Yes it will solidify the sand joints, for 190m2 I would recommend getting 3 x 20litres.

I want to cover around 60 sq metres of Indian Sandstone in a wet look (what is the difference between wet and gloss) ho mush would i need?

I find the term “wet look” a bit ambiguous, when most people use this term they are meaning gloss.

Solvent based sealers will change/enhance the colour of the stone leaving it looking like it does when wet, our Stone and slate sealer will enhance the colour and give a matt (1 coat) /satin (2 coats) finish, while the Heavy duty sealer will give a satin/gloss finish.

Is this suitable for use on ceramic/ terracotta tiles?


Unfortunately not.

This is a concrete stain and will only work on concrete.

Kind regards

Having carried out a successful trial with your Muffin Stain we are now ready to place an order for a larger quantity. What sealant do you recommend to use with it please and what is its coverage rate?

I recommend using the water based sealer to go over the Newlook stains.

Endurance solid stain

This question was asked by
Lisa hall

I am enquiring regarding the Endurance solid stain and would it be compatible to paint over the top of my pre cast riven patio/paving slabs?
If not, what would you recommend?
I would like to change the colour of the slabs, will this cover any existing colour?
Do you have any images of the Black & Charcoal customer images?
Is the stain Matt or Gloss?
I have a very large tin of Thompson patio sealer (unopened) can I use this to seal the stain once applied?
Also, how much is p+p?
Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your enquiry.

The Newlook stains are suitable to use on any concrete surface, the stains themselves will leave a matt finish, please check our our stains website for photos and most importantly the videos section which has how to videos to get the best possible results.

To be totally honest with you, if you still have the receipt for the thompsons sealer, take it back, it is a terrible sealer, you will find that within a few weeks you will need to redo the sealer as it will have failed, it is a complete waste of money, we have scores of people per year that come to us after having used this brand of sealer wanting a better quality one. Also that sealer could negatively effect the stain, we here at Adseal always recommend using a water based sealer over the Newlook stains, such as the one linked below.

I have a36m2 concrete slabbed patio and would like to change the colour.the patio is about 15 yrs old and dirty. Can you advise cleaning product and stain type?Thank you

Your quickest and easiest way to refurb tired paving would be to use the Endura Solid Stain, this will give you a solid uniform colour.

As for cleaning, you don’t need any special cleaning product a good power washing will suffice.

Smart Colour Stain

This question was asked by
Kevin Bannister

Hello, recently I have had a water leak which required part of my patterned concrete drive to be dug up, when they repaired the section of concrete the company did not stain it and it now looks terrible. Can I use your stain to make it look like the rest of my driveway? Thank you Kevin

Yes the stains will allow you to colour the concrete to some thing like the same colour (it might not be possible to get an exact match but you should be able to get something very close).

If you could send me a few pictures of the drive I can advise you on which colours would be best suited.
