Paver Sealer Turned WhiteBrick Paver Sealer Remover and Stripping Instructions

Brick pavers can make beautiful exterior surfaces from driveways and sidewalks to patios and landscape walls. Sealing brick pavers can enhance their natural beauty and provide lasting protection from Mother Nature.

There are many types of brick paver sealers. Water based, oil based, and acrylic sealers are just a few examples. They can come in many finishes from matte to a glossy “wet look.” No brick paver sealer will last forever so maintenance becomes a necessity.

When an old brick paver sealer simply wears off and fades away the surface can be cleaned and refinished with a new brick paver sealer. But sometimes brick paver sealers can fail prematurely. This happens for several reasons.


Over application is a common occurrence. This causes the brick paver sealer to turn white or yellow as it becomes an eyesore. A cheap or inferior paver sealer may also fail before you expect it to. Moisture is also an enemy of a brick paver sealer and can cause a sealer to fail.

When a brick paver sealer fails it is necessary to remove it before you can reapply and a new coat of paver sealer. SuperSeal Brick Paver Sealer Remover is the only product on the market that will remove most acrylic “wet look” brick paver sealers.

2. Let the sealer remover dwell on the failed paver sealer for 15-20 minutes.

3. Pressure wash the brick paver surface. Reapply to stubborn areas as needed.

Brick paver sealer remover coverage rates can vary depending on the sealer being removed. Check the coverage rates for the product you use. Always follow the manufacturers instructions and wear protective gear when handling.

    More then likley yes. Might want to clean and do one test spot with the new sealer to make sure it dries correctly after 24 hours. Look at the Super Seal 25 Paver Sealer.

    I would not say it has discolored and it has not turned white. The main reason I am asking is because the pavers just look dull and not anywhere near what they looked like three years ago. Water seems to immediately soak in as soon as I apply it to most areas. Does this mean I can just clean the deck without needing to strip it?

    Has the SB-1300 discolored or failed by peeling, turning white, etc? If you spill water on the pavers, does it bead or soak in shortly?

    3 years ago when I had my patio installed using Belgard pavers. At the advice of a friend I sealed the pavers using Surebond 1300 Joint Stabilizing sealer (water based). My deck is now looking dull and has lost all of its original color vibrance. Do I need to use a sealer remover prior to using a new sealer? I would like to try a "wet look" sealer this time to bring back some of the pavers original look.

    Depends on what type of sealer it is. This sealer will remove both water and solvent based sealers that are acrylic.

    Does this product work on water based sealants that are around a month old
