You'll find more info on sealers below:

  • Impregnating sealers soak into the stone and fill in any open voids or pores so that a staining agent cannot. More on sealing granite & stone with a penetrating sealer.

  • A topical sealer creates a barrier on the surface of the stone to protect it from foot traffic, soil, dirt, oil, etch marks (somewhat) and stains. It sits on top of the natural stone and forms a short lived protective film. Although, MOST stone is NOT sealed with a topical stone sealer.

  • Using a natural stone sealer for sealing granite, marble, limestone, or travertine? Compare the advantages and disadvantages of a penetrating sealer to a topical sealer for use on stone.
