When laid in-doors, there should be a sealer to protect the tiles from water and stains.

When laid out-doors, tiles have to be protected by penetrating sealer that contains UV protection. This is to help preserve the colours of tiles from fading when exposed to sunlight.

We recommend you use penetrating sealers. There are various suppliers of sealers in your market. Your DIY store  can select the best sealer for your project. It is necessary that you make a test on a small area before coating the whole floor.
