Use on interior/exterior natural stone, marble, granite, limestone, brick, slate, saltillo, unglazed tile, grout and masonry surfaces. Works on most porous architectural substrates.
Read entire label before using. Surface must be clean, dry and free of existing sealers or coatings. Apply and saturate surfaces using a paint brush, paint roller, paint pad/applicator, clean towel or low pressure sprayer with no more than 25 psi. Note: Do NOT Aerosolize. Be sure that any sealer that does not penetrate surface is polished off surface within 5 minutes of application using absorbent paper or cotton towels. If 2 or more coats are applied, allow a minimum of 2 hours drying time between coats. Achieves full cure in 48 hours. Some highly porous surfaces may require an additional coat after full cure. Clean applicator tools with water after each use.
