Block Paving Sealer in Matt Finish
Solvent Based Acrylic Block Paving Sealer in Matt Finish
Seal block paving with a 'natural' looking matt finish
SmartSeal Block Paving Sealer has been developed to combat the constant problems of staining and weed growth and to enhance the colour and aesthetic appeal of new or mature block paving or flagstones. This sealed surface will increase abrasion resistance and also protect the jointing sand from erosion and weed infestation and provide a barrier to contaminants thereby facilitating easy maintenance.
***NOT TO BE USED ON CLAY PAVERS

- Easy to apply with sprayer or roller
- Protects against loss of colour through UV light
- Resists oil and stain penetration
- Inhibits weed and algae growth
- BS5750/ISO9000 quality approved material
- Make sure before applying that the surface temperature is between 12 - 25°C
- For optimum results apply two coats
- Suitable for most patio slabs & block paving
First coat: 2.0sq metres per litre
Second coat: 3.5sq metres per litre
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 25°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
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.
Technical & Test Data
Smartseal Block Paving sealer has been tested by the TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) and certified that it meets the SRV (Skid Resistance Value) for all categories of paving for local authority pedestrian areas and when heavily trafficked is suitable for special applications where risks of skidding are high as laid down in the UK Highway Authorities Tender Specification. Copies are available on request.
“Newly laid block or flagstone paving shall be treated with Smartseal block paving sealer to protect and stabilise jointing sand and enhance surface colour and increase abrasion resistance. All materials should comply with ISO9002 for Quality Assurance. All work should be carried out in conjunction with the manufacturer’s current technical data sheet and instructions for use”.
