Follow the instructions and you'll get a superb looking slate patio.

By George Lukaszewicz From Camberley

I deliberately left it a few weeks before submitting this as things can look different after a while. So overall our patio looks better after using this product to be fair. The original ‘wet’ look has weathered in a bit but it is still far better than the dusty kind of look that slate typically has after being rained and walked on. What Smartseal don’t tell you is that to begin with you will have water marks that dry onto it due to the beading effect that the product gives. Lately with the dry weather and having to water the garden, this has been evident although we do live in a hard water area. We just bought a micro fibre mop which has proved effective in removing these which we are relieved about and better than a standard broom. An additional bit of advice, when you apply it just stay off of it for a few days else you may leave permanent footprints as the initial finish is tacky. When asked Smartseal said it would be ok and then when I showed them the footprints they said to re apply a light coat to cover them up. They then refused to replace the extra litre of product I used which was disappointing. All said and done, I would do it again anyway knowing what i know now.

PREPARATION: Prior to application of Slate sealer or natural stone sealer ensure surfaces to be sealed are clean, dry and free from contamination. If algae or stains are present pre treat prior to cleaning with a appropriate cleaning product.

**If applied to a surface where a "sweep-in" pointing compound has been used, the natural stone must be fully cleaned with an acid wash/effloresence remover prior to sealant application.**

APPLICATION: A suitable  pressure sprayer or roller is recommended taking care to avoid any pooling. Application on all substrates should be to full saturation and on vertical surfaces commence at the bottom and work upwards.

For internal surfaces application by a suitable cloth is appropriate.

Remove any excess after 20/30 minutes.

One application is normally required, do not apply in damp conditions at temperatures below 5°C. Shake container well before use.

Finish may vary according to the type of stone applied too.
Always apply to a test area first.
