The film never went away. I ended up having to pay to have the brick sandblasted. Luckily Behr reimbursed the cost of the stain and the sandblasting. Unfortunately there are still areas with the milky stain, that was missed during the sandblasting. Do you have any bricks that weren't stained? I was able to submit photos of bricks with stain and without, to show the difference. Best of luck to you.

This why you do not buy paint at a big box store as you are on your own. As most of the time you can't find help and you pick up what you think is right and go to the check out and pay for it.

I'm in the Surface Restoration business and do a lot of sealer removal on stamped concrete and pavers.

What you need to do is look for someone in your area that has a Farrow System 185 surface restoration machine.

It's a process that's very similar to Sandblasting or Soda Blasting, but without all the mess and it's safe on almost all surfaces because it's low pressure (55 psi)

It also very GREEN and uses no chemicals... just air, water and a mineral called Olivine which is the secret ingredient.

Here's a YouTube video of a project we recently on limestone:

Our company is in New Jersey and services Eastern PA, DE, NJ, CT and Souther NY and Long Island.

I'm having a similar situation with my mexican pavers. The sealer went on clear but have TURNED milky white over the last 72 hours. Some stones have three colors now: milky white, dark red, and the natural original color. I'm afraid that some moisture was trapped under the sealer. This is an indoor floor, but it was raining the day before the sealer was applied. Parts of the house are fine because the cleaning was done first there. The contractor is coming to take a look but I'm going to be literally living in the dog house if it has to be stripped/sealed again. Any ideas on what to do?

Used Behr wet look sealer on my pavers and didn't like it. Switched half way through the job and used a product with Xylene. Looks great. I called Behr and since my pavers are colered, he said the Behr stripper would be too strong. He suggested using a soy based cleaner to remove the Behr wet look sealer which is acrylic based. We'll see....
