Key Features

  • Protects grout and tile against stains


Suitable Tile Types

Seals Saltillo, terra-cotta, quarry and porcelain tile, grout, brick, concrete, masonry and natural stone. Interior and exterior use.

General Surface Prep

Surface should be dry, clean and free of waxes, sealers or finishes. TileLab® Heavy-Duty Stripper & Cleaner or Aqua Mix® Heavy-Duty Tile & Grout Cleaner will clean the surface or strip wax and acrylic finishes. New installations need to be cured 48 – 72 hours before application. Protect painted surfaces. Test product in obscure area to ensure desirable results. Sealer can be applied 48 hours after grout has been installed.

Health Precautions

MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE EYES AND SKIN. Wear skin and eye protection. Contains potassium hydroxide and potassium methyl siliconate. 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. Keep out of reach of children.

Pre-Grout Sealer/Grout Release

Porous tile, such as clay and Saltillo pavers, can be stained by grout during installation. Sealing the tile before grouting will make grout removal much easier. Apply two coats of sealer according to directions after tile has been bonded for a minimum of 24 hours, or apply to front face of tile before installation.

Application of Product

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

Apply liberally using a new mop, lambswool applicator, sponge or brush. Allow it to penetrate for up to 5 minutes. Immediately wipe off any excess. If first coat has been absorbed, apply a second coat following the same procedure. Porous surfaces may require additional applications. Conduct a test to see if surface is completely sealed after 2 hours by applying drops of water on the surface. If it penetrates immediately, apply an additional coat. If a residue is visible on the surface after drying, remove it with water and a sponge or white polishing pad 60 minutes after application.

Drying Time

2 - 3 hours.

Cleaning of equipment

Clean tools and hands with soap and water immediately after use.

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, a coat of TileLab® or Aqua Mix® sealer will be necessary to keep sealer at peak performance.
