Raj Blend stone sealer

This question was asked by
Parm

i HAVE JUST HAS HAD 100SQM OF RAJ BLEND SANDSTONE LAYED IN THE GARDEN. THE JOB IS COMPLETE AND NOW AM LOOKING TO GET THE PAVING SEALED.

TWO QUESTIONS

WHEN SHOULD I APPLY THE SEALANT AFTER A NEW LAY

WHAT SEALANT COULD BE RECOMMNDED FOR A NATURAL MATT FINSIH AND ONE FOR A WET LOOK.

I HAVE SEEN ON THE PAVING EXPERT SITE THAT Heavy Duty Sealer IS A GOOD OPTION BUT I WANT TO BE SURE.

I have put links below to 3 suitable sealers, The water based one is a matt finish without altering the colour, the Stone and slate will give a matt/satin finish and enhance the colours and the Heavy duty is the same as the Stone and Slate but will give a satin/gloss finish.

You are best to leave it for 3-4 weeks after finishing to allow the mortar to completely dry before applying a sealer.

black limestone sealer

This question was asked by
Dave Thomas

Please can you tell me what you recommend to seal for new laid black limestone we require a wet look finish

I recommend using the stone and slate as some black limestone can be quite nonporous and this sealer is a bit thinner so penetrates better, I also suggest scrubbing in the first coat to help aid with the adhesion.

if you are still looking for more of a gloss finish (the finish can depend on the stone), you could apply a top coat of our Heavy duty which will give more of a gloss/wet look finish.

Best sealant for Indian Stone?

This question was asked by
Alan Buxton

which sealant is best for indian Stone solvent based or water based?

It all depends on how you want the sealed paving to look, a solvent based sealer will enhance the colours and leave the paving looking like it does when it is damp, whereas the water based sealer will leave the paving looking more like it does when the paving is dry.
