SurfaceGLAZE is a protective bonding process for tile surfaces. A specialized clear protective coating is installed to shield the entire surface. This process will restore the natural color and original luster of the tile in most cases. The grout joints will be cleaned and shielded by the same coating used on the entire surface area; they will remain their original color. SurfaceGLAZE enhances appearance and provides a layer of protection.


Process Steps

Step 1

Clean and prep entire surface using SaniGLAZE’s XcelKLEEN process to remove contaminants and to prepare tile and grout for application of SaniGLAZE® coatings.

Step 2

Install appropriate SaniGLAZE® protective shield for entire surface.
