Date: Tuesday,

May 30, 2017

Time:  1:00 PM

Duration:  1 hour

Host:  Jim Olson 

Presenter: Tom Plaskota

Meeting Description:
This educational webinar will focus on Sealer and Cleaner products currently used in the Stone & Tile Industry. It will provide an overview of the chemistry used to create these specialized products as well as provide basic guidelines as to when a particular type of product should be considered. Sealing natural stone and absorbent masonry has, in recent years, almost become a requirement for Stone & Tile contractors. As consumers have become more conscious of maintaining finished surfaces contractors have needed to acquire the specialized knowledge necessary to educate their customers. This webinar will provide an understanding of basic sealer and cleaner chemistries, information which is crucial to choosing the best type of product for a given situation. We will also discuss the mechanism of porous masonry staining and how that knowledge can help make informed choices about sealers. With cost, profit, and customer satisfaction of prime importance, understanding what the main active ingredients of a product are best suited for provides the ability to get the job done quickly and successfully.
