DuPont StoneTech® Professional Launches Improved Water-Based Sealers for Stone and Tile
BulletProof® Sealer and Heavy Duty Sealer Offer Maximum Protection
DuPont StoneTech® Professional introduced two improved stone and tile sealers at Stone Expo–Las Vegas. DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional BulletProof® Sealer and Heavy Duty Sealer are water-based, environmentally preferable sealers that have been reformulated to improve their performance and make them easier to apply.
“This new generation of water-based sealers significantly reduces the occurrence of residue, making them easier to work with and producing better results,” said Cathy Hampton, general manager, DuPont StoneTech®. “They represent some of the most effective sealers on the market today, solvent- or water-based, and offer maximum protection against water and stains.”
In fact, research by DuPont, using Ceramic Tile Institute standards, showed that BulletProof® and Heavy Duty sealers outperformed competing water based sealers and showed equivalent or better performance against competing solvent based sealers. BulletProof® and Heavy Duty sealers also showed comparable or better oil, water and stain resistance.
“These new formulations provide outstanding protection against stains” said Gerry D'Amore, Product Manager, Marble & Granite Inc., Westwood, MA. “Users of BulletProof® and Heavy Duty sealers will be pleased with the results.”
Because DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional BulletProof® Sealer and Heavy Duty Sealer are water based and contain low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), they are environmentally preferable and compliant with recently enacted VOC regulations affecting areas in Arizona, California, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.
“DuPont is committed to continuously improving our products and raising the performance bar in the industry,” Hampton said. “Everyday DuPont provides customized solutions needed to solve problems and create new opportunities for customers, which in turn allows them the freedom to innovate.”
DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional BulletProof® Sealer and Heavy Duty Sealer will be available nationally in quart, 1-gallon, 5-gallon, and 55-gallon sizes. In addition, both will now be available in pint containers.
