Frequently Asked Questions
Add colour to your block paving to make it look like new.
Smartseal "Block Magic" is a blend of liquid pigments and acrylic resins that soaks deeply into paving, totally transforming and protecting block paving driveways and patios. 'Block Magic' replaces the colour that sun, rain, vehicles and pressure washing has taken away. Apply one coat of 'Block Magic' by brush or roller, leave to dry, re-sand the joints and then apply a coat of our clear sealer. PLEASE NOTE: old or poorly conditioned pavers may require two coats of Block Magic to achieve a uniform finish.

Liquid UV stable pigments blended with acrylic resins and solvents create "block magic". Developed by Smartseal with older block paving in mind, it will not only recolour block paving but protect the paving from future colour loss, weeds algae and staining.
'Block Magic' Coloured Paving Sealer is applied by roller, at a rate of approx 3.0m² per litre (around 2.5m² per litre on old pavers). Make sure the colour has dried evenly across the block paving before applying a clear second coat of sealer.Prior to applying sealer, sweep kiln dried sand into the joints and ideally compact with 'wacker plate'.The sealer will be tack free within 2 hours at 20°C and foot traffic may be permitted after 4 hours. Vehicles should be kept off the sealed area for a minimum of 24 hours at 20°C. These times may be increased or reduced depending on the ambient temperature.
Ensure no rain is forecast for at least 6 hours after application. Do not apply when the ground temperature is above 25°C or below 12°C.
All equipment should be cleaned with Smartseal cleaning fluid after use.
Deicing salts should not be applied directly on sealed block paving or concrete sealers.
Salt chemically reduces the temperature at which water freezes and will result in water ingress into the pavers.
Subsequent freezing may result in the paving 'sealer' being broken by the expansion of water as it freezes and white 'pitted' areas may become visible.

*** If your Block Paving has been previously sealed - to ensure compatibility, please contact us here before ordering: https://www.smartseal.co.uk/help-advice/contact-us.htm
Existing paving should be pressure washed to remove all surface debris and muck from the joints.
If the area is contaminated with weeds & moss then it should be treated with Smartseal moss clear or weed killer.
Oil and other stains should be removed using Smartseal Driveway Cleaner or Oil Remover.
The treated area should then be left to dry and the joints re-sanded & compacted to the lower edge of the paver chamfers with clean kiln-dried sand.
Moisture in the paver & sand will inhibit penetration of the sealer and produce whiteness.
