This scenario was a residential account that had a spa for years on their pavers. Not only did the exposed pavers fade, but with removal of the spa, the protected area stood out. The pavers had to be RE-DYED to restore entire area to new looking.

In this case, it was too late for any type of sealing to try to revive the pavers. The clear mismatch would just be more pronounced. Staining the pavers would have resulted in an unnatural look of being painted, basically ruining the pavers. In addition, painting the surface would not only create a smoother surface and slip hazard, but would be a challenge to maintain as the paint would begin to wear with time. Staining (painting pavers) doesn’t really work. If you’ve ever seen a cement sidewalk painted – it’s the same thing!

A unique option developed by National Sealing Co. re-dyes faded pavers. National Sealing is the largest paver sealing Co in the US. We mobilize across the US with our unique dyeing process, coating of pavers, as well as non slip applications.

Reduce Slip And Fall Accidents With A Durable Anti-Slip Coating Application

Posted in Anti Slip Coatings, Non Slip Application on November 8th, 2017 by National Sealing – Be the first to comment

Reduce Slip And Fall Accidents With A Durable Anti-Slip Coating Application with National Sealing CompanyNational Sealing was contracted to provide our non slip application for this new apartment community. The sides of the pool or copings were stone, and a bit slippery. Being prudent to reduce the risk of litigation, the developer invested in our clear, durable non slip application to create a profile that would create an anti slip surface, while preserving the beauty of the stone.

Slip and fall accidents pose one of the biggest risks to all types of businesses today. This is a completely unnecessary risk for companies to take on when they could easily be avoided with a permanent anti-slip coating application in key and potentially problematic areas. When you think that a single slip and fall accident whether by an employee or member of the public could result in a law suit that could easily put you out of business not investing in a anti-slip coating for your company or property is at best reckless. Most slip and fall concerns could be eliminated with a quality anti-slip coating. We caution the internet / DYI applications as most have questionable results.

By investing in an anti-slip coating application for areas at risk of slip and fall your business can easily fend off frivolous lawsuits, prove due diligence, and know that you have taken every precaution and preventative measure to reduce such slip and fall incidents.

ANTI SLIP APPLICATION FOR STONE

ANTI SLIP APPLICATION FOR STONE

A very large condo was under construction. Each unit is high end. The developer did not want to distract from the aesthetics by installing hand grips as you enter the spa. The only other option, was to apply a non slip coating to the steps in each of the 400+ units. National Sealing was contracted to apply our durable non slip coating application to the entire condo.

National Sealing mobilizes throughout the US as well as international with our durable non slip process. We are the only company in the US that specializes in non slip applications.

Or coating process is a durable, multi-component process that includes a hardener. This is a more durable process than what a sealer might offer. Our process is applied by our trained professionals and is not sold. We’ve witnessed sealer processes that combine sealer with shaved plastic or ‘shark-type’ particles. This process is good – however a very temporary solution. The tops of the embedded plastic wears, and you’re left with just the sealer on the surface. This actually compounds the issue and actually makes the surface even more slippery. Our coating process combines small glass beads that are broadcast onto the surface and then ‘locked in’ with a top coat. The result is not only a durable coating, but a durable non slip aggregate as well.

Currently we know of no other process that will match the durability and longevity of the coating process combined with our anti slip application

How to Protect and Seal Granite from Oil Stains

Posted in Sealing Stone & Marble on October 20th, 2017 by National Sealing – Comments Off on How to Protect and Seal Granite from Oil Stains

How to protect and seal granite from oil stains How to protect and seal granite from oil stainsThis scenario was a large condo that had installed gray granite pavers. Gray pavers are the most difficult to protect. If the granite is not sealed soon after installation, being a very porous but dense surface, the oils absorb, but are very difficult to remove. The result is black dots against a gray background. The stains really stand out. Keeping the very light gray tones is not very practical in a vehicular setting. Ultimately the gray becomes darker with tire marks, as well as spotted oil stains. The choice comes down to having the lighter gray stones, with a lot of black dots, and constant cleaning, or darken the stone all together for a more unified look.

If this surface was to be ‘sealed’ with a penetrating sealer, this would keep the appearance relatively similar to the original gray surface, however, this would do very little to protect the surface. Another approach would have been to utilize any other type of conventional ‘surface sealer’, however, sealers by definition do not last long – typically 1-1.5ys. This is a very busy valet area, and not easily closed each year to clean & re-apply a sealer. National Sealing was chosen to provide our durable COATING process which is typically 3-4x more durable than common sealers.

How to Re-Stain Faded Pavers

Posted in Pavers Coloring and Staining on October 12th, 2017 by National Sealing – Comments Off on How to Re-Stain Faded Pavers

This residential application had pavers that had faded badly over the years.

In this case, it was too late for any type of clear sealer to try to revive the pavers. The options would be to stain the pavers from products available at the big box stores OR utilize National Sealing’s revolutionary dyeing process.  Although the stain would penetrate to some extent, the customer thought the end result would give a ‘painted’ look and would resemble more of a uniformed, stamped concrete look that isn’t much better that just keeping the faded pavers in place.

How to Re-Stain Faded Pavershow to re stain faded pavers This was a good lesson in sealing or protecting any and all pavers. The sun will fade the pigment used in pavers in approximately 4 years. Sealing pavers, or, as offered by National Sealing Co, coating the pavers for more durability and longevity is absolutely necessary to protect from fading as well as staining.

A unique option offered by National Sealing Co. is utilizing the latest in technology or nano-technology. We have developed a formula for re-coloring or restoring faded pavers. These thin particles allow any color to still show through resulting in a naturally restore paver versus a stained / painted look.

During construction, the small natural divots in the stone had filled with construction / drywall dust. Many chemicals and approaches were attempted to no avail. National Sealing was brought in to not only have the stone effectively cleaned, but apply a quality sealer to preserve the stone, and make the stone easier to maintain.

NON SLIP APPLICATION FOR TRAVERTINE STONE

Posted in Anti Slip Coatings, Non Slip Application on June 13th, 2017 by National Sealing – Comments Off on NON SLIP APPLICATION FOR TRAVERTINE STONE

 National Sealing specializes in non slip applications across the US and abroadA customer had experimented with common sealer + a non slip product purchased from a big box store. They soon learned why National Sealing specializes in non slip applications across the US and abroad. If it were as easy as buying a product from the internet, or do-it-yourself, there would not be a need for our services. National Sealing was established in 2001, and have had hundreds of applications in the US, as well as international applications for our specialty coating process.

Durable non slip applications require two components. First, what is the vehicle used to adhere to the surface. If a sealer is used, sealers are temporary and have to be reapplied annually. We apply our durable, three part coating for long lasting results.

The second part of the equation is; what is used as the anti slip media. Most will use a shark-type product readily available or even play sand. These products work, however, they are VERY brittle and soft, and do not last long. We have nano beads specifically manufactured for National Sealing.

A word of caution when attempting to apply any type of sealer for this purpose, by definition, sealers are temporary. By layering sealers, this will result in each layer being less stable. Eventually the area will flake, peel and will need to be stripped. A very costly and sometimes messy proposition.
