products all arrived very promptly with good communication to keep me in the picture. Unfortunately I'm still waiting for a dry spell in which to use them. I have used the repair mix before ordering more of the same ( I've got a lot of drive / patio to do ) and the full sealing products. That's the best evidence I can give that I was satisfied with what I've used : if the rest is as good as it sounds I shall be very pleased !

Hi Nigel, Luke & Co , I would just like to let you know how delighted I am to have found your company, your products and the guidance given in restoring my imprinted concrete drive. I admit I'm not the worlds greatest DIY expert, but with careful preparation and your guidance the end product has exceeded all expectations. I don't remember the drive looking this good when it was later 18 years ago. Many thanks and best regards,

Having had a garage/ workshop built of 42 x 21 ft (Wifey calls it the man house) I needed a product to seal the concrete floor. My previous garage in the UK was forever dusting and breaking up every type of covering you can imagine, I did not want a repeat, it was due to a weak mix. I scoured France for the correct product, spoke to 4 or 5 builders, floor tigers etc and nobody had a solution to seal the concrete, so, on to google and after a few weeks head scratching rang Smartseal. I described what I had, which is a 6 month old concrete floor, power floated to a smooth finish. I was advised to use the Imprinted concrete sealer, not the standard concrete sealer. I then described the workshop use, which is wood turning, creating lots of fine dust, which in itself presents a hazard on a smooth floor, so again was advised to buy the anti-slip additive. Me being a belt and braces type of guy, I ordered after discussion the External seal for the internal use. Besides, solvent based products always outperform the water based alternatives. Next problem was how to get 50l of it to France, fortuitously I was due back in England the next weekend for a 50th wedding anniversary, so it was arranged for it all to be delivered next day to my mate in Northants. I met him in Croydon for his anniversary celebration and duly swapped the cans over to my car, hiding them behind rugs etc as I wasn't supposed to carry hazardous materials in the channel tunnel. Bugger that, it's no more dangerous than the tank of petrol, so I broke the rules! I was conscious of the risks, so also visited Screwfix for rubber gauntlets, a face shield (goggles don't work over glasses) and a twin filtered respiratory mask for fumes, not dust. I first hoovered the floor, twice, then swilled and scrubbed, removed the sap that had dropped from the A-frames (imagine your own swear words) and left to dry for a week, used a moisture meter to check it was dry, below 5%. Using the brush recommended got to work on the first half, full ventilation, 3 windows, 2 garage doors and a front door fully open brushed the first coat in. 3 hours later it was 90% dry, so added the anti-slip to the second tin and applied again with a brush. Upon returning the next morning I noticed two things, about a hundred dead flies stuck to the surface, all dead because of the fumes and brush marks in the finish, I used the Matt version and the finish I would describe as half way between Matt and silk and a slight darkening. So after carefully removing the flies, I decided to add a 3rd coat with a roller, what a difference, I now have a perfectly sealed floor, looks great and even with very sloppy shoes I could not twist, the grip is beyond expectations. So, thank you all at smart seal for your help, your products are excellent, just watch out for the flies!

We were contemplating putting a new surface on our drive as it was looking very sorry for itself and a little worse for wear. After applying the smart seal sealant along with a colour tint, our driveway looks like it did the day it was initially laid. Complete transformation for a fraction of the cost!

By Beth From Swansea

Used this product before and so am a returning customer. That says it all! Originally Smartseal turned a bad rip off job, into a very acceptable product. It has been hard wearing and easy to clean. I have now freshened it up with a quick whizz over and again it looks great. Good Company with a good , sorry GREAT product, complemented with a very helpful work force.

Wow, if I had known it was so easy to seal the drive I would not have waited so long. It took longer to jet wash the drive than it did to seal it. The instructions made it look so easy I phoned the office to make sure I had not got it wrong, they are very helpful. I will make sure I seal the drive every few years from now on. Many thanks

Hello Nigel I used some of your products to seal our unfinished imprinted concrete project on our front garden. I wanted to leave it a while before I wrote a review so I would have a better understanding of wear and tear etc. The product went down very well. It also seems to be wearing very well, considering the state it was left in originally. Now looks far better than before. 9/10 for product. 10/10 for advice and information. I could not have asked for more help. Five Stars all round. Many Thanks to All

I had concrete stamping done in my front and back garden about 4 years ago and needed to reseal it and add some colour. After speaking to Nigel, I decided to have a go at doing it my self, with help from my husband. Nigel was more than helpfull he advised what products to buy and how much, he also gave us step by step instrunctions from start to finish, We were also able to contact Nigel on his mobile. I would reccomend this company every time . Thankyou, my garden is looking better now than it did when we first had it done The products were easy to use and have made my garden look great

A very good easy to use product, as I hadn't really looked after my drive! It's been over 6 years since I sealed the drive it was looking in a very poor condition and few cracks had developed. I was considering having it replaced. I purchased the seal, repair compound, colour and anti slip mixture along with the application brush. All of the products are fantastic the drive looks as good as when it was first put down it took a good days hard work. Fantastic value for money, I have no reservation in recommending this company or products.

Ordered Matt sealer ( because i needed some repair work to be done ), brush, tint and anti slip roughly a month ago . The delivery had been left at my neighbour 's house --and on my inspection i read the label clearly marked Silk on the Drum. On telephoning the office i was asked the colour of the lid and i was told the drum (orange lid ) simply had the wrong label on it and it was in fact matt so i accepted that . Today i followed the video guidelines and applied the finish to my drive --- it WAS silk after all !--- but having said that the finish produced is superb - i'm very satisfied with the product and will definitely use again i would give the product 5 . BUT only 1 for giving me incorrect information over the phone .

The sealer and broom arrived the following day. I gentleman from Smartseal rang me after my order to make sure I had ordered the right product and actually changed the type of sealant prior to dispatch. He also gave me advice on the use of the products. Excellent service. I find the broom is a little wide for the average bucket

By Jack Milhench From Oldham

Can't believe how easy this product is to use. After pondering for several years about resealing our drive ourselves we finally took the plunge. The job took about half a day and the drive looks like it did when we first had it laid, and at about a sixth of the cost of the best quote we had to have the work done trade.

: I have now finished the sealing on my drive and have got to say I could not be more delighted with your product. I thank you for the very speedy delivery. It does exactly what you say and has left the drive and path as new and very evenly coloured. The product is easy to mix and brushes on very easily to leave a very professional finish. I will be returning for more when it is required.

I have resealed my patio several time over the past 20 years. It looked great for a few days but then after it rained dust seamed to stick to it and would not brush. But this time I used Smartseal. The finish is amazing and after lots of rain it looks as good as the day i first did it.Thank you for a fantastic product.

I found your Company excellent to deal with. Your agent that I spoke to before I ordered my Matt, additive and anti slipping confirmed that I had understood your detailed step-by-step guide and gave me the confidence to order what I needed to restore my driveway. I placed the order and received a call from another of your Agents to double check that I had ordered the correct goods for my project. You are a very customer oriented business and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that requires your products. My driveway is restored to it original state with just a few hours of my time. Thanks a million!

What great service and products, the advice I received from the staff after sending in some photos of my sad driveway has now made it look better now then when it was first done. The tint used with the matt as a first coat, followed by a final coat with the silk a little more tint has produced the finish that I was hoping for. After the poor job done by the so called experts I was at the point of having the driveway dug up, but thanks to finding Smartseal I now have an imprinted conrete driveway that looks great. A big thank you to all the staff.

I ordered the matt imprinted concrete sealer, imprinted concrete colour tint and a sealing broom. I received a call the following day to check that the items ordered where exactly what I needed. The adviser recommended using the coloured crack filler would be the best option instead of the colour tint, to fill hairline cracks and make repairs to the chipped areas. Items where dispatched the same day and arrived the following morning. I am very pleased with Smart Seals advice and service. The crack filler was extremely easy to apply and after applying the sealer has made my drive look just like new again. Many thanks to Smart Seal.

Just a quick note to thank you for your recommendations on what materials to buy and excellent after care service you provided. My drive now looks like new again, (except for were conrete had broken away) colour brilliant . Did not expect the results I got, after paying firms on the last 3 occassions I had been very dissapointed with the results. Had been told that nothing could be done to get colour back. On using your excellent products and yourself being on the end of the phone to guide me step by step I am overjoyed with results. Next year I will buy your concrete reair compound to try and smooth areas that have broken away and then reseal and colour as this time. Once again thank you very much for your advice and excellent products, I will definetly recommend your company to friends and family. It's refreshing to come across a comany with fantastic after care service.

Description

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.  

Average Coverage
4 to 6m² per litre (dependent on condition). To apply, use an imprinted concrete sealing broom

Technical

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.

TECHNICAL & TEST DATA 

Has been tested by the TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) and certified that it meets the SRV (Skid Resistance Value) for all categories of paving for local authority pedestrian areas and when heavily trafficked is suitable for special applications where risks of skidding are high as laid down in the UK Highway Authorities Tender Specification. Copies available on request.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Flammable liquid. Do not smoke. Keep application area well ventilated. Wear respirator when applying. Store in a cool place. Flash point 42°C (Abel-Closed Cup). Refer to the Health & Safety Data Sheet for further information.
