What can I seal my Kobra Granite patio pavers with?
Asked by... Joshua Hudson from Thame

The Question

I have recently installed a Kobra Granite patio and am looking for a recommendation for sealing it.
(The supplier of the product is not being very helpfull with this matter).
I am ideally looking for a matt finish with a wet look.

Could you advise on any particular finish?

Many thanks



 

The Answer

Hello Joshua

Thank you for your question.

As you'll know, we don't sell the Kobra Granite external pavers but of course we'd be happy to help you by way of advice.

In this instance we'd recommend sealing the pavers with the LTP Colour Intensifier and Stainblock, this will protect them against water, oil, grease, dirt, grime and organic matter. The Colour Intensifier is an impregnating sealer which will naturally enhance the colour whilst leaving a matt finish.

In general terms, sealers which offer 'satin' or 'wet look' finishes are usually 'surface sitting' and therefore won't impregnate into the stone but instead work by forming a film over the surface of the tile. It is important to note however that the 'surface sitting' LTP Ironwax (satin) or Ironwax Gloss (wet look) sealers are not suitable for external use so wouldn't be recommended.

I hope this helps you Joshua but please feel free to call our office on 01283 730388, we'll be happy to talk through the options with you.
