Sealing Backsplash


I am needing to seal a new tumbled stone and grout backsplash. My 3 goals are:
1. Seal both with one product that will last
2. Darken grout similar to color when wet
3. Keep natural look of stone without any sheen

Has anyone used a product that would accomplish these 3 things?

Look at Aqua Mix products---Any sealer that will darken the grout will also darken the stone--

Neutral--(clear) or Enhancing (wet look) those are the only two choices I know of---along with different sheen's

Hey CBeaty. Yes to get a sealed stone while also enhancing the the color as well try using Dupont StoneTech Enhancer Pro. Its a high quality product made by Dupont that's easy and safe to use. It will bond to your stone at the molecular level and seal your stone while giving it an "enhanced" color with a wet look. Try maintaining your stone afterward with a neutral cleaner like Revitalizer, this will not break down your sealer extend the the time needed to reseal. Hope this helps.
