How to Determine if Concrete Was Sealed With A Solvent-Based or Water-Based Concrete Sealer

  1. Pour a small amount of Xylene on the sealer to be removed and wait 30 seconds
  2. Pat dry and touch the area
  3. If the surface becomes tacky or sticky then the concrete was sealed with a solvent-based sealer

Direct Colors EasyTint is a one-step color and sealer application that can be used indoors or out on smooth or textured concrete. High Gloss, Finish and Satin Sealers can be tinted to over 30 colors. Tinted sealer provides a solid, consistent coloration with some high and low-lights depending on concrete texture. Solvent-based tinted sealer can be sprayed or rolled. Water based tinted sealer should be rolled only for best results. Consider the level of gloss you’d prefer before you selecting a base sealer. Satin Gloss Sealers are a better choice for outdoor concrete because they are less of a slip hazard when wet. Always top coat tinted concrete sealer with a clear coat outdoors for better durability and more even wear over the life of the concrete. Clear sealer should be re-applied once every two years but if maintained properly, the tinted sealer underneath should not require re-application. Tinted Sealers applied indoors will be waxed for added protection and do not require a clear top coat.

Concrete Color Correction with EasyTint

Stephanie W. from Wisconsin did a color correction on a particularly ugly walkway and driveway edging, which they inherited from the former owners when they bought the house. Learn more about this project here
