What does the MORE™ Surface Care VOC Sealer protect against?
Natural stone is porous by nature, and if left untreated this can result in damage to the stone. Stone sealers prevent the stone from being damaged by:
- Staining – The most common form of damage to stonework is staining this is caused when untreated or poorly treated surfaces are penetrated by oil, water or other liquids penetrating into the capillary channels. This damage is impossible to remove without damaging the surface further. The Sealant acts as a liquid-proof barrier ensuring that liquids stay on the surface of the stone.
- Salt damage – This can happen when salt in water penetrates the surface and dries. When the water dries, the salt crystallizes and expands causing efflorescence, a gritty deposit on the surface and spalling, which can cause surfaces to become brittle and break.
Applying the sealer to your stone surfaces will ensure that damaging compounds cannot permeate the surface of the stone and protect against these effects. Liquids will stay on the surface and can be wiped off safely as necessary.
The application of a sealer not only protects but can enhance the color, texture and unique character of the stone as well as making stone cleaning quick and easy.
Why do we use MORE™ Surface Care VOC Sealers?
Unlike many other sealers the MORE™ Surface Care range has been designed with safety in mind. They have been designed using the latest water-based technology rather than the solvents based products that many other stone restoration contractors use.
By using this water-based technology, the MORE™ sealants reduce the emissions of volatile organic compounds by up to 90%, meaning less impact on air quality and they qualify for the U.S. Green Building council’s LEED certified projects.
The polymers in this natural stone care product range bond with pores in stone resulting in a durable invisible barrier to stop oil and water based staining.
How does the MORE™ Surface Care AntiEtch™ coating help?
While it is possible for stone restoration contractors to repair minor etching we believe it is better to prevent it from happening in the first place. This is where the MORE™ Surface Care AntiEtch™ coating comes in. this cutting-edge solution bonds with the marble to form a durable, thin invisible coating that will stop caustic solutions from entering the marble surface.
Key benefits of the solution:
- Stops staining and Etching
