Directions Sealing Marble, Granite and Other Stones with Bullet Proof Stone Sealer:
Ensure cap is closed and sealed, and shake well before use avoiding making foam or bubbles.
Test in a small inconspicuous area, with a 24-hour cure time, to determine the ease of application and desired results.
Allow new grout to cure for a minimum of 72 hours prior to sealing.
Sweep or vacuum up all dust, dirt and debris. Make sure surface is clean, residue-free and completely dry.
Mask off and protect any baseboards or adjacent areas to avoid splashing and overspray onto surfaces not intended to be treated.
Liberally apply an even coat of Bullet Proof Sealer with a using a paint pad, roller, brush or low-pressure sprayer. The best applicator is a small paint pad which allows for you to press the sealer into the stone and avoids wasting product. DO NOT use a cloth or rag!
Evenly distribute Bullet Proof Sealer over entire area to ensure complete penetration.
Allow sealer to penetrate the surface for 10-15 minutes.
During this time, keep the surface wet with sealer, adding more sealer as needed.
DO NOT ALLOW SEALER TO COMPLETELY DRY ON THE SURFACE.
Thoroughly wipe dry the entire surface with clean absorbent towels.
A second coat of Bullet Proof Sealer is recommended for porous or absorbent surfaces and should be applied within 30-40 minutes after initial application.
Should a sealer residue appear, re-wet the impacted section of the surface with sealer. Agitate the surface with a white nylon scrubbing pad to loosen residue and wipe dry with a clean, absorbent towel.
Do not walk on surface for at least 4 hours.
Full cure is achieved in 24-72 hours.
Use of the treated surface may resume in 6-8 hours. If use of the surface must resume sooner, cover the treated surface with red rosin paper to protect it until full cure has been achieved.
Clean equipment with water.
DO NOT use Bullet Proof on ceramic tile where the grout is latex-modified! In that case, use StoneTech All Purpose Grout Sealer (See below), Impregnator Pro (See below) or Sta-Clene® (See below).
Do not allow Bullet Proof to dry on the surface!
Proper Care of Stone Floors and Countertops Sealed with Bullet Proof:
Highly alkaline, acidic, ammoniated, or abrasive cleaners are not necessary for daily maintenance and may also degrade the STONETECH sealer used, adversely affecting stain resistance.
To maintain the stone’s natural beauty, clean surface as needed with Revitalizer™ (See below) Daily Use Stone & Tile Cleaner and Protector.
Tile and stone routine cleaning with a neutral pH cleaner such as All Purpose Stone & Tile Cleaner (See below) is recommended.
For tough or difficult to remove soil use STONETECH KlenzAll™ (See below) Cleaner, a nylon scrubbing pad or a long handled stiff bristle brush.
Please note: Prior to using any cleaning material on a tile, stone, etc. installation, test a discrete area or scrap piece of tile to insure desired results.
The North American Tile Cleaning Organization compared Bullet Proof Sealer to other sealers: “This sealer also excels in sealing natural stone tiles, slabs and countertops. In our stone sealer review it provided superior protection against the oil based stains. The oil contaminate produced almost no stain on our sealed stone sample. Having superior oil based stain resistance is especially important for countertops since countertops are constantly exposed to greasy food based contaminates. Also the other contaminates produced lower stains than any other sealer in our stone sealer review. The extra money spent on this high quality sealer seems to be worth the price for protecting your expensive stone tiles, countertops and stone slabs.”
NOTE: This product does not enhance or change the appearance of the stone. If you want to enhance the color of the stone, use EnhancerPro (See below).
