Granite Shield - Calcite Based Stone Cleaning, Sealing & Care Products
For Marble, Travertine, Limestone & Quartzite known as Calcite Based Stones
The Granite Shield process on calcite based stones will not prevent surface etching but will reduce it about 80%. Keep in mind not all calcite based stones are alike. Some calcite based stones etch more and deeper than others. Granite Shield does have a repair kit that should etching happen if sealed with Granite Shield sealers the etch removal kit removes etching in minutes on polished or honed surfaces. On deeper etches a professional marble polishing technician may be required. Liquids under a pH7 such as acidic liquids, alcohol and vinegar can etch marble, travertine and limestone if left unattended on your stone's surface. On calcite based stones it is always advised to wipe up spills immediately including water if your water is under a pH7. Some stones today are referred to by some in the stone industry as granite but in fact it is really more like a marble and calcite based. When purchasing natural stone it is advised to do a lemon test by squeezing a fresh lemon onto a sample piece of the unsealed stone to test if the stone etches including Absolute Black granite. In most cases today Absolute Black granite is not a true granite. In most cases today Absolute Black is a gray granite that has been dyed black. When an acidic liquid touches the Absolute Black stone chances are the gray dye will be removed leaving gray rings and spots. A true granite is SILICA BASED and a marble is CALCITE BASED. Quartzite is not a granite or SILICA BASED. Quartzite is CALCITE BASED. On natural stone that is honed and all CALCITE BASED STONES sealed with Granite Shield the cleaner that needs to be used is Nustone Kleen as the daily cleaner and Kleen N Shield at least once a month and when a heavy duty cleaner is needed. Occasionally Kleen N Seal can be used but should not be used as the primary cleaner..main cleald the daily cleaner that should be used is Nustone Kleenica Based and f the stone etches. stone before purchasing to test isstones today are reffered to as granite bug including water if it
