The block paving sealer is a fantastic product
Great product, the block paving sealer is easy to put down with roller, as others have mentioned, it has a very strong smell but went away after a few days. Looks great. The more coats the better coverage and greater protection. Sets the block paving off.
As mentioned many times this has quite strong fumes (postman said he could smell it at the end of the street!) so appropriate mask definitely required. Took 48 hours for odour to clear completely. Applied with roller and found a deep pile masonry roller was best to put down enough sealer to cover properly as per the manufacturer's videos. Matt used as I have a motorbike and do not want it to skid on gloss block paving. Not cheap but very pleased with the results.

After correctly applying the sealer, expect to have between 3-5 years protection*. Sealer longevity will vary dependent on a number of factors such as: traffic (foot/vehicle), weather and general maintenance.
First coat: 2.0sq metres per litre
Second coat: 3.5sq metres per litre
Q: Once applied and dried, what happens if I need to use a pressure washer to clean the block pavers again? Will that damage the sealant? Or will they not need cleaning? How often should the sealer be reapplied?
A: The idea of the Block Paving Sealer is to make it easier to clean moss, algae and general dirt growing/getting on top of the sealer, rather than imbedded into your block paving. You would only need to hose it down to keep it clean or use a block paving cleaner. You can pressure wash, but you would only need to do once a year. If you pressure wash too frequently and aggressively, you could harm/reduce the sealers life span. 2 coats of sealer will last on average 3-5 years. When you see the sealer not performing as effective as before, then this will indicate it needs resealing.
Q: Is their a minimum temperature that the sealer can be applied?
A: The minimum temperature the Block Paving Sealer should be applied is 12Â°C. Any lower runs the risk taking too long to dry or become contaminated.
Q: Good Afternoon, if I placed an order would it be possible for a morning delivery at all as I work a late shift , so not about in the afternoons , I live in Upminster RM14, not sure if there is time for me to collect from you as I normally do.
A: We can specify a morning delivery with our courier for our Block Paving Sealer Matt, but we can't guarantee it would be delivered on AM service â€“ depends where youâ€™re on the list.

Smartseal Block Paving sealer can be applied using a sprayer unit or roller, at a rate of 2.5m2 per litre (pavers) 1st coat & 3.5 m2 per litre 2nd coat. A two-coat spray application is required to fully cover the jointing sand. 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. During the curing cycle, protect from rain. Do not apply when the ground temperature is above 23°C or below 12°C. All equipment should be cleaned with Smartseal tool cleaner after use.
Deicing salts should not be applied directly on Smartseal block paving or concrete sealers. Salt chemically reduces the temperature at which water freezes and will result in water ingress into the concrete. Subsequent freezing may result in the concrete seal being broken by the expansion of water as it freezes and white pitted areas may become visible.
NOT TO BE USED ON CLAY PAVERS
*** 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
New block paving or cobble stone paving should be swept clean, ensuring there is sufficient well-compacted sand in the joints. Existing paving should be pressure washed to remove all surface debris. If the area is contaminated with weeds & moss then it should be treated with Smartseal Fungicidal Wash. Oil and other stains should be removed using Smartseal Cleaner / 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.
