I’ve just had a new block paved drive laid and I’m wanting to seal it. It’s 130sq.m. and it will have 2 cars and a caravan on it on a regular basis. I’m wanting to proof it from oil leaks and stains but also enhance the colour to a sort of a ‘wet look’ without making it look too glossy. What do you recommend?

I would recommend using the Block paving SP sealer this will do what you are looking for, I would suggest getting 2 x 25 ltrs and 1 x 20 ltrs to complete the job.

How do I prepare the surface?

Full details of preparation are available from the download section of this website. In brief, it is necessary to thoroughly clean the paving you will be coating, preferably with a jet washer and ensure that all grease, loose materials, oil stains etc are removed.

The paving should then be allowed to dry thoroughly (full depth, not just the surface). If you are sealing block paving you will then need to apply sand to the joints and we would recommend that you do this on the day that you intend to seal to avoid the sand getting damp in the interim.

Any loose sand should be carefully brushed off the surface before sealing.

Will oil stains show through the sealants?

It is essential that you remove all oil stains prior to sealing as they may show through the sealer. This can be done easily with our orange degreaser.
