The water base sealer for us was better than the solvent base sealer. Even though the solvent was satin it was too wet looking for what we wanted. The water base had a softer muted appearance.
Works great, looks great!
Easy application
Worked great. No problems or cloudy areas at all.
Easy application and good finish. It is slippery when wet.

How-To Guide

Acrylic Sealer Water-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: 
  • 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 at room temperature. Before applying, surface temperature must be above 60°F (16°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 12-24 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 12-24 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

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 warm soapy water to clean tools before the sealer has dried. Cured sealer can be removed with Soy Gel Stripper 
  • Add felt pads under furniture or heavy objects to avoid damaging finish 

 

Maintenance:  

 

  • Interior surfaces:  Protect finish every two years with Concrete Floor Wax or spot treat high-traffic areas as needed 
  • Exterior surfaces:  Protect finish every two years or as needed with Water-Based Acrylic Sealer
