Tools you will need to complete this task

  • 1 x 10 litre plastic watering can.
  • 1 x plastic measuring cup that holds at least 250ml.
  • 1 x long Handle broom.
  • 1 x garden hose with trigger spray or waterblaster.
  • 1 x paint tray and roller.
  • 1 x bottle of Premier Acid Wash



Once pavers have been laid and grouted, prepare the surface by applying a mild acid wash. This is done by pouring 250ml of Premier acid wash into a watering can and filling with water. (40: 1 dilution).


Pour the solution evenly onto the pavers and scrub. Each 10 litres of acidic solution should cover 6 – 10 sqm of pavement. While scrubbing you should notice loose surface dust coming off the pavers.

Note: Uneven application of the solution may result in a streaky finish.


Thoroughly rinse the solution off, be sure to remove all sediment and chemical. This can be achieved with a squeegy or a light water blast.


Wait for the surface to dry and roll 2 coats of Premier Stone and Concrete Sealer. Roll the first coat in a “north/south” direction and the second coat in an “east/west” direction

Important Notes:

  • If you have solvent resistant sprayer, then spraying is also possible.
  • It is important to seal on a fine day with air temperature at least 10 degrees C.
  • Do not seal if rain is imminent within 2-3 hours.
  • Touch dry in 1 hour, completely dry in 4 hours.

Helpful Tips:

  • Always wear protective gear. Gloves, Mask, Eye wear etc, when handling chemicals.
  • Allow 30mins between coats. 2 coats of sealer is sufficient, however more coats will enhance oxide colours and aggregates.
  • If you are at all unsure consult your local contracting Professional.
  • Touch dry in 1 hour, completely dry in 4 hours.
