Restore,

Sorry you're having a problem. I don't usually recommend that product, but based on its price, it should be a high quality sealer.

If you have sealer left on the surface you did not wipe off the excess after the initial soak-in period. It's kinda important to use the right products AND follow the printed directions.

Jazman: I agree that product may be a high quality sealer, it certainly is well promoted. That plus it contains Teflon - which is marketing-speak for "contains a fluorochemical' which are very good penetrating chemicals in their own right. But right product + wrong application = bad job. And Teflon is a bit of misnomer IMO...but catches people's eye all right!

It may be a combination of the right product + wrong application + applicators error but there's no real proper way of applying a penetrating sealer. IMO it is a case of plain wrong application.

Whatever sealer was absorbed by the polished surface is so minimal compared to the area being covered that it is insignificant. Thus it won't be the sealer that prevents that oil stain from penetrating a polished marble surface. Tell me, have you ever seen a stained polished marble?

I haven't.

We recently installed a black and white checkerboard floor in the kitchen using marble and granite honed tile. We used a sealer which was recommended to us by the folks at our local tile store. I think it's hard to say if it has made a big difference, but the floors look great so I have to assume the sealer is protecting it somehow!
