Types of granite countertop sealers are something to consider when purchasing a new countertop. While the granite stone itself can last for years without damage, the sealer you choose could extend the lifespan of it. Secondarily, the chances of staining the granite countertop can be lessened when you choose the right sealer. At A&S Granite and Marble, we strive to keep you informed about what types of stone might be best for your kitchen. Helping you protect that stone is always one of the top priorities on our list. We’ll review a couple of our top choices when it comes to granite countertop sealers and let you know how they work.
Granite Countertop Sealers
Tenax Hydrex Impregnating Stone Sealer
The Tenax granite countertop sealer is mineral-based. This sealer dries completely invisible. Tenax Hydrex Sealer does not alter the stone’s color or shine. Tenax Hydrex Impregnator Sealer is an excellent product for sealing all natural stone. Hydrex will not change the color, shade or gloss of the stone. In fact, once it dries, Tenax Stone Sealant will be absolutely invisible but will give your stone total protection against stains.
Dry Treat Travertine & Granite Sealer
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. Thus, there is no way for the potentially staining substance to soak in or bond with the stone.
It works kind of like opposing magnets… you can’t get them to stick together.
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.
Granite Countertop Sealers, in conclusion
Both of these granite countertop sealers allow for a clear, invisible coat. Both of them also offer protection against stains. The main differences between the two products are the cost and the warranty. The Dry Treat sealer comes with a 15 year warranty and it’s ability to chemically bond with the stone makes it the better option and is available as an upgrade for your countertop purchase.
