Why Protect Your Countertop?
Natural stone is simply beautiful and makes a great option for countertops. However, being a natural stone, it is very porous and vulnerable to stain and etch. The calcium in natural stone chemically reacts when it comes into contact with acidic compounds from food (such as lime, coffee, wine, orange, vinegar, and tomato), and commonly used household cleaners.
A professional stone restoration can remove etching, but in some high-traffic areas where the stone is consistently exposed, acid etching can be an ongoing problem.
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.
Once Install XPEL countertop protection film, those same compounds will have difficulty etching into it.
