Customer Questions & Answers

Does the low luster sealer enhance the color of the stained concrete, when used on floors, etc.? The stain, now dry, look dull and flat.

We've been told that the sealer will enhance the color and give it a look similar to the way it looks when brushed with water.
Asked by: Catherine
Yes, a clear coat deepens colors. To see what your stained floor would look like with clear, wet a small area. You'll see how the color deepens.

Ihow do you get the white milky look out of my concrete I applied it according to diretions. it looks really bad

Asked by: snuffy
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.

Milky finish

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?”
Asked by: Guy
Not a great product for old concrete that does not have uniform porosity. Left my old concrete looking more blotchy and uneven than it looked prior to using it. Areas that absorbed less had more luster and a slight milky appearance relative to areas that seemed to absorb more product. Even multiple coats did not produce an even finish. A flat penetrating sealer may have been a better option for protecting my older concrete.

Customer Reviews

1 gal. Low-Lustre Sealer is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to use, Directions are vague. I have used Behr semi transparent stain for concrete for several years with good results. This time I decided to add a sealer low lustre to it. This product is not user friendly. The directions say to add a thin coat but, that is a matter of interpretation I added what I considered to be a thin coat and it looked great till it rained. . It turned white & sudsy looking. I wish I would have stuck with the paint and skipped the sealer. I suggest if you chose to use this product put a micro amount down first in a small area and test the process. After drying wet it to see if the distribution is correct and there is no discoloration. Then proceed. Directions are not clear and in general terms. Good luck.

Used this product because the Sakrete product was not available in my local store. Did not read the reviews beforehand. Used the product on a newly installed paver patio and walkway on a commercial site. The product does have a milky appearance when applied. Used a hand pump sprayer to apply two coats. Product covered up minor scratches on the surface and enhanced the color of the pavers. Dried clear. Will come back to update review to report how the material stands up to weather and foot traffic.

I read the reviews after using this product and have some advice for others who want to use this on new, unsealed, interior concrete floors. We used a telescoping/extendable roller brush to apply two coats on two consecutive days. The first coat will establish any lines or patterns in your application. This is important to note because in any place where your application overlaps, it will be obvious once dry. And a second application will not even it out. Our first application was in shorter 4-5 foot pieces, rolling forward and back (similar to how you would vacuum). On our second application, we rolled one continuous line, from one side of the room to the other, which we hoped would give a more uniform appearance with fewer overlaps. I wish we had used this technique for the first application. Others have commented on the milky appearance. We did not have this issue. We made sure the concrete was completely clean and dry (sweeping twice, vacuuming twice and mopping twice), then allowed it to dry a full 24 hours. We also made sure to roll out any places that appeared to have a thicker application. All in all, it looks okay. Foot traffic, rugs and furniture will lessen any obvious sealer overlaps, and doing it ourselves saved us nearly $4,000. Once dried, the first coat was very slick. The second gave it a little more traction. Also... get a Pro account and you'll saved approximately $6 per gallon.

Key is to use it sparingly, mop off excess in the cracks. Make sure prior sealer was also water based, to avoid whitening.( Do a patch test before. I don't think this will work on rough stone or pavers, since the solution will seep in and "whiten"). I used a broad microfiber mop, and wiped off the excess also with a microfiber cloth. Was very easy. First layer dried a bit dull, second layer, which I applied 2 hours later dried with a slight sheen as mentioned on the product. Very happy with it, my pool patio looks great. I was a bit worried by all the negative reviews.

I bought this product on the advice of the salesperson in thepaint department, and wish I had read the reviews first. This is quite possibly the worst product of its kind. I followed the directions, scrubbed then even pressure washed the cement in advance. I waited till it dried, then applied with a roller on the horizontal surfaces, and brushed on the vertical. I recoated as per the directions, and left for 24 hours. I am still waiting for it to dry. Each time it rains, the "sealer" turns milky white and washes even further away. As the area "sealed" in the entry way into the house, it gets tracked inside as well. Useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product if you don't glop it on We have a Chicago apartment built in 1918. There's an interior sunroom that has a poured concrete floor tinted red and stamped to look like tile. It was painted many times over the last 100 years. We used Smart Strip to strip off the paint, then rented a floor scrubber to sand off the remaining paint that the concrete had absorbed and that the stripper couldn't get at. Big rinse with clear water, and two days later (dry time in humid summer weather) we were ready to coat with this product. I read all of the reviews here and so was aware of the problems people were encountering. We had no issues with this product at all. We brushed it on -- had to because we needed to work it into the faux grout lines. We did a thin coat so that the product looked wet, but not white, as we moved along. It dried quickly and we are very pleased with the outcome. We are thinking we'll stop here at one coat because the finish is so nice on your feet, and the light playing on it is very warm and inviting. We love how the floor now looks and feels! We bought a gallon - only size available - and we used maybe 2 cups of it on our 9'x8' floor. So - go with a thin coat and build up with thin coats and you shouldn't have the milky nightmare some of run into. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!!!!

I used this product on my new concrete countertops and after two coats it looks great, but it really doesn't seal. Water, oil, and coffee go right through and stain the concrete. They're suggestion was to keep applying more coats with no guarantees. I'm at a loss right now and fear that I'll have to strip or sand this product off. I'm so disappointed this was suggested by Home Depot employees from the paint department.
