At last there is a cost effective solution to a well known and widely experienced problem. Using a skin on your benchtops can greatly protect against potential tenant damage.
Engineered benchtops are durable. However, as stone restoration experts, we receive numerous enquiries each week in relation to damaged quartz. This includes burns from caustic chemicals along with heat and knife damage to the surface. The difficulty in restoring Engineered Stone Benchtops results in very costly repairs that can run into thousands of dollars.
Benefits of stone protection
Using a surface protection solution will not only protect against all chemical damage, it is heat proof to 204 degrees celsius. This makes it a highly practical application in your kitchen.

F A Qs
Is this a UV Coating?
This is not a UV coating it is a film that is applied to the surface of your stone and does not require a UV light to cure it. This provides several advantages over resins and coatings. It is a quick application, whereas UV coatings can take up to 3 days to complete. The skin will not yellow under exposure to sunlight.
What preparation is needed?
Your stone is restored prior to application of the film.
This is not the case for UV coatings, where the stone is cut back to a 120 grit finish to enable the adhesion of the coating. If you have the UV coating, you will always need to have some form of protection for the duration of the stones lifetime. If you have opted for the protective film, the stone will remain in good condition and you will always have the option of removal if you so wish.
Does my stone need to be brand new?
No, as mentioned above, your stone can be restored before application.
Can this only be applied to natural stone benchtops?
No! In fact, our film protection is absolutely fantastic for engineered stone. It is highly recommended for the rental market, both holiday and domestic. Application of the film protects from caustic chemicals which can damage the surface of quartz. UV coatings are not currently available for engineered stone.
What happens when it’s at the end of its lifecycle?
Well there are a number of options! Film protection lasts for up to 10 years within a domestic setting, with regular wear and tear. At the end of this time you can simply remove the film. The stone will be in good condition beneath, or you can have a new film applied. Remember that UV coatings will need to be reapplied for the duration of the stone’s lifecycle.
