6a.At this point, the Granitex machine is outfitted with a power squeegee and filled with glaze. This replaces the power roller and was specifically designed by Vortex engineers to work with the Granitex system. It is used to put down an exact measure of the Granitex Clear glaze over the chips. Not enough glaze and you end up with dull spots that expose the raw chips; too much glaze and you get "pooling" or puddles forming on the surface that again can give you an uneven look or modeled surface. The Power Squeegee produces the exact amount of glaze every time for a uniform texture.
