Paving stone sealant products can be slippery if applied too thickly, leaving a slippery film on the surface. Avoid this situation by using fine sealants that penetrate deep into the surface and leave a very thin film on the surface. You can also use additives in the sealant itself to increase friction on the surface. It all depends on the type of sealant and the application technique used.
The right sealants and application techniques will leave no noticeable difference in the traction of your brick pavers. Your hard brick terrain will have about the same level of traction as a sealed driveway or parking lot. If you walk on your brick pavers in dry conditions, you won't find any difference in traction. However, if you use low-quality concrete sealants, the surface may become slippery.
Some sealants have a high solid content that fills the pores of the concrete. In that case, a solid layer forms on the surface of the pavement that becomes slippery when exposed to moisture. Another important factor that causes the slippery nature of the pavement is the application technique. Even if a good quality sealant is applied excessively, a continuous top layer will form that would become slippery when it gets wet.
Therefore, homeowners should choose experienced professionals who know the best concrete sealing techniques. The correct application technique would surely prevent the slippery nature of concrete. Consult experts specialized in concrete sealing who will inspect the hard surface on site and recommend the appropriate sealant that does not affect the traction level of the concrete. The hard terrain of your sealed paving stone will have the same level of traction as a sealed parking lot or driveway.
Experts specializing in brick pavers can analyze your hard terrain and recommend the right sealant, which will have little or no effect on the traction level of brick pavers. Sealing pavers creates an invisible barrier that protects them from aggressive elements, such as rain, sun and dirt in general.
