Does Porcelain Need To Be Sealed?
What Is Porcelain?
To understand the need for sealing porcelain countertops, it is important to first understand the properties of porcelain. Porcelain is a type of ceramic material that is fired at extremely high temperatures, making it one of the strongest and most durable materials for countertops.
Waterproof Kitchen & Bathroom Countertops
It is important to understand that porcelain is completely waterproof and nonporous. This means that liquids cannot penetrate the surface, so there is no need to worry about sealing. This also makes porcelain easy to clean, as any spills or messes can be easily wiped away without the worry of staining.
Kitchen Countertops That Won’t Stain
Porcelain is known for its resistance to etching and discoloration when exposed to acidic foods and liquids. This makes it a great choice for a busy kitchen or bathroom. Unlike natural stones like marble or granite, porcelain will not change in appearance over time when exposed to acidic substances.
