Mirror Image Marble offers cutting edge technology to provide superior stone protection against staining and etching for all of your stone requirements.
Most brands offer a warranty and in fact some may void your warranty if you seal it. If staining does occur, we recommend calling the manufacturer and if you require further assistance, call us at Mirror Image Marble to help determine the right solution for you.
Guaranteed for 10 years, such ultra-sheer, 100% clear coating systems can be applied to porous stones such as marble, travertine, limestone etc. with precision, giving peace of mind to enjoy your stone investment for years to come.
By sealing your kitchen benchtops and bathroom vanities we guarantee:-
*A totally sealed surface that has outstanding stain proof and etch proof qualities including protection from everyday items such as red wine, vinegar, lemon juice, soy sauce, soap scum, shampoos, conditioners, makeup, nail polish remover and perfumes etc
*A 100% hygienic surface that does not harbor bacteria
*A completely smooth surface sealing and covering open fissures, cavities, faults and joins
*A worry free practical stone surface that looks totally natural
*An invisible coating that can be finished to the same appearance as natural honed stone, or finished to varying levels of gloss as required.
Both Clearstone and Sheerstone are ideal for kitchen benchtops, laundry benchtops, bathroom vanities, bars, dining, coffee and side tables. The experienced team at Mirror Image Marble will advise on the most suitable and cost effective product to suit your stone surface requirements.
Following the initial curing of the stone coating, the surface attains a hardness of approximately 2 [similar to that of limestone] on a MOH scale [used for stone] of 1 to 10 with the maximum hardness of approximately 4-5 [similar to that of marble] being reached by three months, depending on the local temperatures.
Scratches may occur prior to full surface hardening but these can be easily removed.
Whilst one of the additives in the stone protection is an exclusive clear fire retardant, it is not recommended to place hot pans or hot dishes directly on the surface.
We always recommend the use of a chopping board.
Do not use sharp knives directly on the benchtops surface.
