Marrble Etching

Has anyone used Vitremela the new etch barrier product by the company Dry Treat. It appears from the YouTube video that it would prevent etching on marble, but I would really like to hear from someone who has personal experience with it.

This is at least the third product name I've seen from them. I had to go through a lot of insisting to get a sample treated with it and was glad I did. To me, the treated surface felt like it had a plastic coating. It took a beautiful natural stone and made it more like a laminate. I'd rather have laminate.

I can't speak for what they are marketing now or even whether it is different in name or substance from what I experienced. Before you pay a significant amount of money and then have to have it periodically retreated (not something you can DIY), make sure you get a treated sample and are happy with both the look and feel of it and the way it performs.

Thanks so much for your info. Hadn't thought of It altering appearance. I certainly will now. Did it it prevent etching? And what type of counter did you end up choosing? Thanks
