What Is Stone Etching?

Important to know

Etching - Stone etching refers to the process where an acidic substance comes in contact with a stone surface, like marble, resulting in a chemical reaction that damages the stone's finish. This reaction manifests as dull spots or marks on the surface, which are often mistaken for water spots or rings.

Marble - Marble, in particular, is susceptible to etching due to its calcium carbonate composition. When an acidic substance, such as lemon juice, vinegar, wine, or tomato sauce, interacts with marble, it reacts with the calcium carbonate, creating a dull spot on the surface. This spot is not a stain that can be cleaned, but rather an alteration in the stone's surface.

Different from Staining - Etching is different from staining. While stains occur when a substance is absorbed into the stone, etching is a surface-level mark caused by a chemical reaction. It's important to note that sealing a stone countertop can help prevent stains, but it does not protect against etching.

Significant Concern - For homeowners with marble countertops, etching can be a significant concern. Even with careful use, the occasional spill is inevitable, and over time, these etch marks can detract from the beauty and elegance of the marble.

Solution - Opal Anti-Etch - This is where solutions like Opal Anti-Etch come in. By providing a robust barrier on the surface of your marble countertops, it prevents acidic substances from coming into contact with the stone. This protective layer ensures the longevity of your countertops, maintaining their pristine beauty and shine, and prevents etching from damaging your marble countertops. With Opal Anti-Etch, you can enjoy your marble countertops to the fullest, without the worry of etching.

Can you destroy a $30,000 marble countertop … Nicea DeGering: Oh, there’s natural stone countertops, those marble countertops, difficult to care for whether they’re in your kitchen or your bathroom. In this sponsored segment, we have Adam and Sarah Anderson from Sheerstone US joining us with tips and tricks on how to care for your marble. Welcome you two to the show. Sarah Anderson: Thank you. Nicea DeGering: I have not seen that before. That’s pretty funny. Adam Anderson: It is funny. You’re right. Nicea DeGering: Because it is stressful. I mean she’s being dramatic. Adam Anderson: Yeah. Nicea DeGering: But when you do cut on the marble or you do put citrus, can it destroy your countertop? Adam Anderson: It can, yeah. Your acids, just your orange juice, anything with an acid base in it can etch your countertops. Nicea DeGering: Well, and we’re talking to a lot of people out there. Marble very popular and common in people’s homes. Sarah Anderson: Yes. It’s beautiful, soft, very neutral. There’s a lot of people that are putting marble in their kitchen. But it comes with a cost if you don’t know how to treat it and take care of it. Nicea DeGering: All right, you two. So what can you do to protect your marble? Adam Anderson: So what we do is it’s a brand new technology. It’s like the electric car to the automobile industry. It’s called Sheerstone and it’s a process where we come in and seal your countertops. It has changed the industry just like the electric car into the automobile industry. Nicea DeGering: It’s that huge. Adam Anderson: It’s huge. Nicea DeGering: So what is Sheerstone and how does it work? Adam Anderson: So Sheerstone is a sealer process that we use. It’s a UV-cured system. Nicea DeGering: Talk us through what we’re watching, Adam. Adam Anderson: So what you’re watching right now is this is a project we did in Jackson Hole a few months ago. That was a marble countertop that we installed and the clients lived – we installed it and then the clients lived with it for about three months and then we came up and did the system. So this is the system you’re watching right now, the process where you’re – we sand down, take care of all the staining and etching and then we go through and cure it. You see all that bright light that they showed there. it’s a curing system. Nicea DeGering: Oh, the light, OK. Adam Anderson: So it cures the blue, basically the resin on the countertop and when we leave, when we walk out of the house, you can use it immediately. Nicea DeGering: So how long did that take? Adam Anderson: This was a huge kitchen Most kitchens – Nicea DeGering: It was a huge countertop. Adam Anderson: Yeah. Most kitchens take about two days. If it’s a big enough kitchen, it can take a week or more. Nicea DeGering: So Sarah, that was brand new, right? That had only been in the home about three months. What if you’ve had marble for several years? Sarah Anderson: So that was what we were up against. We have a large family. We have eight kids. We’ve adopted five. We’ve done foster care. We’ve had lots of kids in and out of our home and our – we love the look of marble. But it is hard to keep maintained and for us, it didn’t take much and our countertop, we had rings on – you know, next to the sink. The acid when kids would cut oranges, it did not stay looking good and so – Nicea DeGering: So that’s the question for viewers out there. What should they be noticing when they know they need something like Sheerstone? Is it those – the little things that just aren’t coming off it anywhere? Adam Anderson: You know, if it’s a marble, back to fifth grade education, if it’s a marble, it’s metamorphic, it’s going to etch. You can spill milk on it with the lactic acid in it and it can etch. It will take the polish off of it. So a lot of our clients, the red wine is murder on marble and so basically what Sheerstone has done is eliminated all those concerns that people have doing marble in their kitchen. Nicea DeGering: It’s completely durable? Adam Anderson: Yeah. It’s completely durable. Nicea DeGering: What have you tested on it, you two? Adam Anderson: We’ve actually put muriatic acid on it thinking, oh, it’s not going to work. I mean muriatic acid is going to dissolve everything in your studio. We put it on there thinking, “Oh, it will go through,” and I forgot about it. Left it on there for an hour and it was amazing. Nicea DeGering: Nothing. Adam Anderson: Nothing. So … Nicea DeGering: In an hour. Adam Anderson: Yeah, and it has got like a ten-year warranty. The product does itself and then locally here in the Utah area, we actually do a 20-year guarantee. So even if you have your countertop repaired, the day somebody leaves after repairing it, it can be damaged. Nicea DeGering: All right, you two. How old can my countertop be? Sarah Anderson: It can be – it doesn’t matter. There’s no limit on that. They can come in. They can refinish it and then put the Sheerstone on and it can look – the day they walk out or the minute they walk out, it looks beautiful, brand new, perfect. Nicea DeGering: OK. So look at the difference Sarah, just what you’re talking about. Sarah Anderson: Yeah. Nicea DeGering: That side treated with Sheerstone and the side that is not. Totally different. Sarah Anderson: Crazy. Adam Anderson: Completely. Sarah Anderson: Yeah. Nicea DeGering: I love that you said you’ve turned the industry on its head with this product. Adam Anderson: Yeah. It eliminates the concern with the marble. Nicea DeGering: Really? Adam Anderson: Yeah. Nicea DeGering: All right. How can I viewers get it? Adam Anderson: Yeah. We’ve got a website. You can go to the website. That’s Sheerstone dot US – or sheerstoneus.com. Nicea DeGering: It’s on your screen, everybody. Adam Anderson: It’s on our screen. Nicea DeGering: Yeah.

      Reagan Leadbetter: We’re giving our homes a bit of a glow-up in today’s sponsored content. Kyle from Sheerstone is here with more on how to get the ultimate protection for your natural stone. Hi Kyle. Kyle: Hi. How are you doing? Reagan Leadbetter: You will get some fondue at the end of this. Kyle: Oh, good. Yeah. I can smell and all that. Reagan Leadbetter: I know. It’s amazing, huh? All right. We’ve been home so we know the wear and tear that we’ve had on our countertops. Tell us about Sheerstone and how we can make those better. Kyle: So one of the most desirable materials that you can use in your home is marble. Everybody loves marble countertops but everybody is afraid to use marble because everybody has heard the horror stories about staining, etching. Reagan Leadbetter: What can happen to marble? Scratched? Kyle: Well, scratching, you can scratch anything. So it can be scratched but staining and etching are the two probably the biggest complaints that we get with marble countertops and this –Sheerstone actually eliminates that. I mean it will not stain and it will not etch. Sheerstone itself actually warranties it for 10 years and if Opal Luxury Surfaces actually does it here locally, we tack on another 10 years. That’s how confident we are in the product. It just will not – there will be no staining and no etching from that. Reagan Leadbetter: Oh, wow, Kyle. And countertops are such an important part of your home. Kyle: Yeah, people love their countertops. I mean that is probably one of the biggest decisions and selections that people go through. They fall in love with their countertops. It’s the centerpiece of their home and … Reagan Leadbetter: Kyle, my kitchen is my favorite. Kyle: It is. Reagan Leadbetter: It’s everybody’s favorite. Kyle: It’s everybody’s favorite. Yeah. Reagan Leadbetter: And we gather there so much right now. Kyle: Yeah. Reagan Leadbetter: Do you have to use Sheerstone when you’re just newly applying or can this be something that you do after? Kyle: No, this is something we can come in and restore if you’ve been living with your countertops and, you know, we’ve had people come and refinish and refinish because marble can be refinished. But you have to – as soon as it has been refinished, it can stain immediately the next day. When we come in, we actually – we do refinish the countertop. We put this ultra-thin coating on top of it. You wouldn’t even know it’s there. People – 100 percent of the time, people love the feel of the Sheerstone after it’s done and yeah, we come in and it’s permanently protected and so tomorrow, if you spill orange juice, it’s not going to do anything. Red wine, you know, anything on that countertop is – nothing is going to get through and it’s antimicrobial. So it’s food-safe and it cleans up very easily. Reagan Leadbetter: Oh, I like an easier clean-up process, Kyle. Kyle: Oh, yeah, yeah. Reagan Leadbetter: You mentioned marble. Can this be done on any type of stone? Kyle: It can be done on any type of stone. But its main benefits are – well, etching is a huge one. Staining, it can. But it’s more for metamorphic stones which are marbles, limestones, travertines, those types of tops. It can be put on anything but it would be kind of a situation. We do have another sealant that we use that just protects against – those other stones don’t etch but we have another Opal Premium Sealer that we use for just stain protection. So we can seal any countertops out there but the Sheerstone itself is more for just the metamorphic stones, the marbles and limestones. Reagan Leadbetter: And you were talking about how long it lasts. You add another 10. Kyle: Yeah. We’re so confident in the product that we double the factory warranty. So this product comes out of Australia and so they offer a 10-year warranty on it and we’ve tested it. We’ve put it through all kinds of abuse. We’ve put muriatic acid on the surface, which would eat a hole through marble and it – actually forgot about it and left it sitting there for about two hours. I meant to let it sit for 30 minutes to test it and it wiped right off. Reagan Leadbetter: Oh, wow. Kyle: It didn’t touch the surface. Reagan Leadbetter: Kyle, do you have it in your kitchen? Kyle: I do. Yeah. Reagan Leadbetter: Of course. Kyle: So, yeah, you got to have it. Reagan Leadbetter: If I want it in my kitchen, how do I get it? Kyle: So you can go to our website. It’s www.sheerstoneus.com. There’s an 800 number there you can get a hold of. There’s a sales, you know, technical services if you wanted to talk to me. But yeah, and you can get a hold of us through there. Request a quote online there or give us a call and we can stop out and take a look. Reagan Leadbetter: How soon can you get this? Kyle: Immediately. Reagan Leadbetter: Immediately. Kyle: Yeah. If you call us, I mean we’re booked out a little ways, you know. Reagan Leadbetter: OK. Kyle: But if you called and wanted to get this on your countertop, we could do it within a couple of weeks. Yeah. Reagan Leadbetter: All right. Thank you so much. You just saw their website and we will put all the information for this sponsored content on our website. Glad you’re here. Yeah. Drive by and get a little … Kyle: Yes. So I got to … Reagan Leadbetter: … cheese on the way. Kyle: … do the tour. Reagan Leadbetter: All right. Thank you, Kyle. Kyle: Thank you. Reagan Leadbetter: Keep it right here.
