Before Grouting: Apply Miracle Sealants 511 Impregnator Sealer to all surfaces prior to grouting. This step will allow quick and easy cleanup after grouting. Grout can stain many surfaces if this procedure is not used prior to the grouting process. Apply using a Mira Brush or a clean towel. Apply enough to wet the surface. (See coverage charts) Be careful not to saturate the open grout joints. Allow to stand for approximately 3 - 5 minutes for maximum penetration. All excess must be removed at this time by buffing surface with a clean dry towel. This is very important on polished, glazed and porcelain surfaces. Allow Miracle Sealants 511 Impregnator Seal to cure for 12 - 24 hours before continuing with the grouting procedure.
After Grouting: Once grouted, make sure that all grout residue is removed from the surface with a clean sponge and water. Allow grout to cure per manufacturers specification. If grout clean up is not performed effectively, an additional cleaning may be necessary to remove remaining grout residue or haze. For this procedure use Phosphoric Acid Cleaner , (GCFR) Grout & Concrete Film Remover (Hydrochloric Acid), Sulfamic Acid Crystals or Epoxy Grout Film Remover following the instructions carefully. Once the area has completely dried, proceed with the sealing of the grout for water and stain resistance. Apply Miracle Sealants 511 Impregnator Sealer to all grout with a paint brush.
Any excess sealer that gets on the surface should be wiped off with a clean towel before it dries. On larger jobs grout can be sealed by retreating the entire area including the tile or stone surface a second time. Be careful not to allow the sealer to puddle or dry on presealed surfaces.
