Stone Surface Protection Film
StoneGuard® is a durable polyethylene film designed with our ShieldX scratch and chemical resistant coating to help protect your precious stone conference tables, desks, receptionist desks, and countertops from scratches, etchings, and dings. Acidic compounds from food (such as lime, coffee, wine, orange, vinegar, and tomato), and commonly used household cleaners can easily etch into your precious stone tables and desks.
For stone tables and desks placed near windows, ultraviolet rays do accelerate etchings, so the UV rejecting coating adds a new level of protection to the surface. This technology substantially improves the long-term durability and protective capabilities of StoneGuard®.
StoneGuard's unique composition achieves exceptional heat resistance, which when installed onto stone surfaces, can sustain temperatures up to 320°F (the typical boiling pot of hot water is approximately 200°F at its exterior base). Even at up to 320°F, acidic food items and chemicals have difficulty staining and etching into the film itself.
Those same compounds will have difficulty etching into StoneGuard® ShieldX's nano coating. StoneGuard® is an advanced semi-permanent 5.5 mils thick clear protective film that will protect your stone from the elements of daily use yet remain unobtrusive, as it is barely noticeable to the eye and will also enhance the look of your tables and desks. StoneGuard® has a unique optically clear adhesive system that is designed to properly adhere to the porous surfaces of stone tables and desks.
Coasters, placemats, vinyl laminates, and PVC liners are alternatives for protecting surfaces from etching and damage. However, these temporary surface protective solutions are visible and obtrusive.
Manufacturers for granite, marble, limestone, Icestone, and other precious stones for your office tables and desks universally recommend the use of a high grade sealer once every 12 months to protect the stones from the elements of daily use. However, the sealers on the market are only designed to protect from chemical etching. Once StoneGuard® is installed, your tables, desks, and countertop will be protected from chemical etching, staining, scratches, and dings. And the best part? You will no longer need to use sealers once StoneGuard® is installed.
StoneGuard® is constructed with our Patent-Pending ShieldX EtchGuard nano technology. Once you have StoneGuard® applied, there is little maintenance.
StoneGuard's ShieldX anti-etch and heat resistant coating ensures long-lasting use.
15 Years Performance Guarantee from chemicals etching into the stone surface while being protected by StoneGuard®.
How is this different from the sealants and waxes on the market?
Stone waxes and sealants are a form of liquid chemicals that requires reapplication every 6 months. In addition, they provide minimal protection from acidic liquids. StoneGuard® is a 5 mils thick clear film with an adhesive base. StoneGuard® will protect the stone from scratches, dings, staining, etching, and burn marks from excessive heat.
How do I maintain StoneGuard®?
The process is quite simple. Use warm water and a clean microfiber towel.
What chemicals can StoneGuard® protect my counter surface from?
White vinegar, coffee, citrus extract, bleach, red wine, and a host of chemicals and organic liquids commonly found in the kitchen. The nano-particals of StoneGuard® immediately converges to create a non-pourous surface that prevents these chemicals from etching onto the surface of the stone.
Will the film get damaged over time?
StoneGuard® is a sacrificial product that will see natural wear and tear over time.
Is StoneGuard® permanent?
StoneGuard® is not permanent and can be removed.
What is StoneGuard®'s Warranty ?
StoneGuard® comes with a 3 years Limited Warranty from bubbling and discoloration, and a 15 years Performance Guaranty
