Hi Martina,
Thanks for writing in! It's safe to use the Low Lustre Sealer on the fireplace, as long as the surface won't get too hot to touch. Good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

Answer: 
Hello GK,
Thanks for your question! We've actually found that this sealer can be applied to garage floors and over our concrete stains and paints to offer extra protection. This sealer is made to be able to stand up to vehicle traffic (please park on cardboard for two weeks following application). Please be sure to follow all label instructions for best results.
Well wishes for your project!

Answer: 
Not if you're going to drive/park cars in your garage. Hot tire pick-up will ruin your floor in days. Garage floors used for vehicles require much heavier duty stains and sealers/clears. I would only recommend using Eagle One Acid Stain and Clear Gloss on garage floors (I have done two high-end garages that way for clients). After a year the clear is still holding up, even in freezing climates.

Answer: 
Same problem,... applied what we thought was a thin coat and white streaks as well as a white haze over top..... our new patio we love now looks terrible. How long before this "wears" off? How else can this be removed? So disappointing, will not be buying this product and will tell others the same.

Answer: 
Milky appearance is due to the product being applied to thick or poor surface prep. Removal is the only remedy, or let it wear off, which could be years.

I applied a coat of water-based sealer early Sunday morning and waited four hours before applying the second coat. Unfortunately, by that time, portions of the patio in the sun must have been too hot and the sealer has stayed a milky white (though those portions in the shady look terrific.) Any advice as to what I might do to get rid of the “milky bits?”

Answer: 
Milky appearance means the product was applied too thick or pooled, not because it was applied to a hot surface. The only remedy is to remove it or let it wear off.

Hi Guy, Thanks for using our Behr Premium Low-Lustre Sealer. We are sorry to hear about your situation. Try using a water-base sealer remover/stripper available at Home Depot. Use a small amount on a light abrasive brush/pad to scuff sand off the "milky bits".

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great for me! I don't get all the reviews I'm reading. I moved into a 8 year old house in 2014 and the pressed concrete patio looked like it never had any maintenance. The grey stain was gone except the edge and had zero coating. I bought the Behr low-lustre without any reviews-just looked like what I wanted and Behr name recognition. I applied it with a roller. It is milky in cracks but it goes away-you can help it along by daubing out the pools with a brush or rag. TWO YEARS later-still looks good. Since then I added on to the patio with UniLock pavers in grey and tan. After reading the reviews I took the leftover sealer and tested it-works fine. Maybe people are putting it on too thick? I'm going to buy some more today. August 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leaves MILKY Coating DO NOT BUY! I unfortunately did not read any reviews beforehand. Big mistake. It really is not worth trying this product. I stained my concrete wall outside, waited the prescribed 24hrs and applied the sealer (both Behr products). I used a roller as suggested some areas were sort of clear and some were very milky after 3 hours. I'm going to wait 24hrs and see what happens. But I really do not expect any difference. I'm going to contact the support line on Monday when they are open to see what options i have. I hope stripping isn't the only option as that will not work for me for sure. I'm wondering if a coat of high-gloss will help but doubt. I would not recommend using this product AT ALL unless you can live with or desire a milky, spotty look. It is too risky!!!! May 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Milky appearance when wet I used a sprayer to install this sealer, while my wife mitigated the pooling. We have a stamped concrete patio with many ridges and uneven textures, so water and other liquids tend to puddle. The application process was easy for me (I am a novice at this sort of thing). The product is milky-white initially, but that color did not last as it dried, and it looked nice afterward. After two applications, it produced a slight sheen though it did not discolor the concrete. This morning--two days after the initial application--it rained which gave the concrete a milky appearance. For us, this is a minimal issue, since we rarely use the patio except on sunny days, but if you intend to use the sealed area while it is wet (e.g., on concrete surrounding a pool), then you might want to select another sealer. The product was installed July 2016, so we have no idea yet when the concrete will require re-sealing. July 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beware- Slippery when wet Used on 20 yr old concrete pool deck that was never painted or stained. Deck has only been power washed annually. I was concerned about traction so I mixed in Behr non-skid floor additive. Rained day after I put it down and deck became very slippery. Cannot imagine how slick it would have been without the additive. Will now have to research remedies to help avoid injuries when grandkids are getting out of pool. As for appearance, this product left the deck with noticeable color variations. Looks as if it penetrated differently in different areas. That said, it is possible (likely) that much of the coloration difference is just due to the age and wear of the concrete surface. Can't fault the product for that. Behr should, however, identify the potential for traction issues on their product label. Definitely not a good choice for a pool deck. June 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Milky finish !!! I would not recommend this product! I have spots that dried to a milky finish! Grr. I wish that I had read those reviews before I purchased and used this product. Now I guess I have to put the toothpaste back in the tube and find a solution! Ugh June 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My "Go-To" Landscping Sealant This semi-gloss waterproofing sealant is great for outdoor hardscapes and stones. I have used this on manufactured stone facades, pavers, natural stone walkways, stone porches, and river rock. It brings out the color in the substrate and the semi-gloss finish gives it a clean look. I apply this with a hudson sprayer. It goes on with a milky/purplish tint and dries clear. It is best to mist a very light first coat, let dry, then apply a wet (but not runny or puddling) second coat. If you get puddling or runs, use a chip brush to distribute the sealant more evenly in those areas or back-roll larger flat areas. Make sure your substrate is clean and dry first. I've found this to last years outdoors with no peeling or fogging. April 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disaster I had the same problem with white patches on an interior application of this product. Did anyone successfully fix this problem? Power washing is not an option. Help, I'm about to be sued by the client. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware! I have nothing positive to say about this product. My reason is...I read a lot of reviews. Prep work was described as being the most important part before applying this product. I focussed on cleaning the patio properly. I pressure washed completely two different days. I used the leaf blower to make sure nothing loose on the patio. I then applied to a small section. Thank god it was just a small section. 2' x 6'. I let it dry. I did everything I was suppose to do. It just applied a white coat on the brick. Took away from the color. Low Luster not. A white luster. Not clear after it dried. It was a pain to take out and left white stains on the patio. Look at pictures. Gonna try using the wet look sealer. August 21, 2013
