With numerous stone varieties available, including delicate exotic material, manufacturers of stone care and maintenance products continually work to develop new formulas for their product lines that help to repair, clean and protect stone surfaces. The following is a collection of some of the latest product introductions.
Skudo Universal Plus from Tenax is a strong water-based sealer that provides excellent water-oil stain protection and is ideal for compact materials and stones that are hard to seal. It does not change the appearance of the material and won’t alter the natural breathability of the stone.
Stonetech Natural Stone Countertop Sealer is ideal for interior and exterior installations, including countertops, shower walls, thin bed walls and cement backer board walls. Recommended surfaces include marble, granite, limestone, quartzite, Bluestone, travertine, sandstone, slate and flagstone.
Surface Bonder Ultra is a surfacing adhesive made for an ultra-wide range of surfaces and applications. Surface Bonder Ultra works in extreme weather conditions, indoor and outdoor, and has a high UV resistance, so colors will not fade in the sun.
HMK® S748 Color Enhancing Sealer is a ready-to-use, solvent-based impregnator with color enhancing properties for use on natural stones, artificial stones and terrazzo surfaces that reduces the penetration of water, dirt, oil and grease.
