We are building a new house and have installed Silestone kitchen
countertops. When the installers put the countertops in place, they
used a cut-off grinder with masonry cutting wheel to cut out the holes
in the countertop for the cooktop and the sinks.
They left the scrap pieces of Silestone with me. I want to use these
scraps to make a table top, a board on which to knead dough, and a top
to put outside next to my charcoal grill.
Problem is the edges of the Silestone scraps are rough.
The installers had to cut a couple of my backsplashes and they
polished the cut ends using what looked like sanding discs on the cut-
off grinder. I think that all I need to polish the edges of the
Silestone scrap is something like a buffing disk with different grits
-- start with maybe 60 grit, go to 180 or 220 or more as the Silestone
Anyone out there know how to do this??
you have to use much more fine grits. 120, 240, 400, 600, 800, 1500, 3000,
and final buffs are used. you can get them in places that sell to granite
polishers. for example,
There are many advantages when you use Silestone: the surface, that is
made from natural quartz, is very resistant to stains and scratches, and
tends to fluid intake.
