S-B-S Sealer is a specially formulated tabletop
sealer recommended by the manufacturer, and
should be applied prior to using any alternative
stone-top table outdoors. The sealer will protect the
tabletop from fading in the sunlight and will bond
below the surface to eliminate peeling. Maintaining
the protective sealer is very important!
After cleaning, rinse with plenty of clean water
to remove any soap residue. Dry thoroughly to prevent residue from minerals that might be present in
the water, even softened water.
With S-B-S Sealer, special care or cleaning
materials are not required; however, avoid petroleum solvents, which can break down and weaken
the protective qualities of the sealer. Soap and water
are all you need. If, by mistake, a solvent is used, and
it has affected the sealer, do not worry. After it is dry,
simply add more sealer to restore the finish.
