Worked great, with the antiques stain it helped me to revive a paver patio I thought was lost!
The driveway looks 20 years younger.
Nice product.wear a mask when useing the sealer. End result turned out very nice overall I'm satisfied
As expected. Easy to apply.
The product is very nice but the finished look is more like a satin finish than a glossy finish. Still nice
Easy to apply, great results. Not as glossy as I would have expected. Appears more like a satin finish.
Had some minor bubbling, was not able to only spray it on with recommended sprayer. Needed to back roll entire project for a decent finish, but not perfect. Followed directions to a T. It looks okay, but not sure how long it will last with the bubbling that occurred. Probably wouldn’t recommend.

How-To Guide

Acrylic Sealer Solvent-Based How-To Guide 

 

Step 1: Surface Preparation 
 

  • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth 
  • Newly poured concrete must cure for 30 days prior to application 
  • For existing concrete: 
    • Remove paint or previously applied sealer using Soy Gel Stripper 
    • Remove carpet glue or other adhesives using Bean-e-doo Mastic Remover 
    • Remove oils, dirt, or debris using Scrub Brush and Concrete Cleaner & Degreaser. Also use this after applying stripper or mastic remover 
  • Verify absorption by pouring a cup of water in various areas. If not absorbed within 5 minutes, etch the surface with Hard Troweled Floor Pre-Treatment 
  • Allow the concrete to thoroughly dry before Application 

 

Step 2: Application 

 

Coverage rate is approximately 200 square feet per gallon, when applying two thin coats. Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, porosity, and application method. 

 

NOTE:  Store Sealer at room temperature. Before applying, surface temperature must be above 40°F (4°C) but not over 95°F (35°C). 

 

Option 1: Spraying (preferred method) 

  • Remove filters from Pump-Up Sprayer 
  • With Pump-USprayer begin at a far corner, spraying a single thin coat in slightly circular motions 
  • After 6-12 hours apply second coat: 
    • First, use a thumbnail to see if the initial coat dents or scratches; if so, allow more time to dry (cure) 
  • Apply the second coat in the same manner as described above 
  • Cure for at least 24 hours before allowing foot traffic or placing furniture 

 

Option 2: Rolling 

  • Pour into Paint Tray 
  • Use a 3/8" Nap Roller to apply your first coat in a north-south direction 
  • Do not apply pressure to the roller — this can cause streaking. Let the roller's weight do the work 
  • After 6-12 hours apply second coat: 
    • First, use a thumbnail to see if the initial coat dents or scratches; if so, allow more time to dry (cure) 
  • Apply the second coat in the same manner as described above, except in an east-west direction 
  • Cure for at least 24 hours before allowing foot traffic or placing furniture 


Step 3: Seal & Protect Finish  

 

  • Interior surfaces: Concrete Floor Wax 
  • Exterior surfaces: Solvent-Based Acrylic Sealer 

 

Tools & Supplies:

  • Pump-up Sprayer(s) 
  • 9 Inch Roller Frame, 2 Covers & Paint Tray (if Rolling) 

 

Pro Tips: 

 

  • When Hard Troweled Floor Pre-Treatment is applied, wear spiked shoes to prevent permanent footprints 
  • If sealer puddlesimmediately back roll with a 3/8" nap roller (soak in sealer and wring out excess) 
  • Use Xylene to clean tools 
  • Add felt pads under furniture or heavy objects to avoid damaging finish
