All the modern kitchen contains expensive granite marble which is very elegant and beautiful. To keep their integrity and shine intact you would need to take proper care of them.
During food preparations and daily activity, the oil and moisture may get sip into the marble. This reduces the natural shine and smoothness of the stone. If this problem isn’t resolved then the marble may lose its structural integrity and sometimes ends up with permanent stains.
At a situation like this, the granite sealer becomes your best choice. Basically, granite sealer uses a chemical that bonds with the surface to be protected and doesn’t let any stains or oil sip into the marble.

There so many granite sealers are available in the market but nothing works like a tuff duck. Tuff duck may seem like a funny name but once you get past the name it provides protection for all kinds of surfaces including Granite, Grout, Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Slate, and even Concrete!
One of the best thing about this penetrating sealer is that its non-acidic sealer formula will not affect the natural looks of your stone tile or countertop.
The Tuff duck sealer boasts twice the active ingredients compared to leading sealer manufacturers to ensure the proper sealing and protection with the single coat.
This sealer protects the interior surfaces up to 5 years while for exterior surfaces the sealer lasts up to 3 years.
A single quart of this sealer will cover up to 800 square feet and on top of that, it is formulated with advanced, water-based fluoropolymers.
The tuff duck is compatible with most of the surfaces like marble, granite, limestone, slate, terrazzo, travertine, sandstone and other porous stone surfaces as well.
Also, the sealing process is easy too. To seal your grout lines just pour this sealer into a bowl, sock the sealer into a sponge and paint on the grout lines. And after sometime wipe it off and you are good to go.
However, the sealer emanates strong smell when being applied so if you have any pets in the home then I would suggest you keep them outside while applying the sealer.
Also, you need to wipe off the sealer after some time which is very time consuming and furthermore if you don’t wipe off the sealer after application then it might leave a white residue.
TriNova granite sealer is our step-up pick because of its quality features. This granite sealer provides protection for premium surfaces as well as marble.
The two in one Trinova can be used as a sealer as well as a protectant for all surfaces like Quartz, Marble, Granite, Quartzite, and Soapstone.

The only downside of this sealer is its price. The product is a little bit pricer compared to the average sealers and expected wear is about 1 year.
But I would say that considering its features, the product is reasonably priced. It is long lasting quick apply and dry sealer which will save you time and trouble to reapplying the sealer again and again.
StoneTech is another penetrating sealer in our list. This sealer is designed to protect the surfaces for a longer period of time. The small amount of sealing agent covers the large section of surface and a single coat of sealer lasts longer thus it eliminates the need for repeat coating.
