Removing Gloss Sealer from a Quartz Countertop
We have just had a Cambria quartz countertop installed. When the backsplash was installed the installer sealed it with Tilelab Gloss Sealer and Finish and he has spilled some of it on the countertop. What would be the best product
to use to remove the sealer from the quartz countertop?
it were a granite countertop (or any other natural stone) I'd suggest using acetone or methylene chloride to strip a sealer....However,
such solvents could potentially damage the resin that colors and binds the quartz of a quartz countertop.
So, DO NOT use solvents or any other strong chemical like bleach or acids on Silestone, Cambria, Zodiac, HanStone, or any brand of quartz countertops. Many chemicals will permanently damage quartz countertops. You may try
using 0000 grade steel wool pad, but go lightly. It should not scratch at all, but again this is a man-made product, so options for repair/cleaning are more limited than with granite or natural stone countertops.But first
, I'd contact the manufacturer and see what they recommend for removing a sealer.
