Granite Shield was actually the first company to offer granite that never needs to be sealed again if sealed with the Granite Shield process.

Stonemark By Innovative Stone with Permashield, Granite Certified By DuPont, Cosentino Sensa with Sensaguard still say you need to clean up spills immediately on their granite countertops and have requirements or their stain resistant warranty is void.
