“My surfaces look great when they are wet but look terrible when they are dry”... is becoming a very common statement made by clients with natural stone surfaces.
XO2® Colour & Depth Seal is a state of the art solvent based penetrating and impregnating sealer. It contains a complex, high tech blend of quality solvents and resins to achieve unequalled look and durability. The precise blend of ‘nano’ resins impregnate, react and bond deep into the surface structure protecting it with a repellent shield from food, beverages, water and oil based contaminants. The resins bring out the beautiful depth and colour in the stone by altering the reflection of light off the surface as well as concealing surface scratches and imperfections.
XO2® Colour & Depth Seal is ideal for hard to clean porous surfaces and will leave minimal change to the slip coefficient of the original surface. It also gives you long lasting protection for up to 5 years.

Where not to use Colour & Depth Seal…
XO2® Colour & Depth Seal is not suitable for sealing some non-porous surfaces, surfaces with existing topical sealers and timber.
Life expectancy and coverage
Optimum life expectancy for a correctly sealed and maintained surface is approximately 3-5 years. In some applications it will last longer. For the ultimate protection apply an additional coat post cleaning every 2-5 years as part of your floor maintenance program. Application methods, weather conditions, traffic and harsh cleaning methods will affect wear. Avoid the use of solvents, strong acids and strong alkalis for extended sealer life. XO2® Colour & Depth Seal is a permanent treatment and cannot be removed once applied.
Highly textured and porous surfaces
Professional application coverage is approximately 10-20 square metres per litre of XO2® Colour & Depth Seal for the 1st coat on a porous surface. Coverage for the 2nd coat may be approximately 15-30 metres per litre. 2 coats are recommended and application rates vary depending on the porosity and texture of the surface being sealed. In some instances coverage can be as low as 5 square metres per litre and as high as 30 square metres per litre per coat. Life expectancy and correct coverage (eg. coats/app. rate) are interdependent.
Smooth and dense surfaces
Professional application coverage can range from 30 to 50 square metres per litre of XO2® Colour & Depth Seal for the 1st coat. A 2nd coat may be 40-60 square metres per litre. On dense surfaces 2 thin coats are recommended and application rates vary depending on the porosity and texture of the surface being sealed.
XO2® Colour & Depth Seal is a 1-2 coat system depending on the surface and desired look. Application rates vary depending on the porosity and texture of the surface being sealed. Life expectancy and correct coverage (eg. coats/app. rate) are interdependent.
