Why protect with a Sealer?
Grouts are porous and, as a result, they easily absorb grease, dirt and lime scale. Spillages such as wine, lemonades or greasy substances will cause marks and patches in the joints in the floor. Grout between wall-tiles, particularly in damp areas like bathrooms, will become dirty and unattractive as a result of Mould, Mildew and Limescale.
Mould is one of the most unsightly problems, which usually starts off in the wettest area of the room, this could be the bottom of the shower or bath, then starts to spread and if left unchecked could cover a large area of the wall.
Discolouration of grout joints in bath or shower areas due to continued use of acid formulated shampoos and soaps. This causes yellow orange and pink stains to the grout over even a short period of time.
Reduces maintenance and is transparent so not to affect the colour of the grout.
Recommended for use of cementations sanded and unsanded grout joints in interior or exterior ceramic tile installations.
Highly recommended for bath or shower areas to prevent mould and grout staining from continued use of acid and alkaline formulated shampoos and soaps etc.
