Polishing is achieved by abrasion, passing marble floor by different increasingly fine particle sizes, which give the stone that aspect of "brilliant". Today is mainly used diamond abrasive, which shortens time and get spectacular results, while minimizing the forces working for people and machines with the consequent benefit.

With a smooth, polished shiny surface with almost zero porosity, highlighting the maximum level the structure, color and texture of the stone is achieved.

This finish to be "closed pores", provides improved resistance to stone attack external agents, which can increase resistance to various treatments protection. Significantly, the pores of the stone is never be closed, although with polished it comes to minimize to the maximum.

Here is a summary of photo galleries of the entire work process from the initial state to the end result we leave.
