Problem/sealer for brick patio

I used a petroleum based brick sealer last friday. The brick mason, who is a friend of mine gave me the sealer. The instructions stated that the outside temperature should be no lower than 40 degrees and that the bricks should be dry. I put on the sealer at a temp. of 50 degrees and it was about four days after a brief rain. The problem I have is that the sealer didnot dry in all areas. The overnight temperture dropped that night to below freezing. I need to know how to remove the sealer that is now tacky. I tried using a dryer called azborit. This helped alot but there is still sealer residue that I would like to remove. Thanks.

When finishes are applied too thickly, the surface dries and prevents the trapped material from curing. Some products will eventually cure, if the skinned over part is removed. Otherwise, it may be necessary to scrape off all the uncured material and remove any uncured residue with a chemical stripper appropriate for the product involved. Do the manufacturer's label and information sheets provide any guidance?

I don't know what azborit is. A google search returns no results. I would refer to the manufacturer's label on the container of azborit for guidance in the use of this product to stabilize or remove the sealer you have applied.

Hope this helps.

Chris thanks for the response. I mispelled Abzorbit. I did decided to wait until tomorrow to talk with tech service before I try to remove the sealer. I keep you posted.
