THE STAIN-PROOF® SOLUTION:
The crowning feature of this Lighthouse Point residence is the coral stone pool coping. It was therefore imperative that the surface was protected from the salt water pool. For soft, porous materials like coral stone, salt crystals that form below the surface can expand and break off or spall the stone. This creates unsightly holes, leaving the stone at risk to more damage. Due to coral stone’s porosity, any food or liquid spills would have easily stained the immaculate surface.
For these reasons STAIN-PROOF 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent, formerly known as DRY-TREAT 40SK™, and STAIN-PROOF Premium Impregnating Sealer, previously STAIN-PROOF Original™, were chosen for the project.
40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent penetrates deep into a material, chemically bonding to the pore structure. This creates the super, long lasting water-repellent barrier that significantly reduces water ingress. Preventing damaging minerals found in the pool’s water from reaching the coral stone surface is the only way to protect against salt spalling and efflorescence. The UV-resistant sealer will not crack or peel and stands up to traffic. 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent is also an excellent consolidator which will help strengthen the coral stone pavers over time.
Premium Impregnating Sealer was applied two weeks after 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent to provide superior water and oil protection. The sealer deeply penetrates and permanently bonds to a material, preventing a rapid deterioration from UV radiation and foot traffic. Due to the sealer’s small molecule size the coral stone was still breathable after application. This meant moisture could escape as water vapour, keeping the material dry and preventing damage caused by trapped moisture. Premium Impregnating Sealer comes with a 15 year performance warranty when applied by a STAIN-PROOF Accredited Applicator.
