The Best Porcelain Paving Sealer and How to Use It4th April 2022
Porcelain paving is a fantastic choice for your next installation. You can expect a durable surface for your garden path or patio, and you can even lay your paving indoors in a garden room or conservatory too. Porcelain paving is constructed from a mix of kaolin, feldspar and quartz, before being baked at high temperatures between 1200 to 1550 degrees Celsius. This produces an appealing finish which is easy to maintain so long as you’re using the right solution.

Why use porcelain paving sealer?
Without sealing your porcelain paving, there’s a risk of your fresh installation becoming stained or damaged by external conditions. Anything from a spilt drink, oil stains from your garden tools or just general wear and tear can create unsightly patches on your paving. Throw in ice, snow and months of wind or rain, and you’re likely to attract dirt and other types of debris. Algae and moss can frequently form on top of your paving too. But all of this can be avoided when you use a porcelain paving sealer to protect your installation.

How to apply your porcelain paving sealer
To begin, make sure you have enough sealer to cover your area of porcelain paving. Resiblock Porcelain and Vitrified Paving Sealer is available in a 5-litre tin, and you can expect 1 litre to cover 8m2. This is a single coat solution.
Always check the weather before you begin as this will affect your application. Make sure you avoid using your sealer if rain, frost or high temperatures are forecast. Ideally, you should apply your sealer on a clear day between 5 and 30 degrees Celsius.
Before you begin application, make sure your porcelain paving has been thoroughly cleaned and that there’s no debris on the surface. If your paving installation is brand-new, wait a minimum of 6 weeks before sealing. When you’re ready, move the sealer into place using a roller or brush. Be careful not to let the sealer pool too much in a single area. You can always use a squeegee to soak up any excess. Leave it to dry and you can expect to walk on your paving within a few hours.
