Presealed Saltillo Tile | Saltillo Tiles

Pre-sealing Saltillo can be done at the manufacturing plant, the distribution center, or even at the job site. Pre-sealing is either done by applying an oil/solvent sealer to the tile or a water base sealer to the tile prior to installation. Generally three to four applications are applied. Pre-sealed Saltillo is not a finished product. Pre-sealing tile after installation and prior to grouting is not recommended. Only the application of a grout release is recommended at the point between installation and grouting. (Refer to Unfinished Link)

Pre-sealing tile is generally requested when there is not sufficient cure time for an unsealed Saltillo installation to be sealed and finished after grouting. Additionally, presealed Saltillo helps the lesser experienced installer have better finished results.

Pre-sealing Saltillo is actually half of the entire sealing and finishing process. Our greatest success in completed Saltillo floors for interior purposes is to use a sealer as the prime or base coats and a finish as the top or wear coats. For applications where a sealer can be used as a finish product, additional coats are required after the grout has cured. This ensures that the grout gets sealed and any abrasions from the grouting process or job site conditions are corrected. Pre-sealing can be either dull or semi-gloss. When pre-sealing a floor, whether an oil base or water base, you are committed to the color range of the pre-sealing process. Unlike an “unsealed” Saltillo tile that gives you coloring options after installation, pre-sealed tile “is what it is”.

Any undesirable or odd ball tile that is pre-sealed should be held aside to be used for a cut tile or installed in an inconspicuous area. Altering a pre-sealed tile after installation can only be done by the best of professionals. For exterior applications, a non glossy dull sealer is always recommended. Glossy exterior sealers require maintenance that can become costly, and are slippery.

Pre-sealing tile also allows an installer that is not very familiar with Saltillo installations to have more successful results. Pre-sealing gives the installer more of the environment like grouting a glazed tile. Those with little experience with Saltillo tend to struggle when installing unsealed Saltillo. Our company preference is to always do sample or test areas and to sell the finish product to be applied three to seven days after grouting. Dry times vary by regions.
