Was happy to try this product based on the reviews and was not let down. I used it to seal my cermic tile and grout kitchen counter. The product is very easy to apply and goes a long way. Water and stains bead or roll off and I fell like my hard work is protected.

Water puddles and is not absorbed into the grout. This product works great!
This product was recommended by the company that installed my granite. They told me to put it on the granite and let it sit for 5 hours or more and them buff it to a shine like you would whne waxing your car. (This is not the directions on the bottle.) I have a lot of granite so I did mine in sections which turned out to be a good plan. It was a lot of work to get the residue off.
Our new light-colored granite countertops were left unsealed by our builder. Even a single drop of water was instantly absorbed by the surface, leaving a temporary dark spot. I wanted to make sure that any other spills wouldn't do the same, so I bought this sealer. It was so easy to use - just brushed it on with a foam brush, waited 5 minutes, and wiped off with a paper towel. Now water beads up on the surface and I'm so pleased with the results. I also used it on the tile and grout of the backsplash and the kitchen and bathroom floors. Great stuff, easy to use, I would definitely buy again.
Several areas of my granite counters were not sealed well. The impregnator was easy to apply and now the water beads up instead of sinking in. The 16 oc. size covered all my counters (large kitchen) with plenty left over. I also used it on the bathroom sink and it worked great. I'd definitely would buy again.
I used this product to seal the tile floors in our house after we moved in about two years ago... After the application of the sealer we noticed that it had turned our nice white grout a grey color. After about 6 months it no longer resist water and would allow the grout to soak up water. I followed the directions to where the sealer would allow the water to bead. It did, just for a little while... Would use another product if you are sealing grout.
I have a relatively porous granite top that kept soaking up water even though I'd sealed it numerous times with some of the other water-based fluoropolymer products. This product is an impregnator vs. a sealant and it did the trick for this particular top. I used the remainder to seal some new grout in a shower and floor. More costly up front but not by that much and it's better to spend a bit more up front and not have to deal with grout cleaning products in a year or so!
Pros: High Quality

Review 9 for 16 oz. 511 Impregnator
from Austin TX
Not sure it does the job it says

Ease of installation
No, I do not recommend this product.
Have sealed the (sanded) grout in my kitchen area. Weeks after I spilled soup on the floor, and I have serious doubts this is really protecting the liquids to penetrate the treated grout.
It works to some extent, but I paid the full asked price, not "to some extent"
Saw a reference to this product by a professional tiler. Read many reviews on the product which were mostly for stone applications. I wanted this for my new glazed ceramic tile. I used a clean wash cloth as an applicator. Realized i forgot to wipe off excess as the surface was tacky the next morning. Took the cloth i used to apply sense it was saturated with the 511 and just wiped over the walls and then went after with a dry cloth and it fixed the problem. All of the application instructions are on the bottle and if you follow them it is easy. One tip from my experience is a little goes a long way especially on ceramic tile. Found I could have conserved the amount i used. Have enough left for at least two more applications. Water just beads up on the walls and we are pleased in this early use of the product
I used this sealer on the grout of my newly tiled kitchen floor. It went on super easy with the roller bottle applicator that I also bought. It took less than an hour and this size bottle covered my 1/4 inch grout lines on a 200+ sq ft floor tiled in 12x12 and 2x2 size tiles. The roller applicator let me get the sealer only on the grout and not all over the tiles. Any drips wiped right off the porcelain tiles. I gave it the water test after letting it cure for 48 hours and the water beads right up. I'm very pleased with the ease and results. I've never met anyone who has actually resealed their grout every year, but with a job this easy, I would not dread doing it.
It does seem to waterproof tile surfaces. I applied a small/moderate amount with a clean, white cloth (old washcloth) and then let sit on the tile for about 5 minutes. Using another washcloth (a dry, white one), I then removed it. It was pretty easy to do the whole thing and didn't take too much time.
Pros: Easy to Use, these products have a good reputation
Cons: smelled a bit strong--need fan on when you apply
Used for new travertine tile in master bath. Applied with brush and removed excess with turkish towel. Went ahead and applied second coat a few days later. Water now beads rather than soak in. Very pleased with result. Does not change appearance of the travertine.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, High Quality, Good Size & Weight
I used this to seal the granite in both my bathrooms. The sealer is very easy to use and very low odor. I just followed the instructions and it dried perfectly clear with no hazy parts. ( I even forgot to wipe the back splash until way more than 3 minutes and it still looks perfect). It's been about a month and it's holding up great so far. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't available in the store but it came within 5 days of ordering.
It really did the job and was very easy to apply--however there are a few suggestions--start small and do one section and wipe it off--then the next-do not try and do the whole piece at once. Since you really do not use a lot of product-a pint purchase is probably the best since the recommendation was one sealing every six months and then cleaning only with soap and warm water.
I used 511 Impregnator Sealer on my shower and it failed to seal the grout. After 5 coats of sealer it still failed the water test and was still absorbing water. I bought TileLab penetrating sealer and solved the problem. I spoke with Israel in Tech Support numerous times and they failed to solve the issue with their recommendations and failed to refund the product after a number of days dealing with them. I do not recommend this product at all. Their warrenty or satisfaction guarantee is garbage. I also, do not recommend 511 spray on grout sealer that failed as well. I will not purchase their products again. Also, beware I read in a blog that some people return some of these products filling them with water! HD quality should send these back to the manufacturer not put them back on the shelf when returned. Thank you for the time you spent reading this review. Have a nice day.
Cons: Not Durable, faulty warranty, product does not do as described, bad tech support
