Benchtop Sealing For Commercial & Residential

Benchtop sealing is a must-have for any natural stone kitchen benchtop, bartop, table or bathroom vanity.

Bench top surfaces made of marble, limestone, travertine & onyx (even granite), are prone to staining from a variety of elements. These can include (but are not limited to) soaps, oils, alcoholic beverages, dyes, beauty products and more.

Benchtop sealing is the only proactive step to take in order to avoid surface staining and to keep your benchtops in great condition!

At Clean Seal Australia we offer both traditional benchtop sealing and modern benchtop sealing methods, to suit your needs and budget. Scroll to read more about what we offer!

Traditional Benchtop Sealing (Penetrating Sealer)

Our traditional method of sealing benchtops involves a detailed process of cleaning and preparing your surface (to suit your benchtop’s current state), and sealing with either a Natural Finish or Colour Enhancing Finish.

Penetrating sealers are a liquid-based and work their magic by soaking deep into the benchtop, filling the gaps in the pores of the stone. This is the most effective type of liquid benchtop sealer available and can protect natural travertine, onyx, marble, limestone, and granite surfaces from staining.

Cleaning

Using the highest quality products from Lithofin, our qualified benchtop sealing specialists will assess your benchtop and recommend one of the three available cleaning options.

1) Final cleaning
If your surface is new and is contaminated with dirt, cement film or epoxy resin film we will prepare the surface accordingly to remove these contaminants.

2) Basic cleaning
For surfaces that have already been laid or are very old, they will most likely need to have grease contamination, surface dirt and layers of products that need to be removed.

3) Advanced cleaning
This method is used to remove specific stains and dirt from a surface. These may include cement particles, grease stains, and others.

Sealing Finish

Depending on your benchtop, either a water based sealer or solvent based sealer will be chosen to use on your surface. Clients can choose a Natural Benchtop Sealer finish or a Colour Enhancing Benchtop Sealer finish.

A natural sealer is essentially invisible, and will not alter the colour or surface finish of the stone, whilst a colour enhancing sealer will deepen the colour of the stone.
