Limitations to the Product

  • Do not allow sealer to dry on tile surface because a residue will be visible. If this occurs, use Aqua Mix® NanoScrub® and scrub with a nylon pad
  • Do not allow sealer to come in contact with any non-recommended surface
  • Sealers will not prevent surface wear or etching from acids or caustic chemicals

Application of Product

Read entire label before using. Apply by spraying or using a soft-bristle paintbrush or sponge paint applicator. NOTE: Be sure to wipe surface completely dry within 5 minutes of each application using absorbent paper, cotton or microfiber towels. After 2 hours conduct a test to determine if surface is completely sealed by applying water droplets to the surface. If water is absorbed, apply an additional application. Wait 2 hours and repeat the test. May be reapplied as needed to grout joints that are clean.

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 of sealer will be necessary to keep sealer at 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
  • Weather conditions, harsh cleaning methods, and high-alkaline, acidic, or solvent-based cleaners will affect wear
