Rated 5 out of 5¬†by Mattblaque Works great on slate floors
I like a rich sheen on my slate kitchen floors. I used to use HG Impregnator which they've stopped manufacturing. I was led to believe oil based stone sealants were being legislated out by EU owing to environmental concerns.
I've tried using the water based sealants and enhancers. The water based sealants work but not for long and they don't enhance slate tiles at all. It almost feels like your applying water.
This stuff from Topps is Excellent. It comes in a big container so I suppose it's worth the money. The results last a very long time and dying time is very quick. I used a smooth roller for perfect results.
When you first apply this product it makes the floor look wet and very shiny. However, after a day or two, the intensity dies down to a rich lustrous sheen which makes slate tiles look amazing.

Rated 2 out of 5¬†by MikeB Train your people on the special nature of installing travertine tumbled wall tiles
After visiting your Barnstaple shop we ordered travertine tumbled tiles. In the shop Julie advised us to buy colour enhancer. After buying the enhancer, and taking it home, we noted that we also needed a cleaner, so had to trail back to the shop.
In it's untreated form the tile is a subtle chalky colour which we wanted to keep. After applying your cleaner and colour enhancer 12 hours later, the colour changed to a low gloss medium shade of brown, with almost a tinge of orange. The whole effect was compromised. As the colour had changed we then needed get another shade of grout - back to the shop to buy it. Also, nobody in the shop could advise on the issue of filling or not filling the natural holes and defects. These tiles are very much a 'special product' which requires more specialist product training for your staff. Also, the tumbled travertine tile on your shop display board was not treated with enhancer. Why don't you show before and after enhancer application? Had we known how much the colour changed with enhancer, we'd have simply applied your sealer and grouted with a light coloured grout. The final result of the tiling desired was not achieved simply because your staff lack the training to advise us properly. Added to this is the hassle of going backwards and forwards to your shop 20 miles from our home.
