization technology has essential natural defects.
Natural defects of crystallization technology
One is that the calcium component has low hardness, is not wear-resistant, and is easily soluble in water. In terms of Mohs hardness, the hardness of limemarble floor tiles with calcium carbonate as the main component is only between 4 and 5, and the hardness of the hardest calcium salt is not more than 5. In contrast, the Mohs hardness of ordinary steel is 5.5-6. The sand, which often causes scratches on marble floor tiles and steel, is a fine particle of natural quartz marble floor tiles with a Mohs hardness of 7.
Moreover, calcium salt is easily soluble in water. We know that there are many karst caves in nature with uniquely shaped stalactites, which are the result of calcium carbonate being dissolved, accumulated and precipitated by water for a long time.
This characteristic is reflected in the crystal of the marble floor tiles. Its performance is: whether it is a tool used daily or the sand particles brought by the sole of the shoe, it can easily leave scratches on the surface made by the crystal. A large number of people stepping on it will make the finished crystal face quickly lose its luster. Moreover, as long as it encounters water, such as rain, washing the floor, mopping the floor, etc., the crystal layer will quickly lose gloss and soften under the erosion of water.
Therefore, the maintenance of crystalline materials must be frequently and repeatedly thrown to maintain the basic effect.
