COLOUR BOOSTING SEALER FOR NATURAL STONE FLOORING & RESTORING BLACK LIMESTONE

Universeal Enhance & Restore is a powerful impregnating sealer which dramatically enhances the hue and colour of natural stone. Use this to revive faded black limestone.

Universeal Enhance & Restore is a solvent based colour boosting impregnator that penetrates into the surface of the stone to protect from staining and soiling whilst giving a vibrant, bold look. Ideal for restoring black limestone that has faded to grey and can also be applied to slate, natural quarry tiles, sandstone & common types of limestone surfaces. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE ON NON-POROUS, GLAZED SURFACES.

Special Features

  • Revives faded colour & creates a bold striking look
  • For use on black limestone and other typical natural porous patio surfaces including commonly installed sandstone, slate, limestone
  • Protective coating helps to prevent stain/soiling build-ups
  • Easy application with sponge, sprayer or brush
  • Low odour solvent formula

Universeal Enhance & Restore Limestone Sealer (before & after effect)

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  1. Always perform a test in an inconspicuous area on-site to check suitability of product, prior to use – read these instructions fully before application. Before application the surface must be completely clean and dry.
  2. Apply a thin, even coat with a low pressure sprayer, paint pad, natural fibre brush or sponge. Any excess sealer must be completely removed from the surface within 20-30 minutes.
  3. In most cases, one coat will suffice. If the stone surface is very porous then a second coat may be applied after 45-60 minutes, making sure to apply thinly and remove any excess. The end result will be a full matt, non-shine finish.
  4. After application it is important the stone surface is kept totally dry through the curing process (up to 72 hrs). Any moisture or water left on the surface within this time may result in the sealer drying inconsistently, leading to hard to remove white patches.

Please Note:

Application range: 5°c – 20°c. Areas not to be sealed must be protected with masking materials. Results may vary when applying Enhance & Restore, depending on the colour, texture and condition of your natural stone. As a rule, it does not provide radical colourising transformational effects when applied to lighter stones, and in particular it cannot enhance common light and grey sandstones such as Kandla Grey. The sealer will always deliver more noticeable results on darker or colour rich stones, so if you are unsure, we would recommend you complete a test first to see how the finish works on your patio area.

PRO-TIP:

DO NOT OVERAPPLY. Sealer must be applied evenly & thinly. Remove any excess or puddling. Keep the applied surface area dry for 48hrs to avoid white moisture clouding issues.

Expected Wear

Under typical conditions the effect of the impregnation can be considered to have an effect for up to 5 years. Effectiveness and longevity is reliant on initial thorough application, foot traffic and the use of correct maintenance cleaning products.

Coverage:

Up to 40m2 per litre.
Depending on surface porosity and texture.

  4. RESTORED COLOURS TO A GREY PATIO - MADE A MASSIVE DIFFERENCE!

    simon.downey@btinternet.com

    We can confirm what others have said below – our Limestone patio had faded over the last few years to a bland grey look. It would look great when we jet washed it and it was still wet, but then quickly fade back to dullness. We have tried a few colour enhancers in the past, but these have all quickly faded after a few weeks. With this product the difference was noticeable straight away – it seems to penetrate the limestone deeply and even after one coat the patio looked much richer. It is expensive, but a little really does go a long way (which is good as our patio is about 12m long)! Before and after photos attached…as you can see the next job is redoing the grout!

  6. WOW, AMAZING!!

    Amanda Barlett

    What a fantastic product, I was told by the suppliers it was the best product on the market and I certainly believe them now. My Black Limestone Patio is only 2 years old but it had faded badly, to be honest it looked like it had been down 20 years. Until we had spoken to this company we were thinking of ripping up and starting again. The results are absolutely stunning, better than brand new….so pleased, thankyou.

FAQs

I have a Black Limestone patio which has faded badly, would this product work?

Yes, this product is designed to restore the lost colour of Black Limestone slabs. This product will restore the dark black colour whilst sealing the stone against water ingress and staining.

What is the coverage?

As a guidance the coverage is 15-20m2 per litre per coat, this product must be applied very thinly to the surface with 100% of the sealer penetrating in to the stone leaving a restored dark matt finish.

Some areas of the are a little shiny and sticky, WHY?

This product must be applied very thinly, all the sealer must soak in to the stone, any sealer residue left on the stone surface must be wiped or buffed off before it dries. if this doesn't happen then issues like difficult to remove shiny sticky patches will occur.

Can this product be used on Slate to bring the colour out or just Black Limestone?

Yes, this product can definitely be used on slate and most types of natural stone that has faded or needs a lift of the natural colours. Any questions please contact our technical helpline for more advise 01300-345898

Is this product suitable for both New & Old faded patios?
