This was a residential application. The board’s major concern was the pavers would retain a natural look vs. a ‘painted or stained look’. National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in the country with over 2 million square feet of pavers protected. We recognized a need to develop a coloring process for faded pavers. Fading of pavers is a fatal conclusion to the lack of continued sealing of pavers.
The goal was to RESTORE the pavers, or come as close as we could to a natural look. We wanted to avoid the STAINED or PAINTED look which would render an unnatural look, and an ongoing maintenance issue. For vehicular applications staining and painting tend to ‘lift’ with hot tires. Our dye penetrates the porous pavers.
For pavers with hues of various colors, the very small molecules in the dye combined with our customized application process will allow the various colors to still show.
