Technical/Installation

General Surface Prep

USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.

Surface should be dry, clean and free of waxes, sealers or finishes. New installations need to be dry 48 hours before application. Protect surrounding surfaces. Test product in an inconspicuous area to ensure desirable results.

Health Precautions

FLAMMABLE. MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE EYES AND SKIN. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Wear skin and eye protection. Do not breathe vapor or spray. Contains alkyl alkoxy silane. If in eyes, flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If on skin, wash with soap and water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting, seek medical attention.

Limitations to the Product

  • Do not allow sealer to come in contact with any non-recommended surface as product is not completely removable
  • Sealers and finishes should not be used with Enrich 'N' Seal™
  • If Enrich'N'Seal™ is not wiped completely dry within 5 minutes, a residue may form. If residue occurs, contact Technical Services for additional options
  • Keep floor surfaces dry and clean to reduce possibility of slip-fall accidents. Routine pressure-washing will affect expected wear
  • Sealers will not prevent surface wear or etching from acids or caustic chemicals

Application of Product

Read entire label before using. For new installations, Enrich 'N' Seal can be applied to a dry surface as soon as 48 hours after grouting. Surface must be clean, dry, and free of existing sealers or coatings. Apply using a sponge, brush, paint pad, cotton towel, or sprayer. NOTE: Avoid overlapping and rundown. On vertical surfaces, apply bottom to top or apply to each tile prior to installation. Be sure any sealer that does not penetrate surface is wiped completely dry off surface within 5 minutes of each application using clean, dry, absorbent paper, cotton or microfiber towels. If sealer residue is not completely removed from stone and grout surface within 5 minutes of application, a residue may form. If 2 or more applications are used, allow a minimum of 30 minutes drying time between applications. Some highly porous surfaces may require an additional application after full cure insuring that all residue is removed within 5 minutes. 

Pre-Grouting Application

Apply over clean stone or tile a minimum of 2 hours prior to grouting - follow application procedures above.

Drying Time

Ready for surface traffic 2 hours after final application. Keep dry for 12 hours. Achieves full cure in 48 hours.

Cleaning of equipment

Clean tools with mineral spirits immediately after use.

Storage

  • Close container tightly after each use
  • Store in original container only
  • Store and use between temperatures of 45°F to 85°F (7°C to 29°C)
  • Dispose of residue or any unused leftover product in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local requirements

Product Maintenance

Do not use cleaners containing ammonia, acids or bleach. Use an appropriate TileLab® or Aqua Mix® neutral cleaner. Tile industry experts recommend periodic testing of sealed surfaces. Apply a few drops of water on the surface. If it soaks in, an additional application will be necessary to maintain peak performance.

Expected Wear

  • Will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency, and type of maintenance products used
  • Exterior applications may require more frequent reapplications
  • Weather conditions, harsh cleaning methods, and high-alkaline, acidic, or solvent-based cleaners will affect wear
  • Expected wear of all sealers is dependent on many environmental issues and intended use. Review our technical bulletin, TB84, at our website for more information.
