Does Any Sealer Take Care Of Sealing All Materials?
The surface types shown ( Quarry tile, Mexican tile, Stone, etc.) can vary greatly in absorption characteristics. A given sealer applied to a low absorption surface can leave most of its solids on top, while on a high absorption surface the same sealer will all penetrate below the surface. Therefore, the same sealer can be glossy on one material and have no gloss on another.
With a "penetrating" type sealer, it is better to penetrate and build with additional applications than to have it all sit on the top. As all sealers are formulated to the proper resilience so they don't crack under traffic impact, too much buildup of a penetrating sealer can create a surface soft enough to show marks.
Most Aldon sealers have more than one area they can be used in any project. Check sealer information on the web site.
