Stain-Proof Advanced Granite Sealer

 

Looking for SenGuard? STAIN-PROOF = Same Performance, Better Value!

 

Stain-Proof Permanent Marble and Granite Sealer is the next generation in sealer technology providing premium protection against all water and oil-based stains on granite countertops, marble, travertine, limestone, slate, concrete, tiles, pavers, grout, and all porous surfaces. 

Utilizing nano-technology and specially engineered molecules Stain-Proof Sealer penetrates more deeply into your stone for more complete coverage. It forms permanent bonds and creates an invisible, breathable, and long-lasting barrier that chemically repels liquids and far surpasses the performance of standard sealers. 

STAIN-PROOF can be applied indoors or outdoors. Use it to seal countertops, backsplashes, floor tile, shower tile, and grout. Treated surfaces become easier to clean and remain in top condition for longer. It will not change the look or color of your stone and UV rays do not affect or degrade the sealer.

 

COVERAGE: STAIN-PROOF will cover and seal far more stone per ounce than conventional sealers. One bottle covers an estimated 25 - 250 square feet depending on the porosity of the stone. Each stone is different and results may vary.

BENEFITS:

  • Premium water and oil repellence for superior stain protection.
  • Resistance to stains Class 5 (highest class) as tested in accordance with ISO 10545-14.
  • Unique super-penetrating, permanent bonding technology for long-lasting protection.
  • No periodic reapplication is necessary like with standard stone sealers. 
  • Effective on all porous surfaces: granite, marble, and all other types of natural stone, concrete, tiles, pavers, and grout.
  • Protects against efflorescence, freeze-thaw, and salt spalling damage. 
  • Retains natural surface color and finish. It will not change the color of your natural stone or any surface.
  • Treated surfaces are easier to clean and dry quickly even after heavy rain. 
  • Super breathable: Water vapor escapes freely preventing harmful moisture buildup inside the treated material.
  • Suitable for indoor, outdoor, residential, and commercial use.
  • Stands up to alkaline cleaners and pressure hosing.

 

The Difference

Other top marble & granite sealer brands on the market today use fluoro-carbons, fluoro-Teflon, or acrylic polymers to make very good sealers that in some instances offer 5 to 10 years of protection.

However, these chemical compounds contain much larger molecules that do not penetrate as deeply or bond as well. In most cases, you will need to re-apply the sealer in 2 to 5 years.
 
Now, this is vastly improved from what sealers could do just a short while ago, but STAIN-PROOF is the next step in the evolution of sealer technology.
 
Stain-Proof's cutting-edge sealer is engineered to provide permanent protection with only one application (one application may involve 1,2, or 3 coats depending on the stone). It is more expensive. However, long-term it is the better value when you consider that you'll have to buy and apply any other sealer many times to get the same protection.
 
The Whole Story
 
For those who want to know all the details...
 
STAIN-PROOF contains specially engineered modified silane polymer molecules. These molecules are thousands of times smaller than other sealer types. Thus, these molecules are able to penetrate far deeper into the stone and to spread into every pore, crack, fissure and crevice more effectively so you get more consistent and complete coverage. This is especially important for sealing granite countertops in the kitchen.
 
These molecules are also engineered to form chemical bonds directly with the stone that are as strong as the bonds holding the stone itself together. When applied to granite or marble, etc. a reaction takes place. Part of the molecule is attracted to water, so it is drawn into the stone by water molecules in the stone.
 
The specialized molecule then breaks apart while displacing the water molecules. It leaves behind a hydrophobic and oleophobic molecule that binds directly with the stone lattice. The remaining molecule chemically repels oil and water like opposing magnets repel each other.
 
Other marble & granite sealers rely on weak hydrogen bonding and mechanical holding (clogging the pores). STAIN-PROOF becomes part of the stone itself while still allowing it to breathe as it should. And it doesn't change the look or slip-resistance of the stone.

The net effect of this reaction is to change the "surface energy" of the stone. All materials have surface energy. A low surface energy liquid like oil will penetrate a high surface energy material like granite.

The molecular bond created with the stone by the STAIN-PROOF sealer changes the surface energy of the stone so that it becomes lower than oil or water. Thus, when you spill something, instead of the stone quickly absorbing the liquid like a hard sponge, it just beads up on top of the stone dramatically delaying absorption for easy cleaning.

 

Application: (See Application tab above for complete instructions) One bottle of STAIN-PROOF will cover an estimated 25-250 square feet depending on how porous and absorbent the stone is. Every stone is unique so results may vary. It's important to let the stone absorb as much sealant as possible (without letting it dry on top) rather than trying to spread the sealer around to cover as much as possible. One properly applied coat is much better than two thin ones.

 

Also, depending on the porosity of the stone two coats (or even three for very porous stones) may be necessary to properly seal the stone in one application. Simply perform the water test (click here) prior to application to determine how porous your stone is and estimate the possible necessity of a second or third coat.

 

Performing the water test after the first coat has cured for 24 hours will help determine if the stone is effectively sealed or if a second coat is necessary. Although, maximum protection is achieved in several days after the sealer cures completely.

 

Performing a "test" application on a left-over or sample piece of the stone to be sealed is also advisable to help determine the coverage required for an effective application.

 

Sealer Myths: It's important to understand that many myths and misconceptions abound regarding sealers and sealing granite countertops. No impregnating sealer will "absolutely prevent" a stain. Sealers work by radically reducing the rate of absorption of a stone. So, the advantage of applying a sealer is that it allows far more time to clean up a spill. If neglected, a liquid exposed to the surface for an extended period could still potentially stain no matter what type or brand of sealer used.

 

The advantage of applying STAIN-PROOF is that the permanent bonds will not break down with use and exposure to cleaning products like other sealers, so it remains effective while other sealers will require regular re-application.

 

For complete, detailed information regarding sealers and sealer application please consult the All About Sealing ebook.

 

Chemical Etching: Stain-Proof sealer will not protect against chemical etching by acidic compounds. No impregnating sealer will prevent chemical etching that leaves dull and light-colored spots on calcitic stones like marble, travertine, limestone, and (rarely) some granites.

I would just like to say how ecstatically thrilled I am with your product. We recently purchased a home and it had the darkest and cheapest granite in the kitchen and bathrooms but that wasn't the worst part.

We discovered after we left a bottle of mouthwash on the bathroom granite that it was never sealed because the chemicals from the mouthwash seeped from the bottle into the granite! So we decided that even though we didn't like the granite we could not afford to replace it so we had better protect it until we could replace it.

We chose your product to use. I could not believe my eyes. Not only did it make the granite shiny but now nothing sticks to the granite and it actually appears brighter. I can see reflections in it so it looks lighter since the items reflecting are light.

This is amazing. Oh, yes, and it is very well protected as well. I am happy to tell everyone about your product and will purchase it in the future if I ever need to protect granite again!!! Thank you for your product!

I had new granite countertops installed recently. My kitchen is the sole focal point in the house so protecting my investment is the highest priority. I purchased the installation from a box store with the promise that they were adequately sealed. Within days I saw the dark spots where water was penetrating. I did my homework and found Stain Proof to stand alone in a class of its own, providing the best protection available. I finished sealing them several days ago and see a remarkable difference already. Water beads up and does not penetrate.

We applied Stain Proof to our new kitchen granite counters 3 years ago and it was the smartest thing we have ever done. We have had many foods that stain, like beet juice, not leave a mark and have cleaned with just a damp cloth, no soap, no polish, no anything else. Not a mark, not a water stain even where it sits by the faucet. I think it has paid for itself in just the savings on 6 month reapplications of regular sealer. We are about to buy another bottle for our new bathroom counters.

The product went on extremely easily and quickly. It remained looking "wet" for quite some time when applied, leading me to think the stone had very little porosity.
Still, it did add to the luster just a bit. As a result, we have quite a bit of sealant remaining.

Also, a sufficient volume of sealer had not been applied.The stone must be allowed to absorb as much sealer as possible until saturated. In some cases, 2 or 3 coats are needed to effectively seal the countertops and achieve maximum time to absorption / stain resistance where water readily beads on the surface.

Recently bought and applied the product and so far, seems to work exactly as advertised. P.S. Note that you should follow instructions re using a breathing mask/filter when applying...this stuff has a powerful/toxic, smell/impact. -- Jonathan Cohen ++++++++++ CTS COMMENT: Yes, all sealers have fumes similar to acetone or nail polish remover. In most cases it is sufficient to simply open windows to provide good ventilation during application. Fumes quickly dissipate as the liquid part of the sealer totally evaporates and the sealer cures. Once sealer cures it is completely inert, non-toxic and safe for food prep.

I bought 2 bathroom vanities with granite countertop. I applied Dupont sealer bought from Lowes on the 1st countertop and it did not work, still leaving the dark marks from water. I purchased Stain proof sealer and applied on both countertops. Application was quick and easy per the instruction. The second countertop which never had the Dupont sealer was complelty sealed with Stain proof. The first countertop which I applied the Dupont sealer before still has a lightly dark spots if having water for more than 5 hrs. I applied a second time with Stain proof sealer but the problem still persist. But it was improved a lot. Maybe the Dupont sealer prevent Stain proof sealer from completly penetrate the pores. I might seal a third time with Stain proof. +++++++++ Countertop Specialty Comment: Thanks for the feedback Linh. Taking 5 hours to absorb water and darken after sealing is excellent. The granite is sealed. Sealers do not form a shell over the stone. Sealers dramatically increase time for liquid to absorb giving you more time to clean. 5 hours is a long time. Anything over 30 minutes is considered effectively sealed.

WOW be prepared for a shock. This is a very little bottle. I haven't tried it yet, but was shocked at what I got for $150. It's tiny with a couple of cute falsies and a dish cloth. WOW. I will report again after using the product.

=*=*=* ADMIN COMMENT: Yes, this can be confusing, which is why we provide an extensive description of what the product will "DO" versus how much of it is in the bottle... here's why:

The $148.99 is not based on volume compared to other "common" sealers. The price reflects the advanced chemistry and permanent bonding, which no other retail sealer provides.

The kit is designed specifically for DIY use to seal one average sized kitchen countertop (avg = 50 sq ft.).

The bottle is 12 ounces and covers/seals 50-200 sq. ft. of stone as prominently noted in the product description.

For any sealer "coverage" is the relevant measure... not volume. This sealer covers/seals 40% more than standard sealers, so you need a lot less volume. In this aspect a more "green" product.

Also, it is far cheaper than having a pro apply it for $400-$500, which is the only other way to get such superior performance. Cheers!

Application Procedure:

  1. ALWAYS TEST PRODUCT ON A SMALL AREA FIRST and allow a 24 hour cure time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
  2. Ensure surfaces to be treated are dry, clean, and free of residues. Wash surface with mineral spirits to remove residues.
  3. Product is to be applied without thinning.
  4. Generously saturate the surface with product using a low-pressure hand sprayer bottle and spread evenly using a clean paintbrush. 
  5. Surface should have a mirror-like wet look for 3-5 seconds. Avoid contact with surrounding areas.
  6. When the surface becomes touch dry, or after a minimum of 10 minutes repeat Step 4.
  7. After the final coat, wait approximately 10 minutes but before the surface dries, then polish the surface thoroughly with clean, dry, white cloths, towels or similar to remove excess product, moistening the cloth with STAIN-PROOF™ to ease polishing and remove any steaking. Wipe the surface completely dry.
  8. Buff completely dry. Do not allow product to dry on surface without removing excess product and buffing completely dry as indicated in step 7.
  9. Use an organic solvent e.g. methylated spirits to clean equipment.
  10. Sealer will not prevent surface etching, scuff marks, or wear and may lighten or darken some surfaces. This is rare but test a small area first. STAIN-PROOF Original™ will make the maintenance and cleaning of a treated surface much easier.
  11. Once cured, this product is food contact safe.
