Expected Wear:
Tile & Grout Sealer Pro will provide premium protection for up to 5 years. However application methods, weather conditions, traffic, harsh cleaning methods and stone type will affect wear. Avoid use of solvents, strong acids and strong alkalis for extended sealer life.
Cleaning with Actichem Proneutro is advised.
It is recommended that the sealer be re-applied every 2 to 3 years where harsh conditions exist.

Considerations:
Not to be used as a sub-terrain waterproofing. Should not be applied if temperature is above 40 degrees or if rain is expected within 2 hours of application. If rain has preceded the application, the surface should be allowed 24 hours to dry completely.

How to use

Read and understand the SDS before use
Always pre-test in an inconspicuous location for sensitivity to chemicals.

Coverage can vary dramatically depending on the degree of porosity, but is normally 5 to 10 m2 / Lt per coat for open structure, highly porous substrates. And 10 to 20 m2 / Lt per coat for dense, less porous substrates.

Note:
Application on large concrete areas should be based on a preset coverage rate using a dedicated sprayer or painting equipment. No subsequent removal of excess product is required.

Surface Preparation:

  • New installations must be fully cured before application of Tile & Grout Sealer Pro (Min 48 hours, however some concrete installations may take up to 7 days to cure. Confirm with the structural engineer).
  • Existing stone and grout must be totally clean, dry and chemical free.
  • Coverage can vary dramatically depending on the degree of porosity, but is normally 5 to 15 m2 / Lt per coat for open structure, highly porous substrates and 10 to 20 m2 / Lt per coat for dense, less porous substrates.
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight. Temperature must be between 10°C and 28°C.
  • Highly absorbent surfaces may require two coats.
Dilutions

Ready to use

Application
  1. Apply 1 to 3 coats of Tile & Grout Sealer Pro by generously saturating the surface using a polish applicator, roller or sprayer to an area which can be easily reached. (Approximately 15m2).
  2. Ensure even coverage.
  3. The surface must be shiny wet with a liquid film for at least 1 minute. For very porous substrates more sealer may need to be applied.
  4. Allow 5 – 10 minutes for the sealer to absorb into the surface and then move the excess product with a squeegee to a new section.
    If a second coat is to be applied, wait 20 to 30 minutes and repeat the process.
  5. Using absorbent toweling or applicator, wipe off any sealer remaining on the surface after 10 minutes of the last application. Moisten the towel with Methylated Spirits to remove residues which have dried on the surface.
  6. Allow 12 hours before returning area to traffic. Keep dry for 24 hours. Achieves a full cure in 24-48 hours.
