    SHEEN | SEALER

    MATTE: Matte sealer offers a protection from water absorption. Exposure to heavy moisture and/or foot traffic may lead to discoloration, darkening, and staining over time.

    To increase longevity, we recommend sealing with Miracle Sealant Porous Plus, for a matte finish, or Ultra-Low VOC Sealant for a satin finish as an added layer of water repellent.
