Information Regarding Pick Up
Can I pick up?
Perfect from start to finishBy: Bryce on 8 April 2019I am so glad I came across Sydney Solvents.!. I was able to get 5L of Xylene delivered to my door for less than 1/2 the price of 4L at Australia’s biggest hardware store. Unbelievable. The whole process was very professional, I was kept informed along the way and the product top quality. I can’t fault anything. I will definitely be looking here first next time I need anything.
Xylene for removing paver sealantBy: Keith Ward on 17 December 2018It was recommended to me to use Xylene to remove a penetrating paver sealant. I had extended a paved area and had to remove the previous sealer so I could apply new sealer across the whole area. The xylene worked well dissolving the previous sealer to enable the new sealer to penetrate into the old pavers. The lesson I did learn was to only apply it in the early morning while the pavers are cool. If applied during the day or in the evening the pavers retain the heat and the xylene evaporates too quickly before it can take effect. Second time worked a charm
Good Value XyleneBy: Neil on 30 August 2018I use Xylene for thining down concrete sealer and buying it through Sydney Solvents is an economical. Delivery is fast and efficient and I can’t fault the performance of the Xylene 5 Litre.
