Grout Sealer - Quart
DESCRIPTION: Safecoat Grout Sealer is a clear, moisture resistant sealer for porous tile grout and other cementitious surfaces. It actually reacts with and becomes a part of the grout, increasing water resistance and minimizing the penetration of liquids, helping to prevent staining and giving a wearable, washable surface. Like all Safecoat products, it is as safe and not toxic as possible, formaldehyde free and virtually odorless, giving off no offensive chemical fumes. Dries clear without discoloration.
USE ON: Unsealed tile grout. May also be effective on a variety of other porous cementitious surfaces (test first). For previously sealed grout, conduct several small test patches for absorption and compatibility.
ADVANTAGES / SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS:
- Good water resistance for up to five years when properly applied.
- Low odor, non-offensive to installer and occupant.
- Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.
- Fights indoor air pollution, seals in the outgassing from the substrate.
- Zero VOC content, meets or exceeds all federal and state air quality regulations, including California.
- Contains no formaldehyde.
SURFACE PREPARATION: Grout must be clean, dry, free from dirt, dust, efflorescence, grease, wax, oil, silicone, tsp/soap, mill scale, oxidation, loose peeling paint or varnish, or any foreign matter/contaminants. Remove all mildew before coating any surface. It should not be necessary to apply a release compound to tiles before sealing, but note application instructions carefully.
COVERAGE: Variable depending on method of application and surface porosity. Generally one quart will cover a minimum of 100 feet of standard grout lines. Do not thin.
APPLICATION: Always have adequate ventilation. Apply to grout liberally and in an even manner, using a sponge, dry lint-free rag, small brush, or any other tool which can be used comfortably. Flood coating is acceptable, but avoid puddling. One coat is generally sufficient.
IMPORTANT: Wipe off any sealer which has not penetrated into the grout within 10-15 minutes; do not allow sealer which has not soaked in to dry on the surface (simply wipe off with a slightly damp cloth or sponge). Always test a sample for suitability prior to full use.
CLEAN-UP: Clean tools and equipment while they are still wet with a solution of SafeChoice Super Clean and warm water.
