That time of year has arrived when we start thinking about Barbeques and outside entertaining – Join the rest of the house by giving your patio a spring spruce up with ‘Indian Sandstone Sealer’ ISS®, to bring back the original colours and protect from this years antics!
By using the right products it will help you to protect both your valuable interior and exterior assets such as Indian Sand Stone, York Stone, Block Paving and similar natural stone related surfaces. This should be part of your the spring clean routine, ready to head in to summer, enjoying your natural surfaces as the sun shines with a safe non-flammable sealer. A jet wash or soapy wash will not get the job done before sealing.
Natural Indian Sandstone is an extremely porous surface and can absorb liquids like a sponge if not sealed. WISEMAN Indian Sandstone Sealer ‘ISS” protects from major culprits including, staining of drinks party spillages, cooking oils from Barbequing and any associated food stains, from dropped sausages, burgers, mayonnaise from and any associated food stains.
The daily battering stone surfaces experience from every day life means it needs to be prepared from excess wear and ingress of the culprits that seep in both internally and externally. There are the obvious ones, but frequently forgotten are any body maintenance products such as make-up, body cream, suntan lotion as well as our beloved furry wet and dirty friends.
Making sure any product is safe and has longevity is why WISEMAN have spent significant time researching and producing its market leading product ISS®. Additional and valued benefits include, inhibiting both dirt, staining and lichen growth, things that take considerable time to remove and part of the crucial preparation process. This is as important on interior feature walls, floor stone, which experience an extreme level of ‘wear and tear’ from daily family life, to keeping stone and brick hearths looking and retaining their beauty with a non-flammable product.
For anyone using products of this nature, they are looking for ease of application, speed of drying and obviously being able to re-use tools, ideal if you are conscious of cost and the recycling of your brushes and rollers. ISS® is applied with a brush or roller, which then can be cleaned with soapy water.
Harvey Wiseman, CEO & Managing Director; “As industrial chemists for 50 years, we are always looking to find and produce products that provide solutions for the building industry. Our Indian Sand Stone Sealer (ISS®) is one that also comfortably sits as retail ‘off the shelf ‘offering. It is ideal for use around Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs, Terraces and Parking areas where natural stone is laid. As well as being a safe product when you have children and animals, it has a quick drying time of only a 2 hours and doubles up as either a matt or gloss finish.”
Prior to sealing, the surface looking to be treated must be clean, dry and free from any oil, grease, or other coatings. Like shampoo and conditioner, for best results the cleaning should be done with products that have being developed alongside one another. For this we offer the sister pre-cleaning product, BRICKIE®, to ensure maximum effect and longevity of the application.
