Product Reviews
By Trevor MallettFROM Nottingham

This is good stuff the only downside is once opened it has a certain use by date. I had the sample in my shed from last year and I thought this will do one paving slab but it came out the bottle like curdled milk.. so I decided to use all of the gallon I had bought recently. I have a large Indian sandstone patio so I did all of it but decided once the coat of sealer had dried to give another generous coat.. I wrongly supposed more would be best and used the whole gallon. When I had finished it looked really nice when product had dried next morning after it had rained overnight my wife shouted me to go down and look. The whole bit I had done previous day was all covered in white streaks it looked like the product had been splashed on everywhere and looked a right mess I straight away used my marcher pressure washer to wash it all off. It took some doing but got all the white staining off eventually.. end result once it had dried it still had the colour enhancer on and looks as it did the day before. It does not say on the container that putting too many coats on will result in this happening but the info is on smartseal web site regarding this. So two things to remember. If you buy it then use within a few weeks to avoid it going off and if you are happy with how the first coat looks then I wouldnt apply a second coat unless you apply it very sparingly so I would still give the product 5 stars as it does make the Indian sandstone look like new again but more is not always better.

This is an excellent product and very easy to use i just painted the sealer on my tarmac with a wide brush. We have moved in to an older bungalow with a tarmac drive and used this to smarten up the outside. It looks great and I may top it up but don't need to at this stage as one coat was enough

Delivered on time and product is as described. Painted the edges of the tarmac with a brush first then the rest with a roller. Went on easy and is water soluble so if you do get some over spill onto other surfaces you can get it off without staining if your quick! Drive now looks like new.

Product FAQs

Q: We have an area of 800 meter squared how much of your product would we need please.


A: You would need approximately 25 drums of tarmaseal to coat this area twice. Other factors such as surface condition can effect the coverage ratios. Please call our office on 01268 722500 and one of our staff will be able to give you all the advice you need.

Response from Nick

Q: Hi, My driveway is 3.1m2 and I’m looking to do 2 coats is one 5L enough?


A: Average coverage of the Tarmac Restorer dependent on age and condition is 2-3 m2 per litre. 1 x 5L will normally cover 10-15m2. It will always go further on the 2nd coat. An average size 2 car drive is approx 40m2. Our 'How To' Guides on YouTube should be helpful. Please call 01268 722500 for further advice. Hope that helps.

Response from Alex

Q: I have a large area to cover, do I need to keep a wet edge or can I apply over several applications without lines?

Steven Tucker

A: there is never a guarantee that you will not see some roller lines as each applicator is different. However most people using Tarmaseal are able to apply it with a roller without any visble roller lines that cause an issue. If it is a very large area, an airless sprayer can be used for a very uniform finish
