MATTE SEALED

Matte Sealer is a great option for keeping the natural appearance of terracotta giving that neutral, relaxed California vibe. This sealant option is as close to terracotta's natural state, while providing mild protection from water absorption. Matte sealed tiles range in tones of rose and peach, with a matte finish.

Matte Sealed Tiles are coated with 3 layers of water repellent sealer. Although this sealer is a great barrier against water, it does not provide significant stain protection from other elements, such as shoe scuffs and ink marks. If this product is used in high traffic areas or areas exposed to heavy moisture, over time, it will darken, discolor and stain.

Following installation, we highly recommend maintaining your Matte Sealed Tiles with Miracle Sealant Porous Plus. Sealer should be applied to your tile following installation, as soon as your grout is completely dry. 1-2 coats of Porous Plus applied annually will provide great long term protection without changing the factory finish of your tile.

SATIN SEALED

Satin Sealer is a low maintenance terra-cotta tile, without it being too glossy that gives a modern look to traditional saltillo. Our Satin sealer offers a comparable level of protection as our gloss seal, making it ideal for high traffic and wet areas. Satin sealed tiles have range of muted terracotta, orange and yellow tones, with a semi-gloss sheen.

Satin Sealed Tiles are coated with 3 layers of acrylic sealer. Although acrylic sealer is a great barrier against staining and moisture, it will show light scratches from natural wear and tear. Saltillo surface scratches are easy to repair, just follow the steps here.

SEALER APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

step 1

Confirm that your grout is 100% dry. In most cases, grout will dry fully two to three days following installation.

step 2

Pour your sealer into a clean plastic bucket. For smaller projects, you may not want to use the entire bottle of sealer. Just make sure to keep about an inch of depth of sealer in the bucket. Lightly dip a portion of the big yellow sponge into the bucket, only allowing one side of the sponge to absorb sealer.

step 3

Begin wiping the installed tile with the dampened side of the sponge. The tile may darken slightly during application but it will lighten once the sealer dries.

step 4

Depending on the type of grout used, you may have to apply extra sealant to the joints. Conventional, sanded grouts are very absorbent. Evenly coat the entire area. If your sponge starts to deteriorate, replace it. Debris from an old sponge can get stuck to your tile.

step 5

Allow 24 hours for the sealer to dry before.
