An Indian sandstone area that has been laid for several years and become drab and more like cement slabs. After jet washing, the colours returned, most attractive as it was when new, but when dry, it was not as effective. I used Ultimate Enhancer sandstone sealer and the results are truly amazing. It now has the colours that showed when wet. Very pleased. I found the technical team extremely quick in response to my questions.
Was sceptical to whether this sealer would actually provide the finish desired; however 3 coats on prepared sandstone give a lovely wet sheen which is easily cleaned. Longevity, time will tell. The result is however a little slippery when wet which can be an issue subject to type of footwear.
The wet look sealer is an excellent product, very easy to apply and the end result is exceptional. The colours in our sandstone paving are really enhanced and able to be seen in both wet and dry weather.

Q: Hi, I have purchased the natural stone sealer previously and was very happy with the results. We are wanting to purchase and re seal again soon. However we are also planning on repointing our Indian stone with an all seal compound. Can you explain the best route for best end result of this process. Would it be better re joint firstly then would we need to leave the stone sealer for a later date or can it be done right away? Appreciate if you can help with my query. Regards Kris
A: It would depend on if you're repointing with a sweeping compound. If you are, you would best to repoint then use our Residue Remover and allowing a few days to dry (weather dependant) before sealing. If you don't want to use remover, you would have to wait 6 months before applying the Natural Stone Sealer Wet Look. Sweeping compounds leave a lot of residues, which can prevent the sealer from soaking in. If it's a sand and cement mixture you're using for the pointing, you can seal after 3 days, again weather dependant.
Q: Have a stone floor with underfloor heating - is the wet look sealer OK for use on this?
A: Yes, you can use our Natural Stone Sealer Wet Look on Stone with underfloor heating. You would just want the under floor heat off during application and 24 hours after to give the sealer the best chance to cure.
Q: I have had new yorkshire stone steps replaced and was looking at your Natural Stone Sealer - WET LOOK to compleate the project. And have a little concern does the serface remain breathable? and will any water on the serface bead my concern is if there are beads of water and they then freeze they would be as ball bearings not ideal on steps. I await your reply Mike Gilley
A: So we can best advise you, it would be best to get in touch with the technical team on our website regarding the Natural Stone Wet Look.
Average 5-12 m² per litre depending on the texture and porosity of the surface being sealed.
1. Apply in temperatures above 15°C, but below 23 degrees ensuring the surface is completely dry, clean and free from debris. Apply only if no rain is forecast for at least 8 hours. For best cleaning results use Patio Clean Xtreme.
**If applied to a surface where a "sweep-in" pointing compound has been used with the last 6 months, the natural stone must be fully cleaned with Smartseal Residue Remover prior to sealant application.**
2. Apply the sealer thinly and evenly with a low pressure sprayer, roller, microfibre mop, paint brush or soft cloth. Try not to leave application marks or allow the product to 'pool' or 'puddle' on the surface immediately after application. In the event of over application please ensure all excess is removed within 45 minutes of applying.
3. Once applied, allow minimum 60 minutes drying time before applying the second coat. If possible, apply the product in the opposite direction to try to achieve an even finish. Multiple coats can be applied to achieve the desired finish.
Important Note: Any areas nearby that are not being sealed should be protected with masking materials. If you are sealing over coloured grouts, carry out that a stain test before proceeding.
