With proper care, your natural stone countertops are designed to last a lifetime. However, even with regular cleaning, buffing, and polishing, your marble or limestone counters may still suffer from etching, a dulling of the surface due to contact with acidic substances from everyday use. However, thanks to a revolutionary new product called MORE™ AntiEtch™, those etched marble surfaces may become a thing of the past. Statewide Stone Care is now proud to offer this exciting new protectant to our customers in the Tri-State area.

What is MORE™ AntiEtch™?

 MORE™ AntiEtch™ is a state-of-the-art product that provides an invisible barrier against etching on natural stone surfaces. Developed by MORE™ Corporation, this unique formula uses cutting-edge technology to create a long-lasting protective layer on your stone countertops, making them virtually impervious to acidic and other caustic substances that cause etching. This new technology is so powerful and durable that a single application of MORE™ AntiEtch™ can protect your countertop surfaces for up to 10 years!

Why Use MORE™ AntiEtch™ on Your Counters

As durable as natural stone counters can be, the minerals in marble, limestone, and other types of stone surfaces are still vulnerable to acids. Unfortunately, despite our best intentions, it’s nearly impossible to avoid exposing our counters to acidic substances because they are part of our everyday existence. When even mild acids like vinegar or citrus juices come in contact with stone counters, they react with the stone and eventually cause dark, dull spots to appear. These spots are not stains–they are microscopic “etches” that can’t be cleaned off. Once etching occurs, the only way to remove it is to refinish the stone–which can be quite expensive. Even regular application of sealers can’t prevent etching because the acid eats through the sealer, as well.

MORE™ AntiEtch™ solves this problem completely. Its powerful formulation provides a super-thin coating that acidic substances cannot penetrate, keeping your counters looking new and shiny for years to come. Not only will your counters thank you, but your wallet will, too!

What Types of Stone Can MORE™ AntiEtch™ Be Applied To?

MORE™ AntiEtch™ is specially formulated to protect those stone surfaces that are particularly vulnerable to acid exposure. It can be used with confidence on any type of finish, including honed, polished, or leathered finishes. 

MORE™ AntiEtch™ can protect any of the following stone countertops.

Marble

Marble is one of the most common types of counters that is vulnerable to acid etching, mainly because its surface shows the etches so easily. MORE™ AntiEtch™ forms an invisible barrier on your marble counter that will not only protect it from etching, but will also make it easier to clean and maintain.

Limestone

Limestone is another type of stone that can be easily damaged by acid exposure. MORE™ AntiEtch™ will not only protect your limestone counters from etching, but it will also help to preserve the beautiful natural color of the stone.

Travertine

Travertine is another type of stone that is often used in counters and other home surfaces. MORE™ AntiEtch™ will provide long-lasting protection for your travertine counters, keeping them looking new for years.

Onyx

The translucent appearance of onyx can provide a stunning look to countertops, but it can also be very easily damaged by acid exposure. MORE™ AntiEtch™ gives your onyx counters the protection they so desperately need so they will last for many years to come. 

Concrete

Yes–MORE™ AntiEtch™ will even protect concrete countertops. The substances that form concrete (e.g., Portland cement and crushed stone) are naturally porous and highly susceptible to acid etching. With MORE™ AntiEtch™, you won’t have to worry about spilling vinegar, lemon juice, wine, or other acidic substances ever again.

If you’re ready to say goodbye to acid etching forever, MORE™ AntiEtch™ is the answer. Just one application will provide long-lasting protection for your countertops–freeing you up to enjoy them worry-free for years to come.
