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.

If this surface was to be sealed with a penetrating sealer, this would keep the appearance relatively similar to the original surface, however, this would do very little to protect the surface. A topical solution was applied.

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.

Paver Sealing by National SealingPaver Sealing by National Sealing Paver Sealing by National Sealing

National Sealing is the largest paver sealing company in the US with well over 2 Million square feet of paver sealing completed. National Sealing mobilizes throughout the US and abroad with our paver sealing and paver coating applications, paver dyeing process and non slip application. In addition to common paver sealer, we utilize our durable three (3) part coating process. Our durable coating process is 3-5x more durable than common sealers. No other company can claim the unique product features and benefits that National Sealing’s coating product offers. A coating that will withstand the damaging effects of chemical abuse, abrasion, and ablation, intense heat, ultra-violet light exposures and corrosive degradation. Common sealers are applied to a surface, but routine cleaning as well as the sun break down common sealers. Our durable coating process has hardeners that form a durable barrier for protection from oils and staining, and a protection barrier that is chemically different from sealers, and therefore will last longer.

A paver installation at a new high end office building required durable protection to maintain the image of the property. In addition to this being an office, there was also a condo component. These pavers would not only be exposed to staining due to this being a drop off area where cars are stopped, or idling, but also damaging effects of the sun. National Sealing was contracted to apply our durable coating process instead of common sealer. All sealers must be re-applied often, usually every 1-1.5 years. In commercial settings, the demands can be much greater. Since this area was high traffic, porous, and a drop off area the owners wanted to keep the area as free from oil stains as much as possible. The benefits of coating vs. sealers:

  • Three part coating process versus mono – component sealer for durable adhesion to challenging surfaces
  • Common sealers needing constant re-application. Coating process much more durable

There exists no other company in the US that has access to, or applies our coatings other than National Sealing’s trained applicators.

National Sealing Company specializes in commercial properties, and can also apply our durable products to residential. National Sealing has demonstrated great success with condominiums, hotels, stadiums, office buildings, and municipalities, in protecting various surfaces with our sealing products, coating products and non slip applications.

Dyeing Pavers in New York

Posted in Pavers Coloring and Staining, Sealing Pavers on April 11th, 2017 by National Sealing – Comments Off on Dyeing Pavers in New York

National Sealing Co. - 954-577-8837 - have a non slip process applied professionally by

This residential application in New York had paver that had faded badly, as well as having a unique pattern. National Sealing customized this application with accents and re-dyed / restored the pavers to almost new looking.

National Sealing mobilizes across the US with our patented dyeing process. To restore faded pavers, ‘staining’ pavers has been around forever. National Sealing is the largest paver sealing Co in the US and has developed our dyeing process to restore faded pavers. By ‘staining’, what you are essentially doing is painting the pavers – not a good look, and does not last, especially in vehicular scenarios. That is what makes our ‘dyeing’ process unique. Our process not only lasts longer, but preserves any existing color, which results in a paver which is completely restored. You can see on our website, examples of newly installed pavers right next to previously faded pavers, which have been re-dyed. The entire area resembles a new paver installation.

This is an application in an Atlanta hotel. Guests were constantly complaining of the floors being slippery, and there was a liability issue. Many hotels are faced with slippery tiles as well as slippery pool decks and slippery spas. National Sealing is the industry leader in anti slip for hotel floors

The options for slippery floors are:

  1. apply a buy-and-apply product from the internet with little to no result or  have a non slip process applied professionally. National Sealing mobilizes across the US and abroad.
  2. Sealing the tiles with an anti slip product will be temporary and we have not found many of the internet product claims to be accurate. This compounds the issue, as the trial version of the non slip product must then be removed prior to any proven methods. This of course adds to the cost.

Our process differs substantially. Our NS-200 coating process vs. sealers are more durable and will last longer. Secondly, if a novice handyman can apply a plastic polymer, or sand from a box store that is added to any sealer mix, these particles are very brittle and wear fast. This will also compound the slip problem, as additional applications of sealer will build up, resulting in flaking, peeling etc….

Our solution is our durable three part coating process. We then broadcast nano beads which are very difficult to crush with pedestrian traffic. This results in a very durable and long lasting surface treatment.

Faded Dyeing VS Replacement Pavers

Posted in Pavers Coloring and Staining, Permanent Coatings/Sealing, Residential Applications, Sealing Pavers on January 9th, 2017 by National Sealing – Comments Off on Faded Dyeing VS Replacement Pavers

National Sealing Co.A residential account had faded pavers and was considering replacement. National Sealing was contracted to apply our patented dyeing process to restore the faded pavers at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Our process uses nano technology. The particles are small to maintain the personality / remaining color of the pavers instead of using a paver stain which resembles painting the pavers and making all the pavers look the same.

Faded Dyeing VS Replacement Pavers

National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in the country with over 2M square feet of pavers protected. We recognized a need to develop a coloring or dyeing process for pavers that had lost their color for various reasons.

Faded Dyeing VS Replacement Pavers

We have developed a penetrating dyeing process or coloring process to faded pavers. We match the original dyes used to color the pavers and can apply our process while keeping the personality of the various medley of colors intact.

Faded Dyeing VS Replacement Pavers

The result is an attractive, restored paver for much less than it would cost to replace.
