Dupont's Grout Sealer is the low priced discount grout sealer product available from Lowe's. We tested this sealer out to see if you can save some money with this sealer and still get good grout sealing results. Dupont's grout sealer has recently had the formula changed to use a newer Teflon based technology for sealing grout. This sealer advertises that it can protect grout up to 3 years when used in an indoor application. This sealer is a grout specific sealer and has a larger molecular structure for sealing the extremely porous grout. It is not made for sealing dense stone tiles so it should only be used for sealing grout in ceramic and porcelain tile installations.
This sealer performed the best of any low cost budget based sealer on the market today. Although the stain resistance was not on par with any of the professional grout sealers on the market it performed much better than any of the low cost sealers sold at Home Depot. The stains and spills beaded up well on the top of the sealer allowing you to easily remove the stains before they entered into the grout. The stain resistance of the sealer was acceptable for a low cost sealer. The newer Teflon based technology has not been adequately tested in real world applications so we are not certain how well this sealer technology will hold up over time. In our grout sealer test it did do an adequate job as a low cost budget based sealer.
