    2. Use permeable stone protectors to protect the stone.

    In order to reduce the water absorption rate of the stone and reduce the degree of adhesion between the sediment and the stone, it is the best way to use the permeability stone protection agent. Before the installation of stone, it is best to perform the following two protections: First, the internal protection of the stone, that is, the use of the permeability of the silicone resin for protection, to minimize the water absorption rate; second is the surface protection of the stone, ie Fluorine-containing polymers with water and oil repellency properties are used to reduce the damage to stone caused by mineral deposits and soapy water and other acidic or alkaline stains.
