Is it better to seal stone tiles before or after grouting?
You can use Seal-Guard® prior to grouting as a grout release and after grouting to complete
the sealing process. One coat prior to grouting facilitates easier clean up of grout and prevents
grout stains on the tiles. After tiles are laid and grouting is finished, an additional application of
Seal-Guard® should be done as per container instructions on the tiles and grout lines.
How long does the product last?
A lifetime on vertical surfaces. On floors, etc, it will last for years. However, on heavy walkway
areas or heavily used areas such as shower recesses, the areas should be checked every couple of
years and re-sealed if necessary.
What are the general step-by-step instructions on how to use the product?
First you always start with a thoroughly clean surface, ensure that
the surface is free from dust and dirt. Apply the first coat & when dry,
usually around 20 minutes apply the second coat. A lambs-wool applicator or buffing
pad is best to use depending upon the size of the area.
What is the best method for application?
You can apply the product with a lamb’s wool applicator, paint brush,
roller, mop, pump- up sprayer, etc. Whatever suits you best!
Never pour straight onto the stone.
How do the products work? What do they do?
Our unique sealers are impregnators that penetrate through the surface of tiles and grout to
help stop penetration by oil and water-based stains. They also help stop soiling.
The impregnators are not coatings, so there is no film or membrane on the surface of the
tiles or grout. Therefore, the impregnators will not scratch, peel or flake off. Being an
advanced Fluorocarbon formula they can be used on all types of stone.
There are many sealants on the market today, however none offer the
same coverage or longevity. This coupled with superior stain and
soiling protection make Seal-Guard the Sealant of choice throughout

Will your products change the look of my tiles, colour, and texture or give them
a wet-look finish?
No. Our products dry invisible and will not change the appearance or texture of the tiles.

DIRECTIONS: Use as is. Test in obscure area to determine suitability for the intended use.
Surface should be clean, dry and free from any waxes, coatings or finishes. Protect any painted
or stained surface adjacent to application area. Apply to surface in a thin, even coat with a
pump, airless sprayer, brush, mop or roller. One coat is normally sufficient, but a second
application is recommended on more porous surfaces or heavy walkway areas to ensure
complete coverage. Allow twenty minutes between coats. With some highly polished
surfaces, such as granite or marble, an initial coat, followed by a light coat, is recommended.
Before the second coat is dry, buff with a clean cloth. Drying time on a treated surface is
approximately twenty minutes, but for optimum results, the treated area should `be kept dry
and free from soils for at least 24 hours.
