Mexican Tile Renew Project at outdoor patio in Sarasota were old solvent based sealer had failed and turned a smokey gray color. The hot Florida sun had baked the old solvent oil based sealer right into the face of the tile. It took two days to remove the ugly sun baked solvent based sealer from the tile. In most materials like Mexican tile, solvent-based sealers and high solid count water-based sealers of a similar quality will offer comparable protection, except that solvent-based oil sealers tend to fade and yellow in the hot Florida sun, see photos above. Solvent-based oil penetrating sealers contain higher amounts of harmful VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). VOCs emit gases that are harmful to people, pets and the environment. A product called Mex Seal is banned in California for use and unable to be shipped to California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, D.C. Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia.
