sealing natural stone

The coping around my pool is made of natural Arkansas stone. It is soft and flaky in places and sheds grit and flakes into the pool. Is there a way to seal the stone to prevent this shedding? Maybe an epoxy resin or something?

Stone may be sealed with a good quality penetrating sealer only after thoroughly curing which usually takes 4 weeks on inside work. Follow the manufacturer's directions on the application of sealer. Sealed stone may be easier to clean than unsealed stone and certain sealers also repel stains. However, sealers must be periodically reapplied, especially on exterior applications, and could alter the natural coloring of the stone.
