Can I use this treatment on other materials? Yes is the short answer however it is better to use a correct sealer on porous materials which will serve the same purpose but wont be removed after grouting so your material is sealed and protected from other types of stains also. Why do I need to use this treatment on porcelain paving? This has been formulated specifically to stick to porcelain and is very handy especially when weather is warm as porcelain retains heat more than stone or concrete so the tiles get very hot and when you apply the jointing compound / grout it dries extremely quickly on the surface making it very difficult and time consuming to remove. Can the general public use this product? Normally it is used by your paving contractor / builder that are laying your porcelain paving. Do I need to seal my porcelain paving?
