from Bane-Clene® Corp.
Apply StoneTech Grout Sealer to Grout to Prevent Tough, Hard to Remove Stains & Makes Grout Easier to Clean!
Features and Benefits of All Purpose Grout Sealer:
StoneTech™ All Purpose Grout Sealer provides “natural look” protection for grout against stains, oils and dirt.
Formulated with advanced water-based fluorochemicals to protect grout against both oil & water-based stains.
Treated with an antimicrobial agent to inhibit growth of bacterial odors and resist growth of mold, mildew and fungus on the dried sealer.
Protects against oil and water-based stains.
This is a penetrating sealer which means that you should only have to lay down a couple of coats and you’ll be good to go for a decade or more. This can help to offset the high cost when you figure in the maintenance required for non-penetrating seals which must be removed in between applications.
Grout will be easier to clean and will stay clean longer.
Easy to use.
Does not change the color of most grout. However, as with any sealer we do recommend testing a small inconspicuous area for desired results.
Interior and exterior use.
For use on countertops, showers, ceramic and stone tile floors and anywhere grout is found.
Properties of Gout Sealer:
Coverage approximately: 600 - 1000 linear feet per gallon.
Expected Wear (With Proper Care): 3-5 years on interior surfaces and 1-3 years on exterior surfaces.
Directions for Using All Purpose Grout Sealer:
NOTE: Epoxy grout, found in hospitals and most restaurants, does not need to be sealed.
Test in a small inconspicuous area with a 24-hour dry time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
Allow new grout installations to cure for a minimum of 72 hours prior to application.
Make sure surface is clean, dry and free of waxes and coatings.
The surface temperature of the stone should be between 50-80°F before sealing.
Mask off and protect any baseboards or adjacent areas to avoid splashing and overspray onto surfaces not intended to be treated.
Liberally apply sealer to grout lines with a paintbrush or narrow paint roller.
Allow a minimum of 15-30 minutes for sealer to penetrate and soak into the surface.
A second coat is recommended and should be applied 15-30 minutes after initial application as directed above.
A minimum of 15-30 minutes after final application, wipe entire surface with a clean towel dampened with sealer or water to remove any residue and excess sealer.
If sealer was not completely wiped off and a residue appears, wipe entire surface with a towel dampened with sealer. Use a white nylon pad to loosen residue and wipe surface with a clean, white absorbent towel.
Full cure is achieved in 24-72 hours.
Clean equipment with water.
Proper Care of Sealed Grout:
Highly alkaline, acidic, ammoniated or abrasive cleaners are not necessary for daily maintenance and may also degrade the grout sealer, adversely affecting stain resistance.
Clean ceramic tile & grout as needed with StoneTech Daily Use Revitalizer™ Tile and Stone Cleaner and Protector or All Purpose Stone & Tile Cleaner.
For tough or difficult to remove soil use StoneTech KlenzAll™ Cleaner, a nylon scrubbing pad or a long handled stiff bristle brush. Resealing may be necessary after extremely heavy-duty cleaning.
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.
