Sometimes you may want to draw out the colors of Stone.
We offer several products to Enhance and Protect your Stone Surfaces

enhance the colors in your slate, travertine, or quartzite with HMK Stone Care

We offer Two Options - Impregnators or Topical Sealers

 

What is the Difference?

 

As a professional Masonry Contractor, I have had clients who want to draw out the beautiful colors of stone flooring or countertops. They may like the look of the stone better when it is wet or damp. This is where Color Enhancers fit in. But there are two types, and each has a specific advantage over the other. 

 

Impregnators are my First Choice, as they are Penetrating Sealers that soak into the pores of the stone, rather than lying on the surface. This process is often preferred as it is less likely to be damaged by traffic or by objects or furniture scratching the coating of topicals. Impregnators generally require less maintenance.

 

Topical Sealers are often required if you wish to alter the finish as well as enhancing the color. An example would be adding a sheen or shine to a stone that has a naturally dull or matte finish. This is where a topical sealer may be more suitable. Topical Sealers are also a good choice for heavily textured stone that is difficult to clean due to the deep crevices in the stone. Topicals can fill the deep pores to help make it easier for regular cleaning.

 

Combination is the option that is appropriate when you want a very Deep Color Enhancment AND add a Sheen or Shine in the appearance. You would choose the Impregnator suited for your project, then apply the Topical Sealer on top to achieve your desired finish.

 

Even though our products are Professional Grade, they can be applied by homeowners just as easily as painting a wall. Impregnators should be applied with a quality brush suitable for solvents, with a Sealer Applicator Sponge (Backsplash & small areas), or paint pad. While Topical Sealers are most often applied using our Sealer Applicator Brushes to get a quality finish.

 

 

IMPREGNATORS

EXTERIOR COLOR ENHANCING - S42 Color Enhancer

 

Color Enhancer for Granite, Marble and all Natural StoneReduces penetration of water and dirt on polished, honed or textured finishes. Enhances color. Solvent based, for use on Interior and Exterior stone.

 

HMK® S42 is a ready to use solvent based impregnator for use on all natural stone surfaces (soft and hard), agglomerates, reconstituted stone and terrazzo, and can be used on polished, honed and textured surfaces. By reducing water and dirt penetration, regular maintenance is facilitated. Algae, fungus and other problems occurring with exterior installations are reduced. Color enhancement will bring out the grain and structure of the stone. HMK® S42 is especially suited for wall and floor surfaces. Vapor permeation is only slightly diminished. Please note that HMK® S42 is not effective against oil and grease. For exterior and interior use.

 

 

 

 

ADVANCED COLOR ENHANCING - S44 COLOR ENHANCER-EXTRA

 

Extra Color Enhancing for Natural Stone surfacesSolvent base color enhancing impregnator. For use on all natural stone surfaces. Reduces penetration of water, dirt, oil and grease. For interior and exterior use.

 

HMK® S44 is a ready to use special solvent based color enhancing impregnator for use on natural and artificial stones, reconstituted stone, and terrazzo. It reduces the penetration of water, dirt, oil and grease, as liability to dirt and stains is significantly reduced and subsequent cleaning is made much easier. The level of resistance to water, oil and grease varies depending upon the permeability of the surface. HMK® S44 significantly enhances the color and structure of the treated surface. The more product absorbed into the surface, the better the repelling and color enhancing effect. 

 

 

 

 

COLOR ENHANCER FOR CLAY, BRICK, TERRACOTTA - P28 TERRACOTTA WAX

color enhancer for brick and unglazed tile or terra-cotta 

 Wax treatment for unglazed terracotta, brick pavers and clay tiled surfaces. Solvent based. For interior use only.

 

HMK® P28 is a ready to use natural wax (available in brown and natural appearance) that slightly enhances the color and leaves a satin shine on unglazed terracotta, clay and brick surfaces. HMK® P28 contains additives that give the surface an antique and rustic appearance. Water and dirt penetration is reduced and surfaces become easier to maintain and more durable. Do not use in wet areas such as shower cabins. Note: HMK® P26 Terracotta Care should follow the application of HMK® P28 to help blend in any HMK®P28 unevenness. Allow HMK® P28 to cure for 24 to 48 hours before applying HMK® P26. Note: Both S42 and S44 (above) may be used on unglazed tile, terracotta, or brick as well.
