Natural stone has a special appeal when first installed or restored back to its former glory and it can be tempting to keep the floors natural look. However, because stone is porous, it requires either a sealer or impregnator for protection.

Therefore, it’s vitally important to determine whether you need a sealer or impregnator.

Impregnators are formulated to penetrate the stone and protect from within.

By penetrating the stone it provides an invisible coating which helps to prevent any potential contaminate such as spills.

Topical Seals

Using a sealer will make maintenance simpler and easier – creating an easy to wipe surface. The number of applications (coats) will define the finish of the floor. Although the first coat will soak into the floor, the second and third coat of seal will stand proud of the surface, creating an easy to clean, flat area. The more coats of seal you apply, the higher shine you create.

For instance, two or three coats of Natural Stone Sealer will produce a matte finish – whereas four to six coats will leave a silk finish. If you require a higher shine, a Natural Gloss product should be used.

Seals Vs Impregnators – The difference?

Seals – Following a number of coats will develop a topical finish, which sits on the surface of the stone. Seals will slightly change the stones appearance

Impregnators – penetrate the stone and protect from within, not the surface. Impregnators will hardly change the stones appearance.
