Best Brick Paver Sealer Strippers
As of 2024, there have been some major updates with the different sealer stripper types for concrete available on the market. The main ingredient of a Paver Stripper, Methylene Chloride has now been banned for consumer use in the US. The good news is that there are other options that will work. The main difference is a longer dwell time to activate. About 45-60 minutes.

Paver Sealer Stripper How To Tips and Review
Tackling a large project like concrete or brick paver sealing can be stressful. When something goes wrong on a project that takes up a large area, something that would be a small problem suddenly turns into an overwhelming problem. Acrylic concrete and paver sealer projects can fail by using wet look sealers that dry unevenly. Sealers can become discolored by turning yellow or white due to over-application, cheap inferior acrylics, or moisture.
Stripping Brick Paver Sealer Turned White
A Concrete Paver Sealer Stripper is the only type of product on the market that can quickly and easily remove failed sealers from concrete or pavers without damaging the surface itself. It works on a multitude of different surfaces including acrylic, varnish, latex, lacquer, urethane, epoxy, and most types of filming coatings. To use it, first test a small area. Roll Sealer Stripper on concrete or pavers and allow for the area for 10 minutes. If the area is exterior, wash it with a pressure washer. If the area is indoors, use a scrub brush and flat blade to remove. Depending on the resilience of the sealer, your concrete or pavers may require multiple rounds of Paver Sealer Stripper application. Do not try to strip larger areas at a time. We recommend not exceeding 100 square feet at a time.
Please note that timing is crucial for using a Paver Sealer Stripper. Watch for the old coating to lift. If you try to remove it too soon, the sealer will remain bound to the concrete. It is equally important to remove Paver Stripper Sealer immediately after the film has lifted, as leaving it on the concrete or brick paver surface for too long will cause the coating to dry and re-seal.
