1st coat: Thin, clear liquid, quite splashy, very rapidly absorbed. Low odour

2nd coat: +2:00hrs. Rapid absorption again.


Of all the products tested, this one had the most definite visual impact. The stone looked treated straightaway following application and remained that way all through the test period.Very definite colour enhancement and a permanent 'damp' look - rich but not glossy.

The best performing colour enhancement by quite some way.

Stain Trials:

stain application
Application of stains
stain after 4 hrs
Stains after 4 hours
wash off stain
Wash off stain with proprietary cleaner after 24 hrs
apply mosskiller
Apply mosskiller after wash-off
stain after cleaning
Stain 48 hrs after washing-off mosskiller and cleaning with proprietary cleaner


Very faint traces of the engine oil and BBQ fat are visible, suggesting it's not as good as it would like to be at repelling greases, but the ink and wine have left no mark at all, nor has the tricky mosskiller.

If greases, fats and oils were wiped-up as soon as possible after spilling, they probably wouldn't mark at all, but leaving them to do their evil work for a full 24 hours is pushing the sealant to its limit.

Still, if you want definite enhancement *and* good stain protection, there's little real competition to this.

Note: Any apparent variation in colour of the flagstone is due solely to changes in the condition of the natural daylight at the time the photograph was taken.

Other than cropping to exclude extraneous background and adding a drop shadow to the cropped image, there has been NO post-processing of the original photographs.
