Hi My messy builders have left ivory tyrolean on the tarmac pavement Will this product paint over and disguise this?
Yes, we think this should be OK. First be sure to thoroughly wash and clean the area (preferably by pressure washer) to remove as much of the staining as possible. Then ensure any remnants are completely dry and cured and unable to be removed. Test a small area first to ensure no adverse reactions, if OK apply 1-2 coats as required.
I'm trying to get rid of diesel spillage stains from my drive due to a fuel tank breakage would your ash felt restorer do this job? Thanks for your help.
Contamination such as fuel spillages, oils, greases, etc. must be completely removed from surfaces needing to be painted with Rust-Oleum 5478 Asphalt Restorer. If this can be achieved then it should hide any visible discolouration, marks etc. left on the driveway surface to provide a uniform, solid coloured finish. We would however recommend a test area be carried out over the affected areas to ensure full obliteration can be achieved and no reaction occurs with the areas in question due to insufficient cleaning.
