In this updated article, we tell you the best way to add a non-slip component to paver sealers to make your surfaces safe. If you have any suggestions for the best way to add a non-slip additive to paver sealers or have any questions, please comment below.
Some paver sealers can create a “slippery when wet” scenario. This is more evident with the high gloss or wet look type of paver sealers. You can create more traction to a sealer by adding a non-slip additive to the paver sealer before it is applied. The non-slip additive is mixed into the sealer prior to the application.
Non-slip additives like Super Grip will only work with sealers that leave a film on the paver surface to enhance the appearance. It works best when it is mixed in and applied with the second coat. It will not work with a single coat on surfaces that have not been previously sealed. Non-slip additives will not work with sealers that penetrate into the paver surface and do not alter the appearance.
