Porous synthetic or natural stones tiles will need to be sealed to prevent permanent staining. From the time they are laid, tiles can be exposed to efflorescence, salt attack, spills, weather, animals, children and tradesmen, so it is best to seal them sooner rather than later.

Polished porcelain and R rated non-slip tiles and grout lines can attract staining and be difficult to clean. Fusion Restoration has a very specific sealer for sealing ceramic tile that will penetrate dense surfaces. Our skill employees will take care to remove any unwanted sealer residue from the surface before it hardens.

All natural stones are acid sensitive. For example: Red wines, fruit juices, vinegars, cokes and alot of cleaning products can etch into your stone giving a patchy, dull or smokey look. This can only be corrected by grinding or polishing. The right sealers will protect from acid etching.

Concrete Pavers look awesome when they are new. Unprotected fading from the sun and discolouring when penetrated by foreign matter will set in quickly. Moisture absorbing below the surface of a paver and freezing at night will deteriorate a paver quickly and reduce its life.

Fusion Restoration recommends floor tile sealing and sealing tile grout for protection from the above things. Sealing tiles will work by making what was once a porous surface that would attract and draw in oils, waters, moulds etc, to now a treated surface that will repeal these penetrates. In return your job of hosing, moping or sweeping will now be a lot more effective and easier. A advanced tile cleaning service must be done before any sealer is applied.

Penetrating Sealers

Penetrating sealers work by sinking into the tile and protect it from within. They deposit either a natural or synthetic resin into the pores of the tile below the surface. After the sealer is applied the water or solvent evaporates and leaves the resin in the stone. It then hardens and chemically bonds with the stone to form an invisible protecting barrier that prevents the surface from absorbing unwanted matter. The major benefit to penetrating sealers is that they let tile breathe so sealer delamination excluded. The right choice for travertine tile sealing.

Advantages

  • Will not change the appearance of your stone
  • Let the tile breath
  • Can recoat on top without having to strip old sealer
  • Won’t wear or scratch
  • Very quick drying

Film Forming or Topical Sealers

Topical sealers form a film on the top of the surface and provide a coating that protects it from damage. The purpose of the sealer is to reduce the natural absorbency of the substrate so foreign materials will not sink in but will instead remain on the surface until they can be wiped away. Gloss and colours can be added to these sealers along with hardeners and non slip grits if needed. Garage, office and factory concrete floors really benefit from colour coating epoxy sealing.

Advantages

  • They can provide a shiny, glossy wet look to the surface
  • Will protect stone from wear
  • Very easy to clean
  • Excellent against acid attack
  • Will increase property value with a customisable look
