Good first repair coat easy to use.
I havent used it yet not been fine weather
It does what it says on the tin! Probablly. I over calculated / overbought the required quantity, due to using the 'coverage' quotation, and it's a bit pricier than other brands of Xylene, but assured quality? I'm not a scientist. Can't comment on its prime purpose of releasing 'trapped' moisture in the imprinted concrete, as the white discolouration on mine must be 'salts' etc., that have leached out of the concrete after showing up about 3 yrs from laying, and is now 10 yrs old, and has had four goings over in that time. Used two coats, with a final sealant coat, which has improved the appearance - for now?
Sealer Repair Fluid (Sample, 5L & 25L)
Removes Surface Whiteness Helps to release moisture trapped under sealer that is causing surface whiteness. Will also fix sealer that has lifted or peeled off; needs working in to the white patches vigourously to break down and emulsify the existing seal.
Sealer Repair Fluid for removing whiteness on Imprinted Concrete and Block Paved Surfaces
If the solvent based imprinted concrete or block paving sealers have been applied in conditions when the surface is damp this can lead to problems. Surface whiteness is the most common issue and appears over time if the sealer has been applied when the surface is damp.
Smartseal sealer repair fluid should be used when problems like patchy whiteness have appeared on the surface of existing imprinted concrete or block paved driveways and patios. Surface whiteness, peeling or flaking sealer are common issues that are easily corrected using sealer repair fluid.
Smartseal Sealer Repair Fluid will restore existing imprinted concrete sealer or block paving sealer and clear surface whiteness from imprinted concrete and block paved surfaces.
- Coverage ratio: 3 - 4 m² per litre
Q: I used 'Thompson's One Coat Patio & Block paving seal' last summer on my new Raj sandstone patio., which is now covered in white patches (patio appeared dry, but apparently not). Will this seal repair fluid work on that?
A: Yes, the sealer repair fluid should resolve this issue, we would suggest purchasing a sample and trying on a test area 1st.
Q: Can I mix the colour with the Sealer Repair Fluid
A: Dependant on the scenario, yes you can use the Sealer Repair Fluid with colour tint. It's normally advised if previous coats of sealer have been recently applied, but the colour looks patchy.
Q: Hi, I have light grey block paving that has some white patches on it from removing the old sealant. Will this product be ok to use?
A: If the whiteness is caused by damp, then yes you would be able to treat with the Sealer Repair Fluid. We have samples available if you want to do a test for peace of mind.
Sealer repair fluid is a product designed to repair incorrectly applied sealer which is lifting or sealer which has reacted with moisture during the drying process. For imprinted concrete it should be liberally applied to the affected area, left for a couple of minutes and then worked into the surface vigorously with a soft broom until the sealer goes "tacky" under your broom. This will show you have 'softened' the sealer and you then allow it to re-bond to the concrete by leaving it.
For removal of surface whiteness on block paving repeat as instructions above, but with block paving be careful not to disturb the jointing sand when working the sealer repair fluid into the surface of the blocks.
