This Market Rasen Residence in the United Kingdom has four elegant bathrooms, tiled in vanilla limestone, classic travertine and silver travertine covering 1206 sq. feet. Soft, porous natural stone surfaces like limestone and travertine are susceptible to water and oil-based staining. This is especially prevalent in a bathroom as the surface is regularly wet.
- Treated surfaces must become easier to clean and stay looking good for as long as possible, withstanding cleaning processes and traffic.
- The wet slip resistant of the surfaces must not be affected
- Superior stain protection
THE STAIN-PROOF® SOLUTION:
STAIN-PROOF Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer, formerly know as META-CRÈME™, was chosen for this project. The limestone and travertine bathroom tiles will be subject to daily water exposure. If left on the surface for an extended period of time, the water could penetrate the pores of the material causing damage to the substrate of the bathroom tiles. A loss of balance and slipping on bathroom floors is a common problem homeowner’s face. A sealer should not make a bathroom surface any more hazardous.
For this reason Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer was used because its superior penetration and water repellency will stop the limestone and travertine tiles from being permanently stained. The sealer will also maintain the wet slip resistance of the bathroom tiles. Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer permanently bonds to the material through a chemical reaction deep inside the pores which is why it stands up to traffic and cleaning. The sealer’s permanency means it does not need to be re-applied regularly so the cost and effort of maintenance is reduced. Acidic substances than come into contact with travertine and limestone will dissolve the calciumi nside, leaving a rough, dull etch mark. It is recommended to avoid using citrus-scented soaps or handwash in bathrooms as impregnating sealers do not prevent acid etching. Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer comes with a 15-year performance warranty when the product is applied by a STAIN-PROOF Accredited Applicator.
