Different Types of Penetrating Sealers for stone floors
Not all sealers produce the same result. This is why at The marble Man we use different sealers for different surfaces. Weather you are after a colour change, a surface coating or you are after a natural look we have a sealer 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. These types of sealers prevent the stone from breathing. They also eventually peel off the surface and can look very unsightly soon after application. Then when it is time remove what is left of the coating this can be difficult and can damage the stone. Avoid surface sealer at all costs.
Types of Stone that should be sealed
The importance of sealing often depends on the location and the type of stone. In general though all stone should be sealed to protect it. Sealing floors is important because 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 allows and liquids through. This is the same process that happens naturally when the stone is in the ground. Weather you have Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Granite, Basalt or Sandstone all these material require sealing.
