tire protectant as grout sealer

yes, tire.

Just pondering. My driveway has stains that have been water impermeable for years because tire protectant dripped from those spots.

So it got me thinking, if you let tire protectant soak into grout, it would probably do a great job sealing the grout.

Hi Paul

Since I wouldn't try putting stone enhancer on my tires, I think I'll pass trying to put tire shine on my grout.

I would be interested in taking a look at the MSDS for your specific tire shine product. Feel free to post a link.

Let me know if you have any more pondering ideas!

I actually don't know which tire protectant it is.

America's Tire store put it on whenever they rotate my tires.

But the common ingredient in most tire shines is some variation of silicone. Probably the same stuff in grout sealer, but many people already have it in their garage.

Hi Paul

That's where you have to be careful. There are silicone caulks with different formulations for different applications. The same holds true for silicones, siloxannes, silanes, etc. in impregnating sealers.

The chemistry gets so complex, I don't recommend using a product for which it's not intended.

John is right, there are many different kinds of sealers based on silicone chemistry. My concern would be that tire dressing would most likely attract and hold dirt more so than a grout sealer that is formulated to do just the opposite.

Hmmm, interesting thought about the tire protectant. I think I'll keep using my impregnating sealer from Cobb's, but very interesting none the less. Give it a try and let us know how it works out
