A water-based temporary protection for tiles, BAL Protective Sealer protects surfaces against discolouration when using pigmented grouts. For use with all BAL grouting products, it can be removed by washing-off after grouting.
BAL Protective Sealer is an essential component of any tiling project to ensure that tiles remain protected throughout the grouting process. The use of BAL Protective Sealer removes any potential for regrouting or re-tiling which could add significant costs and time to tiling projects.
