    Natural stone and Masonry Surfaces that Bullet Proof Can Seal and Protect:

    Directions Sealing Marble, Granite and Other Stones with Bullet Proof Stone Sealer:

    1. Ensure cap is closed and sealed, and shake well before use avoiding making foam or bubbles.
    2. Test in a small inconspicuous area, with a 24-hour cure time, to determine the ease of application and desired results.
    3. Allow new grout to cure for a minimum of 72 hours prior to sealing.
    4. Sweep or vacuum up all dust, dirt and debris. Make sure surface is clean, residue-free and completely dry.
    5. Mask off and protect any baseboards or adjacent areas to avoid splashing and overspray onto surfaces not intended to be treated.
    6. Liberally apply an even coat of Bullet Proof Sealer with a using a paint pad, roller, brush or low-pressure sprayer. The best applicator is a small paint pad which allows for you to press the sealer into the stone and avoids wasting product. DO NOT use a cloth or rag!
    7. Evenly distribute Bullet Proof Sealer over entire area to ensure complete penetration.
    8. Allow sealer to penetrate the surface for 10-15 minutes.
    9. During this time, keep the surface wet with sealer, adding more sealer as needed.
    10. DO NOT ALLOW SEALER TO COMPLETELY DRY ON THE SURFACE.
    11. Thoroughly wipe dry the entire surface with clean absorbent towels.
    12. A second coat of Bullet Proof Sealer is recommended for porous or absorbent surfaces and should be applied within 30-40 minutes after initial application.
    13. Should a sealer residue appear, re-wet the impacted section of the surface with sealer. Agitate the surface with a white nylon scrubbing pad to loosen residue and wipe dry with a clean, absorbent towel.
    14. Do not walk on surface for at least 4 hours.
    15. Full cure is achieved in 24-72 hours.
    16. Use of the treated surface may resume in 6-8 hours. If use of the surface must resume sooner, cover the treated surface with red rosin paper to protect it until full cure has been achieved.
    17. Clean equipment with water.
    18. DO NOT use Bullet Proof on ceramic tile where the grout is latex-modified! In that case, use StoneTech All Purpose Grout Sealer (See below), Impregnator Pro (See below) or Sta-Clene® (See below).
    19. Do not allow Bullet Proof to dry on the surface!

    Proper Care of Stone Floors and Countertops Sealed with Bullet Proof:

    • Highly alkaline, acidic, ammoniated, or abrasive cleaners are not necessary for daily maintenance and may also degrade the STONETECH sealer used, adversely affecting stain resistance.
    • To maintain the stone’s natural beauty, clean surface as needed with Revitalizer™ (See below) Daily Use Stone & Tile Cleaner and Protector.
    • Tile and stone routine cleaning with a neutral pH cleaner such as All Purpose Stone & Tile Cleaner (See below) is recommended.
    • For tough or difficult to remove soil use STONETECH KlenzAll™ (See below) Cleaner, a nylon scrubbing pad or a long handled stiff bristle brush.
    • Please note: Prior to using any cleaning material on a tile, stone, etc. installation, test a discrete area or scrap piece of tile to insure desired results.

    The North American Tile Cleaning Organization compared Bullet Proof Sealer to other sealers: “This sealer also excels in sealing natural stone tiles, slabs and countertops. In our stone sealer review it provided superior protection against the oil based stains. The oil contaminate produced almost no stain on our sealed stone sample. Having superior oil based stain resistance is especially important for countertops since countertops are constantly exposed to greasy food based contaminates. Also the other contaminates produced lower stains than any other sealer in our stone sealer review. The extra money spent on this high quality sealer seems to be worth the price for protecting your expensive stone tiles, countertops and stone slabs.”

    NOTE: This product does not enhance or change the appearance of the stone. If you want to enhance the color of the stone, use EnhancerPro (See below).

    VIDEO: How to Protect and Seal Marble and Granite with Bullet Proof™ Sealer

    Bullet Proof Stone Sealer provides maximum ‘natural look’ protection for all natural stone including granite, marble, limestone, travertine, slate, porcelain.

    Marble Countertop Sealed with Bullet Proof Premium Stone Sealer Marble Care, Maintenance, Cleaning, Restoration, Protection & Sealing

    Marble is very porous. The best way to prevent stains is to treat the surface with a protective sealer. The sealer fills in the pores and repels spills on the surface, allowing you time to completely wipe it away.

    Marble is a “relative“ of limestone, having been derived from that particular stone, and having undergone further development while deep in the earth over the course of millions of years. Marble is a metamorphic rock, having been subject to tremendous heat and pressure to the point where various fossilized materials, along with the original limestone and sundry minerals, have become re-crystallized. This process changes the rock from limestone to what we would recognize as marble. This naturally decorative material is characterized by vein-like patterns which vary depending on which minerals, and which quantities of those minerals, were present during the re-crystallization of the original limestone parent rock. These patterns offer the unique appearance known to many, as well as the rich range of colors that are some of the most vibrant available in any natural stone.

    Available in a wide range of colors, marble is often used for its honing beauty, but is more porous, softer, and chemically sensitive than granite. Marble surfaces show wear sooner than granite, but can be restored with and polishing more easily. Etched by acids, including soft drinks and juice. Absorbs oils and other liquids and is easily stained. So, putting marble in a kitchen or heavily used bathroom is not a good idea. Best use of marble is for powder baths, table tops, tub surrounds, a marble shower, floor tile and stone fireplace surrounds.

    Composed of Calcite and Calcium Carbonate, marble should be sealed with a penetrating sealer such as Bullet Proof™ or Impregnator Pro™ to prevent staining and reduce soiling. Should only be cleaned with neutral pH detergents such as Revitalizer™ or All Purpose Stone & Tile Cleaner. Because it is soft, it should never be cleaned at pressures above 800 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

    Note that almost all Green Marble is actually Serpentine, not Marble. Black Granite is generally Basalt and is charged a higher import duty.

    Marble ranges from 1 to 4 on the MOH scale (a scale for determining the relative hardness of a mineral according to its resistance to scratching). The hardest mineral, at 10, is diamond. The softest mineral, at 1, is talc (baby powder).

    Black Marble, such as Negro Marquina, is a very soft limestone often mistaken as a marble. Not recommended for interior flooring. Never use a crystallizer on black marble - The stone will blister or spall! If honing or polishing, use extreme care not to leave swirls and do not run until the powder has dried. Check frequently - polishes very quickly!

    If you would like to test your floor or sample of Absolute Black Granite you can use both StoneTech™ Professional Restore™ and StoneTech Professional Klenz-All™ as testing liquids. We recommend you apply each of these cleaners in separate inconspicuous areas, let them stand for 30 minutes, rinse the surface and allow to dry. If the surface turns light gray you should avoid purchasing or using the material.

    Stone Finishes

    • A polished finish on the stone has a glossy surface that reflects light and emphasizes the color and marking of the material. This type of finish is used on walls, furniture tops and other items, as well as floor tiles.
    • A honed finish is a satin smooth surface with relatively little light reflection. Generally, a honed finish is preferred for floors, stair treads, thresholds and other locations where heavy traffic will wear off the polished finish. A honed finish may also be used on furniture tops and other surfaces.
    • A flamed finish is a rough textured surface used frequently on granite floor tiles.

    DO’s and DON’Ts for Marble:

    • DO clean up spills immediately to minimize damage to your stone.
    • DO use trivets or mats under hot dishes and cookware.
    • DO use place mats under china, ceramics, silver and other objects that can scratch the stone’s surface.
    • DO use coasters under glasses, especially if they contain alcohol or citrus juices.
    • DO clean surfaces regularly with StoneTech Professional Revitalizer Cleaner & Protector.
    • DO use StoneTech™ Professional Bullet Proof Sealer to protect the stone.
    • DO use a tray for toiletry products in the bathroom to protect the surface from the damaging chemicals contained in many toiletry products.
    • DO dust mop marble floor tile regularly.
    • DO use door mats inside and out along with runners and area rugs on marble floors.
    • DON’T wait to clean up spills on stone.
    • DON’T use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners or tub cleaners.
    • DON’T use vinegar, bleach, ammonia or other general-purpose cleaners.
    • DON’T use abrasive cleaners such as dry cleansers or soft cleansers.
    • DON’T use alkaline cleaners not specifically formulated for stone.
    • DON’T use scouring powders and abrasives because they will scratch the surface.
    • DON’T Place toiletry products directly on the countertop surface.

    Care & Maintenance of Marble Countertops and Floors:

    Marble etched by acidsMarble is porous, and easily stained and is etched by acids. Avoid setting beverage glasses directly on marble as they leave rings. Fruit juice, carbonated beverages or other acids will etch (remove shiny surface) if allowed to remain on marble. Wipe up acid spill immediately, and wipe surface with wet cloth. If surfaced is etched, polishing may be required.

    Marble is very porous. The best way to prevent stains is to treat the surface with a protective sealer. The sealer fills in the pores and repels spills on the surface, allowing you time to completely wipe it away.

    Dust mop interior marble floors frequently using a clean non-treated dry dust mop. Sand, dirt and grit do the most damage to natural stone surfaces due to their abrasiveness. Mats or area rugs inside and outside an entrance will help to minimize the sand, dirt and grit that will scratch the stone floor. Be sure that the underside of the mat or rug is a non-slip surface. Normally, it will take a person about eight steps on a floor surface to remove sand or dirt from the bottom of their shoes. Do not use vacuum cleaners that are worn. The metal or plastic attachments or the wheels may scratch the surface.

    We recommend that you use care and maintenance products from StoneTech Professional that are specially formulated to protect and enhance the beauty of your granite. Once the stone is sealed, clean up is usually easy. We recommend that you use StoneTech Professional Revitalizer Cleaner & Protector. Revitalizer cleans with a gentle, pH-neutral formula that removes soils while reinforcing the original protective seal to help prevent future staining.

    Image of Protected and unprotected marbleAlthough we usually think of marble as “hard,” it is a porous material. Marble has varying degrees of porosity depending on the type of stone. If left unsealed, spills and everyday messes can easily penetrate the surface. The liquid eventually evaporates but the stain is left behind.

    Removal of oily stains is easily accomplished with StoneTech Professional Oil and Stain Remover.

    DuPont Fluorochemical technology, incorporated into StoneTech Professional Bullet Proof and StoneTech Professional Impregnator Pro, is the most advanced technology available, providing the ultimate shield against both water and oil-base stains. The micro-molecular formula actually bonds with the stone surface to deliver unsurpassed wear resistance and durability. And because the sealer reacts with the stone, you no longer have to worry about its porosity. It works on all types of stone, from ultra-porous Juparana Columbo to super-dense Absolute Black.
