Hi Catherine,
Thanks for your interest in our Behr Premium Low Lustre Sealer. This product is designed as a low gloss sealer. It is not meant to provide the look of a wet surface. If you are looking for a product that will give your stain the look of a surface when brushed with water may we suggest our Behr Premium No. 985 Wet Look Sealer. This high-gloss formula can also be used on pavers, artificial stone and stucco, and it also makes a great topcoat over paints and stains. We recommend using a high quality pump sprayer to help achieve a high gloss finish. A pump sprayer will help in avoiding lap marks and over application. If spraying, the product can be back rolled for a more uniform thickness (however keep a wet edge to help avoid lap marks). Please follow all label instructions. Good luck on your project! Read Less

Answer: 
This product will give the look of a slightly wet surface. A good way to see how it will enhance the appearance is to wet the surface with water. As the product seals it deepens the color slightly and brightens the overall appearance.

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?”

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".

Answer: 
Hello matt,
Thanks for your question. Yes, it can be used on masonry or concrete surfaces. Please be sure to follow all label instructions for the proper prep and application. Also, bear in mind that due to possibly dirtying of the coating from the soot, periodic cleaning with a concrete cleaner/degreaser may be needed.
Well wishes for your project!

Answer: 
The Product can be cleaned with a pressure washer. You will need to keep the sprayer as close to the brick as you can and you will need to make sure you get every part of the brick. If you don't you will notice the white stain. It will take along time to do a whole patio. I suggest applying it to a small section only. I did a 2' x 6' section.

Newly applied product will be fairly difficult to remove with a pressure washer alone. However Behr sells the Concrete Paint Stripper, usually found next to this product, which should work.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
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 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 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 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
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This product is horrible and ruined my new patio! I followed the instructions to the letter. The patio was dry for at least four days prior, I applied it when there was no direct sunlight, the temperatures were in the recommended range and I used a roller with the recommended knapp depth. My $3000 patio looks horrible with white patches and streaks all over it and appears to be ruined. I wish I had read the customer reviews prior to application. I spent four hours cleaning (one week prior), blowing off any debris, and applying this product. This was back breaking work and the sealer cost me over $60. In my opinion this has either ruined my patio or will cost me a lot of extra money to correct. I see where Behr recommends that if this happens you should purchase their stripper and start over. WHAT! Spend more money on products to correct the problems already caused by a faulty product. This product should be removed from the market. It looks like I may need to spend hundreds of dollars now to hire a contractor to correct this mess! The patio now looks horrible!!!!! July 6, 2014
