questions claire on 23/07/2018

I have some clay tiles (like quarry tiles but says made of clay) I have old quarry tiles cleaned and sealed but the new ones in clay don't hold the sealer. It easily comes off with bare feet or if it gets wet with washing up water etc in kitchen. Should I apply a clear primer over the top of the sealant that has just been put on for the 3rd time or which primer would you suggest? Is there a clear primer/ sealant which would stick to the tiles please and provide protection. Gloss preferably as the old quarry tiles have been gloss sealed. thanks


Our best recommendation for this would be to remove all existing coatings and try a test area with Rust-Oleum 4900 Polycoat 2K to ensure it is suitable before coating the whole area.
