I have uncovered a stone wall inside my house. The stone needs sealed to stop dust but it is also dull looking. What would be the best product of yours to use? I would prefer a gloss finish to a Matt finish. As it’s an internal wall I understand it needs to be able to breathe or damp becomes an issue. Please can you advise?

For an Internal wall I would recommend using our Water based sealer (link below), it is safe to work with when applying it to a vertical surface and it has very little odour so wont smell the house out.

can I use this product effectively in a shower area

I have Travertine tiles in my own bathroom, I sealed it with the High gloss PU about 4 years ago and it still looks good as new. The only thing I will say is you need to let the sealer cure for a at least 48 hours before using the area.

Protecting Welsh Slate Flooring

I have a welsh slate floor that was put down 5 years ago in a kitchen. It needs re-protecting as the original stuff I applied has now rubbed off and some small areas now have the bare stone showing (places where chair legs have rubbed etc).

What’s your advice for this in terms of products you suggest and the method of application?

I would suggest using the High gloss PU, this is a very hardwearing sealer, but I would suggest removing the old sealer first as it is obviously having issues with adhesion.

Application instructions will be sent with the product.

I have a concrete kitchen table and am looking for a sealer to give it some protection from stains and heat. What is the best product you have that you could recommend that I use.

For the best protection, I would recommend using the High Gloss PU sealer, this will offer the best protection against stains and spills, it is fairly heat resistant but I wouldn’t recommend placing pans directly from the hob on to the sealer.

Is your High Gloss PU safe to use on laminate tiles?

Hi, just wondering if your High Gloss PU is safe to use on high gloss white laminate tiles?

The High gloss PU should be ok to use, but, it is not something I have ever tested it on so I cannot say with 100% certainty that it will be ok. You would need to test it before applying to the whole area.

Why Is Sealing Important & Why Do I Need It?

Posted in External Sealants, Internal Sealants, Top 20 FAQs   

Sealing a surface, especially your driveway is beneficial in the long run, as it provides a protective coating for your tarmac, block paving, stone and concrete. Just as rust proofing is advantageous for vehicles, driveway sealing protects your driveway’s surface from wear & tear.

How can I know which type of sealant is best for me?

Posted in External Sealants, Internal Sealants   

This is generally about personal preference, whether you want gloss/satin/matt, there are some special cases, if you require an eco friendly sealer the you would require a water based seal, or if you are sealing natural stone such as clay, limestone, sandstone etc then you need a specific stone sealer. Buy from a well established and reputable manufacturer.

Are all sealants of the same quality?

Posted in External Sealants, Internal Sealants   

No. There are hundreds of types and qualities of resin and hundreds of different types of sealants available in the market, each differ based on the methods and products used for their manufacturing. It is best to trust only reliable sources for buying them.
