This question was asked by
Andy

I’ve sealed my customers sandstone with resiblock superior gloss and wondered if you could advise if easy strip 2000 will remove it? And won’t damage the paving? And what is the application process.

Yes the Easystrip 2000 will remove the sealer without damaging the stone, you can find the full application instructions on the product page under the Tech Data tab.

Thompson water seal removal

This question was asked by
Simon

We’re looking for a product that we can use to remove Thompson water seal from some concrete coping stones. Were also looking for a product that can stain or coat them to be a dark grey (close to ral 7016)

It might be worth contacting Thompsons direct to see what the recommend to remove it, the only solution we have that will remove it is the Easystrip 1000

As for the colour the Solid colour stain in Charcoal will be the best to use.

White Patches on the drive

This question was asked by
Gary

Hi, do you sell ‘sealer repair fluid’ or similar ? My imprinted driveway is coated with your heavy duty sealer and is showing some white patches.

We do, but we just don”t give it a fancy name like other companies, it is just the solvent.

Could you send some pictures over as it is not alway blooming that causes the white patches and there is no point spending money on something that might not work.

Concrete waterproofer

This question was asked by
Andrew Morris

We have cast a garage base 2 weeks ago alas labourer forgot admixture so looking for a penetrating concrete sealer as a waterproofer from rising damp, therefore can you recommend any of your sealers to fill the voids ?

Pretty much any of the sealers will help to stop damp, I have put links to 2 different products, the first is our most popular solvent based sealer for concrete surfaces, the second is a water based based option (no harmful chemicals or strong smell).

Either will be fine to use.

Drive sealant

This question was asked by
Steve Wilde

I’ve just had a new block paved drive laid and I’m wanting to seal it. It’s 130sq.m. and it will have 2 cars and a caravan on it on a regular basis. I’m wanting to proof it from oil leaks and stains but also enhance the colour to a sort of a ‘wet look’ without making it look too glossy. What do you recommend?

I would recommend using the Block paving SP sealer this will do what you are looking for, I would suggest getting 2 x 25 ltrs and 1 x 20 ltrs to complete the job.

Will this work on block paving.

Yes they will, they are ok to use on any concrete based product, just bear in mind that the coverage will be severely reduced, by at least half.

natural stone paving enhancer

This question was asked by
ANNETTE AMNER

Please may you advise if you have a suitable product for enhancing existing natural stone slabs without changing the overall colour. Over time, fading has occurred in some areas and we wish to bring the slabs back to their original natural buff colour without actually changing the overall colour. We are looking for a matt finish and, once this procedure has been carried out, we then wish to apply a natural stone sealant. Thank you for your advice and assistance.

Applying a coat of sealer will enhance the colour of the slabs and leave them looking as they do when they are wet.

If you apply 1 coat you will get a matte finish.

Wet look sealant for slate tiles

This question was asked by
Bill Small

I’m looking for a durable sealant that I don’t have to reapply every year. We have natural slate tiles (sheera modular) and we are after a wet look finish on them. What would you recommend and do I need to prep the tiles with anything first? The total floor size is 50m2 .if you could email me that would be great.

If you are looking for a long lasting gloss finish sealer I would recommend using our High Gloss PU seal (link below), I think this will be what you are looking for.
