CONCRETE PAVER AND TILE SEALANTS

 


Think Smart!
Think Paving New Zealand for genuine urban paving....


All types of concrete pavers and tiles covered


There are three types of sealants available.

Cemix Clear Waterproofer – suitable for all types of genuine urban paving. This is a clear solvent based penetrating sealer, to prevent moisture from entering the paver surface but allows the paver to ‘breathe’. It helps to prevent efflourscence from forming on the surface of the pavers. The sealant normally dries clear and is mostly unnoticeable.

Cemix Cemseal – recommended for the smooth types of pavers.
This is a penetrating sealant that will dry to a low gloss sheen. It will change the look of the paver slightly in colour and intensity. It helps prevent efflourscence.

Cemix Drive Seal – best suited to sandstone paving as the ‘Driveseal’ sealant can make the smooth pavers slippery.
This is a clear thermoplastic acrylic solution to protect and highlight the colour and texture of the pavers. It will change the look of the paver and produces a high gloss coating.

Please note
It is recommended that the pavers are sealed with either Cemseal or Driveseal to protect them from the effect of weathering. The sealants will last between 2 and 3 years depending on usage and installation positions.

Should you decide to seal the pavers directly off the pallet, ensure the sealant does not travel down the sides of the paver if you intend to grout the joints, as the mortar for grouting needs to adhere to an uncontaminated concrete surface on the sides.

If you are using a polymer jointing sand ie, Pavelock, then you need not worry about sealant creeping down the sides.

If the pavers are sealed after installation, they may require a wash down with Hydrochloric Acid (spirits of salts) also available at Placemakers, 15 parts water to 1 part hydro. Ensure the pavers are damp before applying the solution and thoroughly wash down the paver afterwards.

The pavers must be completely dry and showing no signs of dampness before the sealant is applied otherwise a cloudy and milky effect may occur.

Always follow the instructions on the label.

Always seal one paver the with desired number of coats, before applying sealant to the whole area, to check the results.
