Modern Stone is known for their commitment to being on the front lines when it comes to developing sealing, cleaning and stripper solutions for maintaining natural stone, tile and grout. Here are some of their latest innovative solutions.
Barrier EXT solves the common problem of moisture becoming trapped under sealers that are applied to the surfaces of outdoor stone and masonry. This chemically resistant sealer bonds to surfaces to create a hard layer of protection that repels dirt and resists stains. But its most impressive quality is that it allows water vapor from the substrate to pass through its hard coating. Spalling within the stone and delamination of the topical layer is prevented.
