We do a good number of black and white checker board floors-you should have quite good results after polishing with 5X.The final pop and depth of color will be added when you hit it with crystallizer.As far as the gloss meter goes like Randy stated you are working with 2 different materials-the black will read higher than the white usually.You should be getting readings over 90 and up to 100 on the black.Gloss meters will make you crazy!On Sat, Feb 18, 2017 at 7:58 AM, dean <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:I haven't seen three samples yet, but my business partner said he is hitting upper eighties but said it doesn't look deep and rich. What should these Stones be reading when properly polished with a gloss meter? I know these guys have a tendency to try to make everything perfect in that might be what's going on right now.-------- Original message --------From: John Freitag <jfreitag@

These floors are not hard to do.
Start with a 220, 400 and 800 then polish with 5X polishing powder.
