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

WEAR IMPERVIOUS GLOVES, such as nitrile, and eye protection when handling product.

Test product in obscure area to ensure desirable results.  Apply liberally using a new mop, lambswool applicator or sponge. Maintain a thin, even coat to cover surface, working-in sealer for 5 – 10 minutes. Surface must stay wet letting sealer soak for additional 10 minutes, for maximum penetration. Immediately after, wipe off any sealer completely before it dries. If initial coat has been absorbed, apply additional coat 15 minutes after first application. To prevent grout from staining porous stone, apply two coats after stone has been bonded for 24 hours or apply to face of stone before installation.

Drying Time

Drying time 2 – 3 hours. Do not clean for 24 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.

Expected Wear

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.
