Polyblend Grout Renew is a very durable colorant that provides excellent stain resistance. The expected wear will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency, and type of maintenance products used. Weather conditions, harsh cleaning methods and high-alkaline, acidic or solvent-based cleaners will affect wear.

Just make sure it's cured and completely dry before laying anything over it. I also did not like the grout on a new tile floor and painted Polyblend Grout Renewal over it, it worked really well, and did not add any further expense. It was a small floor though!

Marble is porous and if the marble is not sealed you run the risk of the colorant staining it if it sits on the surface of the tile for too long. I would recommend making sure the marble is sealed, wiping any excess off the stone immediately and doing a small inconspicuous test spot to gauge the application and whether or not it wipes cleanly off with no staining. For further information please contact our technical service department at 800 272-8786 option 3.

I don't feel this product was meant to be used in a shower. That being said, if you have a tight budget and just need a quick fix, go for it. But no doubt you will have to do touch up from time to time.

I believe this product was really meant for floors, and under normal moping situations holds up very well. I'm extremely happy with this product on my floor grout and I have 7 animals and do a lot of cleaning. At some point in the future you probably plan to redo the tile in your shower. With this in mind, you don't have much to loose by trying this product. Even if you had to touch it up once a month, I don't think that would be so bad, do you?

We do not recommend using any cleaners that contain bleach acid or ammonia or aggressively scrubbing it on a routine basis. Any of the above can start to affect the colorant and it may ware off the surface of the grout joint. For further information please contact our technical service department at 800 272-8786 option 3.
