Brilliant block paving sealer and excellent delivery .. cant ask for anything more

By Dave Hardie

I am waiting for the weather to improve before doing the job

By Sharon HoweFROM -

My block paving was here when we moved in and has been down since the 1990s. The area is a courtyard, patio and side path and is vast so replacing wasn't an affordable option. The blocks were faded and weathered and generally made the area look run down and like a work yard. We opted for BlockMagic in tan. I would describe the colour as a muted, more natural red. Application was easy and I did it all myself over 3 weekends, including jetwashing, new kiln dried sand and clear sealer. In all, it took 75 litres (3 drums) and as expected my blocks needed 2 coats as they were heavily weathered and pitted. They have come up amazing and make the area look revived and smart again.

Product Description

Add colour to your block paving to make it look like new.

Smartseal "Block Magic" is a blend of liquid pigments and acrylic resins that soaks deeply into paving, totally transforming and protecting block paving driveways and patios. 'Block Magic' replaces the colour that sun, rain, vehicles and pressure washing has taken away. Apply one coat of 'Block Magic' by brush or roller, leave to dry, re-sand the joints and then apply a coat of our clear sealer. PLEASE NOTE: old or poorly conditioned pavers may require two coats of Block Magic to achieve a uniform finish.

There are 2 methods which can be carried out on Block Paving. The first method is to keep the sand the original colour and the second to change the colour of the sand (whilst protecting the area).

Application Guidelines To KEEP Sand Original Colour:
  1. Ensure paving is pressure washed/cleaned to remove all surface debris and 'muck' from joints.
  2. Leave paving to dry for5 clear & dry days.
  3. Apply one coat of Block Magic with Roller. If you're changing the colour you may need to apply two coats (coverage in description)
  4. Leave Block Magic to dry for around 3 hours.
  5. Re-sand surface area, with "kiln-dried sand".
  6. Lastly, apply a coat of the Smartseal Block Paving Sealer MATT or SILK, this will adhere to the colour and solidify the sand.
Application Guidelines To CHANGE Sand Colour:
  1. Ensure paving is pressure washed/cleaned to remove all surface debris and 'muck' from joints.
  2. Leave paving to dry for 5 clear & dry days.
  3. Re-sand surface area, with ''kiln-dried sand''.
  4. Apply two coats of Block Magic with a Roller, leaving 2 hours between each coat.
  5. Ensure no rainfall is due for at least 8 hours after application.

After correctly applying the sealer, expect to have between 3-5 years protection*. Sealer longevity will vary dependent on a number of factors such as: traffic (foot/vehicle), weather and general maintenance.

Technical

Liquid UV stable pigments blended with acrylic resins and solvents create "block magic". Developed by Smartseal with older block paving in mind, it will not only recolour block paving but protect the paving from future colour loss, weeds algae and staining.

'Block Magic' Coloured Paving Sealer is applied by roller, at a rate of approx 3.0m per litre (around 2.5m per litre on old pavers). Make sure the colour has dried evenly across the block paving before applying a clear second coat of sealer.Prior to applying sealer, sweep kiln dried sand into the joints and ideally compact with 'wacker plate'.The sealer will be tack free within 2 hours at 20C and foot traffic may be permitted after 4 hours. Vehicles should be kept off the sealed area for a minimum of 24 hours at 20C. These times may be increased or reduced depending on the ambient temperature.
Ensure no rain is forecast for at least 6 hours after application. Do not apply when the ground temperature is above 23C or below 12C.
All equipment should be cleaned with Smartseal cleaning fluid after use.

Deicing salts should not be applied directly on sealed block paving or concrete sealers.
Salt chemically reduces the temperature at which water freezes and will result in water ingress into the pavers.
Subsequent freezing may result in the paving 'sealer' being broken by the expansion of water as it freezes and white 'pitted' areas may become visible.

*****NOT TO BE USED ON CLAY PAVERS

*** If your Block Paving has been previously sealed - to ensure compatibility, please contact us here before ordering: https://www.smartseal.co.uk/help-advice/contact-us.htm

Preparation
 
Existing paving should be pressure washed to remove all surface debris and muck from the joints.
If the area is contaminated with weeds & moss then it should be treated with Smartseal moss clear or weed killer.
Oil and other stains should be removed using Smartseal Driveway Cleaner or Oil Remover.
The treated area should then be left to dry and the joints re-sanded & compacted to the lower edge of the paver chamfers with clean kiln-dried sand.
Moisture in the paver & sand will inhibit penetration of the sealer and produce whiteness.

Product FAQs

Q: How much does a 25ltr tin of Block magic cover in square mtrs

Tony Callaghan

A: The Block Magic will travel approx 3.0m² per litre (around 2.5m² per litre on old pavers)so dependant on how old the driveway is the Block Magic will travel between 75m2 & 62.5m2 for your first coat.

Response from Christie

Q: What finish will Block Magic provide?

Ross Gerwin

A: Used in isolation Block Magic will provide a Matt finish. However, once the final coat (clear sealer) is applied (in matt or silk), a satin appearance can be achieved.

Response from Alex

Q: How many coats of Block Magic are required?

Brenda Miller

A: If you plan to apply clear sealer on your top coat, one coat is required, a second coat of block magic would only be recommended if the appearance is uneven or patchy. Apply the sealer using an average coverage rate of 3m2 per litre.
