Why does natural stone etch & stain?

Etching & staining is an age-old problem that has affected every aspect of the stone industry. Those pesky ring marks, wine stains and lemon marks eat away at the stone and are impossible to clean. Everyone from housekeepers in a hotel to designers who specify marble in homes has dealt with unhappy customers because of the etching & staining problems with stone.

What is TuffSkin?

TuffSkin is a proprietary structural sealer, made from high-tech polyester that is gas permeable but liquid impermeable. Our hard coat technology resists scratching and provides a long product life. TuffSkin adhesive is designed specifically to work with stone.

Benefits of TuffSkin

TuffSkin Surface Protection solves the marble etching and staining challenges in the hospitality industry and the commercial and residential markets. TuffSkin does what traditional stone sealers have never been able to achieve. Use the stone you want, TuffSkin provides the protection you need.

Why does TuffSkin Protect?

TuffSkin is the best solution for marble etching & staining problems because we have created a liquid impermeable barrier between the stone and anything that can damage it. Conceptually like a screen protector for your phone, except on marble. TuffSkin is also gas permeable, which allows the stone to breathe and not damage it. We are not a liquid or gel product, we are a high tech polyester film that has been specifically designed to maintain stone.
