Alpha Ceramica diamonds are specifically made for granite, not saying they won’t work on marble, just not the best bond for marble as they are too soft. I recommend an epoxy type diamond in which the bond is harder and should provide a better finish on most marble. Typically a 220g, 400g, and 800g should suffice followed by 5X.

Good luck,

Subject: best pads for white marble polishing


Good morning Partners

I have a white marble counter top that needs polishing due to etching.

I have had problems polishing white marble in the past.

I am looking for a several different pads for having options with trying to polish the white marble.

I have alpha ceramic 3” and 5 inch pads the 3 polish and the 5 inch do not.

I don’t know why.  I am open to suggestions on what pads to buy and polishing compounds to use.

I have some quartz polishing pads that seem to polish a bit better.

The finish is a highly polished. I also have klindex pads blue, red, yellow and they have not helped in the past. I also tried 11,000 monkey pads and no luck.
