Miracle Sealants Penetrating and Impregnating Sealers
Penetrating and Impregnating sealers are the most popular choice for protecting surfaces against stains. Miracle Sealants penetrating sealers work by depositing liquid-repelling polymers into the pores of the material. The polymers are delivered into the pores by either a water-based or solvent-based carrier, and because solvent-based penetrating sealers are typically able to penetrate deeper, they are more effective for very hard to penetrate materials like dense granite, polished marble, and porcelain.
By using a Miracle Sealants sealer, the material will be protected be from different types of stains. A stain may be water-based (tea, coffee, soda, etc) or oil-based (cooking oil, body oil, grease, etc). When selecting a Miracle Sealants Penetrating sealer, pay attention to the types of stains the sealer is designed to protect against: not all sealers will protect against both water-based and oil-based stains. For many applications, protection from just water-based stains is sufficient. Other applications, such as bathrooms or kitchens, should have protection from both water-based and oil-based stains.
Miracle Sealants carries both premium and economical penetrating sealers. Premium sealers will offer superior stain protection and last longer than the more economical formulas. While premium sealers will give the best protection against stains, no sealer is designed to make the surface 100% stain proof and staining can still occur in some cases if the spill is not cleaned up in a timely manner. Miracle Sealants penetrating sealers will also help prevent staining from mold, mildew, dirt, and grime as well. .

Miracle Sealants Enhancing Sealers
Penetrating sealers are designed to leave a natural finish and not alter the look of the surface. Some penetrating sealers, however, are also a type of enhancing sealer and in addition to providing stain protection, will also darken and highlight the natural color of the stone and tile. This darkening of the surface is often referred to as a "wet look" and is not the same as a glossy or shiny finish. The sealer will not sit on the surface like topical sealers and coatings.
To get an idea of how a Miracle Sealants enhancing sealer will look, wipe a damp towel or paper towel across the surface. The darkened surface is approximately how the surface will look after applying the enhancer. To achieve a deeper color, multiple coats of the enhancer can be applied. Miracle Sealants enhancing sealers are excellent for reviving old, faded, and weathered surfaces along with any surface where a richer color is desired.
