Now permanent protection for marble, limestone and travertine countertops and vanities.
Marble, Limestone and Travertine protection
Nothing looks or feels as good as a natural stone bench top. A protective coating ensures it will look as beautiful in 10 years time as the day it was installed. CounterLux coating is an incredibly tough, ultra-sheer, UV-Cured coating that is almost undetectable. It prevents your stone from etching and staining.
Why use a coating?
Do it once – do it right. Don’t waste time, money and effort on annual resealing.

Surface Staining and Etching
Surface staining is where a chemical has left a coloured mark on the surface. This stain/mark may be sitting on the surface or have penetrated into the stone depending on how porous the stone is. Penetrating Sealers will buy you some time to remove the offending chemical before the surface is permanently stained. This will vary depending on the sealer, stone and chemical involved, some chemicals can stain in minutes.
Etching is a totally different problem. A lot of problems that are associated with a majority of stone surfaces are that they are actually etched not stained.
Marble and Limestone are composed of calcite which is highly sensitive to acids spills which corrodes the surface (etching) thus damaging the polished or honed finish. Even acids in water can affect some stones leaving a white ring from a glass left on a bench top.
Why use a coating system on stone? The coating is a barrier over the entire surface like a layer of thin clear liquid glass filling the imperfections leaving a smooth surface that prevents any materials/chemicals from coming in contact with the natural stone’s surface.
Yes the coating 100% prevents staining and etching.
The coating is invisible.
Yes we can finish the surface to varying degrees of reflection.
The coating is the same hardness as the marble.
