Product Summary

Kota Black Limestone is made from Black Kadapha limestone paving with the inclusion of Pavestone Black Stone Sealer which is used to darken, fix and seal the stone. These black natural limestone paving slabs have a light riven surface with contemporary sawn edges, allowing them to be close jointed.

When freshly quarried, black limestone is a dark grey colour. However, the pigment in the stone is susceptible to ultraviolet light and will fade with exposure to sunlight (sun bleaching). This will create a mellow, soft light grey stone over time if the stone is left unprotected against UV light. However, by using the special black stone sealer, the black limestone pigment can be enhanced, with UV protection being impregnated into the stone, to lock-in the black limestone pigmentation against sun-bleaching / UV light exposure.

Product details

Black Limestone Rejuvenator

Kota Black in its natural form (Kadapha) will be a charcoal/anthracite/grey colour if left untreated, and this will lighten further when exposed to UV sunlight which bleaches the natural pigment in the limestone. To ensure the limestone retains its newly quarried darker tones, you need to seal it. Once the slabs have been laid, you simply give the slabs a thorough clean and then apply the included Black Stone Sealer to the slabs. This is extremely simple to do - just follow the instructions on the bottle - it's perfect for DIY/homeowners.

Once this has been applied, the paving slabs will turn black. Not only does this aesthetically give you a beautiful dark patio, but the sealer acts as a weather-proofing and protection agent, which means your patio will last and perform for many years longer than an untreated slab.

Durable, Hardwearing and Versatile

Limestone is very durable making it ideal for garden and patio paving projects. It is slightly permeable, but water absorption tends to be limited making limestone great for outdoor paving. Limestone offers flatter and smoother stone textures when compared to sandstone paving, with fewer ridges in its finish. Whilst being very durable and incredibly hard-wearing, actually, by masonry standards limestone is a “soft stone”, so it is easy to cut and lay - a property that makes this versatile material a go-to choice for many landscapers and builders.

Contemporary Style/Classic Style

Kota Limestone features sawn edges rather than traditional hand-cut edges. This means that this paving will complement classic and contemporary gardens alike, giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to creating your dream project. Its black/dark grey hues mean it also it compliments many different styles of gardens - therefore, it is extremely versatile.

Soft Riven Finish

Limestone is an attractive and very durable paving material which has a softer appearance than sandstone. Pavestone have dressed this paving with a variable soft riven finish. This means it feels more tactile and smoother underfoot, presenting an attractive surface on which to live when outside enjoying your patio or terrace.

Weathering/Colour Preservation

When enhanced with the included Black Stone Sealer, the paving will go black with a darker finish. This sealant has UV protection that will prevent the slab from fading due to sunlight exposure. The Black Stone Sealant, darkens the colour of the stones nearer to black whilst simultaneously adding UV protection, so your black limestone remains black.

Prevent Salt Staining

We recommend you use a Slurry Primer applied to the underside of the paving to prevent salt staining and other "blooming" from your base mortar.
