Rybec Tile and Grout Sealing - Protect Your Tiles and Grout

Unglazed Tiles Stain.
All unglazed tiles and grout are porous.  The degree of porosity will vary between different tiles and grout. 
This porosity make tiles and grout susceptible to staining.
Sealing Assists When Spillages Occur.
Sealing an unglazed tile or grout reduces the porosity and provides great stain resistance.  When spillages occur, as they inevitably do, you will have more time to mop up spillages before staining occurs.
Different Sealers Available.
There are various sealers on the market today and they generally fall into two categories - penetrating or coating.  We can advise which sealer will be the best suit your situation to provide years of service. For more information, see the list of Tile and Grout Sealers below.
Penetrating Sealers
Provide maximum stain resistance without changing the appearance of the tile.  These are used on grout, porcelain and where a natural look is desired on slate and terracotta.
Coating Sealers
Available in low or high sheen and are typically used internally on slate and terracotta.
Trained and Accredited.
Rybec Cleaning Solutions staff have undertaken extensive training and are accredited applicators of Aquamix sealers.

Tile and Grout Sealers

Standard Sealer
P
Is a water-based sealer that resists water, oil and acid-based contaminants.  It simplifies maintenance and does not change the appearance of the grout and allows moisture vapour transmission.
P USES: Cementitious sanded and unsanded porous grout joints for ceramic tile installations.  Effective for interior and exterior applications.
P EXPECTED WEAR: Will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency, and type of maintenance products used.  The expected wear is up to 5 years.

Premium Sealer
P
Is a premium, no-sheen, natural looking sealer formulated to provide maximum stain protection, especially in food preparation and serving areas.  May also be used as a pre-grouting sealer, allows moisture vapour transmission and is also an excellent grout sealer.
P USES: All natural stone (such as marble, granite, slate, travertine and limestone), porcelain, quarry, saltillo, terra cotta, cement pavers, masonry surfaces, and other porous tile and grout where a natural look is desired.  Effective for interior and exterior applications.
 P EXPECTED WEAR: Will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency and type of maintenance products used.  The expected wear is up to 15 years.

Coloured Grout Sealer
P Coloured grout sealer restores your grout to its original beauty with an even consistent colour.  Coloured grout sealer will revive and renew discoloured grout so you don't have to replace dirty or stained grout.  You can change the colour of your grout for a whole new look.  Coloured grout sealer will make grout water and stain resistant and will also resist mildew and discolouring.
P USES: Can be used on sanded or unsanded grout.
P EXPECTED WEAR: Up to 15 years, less in wet areas.

Low Sheen and High Gloss Sealers
P Are a specially formulated water-based blend of acrylic polymers that provide both a stain resistant surface seal and a durable low sheen finish eliminating the need for two products.  May also be used as a pre-grouting sealer and is not affected by ultra-violet light.
P USES: Textured natural stone (such as tumbled marble, flamed granite, slate, sandstone and quartzite), textured ceramic, textured porcelain, quarry, saltillo, terra cotta, cement pavers, masonry surfaces and other textured stone and tile where high gloss or low sheen is desired.  Effective for interior applications only.
P EXPECTED WEAR: Will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency and type of maintenance products used.  The expected wear is up to 3 years.

PLEASE NOTE FOR ALL SEALERS: Harsh cleaning methods, high alkaline, acidic or solvent-based cleaners and weather conditions will all affect the expected wear.  It is recommended that only cleaners that are pH neutral (pH7) are used to clean any sealed surface.
