Sealing is a technique of protecting a natural or artificial material against dirt, spills, common stains (such as food, drink, oil, ink, rust, paints, graffiti), salt attack, efflorescence, freeze thaw spalling etc.
There are many marble, granite, travertine, concrete etc. sealing products on the market: Topical Sealers-Coatings (make film) and Impregnators (do not make film). Art on Polishing uses world leading oliophobic (resistant to water and oil based stains) and breathable impregnating sealers (do not make film). We can offer up to 15 years written warranty.
Pool Areas: Sealing and Protecting From Salts, Chloride and Stains
Marble, Travertine, Limestone and Sandstone Pool areas can be attacked by salt or chlorinated water. These areas need cleaning, repair and protection. We use special techniques and products to clean, repair, seal and protect them from salt attack, efflorescence , freeze thaw spalling etc. We offer up to 15 years written warranty.
Sealed Marble, Granite, Travertine, Limestone, Sandstone, Concrete etc. in commercial areas, residential areas, yachts etc. can be maintained more easily and need professional care (cleaning, honing, polishing, sealing etc) less often. According to the finish of surface (honed, antique, sand-blasted, polished) we can give you care and maintenance tips.
Lasting of Sealing Protection
Every day we read and hear about the effectiveness and lasting of sealers. We would like to inform you about the following:
Most sealers on the market are not efficient, get yellowed by the sunlight and do not mention their last certification (if they have been certified - most of them are not certified). Most impregnating sealing products (even sealers of worldwide and very well-known companies) give real protection for 1-3 years. Colour enhancing sealers that give a "wet look" to surfaces, last much less than typical impregnating sealers. If you have any doubts about how long sealers last before they start to wear out, ask sealer distributors or appliers, to give you certification of an international laboratory, indicating the period of effective protection (time and percentage of efficient protection). Our company uses top worldwide sealers with efficiency and duration certified by international institutes and laboratories. Art onPolishing' s sealing applications are certified and provide written warranty for up to 15 years.
Sealing applications require skills and expertise relevant to the cost and the requirements of use (indoor or outdoor use, how porous the material is, for how many years we need effective protection). Incorrect sealing applications include: i) use of lower quality sealers in applications that are not appropriate, ii) use of smaller quantity of sealer (result is incomplete protection) and iii) much more quantity of sealer than required that creates film, marks and streaks that do not leave.
You can see surface sealing and colour enhancing through photos and videos in OUR WORK section.
