Tech-Dry® Tile and Grout Sealer is a high quality, deeply penetrating water repellent silane/siloxane sealer for tiles and grout. This impregnant is designed to deeply penetrate into the capillaries of masonry surfaces and provide the substrate with a high quality water repellency.
It is most suitable as a bathroom and shower sealer, a sealer for balconies and a kitchen sealer for tiled walls and floors. It can be used for glazed or unglazed terracotta, ceramic, porcelain tiles or other polished masonry surfaces.
The sealer is also suitable for a wide variety of applications including use as a stone and brick sealer, concrete sealer, sealing pavers, tiles and grout. This water repellency significantly reduces the absorption of water or efflorescence or other water-borne staining materials which are responsible for the bulk of the deterioration in masonry building materials.
The treatment will not significantly change the appearance of the masonry substrates and the vapour permeability. It is also suitable for other permeable masonry building substrates and can be used for both internal and external impregnation.
Tile and Grout Sealer can be applied using brush, roller or spray. However, the product is preferably applied by saturation flooding using a hand pressure spray or airless spray equipment. A second application should follow immediately after the first coat is absorbed by the surface. This is termed a “wet-in-wet” application. The object is to saturate the surface to allow a better penetration.
