This long-lasting, water-based sealer actually repels dirt, oil and stains allowing for easy cleanup.

For interior and exterior use.
As a sealer or grout release for all stone surfaces, unglazed tile, porcelain, clay pavers, concrete, brick, masonry, grout. For interior and exterior use.
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.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE EYES AND SKIN. Wear skin and eye protection. Contains diethylene glycol monobutyl ether and fluorophosphate esters. 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.
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.
Apply SurfaceGard® 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. Polished or dense surfaces usually require one coat. Grout and other porous surfaces usually require two. 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 a sponge or white polishing pad 60 minutes after application.
2 - 3 hours.
Clean tools and hands with soap and water immediately after use.
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.
Lasts up to 20 years under normal conditions depending on hardness and texture of surface. Use factors, cleaning routines, harsh cleaning methods, sun exposure and weather conditions will affect wear.
