Is It Possible to Get a High Gloss Finish on Pavers?

In short, yes it is possible, but not always during the first application. Pavers are very porous and will absorb any liquid applied to the surface. In order to prevent sealers from penetrating deep into the pavers, resin needs to form within the pores that will force the acrylic to remain closer to the surface. The best way to do this is to apply at least two coats, and allow each coat to cure before applying another coat. Water based acrylic sealers like the Armor WB25 should be recoated between 4-24 hours, and solvent based acrylic sealers like the Armor AR500 should be recoated after 24 hours. While some pavers can achieve a high gloss finish with two coats, some pavers may require a third coat.

If it is your first time sealing the pavers, it will take more material to achieve a high gloss. Once the pavers have been sealed and a solid resin base has formed, recoating will require less material to achieve and maintain a gloss finish. The best way to determine what a sealer will look like on your pavers is to apply the sealer to a test area. This will help to not only determine what the pavers will look like once sealed, but also help to determine how many coats will be required to achieve the desired finish.
