Why Seal? Reaction Time is Important for Stone Maintenance
When a liquid is spilt on a stone, tile or grout surface that has a degree of water absorption, a stain can result almost instantly as the reaction time to clean is short to zero! Sealing these surfaces significantly reduces the degree of water absorption increasing the reaction time to clean and remove these contaminants before a stain can occur and is critical for superior stone maintenance.
Good sealers have reaction times measured in minutes, protecting the surface from primarily water based contaminants and are crucial for stone maintenance and longevity. The best or premium sealers have the longest reaction time measured in hours protecting surfaces from the widest range of contaminants both water and oil based.
