Drytreat is the sealer used by many of the “forever seal” companies that promise to permanently seal your stone and countertops with a sealer that will last the life of the stone. A respirator should be used when installing this sealer in any type of enclosed area.

The wine did leave some stain but it was much less than the consumer based sealers we tested.

It states that the sealer will form a permanent bond to the stone or grout that never needs to be reapplied. There are many tile installers and contractors who are more comfortable using solvent based sealers. There are 15 year warranties with these “forever seal” companies but grout and stone sealer warranties are typically hard to enforce in real world situations. It is necessary to have proper ventilation when using this sealer in any enclosed area. The stains from the contaminates were not pronounced and this sealer seemed to do a good job of sealing grout.

Thus, there is no way for the potentially staining substance to soak in or bond with the stone. This action coupled with the repellent properties described above create an excellent line of sealers. Did you test for sealing granite countertops both of these to determine if they even needed sealing? The sealer will just dry on top creating a streaky haze that will need to be stripped off with toxic chemicals. Now, it may be a great sealer when needed, but there is no point in applying a sealer when not necessary. I don’t believe there is another sealer out there that will claim the same thing.

More efficient, effective and easy to use sealers are certainly welcome.

I have installed tropical brown granite counter tops and polished and filled travertine on the floor. Instead of just filling the pores, the sealant forms a permanent molecular bond with the stone to act more as an oil and water repellent than a physical barrier. A special chemical process is employed to yield super-small molecules that allow the sealers to absorb very deep (much deeper than standard sealers) into the stone for superior coverage.

Applying a sealer to a stone that can’t take a sealer is an exercise that most likely will end in maddening frustration. I believe they know that many varieties of natural stone do not need to be sealed and applying a sealer to such surfaces can be problematic. The stone is already naturally stain-proof and applying a sealer (even one that can absorb) just isn’t necessary. You don’t gain anything except an added expense and potentially a nasty stripping job to remove the sealer stuck on the surface. Virtually all other sealers stay on the surface of the material and do not penetrate into the stone.

This in turn creates a deeper barrier of protection within the natural stones, pavers, and tiles and not only protects them against staining but also protects them from natural elements such as sunlight and foot traffic.

I will now have to address the number of coats directly with the contractor plus making sure it is applied with a painters pad or lambswool applicator. Polished travertine is going to have less absorption than honed travertine.

It does matter how many coats applied, as well as method of application.

It’s a high solids, rapid curing, solvent based, impregnating sealer. As mentioned earlier, proper maintenance procedure’s and products are every bit as important as the impregnating sealer and process. If you’ve never used it before, or tried it, how are you going to know that it in fact is better? However, a skilled person in the restoration trade knows what to use and how to use it. Since 5x or some other acidic component is the last step to pop the shine, that would just eat up and destroy the sealer. I know a sealer is better by testing it, preferably not on your customer’s floor. I say in my experience because sometimes in my 22 years of this business, someone will come along and beg to differ. That material has a lot of fishers in it usually (open veins) so just know that even after it is polished, when you stand back and look at it on an angle, you still are likely to see those fishers. I would definitely make a point to ask about the grout specifically when choosing the contractor to hire.

Thanks for any help you can give me to make the right decision! It depends a lot on the finish and absorbency of the individual stone.

It’s application doesn’t require you to be certified, though certification programs for new products may be up and coming. Customers are always being told this is better than that yada yada.

If it’s only one coat, then obviously one bid is more than the other and it becomes a matter of who does the better work, etc. If you don’t want a highly polished surface, you could always ask about a honed finish which won’t show scratches like polished but that is up to you.
