Be careful with the lippage .Even small Lippage will show the on blacks. Grinding is a good option but if the white is a thassos be mindful of the two different hardness issue.
MB20 will work well but you know the key is in the honing.
Take the floor high .
What is the white stuff.if it is white granite it will polish well but thassos likes hot compounds.
So you will need to polish twice
Mb22 works great. Like all products it has limitations as well.
On epoxy terrazzo most compound don't work well.
Take up high with diamonds and then crystallize lightly..
Thanks John and Stu,It's a small floor and has got minor lipps. I hoped not to use diamonds, but may need to. How would Mb-20 work?Stu, btw, a friend of mine in Florida said he used mb-22 on terrazzo and loved it. I have an epoxy terrazzo floor job soon. Would it work there?Jason

First I would hone the granite up to 3000 at least a possibility go higher up to a 5500 seeing you have a combination stone both light and dark. The dark granite will be the challenge, going higher with the diamond will make the polishing process easier. I would not recommend crystallization on these granite floors. I would use the granite polishing powders and water and completely burn the powders into the stone. Hang on to your machine it going to grab !!!!!.
Or you can try using the MB20 polish this would probably work also. Follow the instruction on the container and you will do fine.

I would appreciate some thoughts on this one I have never come across.......I need to polish a light and dark granite together. How difficult will this be? Should I use light granite powder with water on the entire floor? It seems like I would be safer doing this than using dark powder and crystallizer. Any other product?
