Flooring and Carpeting/finish on tiles


Have unglazed saltillo tiles, would like high gloss finish. Need to know process and products compatable with these tiles

All of our products were developed with an emphasis on Saltillo tiles. You can look at them at: www.sparkssw.com

A penetrating sealer is used first, until all the porosity at the surface is blocked. A topical sealer is then applied over the tiles.  The finish is used so as to maintain a gloss, as well as additional scratch, mar, and scuff resistance.
