  4. Surface must be clean, dry and free from sealers and coatings;
  5. Do NOT allow sealer to drip or leave drip marks on the surface;
  6. Do NOT use on the underside of the tile or stone. If six sided/dip sealing is required, then use Ultra-Block;

PREPARATION OF SURFACE:

Use XtremeClean+ as per label instructions to clean and prepare the surface to be sealed.

INSTRUCTIONS – PRE-SEALING:
