    I have been working on solutions for engineered Quartz Top Repairs for the last 5 years.
    As we all know, it is near impossible to "match", or even blend-in to a factory finish.
    I am curious how many of you would be interested in learning the techniques I have learned.

    And, I would like to hear about your procedures and techniques that you've picked up from working on manufactured stones like Cesarstone, and other quartz products.
    What works for you?

    I bought all the same products in your photo, very tough...they sell a quartz enhancer that you wipe on that works great though

    I've been using Superior " Lightning" enhance for quartz.
    I use it between step 2 and step 3 pads, and then between step 3 and 3000 on darker quartz products.
    Which Enhancer has been working for you?
    and when do you use it?

    At the end, put a "before" and "after" to highlight the improvement.

    Funny how silestone owners are paranoid about their countertops. I have one that insists that I only use distilled water to clean her countertops, lol.

    Almost as bad as soapstone owners.

    i use to manufacture roxx engineered stone benchtops here in New Zealand
    we used tenax resins and colouring for our joints and edgings ect
    I havn't thought of repair. Maybe something I should look at getting into.
    Do you have any before and after pics Stephen?

    The Video I posted in this string is the best I have at this point.
    I will be testing more Engineered Quartz Colors soon.
    An importer is having me refinish different colors in order to find a procedure for damage that might be done in transit or installation.
    I will keep you posted on this string.

    I am seeing more and more engineered stone so I am very interested in learning how to restore it.
