We're an exterior cleaning company with a high demand for cleaning Efflorescance, calcium, etc., from decorative pavers. Could we use a fine media to remove the scale without damaging the material?

Thanks

Question 4     January 25, 2012

Subject:  sealing pavers around a pool

We are thinking about sealing our pavers around pool deck. Need to find out what product to use that will be heat resistant and not be slippery for our kids?

.......................

For around pool decks, I would recommend a penetrating sealer that is specifically developed for concrete pavers. Do not use anything that is film forming or listed as “multi-Purpose Concrete Sealer). Contact a concrete paver manufacturer for a recommended product. There are penetrating sealers at select local locations.

Visit this web site to find a location near you http://www.oldcastlecoastal.com Be sure you have the pool deck clean and thoroughly dry before applying the sealer. And do not apply the sealer if the temperature goes below 65 degrees.

In my experience flagstone may delaminate due to water penetration during the freeze/thaw cycle that we experience. Are there any penetrating sealers such a silane/siloxane or a different recommendation that can minimize or block water penetration for this application. If it is a topical sealer they tend to be slippery and create a falling hazard. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks
