Imprinted Concrete Sealer in Matt Finish for Driveways and Patios
Step-by-Step Video Guide
Patterned Imprinted Concrete Sealer (Matt finish)
Our imprinted concrete sealer in a matt finish is a protective sealer to help retain the original colour and finish of imprinted concrete driveways and patios. We recommend two coats of sealer for best results. Any slight sheen that may be visible when first applied will soon disappear leaving a matt finish on your driveway or patio.
If you want to restore the original colour of a patterned imprinted concrete driveway or patio, our imprinted concrete sealer in matt can also be used with colour tints. Just add a small amount of colour tint to the sealer and do a test area to make sure you are happy with the depth of colour before applying to the whole area.
PLEASE NOTE: The imprinted concrete sealer in matt should only be a applied to a dry surface.
4 to 6m² per litre (dependent on condition). To apply, use an imprinted concrete sealing broom
PREPARATION & APPLICATION
The imprinted concrete driveway or patio should be completely dry. After pressure washing leave for 2-3 days for the concrete to dry out. Once dry, sweep the surface of the concrete to remove any dust, dirt or other contaminants.
Apply the imprinted concrete sealer with a soft broom. Apply the 1st coat and then leave to dry for 1-2 hours depending on ambient temperature. Once dry or tacky to touch, apply a 2nd coat for long lasting protection to the concrete. Avoid applying the imprinted concrete sealer in direct sunlight or temperatures above 25 degrees centigrade. Do not apply if rain is forecast within 3 hours of application.
We do not recommend putting de-icing salts directly on Smartseal block paving or concrete sealers. Salt chemically reduces the temperature at which water freezes and may result in water penetration into the concrete. Any subsequent freezing could result in the ‘seal’ being broken by the expansion of water once it freezes.
