Sensa® Granite with SenGaurd™

You will find that SenSa® Granite offers an array of colors to match any decor or project. Every SenSa® Granite slab has SenGuard™ technology applied in Cosentino’s modern fabrication facilities. This SenGuard™ protection allows Cosentino to offer an industry leading 15-year warranty against staining. It ensures that the natural beauty of your SenSa® Granite countertop will remain intact for years to come.

Now homeowners can rest easier with new SenGuard™ stain protection. Granite countertops are the pride of every kitchen and bath until a stain ruins the beautiful surface. To ensure long-lasting enjoyment from your SenSa® Granite countertop, Cosentino has incorporated SenGuard™, a revolutionary breakthrough in granite protection.

What is SenGaurd™

SenGuard™ is a protective agent on a small molecular level that penetrates the stone’s porous surface to form a chemical bond.

This protective agent changes the surface tension of the stone, creating resistance to liquids and providing durable and long-lasting stain protection.

There are many sealers on the market that claim to safeguard granite surfaces. Common granite sealers contain large molecular weight agents. These agents create a mechanical bond that protects granite by blocking or sealing the porosity of the stone. However, these types of sealers maintain a weaker bond that is easy to break down through the use of common household cleaners; therefore, periodic re-application of the sealer is required to prolong the life of granite. Furthermore, large molecular weight agents do not allow the stone to breathe, thereby reducing the resilience of the sealer.

Unlike common sealers, SenGuard™ offers a superior protective shield that chemically anchors to the stone’s surface creating a permanent bond.

Benefits Of SenSa®

SenSa® granite is maintenance-free, premium natural granite brought to you by Cosentino, a world leader in the natural stone industry for over eighty years. SenSa® granite is treated with a revolutionary stain protection treatment called SenGuard™ and comes with a 15-year stain warranty.

SenSa® will withstand the use of typical household cleaning chemicals

You can clean the SenSa® Granite countertop surface with products like Windex® and 409 (ammonia, alkaline or acid cleaners will not damage the SenGuard™ protection) as well as with products containing bleach.

SenSa® will withstand high temperatures.

Hot water, oil, food, or pots and pans do not harm, change, or effect the SenGuard™ stain protection.
The use of trivets is always recommended to protect natural stone from thermal shock.

SenGuard™ protection penetrates into the granite surface and is anchored to the stone.

Stain protection is durable and will not wear off as common sealers do over time.

SenSa® with SenGuard™ is certified by the GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute.

Safe surface for indoor environment.

All SenSa® colors have been tested for low risk exposure to Radon & Radiation.

What is Radon? What makes SenSa® safe for my home?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas found at varying levels in the air throughout the globe. Radon gas is produced by radioactive materials present in igneous rocks in the earth. When these radioactive materials break down, the gas is released. When inhaled, the gas can contribute to the development of cancers in the lungs. SenSa®’s commitment to environmental safety and clean indoor-air quality means that we are dedicated to producing countertop surfaces that are not only beautiful and durable, but also safe for your family and home. While testing and research continue every day, SenSa® Granite has been tested and found to be low or free of radon gas.
