Depending on how the stone surface is being used, you will probably want to choose a sealer that is formulated for that stone type. Yet, there are a number of other factors to consider. Is the stone highly porous? What about the finish? Is it polished or honed? Do you want to do more than just seal the material? These, as well as other factors go into your decision on which kind of stone sealer will be the best choice.
Sealers for Specific Surfaces
As we mentioned above, there a variety of factors to think about when deciding on which type of sealer is right for a given application. One of those factors is the surface itself.
Smooth Stone Surfaces
If the surface of the stone is smooth and the material is one that has a sandy type surface, You may find that
Protex Smooth Stone Sealer is what you want. And if you have a surface that has a polished finish, then a good choice would be Hydrex Polished Stone Sealer since it is made to use on those types of surfaces.
Dual Action Sealers
In addition to the type of surface that you are sealing it is good to consider whether the sealer needs to perform a dual purpose. For example, would your stone benefit from having its color enhanced? Using
Ager color enhancing stone sealer to give the stone a richer color might make sense. Or, does the surface need to be protected from graffiti? If so, you will find Glydex Anti-graffiti Sealer has a knack for that kind of application.
As you can see, no matter what what kind of surface or stone material you are working on, there is probably a stone sealer designed for it. And using multiple sealers, each for specific purposes makes the shop even more efficient.
