Part of keeping natural stone beautiful is protecting it from damage.
There are various kinds of sealers or protection treatments for natural stone. Most natural stone is porous and some are sensitive to etching. For porous stone you want to fill those tiny holes to protect it from staining agents being able to penetrate. For acid sensitive stone, you may require a protective barrier between not only staining agents, but acidic substances and your stone. The right kind of sealer is determined by several things, including the type of stone, where it is located, and what you want the look to be.
At Beyond Stone Solutions be assured that we only use the very highest quality, professional sealing and protection products on the market today, and we are happy to consult with you on the type of protection you need for your natural stone.

Time to Ditch Those Temporary Protective Solutions
Coasters, placemats, table runners, liners, and the like are noticeable and often unwelcome solutions for stone protection. While they may keep your tops in decent condition, they also cover the beauty and elegance of the natural stone. MORE™ Anti-Etch™ is very unobtrusive, enhancing the appearance of your stone.
Sealers must be continually reapplied and only provide minimal protection against acidic substances — they basically only buy you some time to quickly wipe up the spill. But what if you don’t notice the spill or don’t have time to immediately attend to it? MORE™ Anti-Etch™ eliminates the need for sealing your stone, because it puts a barrier between your stone and acidic substances. MORE™ Anti-Etch™ is great for residential stone protection, but especially ideal for commercial applications in restaurants, wineries, hotel vanities, and more.

The primary job of an impregnating sealer is to fill in the tiny pores in natural stone to inhibit staining agents from being able to leave a stain on your natural stone surfaces. We are an authorized applicator for DryTreat Sealers, a scientifically advanced sealer that leaves other sealers in the dust.
The special penetrating sealer molecules are in Dry-Treat are hundreds of times smaller than competitor stone sealers and penetratemuch deeper into the pore structure, even dense natural stones like granite. Inside the pores our special sealing molecules bond permanently by chemical reactions, creating a substantial, deep oil and water-repellent barrier.
The deeper Dry-Treat barrier, not only provides great surface stain protection, but also protection against more serious common types of damage cause by water ingress (penetration), including efflorescence, salt spalling, freeze-thaw spalling, and picture framing.
Color enhancing sealer is designed to bring out the color in certain natural stones while offering excellent protection. If you like the color of your slate, travertine, flagstone, etc. when it gets wet, then enhancing sealer is the option for you.
The color enhancing products we use are professional quality, high-breathability impregnating sealers that are very low odor. They are safe for use on food preparation surfaces and not sensitive to most common household acidic substances. The result is semi-permanent and provides optimum sealing capabilities protecting against oil and water based staining agents.
