Different Types of Penetrating Sealers for stone floors
Not all sealers produce the same result. As a result this is why The marble Man uses different sealers for different surfaces. Weather you are after a colour enhancing sealer, a surface sealer or you are after a natural look sealer we have one that can suit the application you are after. The main types of penetrating sealers are:
- Penetrating natural look sealer
- Penetrating colour enhacing sealer
- Floor Surface sealer
We recommend against applying surface coatings to natural stone floor tiles. This is due to these types of sealers preventing the stone from breathing. As a result these also eventually peel off the surface and can look very unsightly soon after application. Then when it is time to remove what is left of the coating this can be difficult and can damage the stone in the process. Therefore avoid surface sealers at all costs.
Why Marble & Stone Floors Require Sealing
The importance of sealing often depends on the location and the type of stone. However in general though all stone should be sealed to protect it. Sealing floors is important as stone is naturally porous and therefore absorbs liquids and materials in the surface of the stone and grout. This is due to the capillaries in the stone structure which allow oils, dirt and liquids through. This is the same process that happens naturally when the stone is in the ground. Whether you have Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Granite, Basalt or Sandstone all these material require sealing.
