Been waiting for some weeks to get the requisite dry window. Applied the sealer and now the result is truly amazing. The sandstone is transformed from dull same colour to show the vibrant shades that the stones had when first laid. I recommend this wholeheartedly as I do the technical dept. response to my questions.
The sealer is easy to use and improves the tiles significantly.
This sealer is amazing.It will give you a better-than-brand-new finish on sandstone that lasts. Five stars - worth every penny.
Natural Stone Sealer - ULTIMATE ENHANCER
FOR SANDSTONE ONLY! (Sample, 1L,5L,25L Sizes) - NOT recommended for use on Limestone, Granite or Slate. Average coverage of 4- 6 m²/litre, up to 5 years protection; for Sandstone only.
Our Ultimate Colour Enhancing Sealer will transform natural Sandstone** and Indian Sandstone** patios, drives and floors. To avoid trapping in moisture, the sealer is fully breathable and once applied it will leave the surface with that 'just rained on' look, bringing to life the natural rich colours within the stone or slate. The Ulimate Colour Enhancer is a 'colour intensifier' for natural stone surface where the preferred look is when the surface has been rained in and the colours are darkened.
By 'impregnating' into the surface and sealing from within, our Ultimate Colour Enhancing Sealer offers the very latest in protection.. Solvent Free and safe to use around animals, children and vegetation, the sealer is easy to use with application by roller, sprayer or paint brush.
**Exceptions to Sandstone suitability:
Please note this product is not suitable for Kandla Grey (mid and light grey) Sandstone and is NOT recommended for use on Limestone, Granite or Slate
If your Natural Stone has been recently 'pointed' using a 'sweep in' pointing compound, please contact us before application on 01268 722500
Q: We have an exposed sandstone wall in our kitchen. Is this product ok to use on a wall. Would like the colour of the stone enhanced and prevent the dust from the wall too.
A: This sandstone sealer is 'breathable' so it can be used on an internal wall. Samples are available if you would like to try on a test area 1st
Q: [''Please note this product is not suitable for Kandla Grey (mid and light grey)''] Is there a specific technical reason why the ultimate enhancer is not recommended for greys? ( the image in the description above is grey). I have tried a sample on our Kandla grey internal flooring and it looks pretty good. Trying to understand why not recommended. thanks.
A: The minerals in the Kandla Grey stone are not compatible with the resins in the Natural Stone Sealer Ultimate Enhance. This could run the risk of leaving a patchy finish. Because of the inconsistencies, we donâ€™t recommend any of our enhancing Natural Stone Sealers on Kandla Grey.
Q: Please could you assist, I have a granite patio which is looking a little dull, would the product enhance the colour of the granite as well as seal and reduce the likelihood of staining.
A: If you're looking to add depthless of colour to your granite, we wouldn't recommend using our Natural Stone Sealer Ultimate Enhance. It is a very thick sealer, that would run the risk of not adhering correctly, due to the density of the stone. The only sealer you could use on granite for enhancing the colour would be our Natural Stone Sealer Colour Enhance. We have samples available if you wanted to test it out for peace of mind.
If required, pre-treat the surface of the sandstone with an appropriate cleaning product, then fully clean the surface of the sandstone using a pressure washer and leave to dry thoroughly for at least 3 days. If pointed within the last 6 months using a 'sweep-in' jointing compound, the surface must be cleaned using Smartseal Residue Remover and left to fully dry prior to applying the sealer.
This is dependant on the porosity and texture of the Sandstone, but the average is 5-6m² per litre for the first coat and approx 10-15m² per litre for the second coat.
Prior to application always apply to a test area first in an inconspicuous area to determine suitability.
STORAGE & SHELF LIFE:
Store in a cool, well ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed.
Use within 12 months of purchase and within 3 months once open.
