Choosing a sealant for you Natural Paving

Unlike most other sealants, the water based Pavetuf Invisible and Satin Sealants are unique and fully breathable, allowing efflorescence to escape, whilst preserving the look of the paving and acting as a barrier to protect it against staining. The Pavetuf Invisible and Satin Sealants can be applied as soon as the patio/path/driveway is completed.

Pavetuf Satin Sealant ComparisonLesser quality and cheaper sealants on the market cannot be applied in this way, as most are not breathable and will lock in the efflorescence which needs to escape from the stone after installation. Trapped efflorescence will create marking and future problems. Most sealer manufacturers therefore recommend a 3 month waiting time from the stone being installed to application of their sealant. Within those 3 months, the stone is exposed to all of the elements and other potential risks i.e. leaves, birds, pets, red wine spillage. The risk is minimised if you apply the Pavetuf Sealant immediately after the patio is completed, so the potential for problems is minimised. As the Pavetuf product penetrates deeply into the stone it starts to work immediately and provides protection for up to 8 years, unlike other sealants that only guarantee 12 months protection.

Please be careful not to choose other chaeaper sealants that just sit on top of the stone and do not penetrate the stone, as stone is a natural product it needs a breathable sealant.

You can use Pavetuf Sealants on paths, drives and patios of the following materials:

Natural stone
Artificial stone

Why use the Pavetuf Sealants?

Fully breathable and can be applied as soon as the path / patio / drive is laid – unlike many other sealants
Protects the stone against ageing, atmospheric and industrial pollution, greasy soiling, water seepage, acid rain, airborne dirt, organic growths and even chewing gum
Can actually make the landscaped area self-cleaning as in rainy spells, the rain water will wash away material that is unable to penetrate your patio, resting on the surface
Lasts up to 8 years
Water based and easy to apply
Professional quality products
Environmentally friendly

“Pound for pound it makes sense to use Pavetuf Sealants on all your paths, patios and driveways, in fact using a Pavetuf Sealer will cost you as little as £2 per square meter.”
Both of the sealants are exterior anti-stain treatments that are water and oil repellent and provide total protection for all porous paths, drives and patios.

The main difference between the two products is the aesthetic finished look it gives to the stone, once the sealant has dried and how we recommend you apply it to the stone:

satin sealer
Satin sealant
An easy to apply sealant that once applied, dries with a satin, enriched look.
Ideally apply with a garden weed sprayer

Stone Sealant

Invisible sealant
Invisible sealant
An easy to apply sealant that once applied, dries with a natural, almost invisible finish.
Ideally apply with a garden weed sprayer, finishing with a brush or roller
