How to Seal & Maintain Polished Granite, Marble, Travertine & Limestone

Product recommended: Glaze ‘N Seal Stone Sealant Impregnator is a water base sealer that provides a no shine “natural look” and premium resistance to stains, oil & water on polished natural stone. Can be used interior and exterior.

Application equipment: White cotton towels, clean lambs wool applicator, dense sponge, sprayer or paint pad applicator.

Procedure: Read product label directions carefully and test a small area to insure satisfactory results before proceeding.

Pre-Seal:

Grout:
Grout according to manufacturer’s directions Clean as you grout to minimize water contact. Be sure stone is clean, free of grout haze, and dry before final seal of stone and grout. Wait at least 24 hours, or more.

Seal:

  1. Sweep or vacuum surface.
  2. Apply one (1) liberal, even coat of Glaze `N Seal Stone Sealant Impregnator with a lambs wool applicator, sponge or sprayer. Apply extra sealer on grout areas.
  3. Wipe surface dry of excess sealant after 10 minutes with clean, white cotton towels or rags.
  4. Allow surface to dry at least four (4) hours, or overnight, before allowing limited traffic.

NOTE: Glaze `N Seal Stone Sealant Impregnator is a water-based, “natural look” sealant that forms a barrier that resists moisture and stains – even oil! It is especially appropriate for high traffic areas and in food preparation and serving areas where maximum stain resistance is desired. For denser surfaces or when water resistance is a concern, (such as granite counter tops or a shower area), we recommend Glaze ‘N Seal’s solvent base Stain Defense Sealer be used instead of Stone Sealant Impregnator.

OPTIONAL APPROACH: If color enhancement is desired consider using (Glaze ‘N Seal Stone Color Enhancer a penetrating, non-film forming sealer that will enhance a porous surface). Read directions carefully and ALWAYS test first.
