Stonetech Impregnator Pro is a professional level solvent based tile, grout and stone sealer. It has got a long standing reputation as an excellent grout and stone sealer. It uses the older tried and true fluoropolymer based sealant technology. We see how well it performs as a grout and stone sealer.
Stonetech Impregnator pro is a relatively high VOC level solvent based sealer using older fluoropolymer sealant technology. The advantage of this older solvent based sealant technology is it will absorb deep into the grout and stone when sealing them. Also this solvent based sealer is extremely easy to use and it is virtually impossible to leave streaks or a sealer haze when used correctly. Many of the water based sealers dry too quickly and have the potential to haze up or leave streaks on tiles if the excess sealer is not quickly wiped away. Impregnator pro dries less quickly and the solvent based technology allows you to quickly and easily wipe up any excess sealer on the tiles without any streaking or hazing issues.
We found the impregnator pro worked well as a grout sealer in our grout sealer tests. The stains and spills all beaded up well on the grout sample. The staining of the grout samples was not the best of all the sealers tested but still provided above average protection for the grout. Using this type of sealer on ceramic and porcelain tiles is extremely easy as the excess sealer can be easily wiped off the tiles without any streaking or hazing worries as with water based sealers. The high VOC level may give sensitive people some issues but the vapors and fumes all disappear within\ an hour or two.
As a stone sealer the impregnator pro performed about average as a stone sealer. The older fluoropolymer technology did not provide as much protection as some of the newer water based sealers on the market today. Still you can always count on the impregnator pro to give you a streak free sealer that is easy to use and absorbs deep into the natural stone. The Stonetech Bulletproof with the newer microbond technology perfomed better in our stone sealer reviews than the Stonetech Impregnator Pro.
