Review of Miracle's 511 Impregnator Sealer
(Solvent or Water)
|Type of Sealer||Petroleum Based|
|Price per Quart||$34.70|
511 Impregnator Sealer has been a favorite sealer for many tile installers. It is a high VOC solvent based sealer that can be used on all types of tile, grout and stone surfaces. It has a unique formula that is unlike any other sealers available on the market today. We see how well in performs as a grout and stone sealer.
As a relatively high VOC sealer it is expected that the sealer will soak deep into grout and stone and provide superior protection. In our previous testing of this sealer it did not perform up to expectations and during this round of grout sealer testing little has changed. It performed about average as a grout sealer with many of the contaminates staining the sealed grout samples. The contaminates did not bead up on the sealed grout offering no time to wipe up and remove these stains before they eventually stained the grout. Also having to endure high VOC levels for this level of sealing did not seem worth it to use this sealer for sealing grout.
As a supposedly high grade stone sealer the 511 impregnator was really disappointing. The contaminates severely stained the sealed stone sample much more than virtually any other sealer in our stone sealer review. The unique formula of the 511 impregnator seems to absorb the contaminates and become extremely stained. The oil, wine and even hot pepper contaminates left glaring stains on our sample that were impossible to remove. We find this sealer extremely lacking for sealing any type of stone tiles or slabs.
