Preparing the Surface:
Surfaces should be clean, and free from any waxes, coatings, or finishes. Always test product in an inconspicuous area for suitability.
When properly applied Grout & Tile Sealer will protect grout, unglazed ceramic tile, quarry tile, porcelain tile, mexican tile, saltillo tile, slate, marble, granite, agglomerates and many other masonry products.
Aerosol Directions for Application:
Hold aerosol can approximately 6-8 inches away from desired surface, press firmly on spray button and apply product evenly over surface to be treated using a sweeping motion, overlapping sprayed areas for best coverage. For wet areas, such as shower recesses, etc., allow sealer to cure at least 24 hours.
Liquid Directions for Application:
Completely wet the surface by applying Grout & Tile Sealer with a paint brush, roller, SureSeal Pump Sprayer or an airless sprayer. Apply one coat with smooth even strokes, lightly coating the surface being treated. At least one hour drying time is recommended before using the treated area. For optimum protection, allow to cure for 24 hours.
Application on Dry or Damp Grout:
On dry grout, make sure grout is clean and apply an even coat of sealer. For damp grout, allow at least 20 minutes after installation before applying sealer. SureSeal will not affect grout's natural curing time. Curing time of sealer will be the same as the manufacturer's stated time for the grout or treated material. Spray, dab, brush, or roll SureSeal onto the grout. Apply an even coat of sealer and let dry.
Pre-Grout Sealer/Grout Release:
SureSeal can be used as a grout release prior to grouting to prevent grout stains and facilitate grout cleanup. On porcelain tiles or other porous substrates, treat the tile with Grout & Tile Sealer. Allow Grout & Tile Sealer 20 minutes to cure and you are ready to apply your grout. After curing (a minimum of 24 hours) markings can be made on the tile with permanent marker or graphite pencil; marks can subsequently be removed by spraying SureSeal and quickly removing the marks with a cheesecloth while still wet.
To clean treated areas, simply mop or wipe with a soft cloth or sponge and a ph neutral cleaner like SureSeal Multipurpose Cleaner. Do not use harsh cleaning agents such as abrasive powders, ammonia, acids, bleach, solvents or abrasive scrubbing pads.
