Sureshine was asked by a prestigious race track if we had a solution to the etching problem on their marble table in their VIP lounge. The table was approximately fifteen feet long by four feet wide, was polished, and had numerous etch marks from glasses and bottles.
Etched Marble Counter Before Clearstone
In the past we would simply tell the customer that the nature of the stone is to etch and if they wanted it be polished, it must be refinished often. That is no longer the case.
Clearstone is a durable, long lasting, self leveling liquid coating that is applied to the counter and sanded to whatever shine the customers desires. In this case the highest natural looking shine attainable was what the customer wanted. The surface was carefully prepared to accept the coating by Sureshine, a licensed applicator if the Clearstone product. Once the coating was poured and applied and allowed to cure, it was refinished much like the stone to a high polish. The resulting finish will never etch or stain as long as the coating stays intact.
Clearstone will Never Etch and Never Stain. Clearstone comes with a 10 year stain and etch proof warranty.
