Our marble impregnating sealers along with other sealers have been tried and tested under stringent conditions and each and every time has outperformed with outstanding results.
All natural stones types are porous in their own right some being highly impervious while other just absorb liquids just like a stick of chalk. It is by nature that different levels of porosity is found throughout natural stone and this can be addressed by using the right impregnating sealer. A proper marble impregnating sealer or stone penetrating sealer can treat the surface 1 - 3mm deep by filling all the micropores and capillaries with sealer molecules that adhere to the stone. This will make the surface impervious to absorbing liquids while rendering it still fully breathable.
With many brands in the market and with consumers looking for a bargain almost definitely lands them in trouble. Generic sealers and topical sealers that are sold cheaply at hardware stores actually causes more harm than good. It is wise to choose your marble impregnating sealers wisely to avoid permanent damage to your stone surfaces.
