Ionically Seal and Protect
Several of our Supreme Surface stone cleaners contain ioSeal™ protectants and ionically bond a protective barrier to a stones surface when cleaning. The sealer and protective barrier is self leveling and won't build up, making it highly resistant against stains and other common issues.
An ionic bond is a an electro magnetic force that binds atoms together. Natural granite emits negitive ions and our granite cleaner contains a cationic protectant and conditioning agent that is considered a positive. When our granite cleaner is applied to the surface of the stone, a transfer of electrons occure. Once the transfer of electrons occurs, the atoms get charged: One atoms gets a positive charge and the other gets a negative charge. This is considered to be an electro static attraction or an ionic bond.
We use a cosmetic grade surfactant (cleansing agent), that's what actually cleanses the countertop. We've coupled it with a cationic protectant and conditioning agent, that ionically bonds a protective component to the granite that will help protect against stains, water spots and more, giving a smooth feel after every use.
