How to Seal Pavers

/How to Seal Pavers

PREPARATION

Sealing pavers keeps them clean and protected for up to 3 years. For the best results we definitely recommend cleaning and re-sanding pavers before beginning to apply sealant.

TOOLS & MATERIALS

ESTIMATED TIME

  • Walkway – 2 hours
  • Patio- 4 hours
  • Driveway – 6-8 hours

Pro Tip: You will need approximately 1 gallon of Seal n’ Lock Super Wet per 200 square feet of your pavers.

MIXING SEALANT

Seal n’ Lock Super Wet sealant is a 2 part urethane solution which needs to be mixed before application. Mix by combining contents of Package B into Package A. Then, mix thoroughly with power mixer. After combining the urethane contents you must apply the solution within 2 hours. You cannot store the solution for future use.

HOW TO SEAL PAVERS

FLOOD COAT

For the flood coat we recommend using 2 parts water and 1 part Seal n’ Lock Super Wet. Using the sprayer system apply the sealant holding the sprayer tip 10-12 inches from the pavers. The sealant coat will dry in 1 – 2 hours. If you overspray on other surfaces you can rinse off the sealant with water.

TOP COAT

After the flood coat has dried, begin mixing the top coat of sealant. Seal n’ Lock recommends diluting the top coat with 1 part water and 1 part sealant. However, we found the best results when we didn’t dilute the sealant at all (especially if your pavers are absorbent). Lay down the top coat solution with the sprayer system holding the tip 10-12 inches away from the pavers.

The sealant will be a white in color when its first applied, but it will dry crystal clear. The top coat will take approximately 1 hour to dry. Allow the sealant to dry for up to 4 hours before opening the area to foot traffic and 48 hours for vehicles.

CLEAN UP

After sealing your pavers immediately flush the sprayer system with a mixture of 3 gallons of water, 2 ounces of Pine Sol and 1 pound of baking soda. Run a few gallons of water through the pump to flush out the system.
