GlazeGuard® High Gloss Sealer For Porcelain, Stone And Ceramic Tiles
Ultra Durable Clear Sealer for Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone Tile
What Is GlazeGuard® High Gloss Sealer For Porcelain, Stone And Ceramic Tiles?
If you use a product for sealing ceramic or porcelain tile that’s not designed specifically for that surface, the problem is that it’s going to lift and peel.
Standard surface sealers need to absorb into the surface. Ceramic and porcelain are so dense that you won’t get that result.
You need something that’s got some adhesion promotion that will allow you to bond to the surface. Similarly, if you use penetrating or impregnating sealers, they need to soak into the surface. You can’t achieve that with a dense ceramic or porcelain tile. So it will not change the sheen, and it will also wear off very quickly.
Now if you use something like the GlazeGuard® Gloss, this is designed specifically to bond to that surface. It will provide a nice film across the tile and the grout. and a high sheen, wet look that will last for many years.
Why Is GlazeGuard® Gloss Better Than Other Sealer Products?
Our GlazeGuard® Gloss porcelain and ceramic tile sealer is a two-part polyurethane sealer designed specifically for bonding to ceramic and porcelain tile.
Three reasons that GlazeGuard® Gloss is better than standard floor sealers are:
1) It will bond to ceramic and porcelain tile. We have an adhesion promoters in it that allow it to bond to those impermeable surfaces.
2) It is a two-part product that cross-links and makes the seal over the surface very dense and very durable.
3) And it contains a high percentage of polymer, which results in a very hard wearing very long lasting barrier.
What Specific Components Of GlazeGuard® Gloss Provide Superior Results Consistently?
The components in GlazeGuard® Gloss are proprietary, but essentially we have adhesion promotion technology that allows for covalent bonding to a very dense ceramic or porcelain tile surface.
We use urethane technology, which is very durable, UV resistant, and it’s two parts create a very tough cross link that produces an industry leading seal over the tile and grout.
And the amount of polymer in the product, almost 50% solids, which is much higher than standard floor finishes.
When Deciding On Which Sealer Product Will Work For You, What Should You Be Aware Of?
When looking for a floor sealer for ceramic and porcelain tile, you want to make sure that:
1) The supplier or the manufacturer is clear that it will bond to ceramic and porcelain that is very dense. It is very impermeable.
You can’t just use a standard concrete surface sealer on ceramic and porcelain tiles. So check for that, first of all.
2) The product will form a film on the surface, and not just a penetrating or impregnated type sealer.
Those types of products can’t bond or soak into the tile surface. Typically, the sealer will rub off very quickly, forcing you to seal the porcelain or ceramic tiles again.
What Materials Are Lacking In Competing Products And Make Them Ineffective?
First of all, any sealer you choose for ceramic and porcelain tile must have adhesion promoters that will allow the product to bond to that surface.
The components found in standard surface treatments or surface sealers simply won’t work.
Secondly, make sure if you want to change the look of the tile or the sheen of the tile, the product is a film-forming product, not just the penetrating sealer
These do very little to the look of the tile, and will not last for long on a very dense, impermeable ceramic or porcelain surface.
What Kind Of Results Do Ineffective Floor Sealers Produce?
If you use a product that’s not specifically developed for ceramic and porcelain tile, what’s going to happen is:
- It may put a film over the surface, but because there’s no way for it to absorb into the surface. It’s going to lift and peel very quickly.
- It may last a few weeks, but after any standard use or cleaning of any kind, lifting and peeling will very quickly show up.
- If you use penetrating types of sealers, you won’t see any change in appearance, or very little at all because there’s nowhere for those components to penetrate the tile.
What Are The Best Practices When Using A Glossy Ceramic & Porcelain Tile Sealer Like GlazeGuard®?
In order to apply GlazeGuard® Gloss ceramic and porcelain tiles sealer, you need to approach it as if you were painting the floor.
- A good quality roller
- A roller tray
- A brush
- A little hotdog roller for sealing around the edges.
We recommend a roller that is a good quality microfiber. We also recommend that you only mix the amount of product that you can use in about 60 to 90 minutes.
Make sure the room is well lit and that you take your time and applying the product. It needs to be mixed before you use it.
Use a mixing stick and slowly mix the material, then pour it into a roller tray. Then roll it out just like you were painting a floor.

Both the gloss and the satin finish will give you a wetlook. The gloss is a high gloss finish and the satin is a semi-gloss finish. Both will bring out the colors of tile. Note: the grout color will darken too. To get an idea of how dark, just sprinkle some water on your grout joint. The GlazeGuard will produce a similar effect, but the grout will stay that dark when the sealer dries
GlazeGuard is a tough clear sealer and very hard wearing. It tends to keep its shine for a long time but it can still be scratched. Especially if you drag sharp objects, like heavy kitchen appliances or point loads like table legs or chair legs.
To spot repair or recoat entire area it is not necessary to strip the sealer, you just need to sand or scrub the surface clean so it can be top coated. Sand with 120 grit sand paper or scrub with black pad and GlossGlean neutral cleaner. Clean off the dust or residue and apply a top coat. For more detailed instructions see GlazeGuard Maintenance instructions
GlazeGuard when fully cured has a hard surface so dirt does not easily stick to it. You don’t need to use aggressive cleaners. An part of maintaining your floor is to use dust mop or “swiffer” type microfiber mop to keep sand and dirt off the floor. After that to wash the floor you can use neutral clean or mild liquid detergents, light vinegar solutions, or light ammonia solutions.
Stay away from solvents like Paint strippers, Acetone and Xylene. If you do have use concentrated cleaners/degreasers. Clean up residue right away. In general make sure all standard floor cleaners are diluted in accordance with manufactures instructions. For more information see GlazeGuard Maintenance instructions.
Yes GlazeGuard is a tough water based polyurethane sealer developed specifically to bond to ceramic and porcelain tile. Not many sealers can bond (long term) to ceramic or porcelain tile. However we use propriety adhesion promoters and the latest nano technology to enable GlazeGuard to do this.
We have many customers using GlazeGuard to provide a clear protective surface to porcelain tile and grout. It will give the floor a long last gloss, satin appearance and make the tile and grout much easier to clean . GlazeGuard should last at least 3 years in high traffic (commercial) application and up to 5 years in a residential application. When it comes time to top coat GlazeGuard you just lightly sand the surface and clean off the dust then reapply a top coat.
No. Typical grout sealers are water repellent and not compatible with GlazeGuard. They and will act as a bond breaker. GlazeGuard on its own, will provide a clear protective surface to both the tile and grout. It will give the floor a long lasting wet look appearance and make the tile and grout much easier to clean .
GlazeGuard is fully compatible with most grout colorant (acrylic and epoxy grout color). Follow grout colorant manufactures instruction regarding dry time. The grout colorant must be dry before sealing over with GlazeGuard

Yes. You are going to apply a sealer that will last many years. It is important to make sure that any dirt, foot prints, hair and dust off the floor before you seal with GlazeGuard.
We recommend our CT_50 tile and grout cleaner. This powerful surface cleaner will clean off oil, grease, wax, soap scum, mold, dirt and stains from glaze and unglazed tile, grout, natural stone and concrete surfaces.
For wet areas such as showroom floors, restrooms etc that regularly get wet, we recommend you clean the surface with PreTreat a mild acid based cleaner that will microscopically etch the tile surface and increase the adhesion.
GlazeGuard Satin finish will provide anti slip properties to the floor even when wet. The Gloss and Matte finish have better traction than say regular wax but the surface can still be slippery when wet. We recommend the addition of CoverGrip to increase the slip resistance of the floor.
