Vulcaseal 277
First Coat Application

Many of the other samples had a stage photograph taken one week after initial application. For complicated reasions involving lack of time, necessity to help with care of grandchildren, and general incompetence, this product was accidentally missed out.

1st coat: Buffy-cream liquid with smell of emulsion paint. Slight foaming and seems reluctant to penetrate. Dries invisible

2nd coat: + 1:37 hrs Good coverage and less foaming


A beguiling product that has produced visible results that exceeded expectation when the early stage photos were taken.

There is a small element of colour enhancement, and it has maintained that level right through the trial period. There's little, if any, sign of deterioration from start to finish.

A few very light touches of algae, predominatly along the edges, but these seem to have been given a start via those unprotected edges rather than establish themselves on the treated surface.

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


While the visual effect of this product really shows up when the paving is wet, it has to be said that stain protection is not its best feature.

All of the stains, and the mosskiller, are eminently visible and that means it can only be regarded as a fail.

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.
