STAR SHINE is a high-performance, water-based cream polish for use on granite, porcelain stoneware, quartz, and siliceous materials in general.
STAR SHINE stands out for the deep, vitreous shine it is able to leave on surfaces, as well as its ability to definitively seal and close the pores on materials that were opened during the mechanical polishing process, which is the main cause of dirt build upon this type of surface.
The results achieved with STAR SHINE, both in terms of shine and dirt protection, are also extremely durable and resistant over time. This makes it the ideal solution to polish and maintain surfaces that are usually subject to continuous, intense foot traffic, where the product is also able to increase non-slip resistance on dry floor conditions.

STAR SHINE is a high-performing, water-based polishing cream for granite, porcelain tiles, quartz, and siliceous materials in general.
STAR SHINE stands out for the deep, vitreous shine that can provide, as well as its ability to definitively seal and close the pores of materials that were opened during the mechanical polishing process, which is the main cause of dirt build-up on these surfaces.
The results achieved with STAR SHINE, both in terms of shine and dirt protection, are also extremely durable and resistant over time. This makes it the ideal solution to polish and maintain surfaces that are usually prone to continuous, intense foot traffic.
STAR SHINE, like all polishing creams by Faber, will maximize the effect of the polishing process, making the whole operation much easier by effectively replacing the time-consuming final steps in the mechanical polishing process. This means it is possible for the operator not to have to use end-stage polishing grains which drastically cuts the time, energy, effort, and amount of water needed to complete the polishing process.

This product can be used on both indoor and outdoor surfaces.
STAR SHINE is recommended to polish green marble, onyx marble, and all types of marble where polishing powders do not provide the desired results.
STAR SHINE can also be used to polish sandstone, filled basalt stone, and slates, but only after treatment with a polisher using ultra-fine grain (above 3000). In this case, a prior water-repellent treatment may be needed.
In case of application to particularly dark materials, we recommend considering the application of STAR SHINE with the addition of black pigments for a result with depth and evenness from a point of view of black colour, without the presence of any white dots. Alternatively, we can recommend the use of K400 BLACK, specifically devised to leave a full, deep black finish on dark surfaces.
STAR SHINE can also be used to polish the resin part of resin-marble agglomerates, together with a powder polish treatment using a powder for marble. STAR SHINE is also suitable to buff concrete flooring after a mechanical polishing is applied to a surface consolidated with a special consolidating primer (CONCRETE HARDENER)
Single disc machine, which has a power of 2 HP (2.2 HP is preferable); Manual rotary brush.
Cleaning Warehouse can supply the WARRIOR single disc machine, which has a power of 2.2 HP and is optimized for the correct application of any product.
Preparing and cleaning the surface
• Carefully clean the surface, making sure to remove any dust or dirt present.
• We recommend proceeding to apply the product in stages, covering surfaces approximately 1 m2 at a time.
• Never apply STAR SHINE to wet surfaces. STAR SHINE can be used on slightly damp surfaces; therefore, please ensure that the surface to be treated is as dry as possible.
• Apply STAR SHINE to surfaces with a temperature of between +5 and +40°C
• Any adjacent surfaces not being treated with the product must be protected.
STAR SHINE is a white solid compound. It can be returned to its creamy state by shaking the container. Different consistencies will in no way affect the finished results. The product can be applied in both its solid or creamy state since the rotary action of the polishing machine will in any case return the product to its creamy consistency.
After the product is completely dry, no further waiting time is necessary.
Opening to floor traffic
After the product is completely dry, the floor can be opened for use.
For the daily maintenance of a surface treated with STAR SHINE, we recommend: NEUGEL or ALGAFLOOR
For extraordinary cleaning of a surface treated with STAR SHINE, we recommend: FABER 30
For regular maintenance of the shine obtained using STAR SHINE, we recommend: K400 or K500
To protect a surface treated with STAR SHINE, we recommend: HIDRO 150 or PROTEX WB
• Never apply the product to a wet surface
• Do not apply the product to overly heated surfaces
• Apply the product to surfaces with a temperature of between +5 and +40°C
• When applying to recently laid or grouted surfaces, wait for the adhesive or grout to cure completely.
• Before applying the product to the whole surface, it is advisable to test a small, unexposed area or unused piece to check its suitability for use.
