Surface protection is critical for preservation and reducing costly replacement. There is NO SUCH thing as permanently sealing any surface. And few products on the market are designed to properly seal or protect your surface.
Impregnating sealers are most often recommended to help protect your absorbent surfaces from absorbing stains. These sealers work kind of like scotch guard, buying you time to properly clean your surface before the surface begins to let that staining agent sink in.
The impregnating sealer has either a water-based, solvent-based or a silicone-based liquid that has little micro-beads in it. The liquid solution will carry the micro-beads into the open pores, allowing them to set in place while not suffocating the surface. The liquid solution typically cures in 72 hours leaving these micro-beads in place blocking these pores that tend to drink the stains, buying you time to remove the staining agent.
This does not prevent etching and in most cases, etching can happen quickly. This also does not prevent dirt from getting onto your surface. You will still need to complete cleaning processes and use other items for protection such as coasters and matts to prevent etching, breaking of the sealer and burns.
And in areas with lots of usage of water, cleaning products and foods, you will still need regular maintenance to ensure the sealer is still working because like all things, wear and tear will still occur.
