Thought the slate was dry, don't have a water meter.  Do you think the sealer will dry with time, or should we use a stripper to remove it tomorrow and wait several days and then reseal?  Think it will come off with degreaser/stripper, or will we need to use floor machine with black pads and stripper to remove?

Sounds like the floor was still wet when you sealed it?  Do you have water meter to see if the floor is wet?

Subject: [sccpartners] Sticky Slate After Color Enhancing Sealer


Received call from the homeowner stating the floor seems sticky 24 hours after application of the sealer.  Put a light coat of color enhancing solvent based impregnating sealer on black slate after 2 days of stripping acrylic wax.  We used black pads and bare bones stripper to finally get off the wax.  Going back in the AM, any suggestions if sealer still sticky?
