Sika has improved its sealant range even further with the introduction of its solvent free concrete block paving sealer, Sika Resiblock Superior.
As one of the first manufacturers to opt for a solvent free product range,
Sika has recently launched its new, solvent free version of Resiblock Superior. Just like its predecessor, the new solvent free version is still available in two finishes – gloss and matt (or natural finish) and two sizes – 5L and 25L.
It also offers the same ‘no oil stains’ guarantee associated with the original version, offering long-term peace of mind too.
Being solvent free and therefore odourless and without VOCs, Resiblock Superior – Solvent Free offers the same great benefits as the original version and is just as hard wearing and durable.
Similarly, it offers great weather resistance which can help extend the life expectancy of the paving.
Once cured, it also enhances the look of the paving, be it old or new, delivering an enriched, long-lasting colour in either a matt or gloss finish to suit the paving project.
It also offers protection against oil, diesel and food staining and can also prevent against weeds, grasses and ants nests, which can impair the integrity of the surface.
Resiblock Superior – Solvent Free can be applied in six easy steps; firstly, coat the perimeter of the area using a paintbrush, working it well into the joints.
Secondly, apply the first coat with a Resi-roller, working away from the building, applying in one metre bands, across the width of the drive.
When the edge is met, return to the other side of the drive to start the next band to keep the ‘wet edge’ going.
Once applied, leave for a minimum of three hours and a maximum of 24 hours before applying the second coat. Finally, apply the second coat at a right angle to the first.
Jayne Hasoon, Product Manager from Sika said: “I am proud that Sika is one of the first manufacturers to bring a solvent free product of this nature to market.
As regulations become more and more environmentally focused, we are constantly being pushed to find alternatives to current products.
As Resiblock Superior is one of the leading paving sealers, we wanted to develop a product that was at the forefront of the solvent free alternatives available.
Coinciding with the 20-year anniversary of the Resiblock brand, we have worked hard to refresh the overall packaging design, bringing the brand and product itself up to date. It can’t fail to catch the eye on the shelf now!”
