GlazeGuard® Satin Finish Glazed Porcelain Tile Sealer For Ceramic and Other Surfaces
Ultra Durable Clear Sealer for Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone Tile.
What Is GlazeGuard® Satin Ceramic And Porcelain Tile Sealer?
GlazeGuard® Satin Finish Glazed Porcelain Tile Sealer For Ceramic And Porcelain provides a sheen that’s in between the Matte and the Glossy products. GlazeGuard® Matte is a very flat finish sealer. GlazeGuard® Gloss offers a high gloss sheen. The Satin finish is in between the previous two sealer types.
How Is GlazeGuard® Satin Finish Different From A Wet-Look Sealer?
GlazeGuard® Satin will give the floor tile and grout a wet look, similar to the gloss. However, the sheen or shine level, is not as glossy. You’ll still get a wet look, but you won’t have such a strong shine.
Can GlazeGuard® Satin Be Used On Polished Porcelain Tiles?
Many people ask – can we use GlazeGuard® Satin on polished porcelain tiles? We don’t really recommend sealing polished porcelain tiles with any sealer, including GlazeGuard® Satin. It’s a very hard surface to apply a sealer and make it look attractive.
Which Areas Are Ideal For A Tile Sealer Like GlazeGuard® Satin Finish?
You can use GlazeGuard® Satin on any kind of ceramic or porcelain tile. It works very well in wet areas like in a kitchen, shower or a bathroom.
These are places you want to keep the tile and the grout:
– Very clean
– Make it easier to maintain, and
– Cut down on the odors that may come from the ground.
Ceramic and porcelain tile surfaces in commercial or residential applications are ideal areas to use GlazeGuard® Satin finish. It’s designed to stick to these very hard, dense surfaces.
We can use this tile sealer in a commercial or residential application where the goal is to change the sheen. It can be used to make it more shiny or glossy, or to reduce the current sheen.
It can also be used on natural stone or concrete. Surfaces like these are more porous and susceptible to staining or discoloration. GlazeGuard® Satin can put a clear, protective barrier across stone and concrete flooring both indoors and outdoors.
How Does Glazeguard® Satin Perform In High Traffic Areas?
GlazeGuard® Satin finish performs very well a lobby ways, walkways, stairways which are typically high traffic areas. This sealer leaves a tough, durable barrier across the tile and the grout to make it easier to:
– Maintain, and
– Eliminate wear-patterns typical to high traffic areas.
What Other Surfaces Can Glazeguard® Satin Finish Be Used On?
GlazeGuard® Satin finish can be used on floors and walls. You can apply the product to ceramic and porcelain surfaces both horizontal and vertical. It will work on back-splashes, shower walls, or the walls in busy environments such as schools and hospitals.
Just bear in mind that in such well-used areas, we recommend you apply two coats on a vertical application. But even with a single coat, it will still leave a very durable protective barrier in those situations.
Is Glazeguard® Satin Best Suited For Interior Or Exterior Use?
GlazeGuard® Satin finish can be used for interior or exterior purposes. It’s got very good UV resistance. It’s non-yellowing, and will last for years, whether it’s applied to a surface on the exterior or interior of a home or building structure.
Why Does GlazeGuard® Satin Perform Well In Such Diverse Situations?
The reasons why GlazeGuard® works so well in these areas are:
1) The adhesion properties.
These adhesion promoters allow for strong bonding to very dense, impermeable surfaces like ceramic and porcelain.
2) Approximately 50% polymer content.
The fact that this product has such a high polymer content makes it a very durable, chemical resistant product.
3) As a two-part sealer, it forms incredibly strong cross links, resulting in a very tough, UV resistant barrier.
It won’t break down due to contact with cleaning chemicals or staining. It’s designed to work very well for both interior and exterior applications from the start.
Can GlazeGuard® Satin Be Used On Un-Glazed Surfaces?
You can use GlazeGuard® Satin on un-glazed surfaces. In fact, we highly recommend it, because these surfaces are susceptible to staining and discoloration.
They’re much more porous than a glazed tile, so putting a clear barrier across the tile and the grout will:
1) Protect that surface
2) Make it easier to clean, and
3) Enhance the look by bringing out the colors.
How Do You Remove A Previously Used Sealer From Your Grout?
Using GlazeGuard® Satin finish on grout is highly recommended. It’ll put a very dense, impermeable barrier across the grout that will stop stains and odors coming out of the ground.
For example, in a restroom situation, you need to make sure the floor has not been previously sealed. More specifically if the surface was sealed with impregnator products, they are water repellent.
If that’s the case, then the sealer must be removed before you seal it with a water based GlazeGuard® product. Otherwise, the previous slear will repel the GlazeGuard® finish.
If your grout has being previously sealed, and you want to seal over it with GlazeGuard® Satin, you need to just check with the sealant manufacturer regarding how to remove that product.
Typically it needs to be:
– Stripped using floor finish stripper
– Etched with a micro-etching cleaner, or
– Sanded down before adding a top-coat.
How Should You Clean And Prepare Tiles Before Applying GlazeGuard® Satin?
We always tell people to be fussy about cleaning porcelain tile before sealing it with GlazeGuard® Satin finish.
Remember, you’re going to seal it with something that’s going to last several years. Make sure there’s no dust or dirt on the floor. Any footprints or stains will be locked down by the GlazeGuard® sealer.
So be fussy about cleaning it. You should use a High PH tile and grout cleaner that will remove dirt grease stains.
If applying it to areas like a shower or restroom that’s constantly exposed to water or cleaning chemicals, we recommend you micro-etch the surface with something like our PreTreat Mild Acidic Ceramic Tile Cleaner. It will prepare the surface, and give you better adhesion for the GlazeGuard® sealer.
After Applying GlazeGuard® Satin, What Ongoing Care Is Recommended?
One of the key advantages of using GlazeGuard® Satin finish is that it makes cleaning and maintaining the floor much easier.
You don’t need to use harsh or aggressive chemicals. You just need to use mild detergents or mild soap to clean the surface. The dirt won’t stick to the surface like it does with untreated tiles.
You don’t have to use a concentrated level of cleaning supplies, which will typically reduce your costs noticeably.
It’s also important to keep dust and dirt and sand off the floor. It’s a good practice to use mats at entrance ways to trap dirt, dust and grease before they get onto the floor.
How Does GlazeGuard® Satin Stand Up To UNUSUAL Chemical Spills Or Messes?
GlazeGuard® Satin is actually very chemically resistant, so unusual spills or messes are typically no problem. In most cases it’s going to resist the spilled substance and give you plenty of time to clean it up without damaging the surface.
If it’s very aggressive or very acidic, you might see a change in the gloss. In that case you can repair that area locally by sanding it, and re-applying a top-coat.
If there’s a lot of water, such as in a flooding situation, GlazeGuard® has excellent short-term and long-term water immersion resistance as well. Just allow the floor to dry out, and you’ll be fine.
If, for any reason, you notice watermarks after prolonged water immersion, don’t panic. Simply let the tile dry, then sand the surface and re-apply the GlazeGuard® product.
What Are Customers Saying About GlazeGuard® Satin?
Our clients love the entire GlazeGuard® product line for a few key reasons:
– They are very water resistant, and prevent stains and discoloration from excessive exposure to moisture or continuous immersion.
– They are very chemical resistant, and prevent harmful and staining substances from getting through to the floor below.
– They improve the appearance of ceramic and porcelain floors and walls, for much longer than store-bought sealers.
– They don’t strip off easily and require gentle cleaning with everyday soaps or detergents.
– Cleaning and maintenance costs and labor go down because once sealed, dirt, stains and discolorations are a thing of the past.
And if something goes wrong, they simply have to strip that local area and re-apply the GlazeGuard® product.
– They protect both the tile floor and the grout, to keep surfaces clean and odor-free.
Every product in the GlazeGuard® line makes ceramic and porcelain floors look pristine and easy to maintain.
And applying them are easy enough for the average do-it-yourself consumer.

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

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.
