Frequently Asked Questions
What about old VAT (vinyl asbestos tile)? Does this need to be sealed?
With this floor, it’s best to definitely seal. The reason is two-fold. First, since it is asbestos-containing tile, sealing with a semi-permanent seal like Acrylic Undercoater-Sealer (#272) keeps the asbestos where it belongs – in the tile and out of the air. Secondly, most VAT is porous. Porous floors should be filled with sealer before finishing.
