Answer: 
Hello Busymom3,
Thanks for your question. No, this highly durable stain is a standalone product so it doesn't need a separate sealer to go over it. If you'd like to add extra protection to the coating, though, there is the option to topcoat it with either our No. 985 Wet-Look Sealer or our No. 986 Low-Lustre Sealer.
Well wishes for your project!

Answer: 
I would seal just for a finished look. We used the low luster and it was really beautiful. I am not aware that you need the sealer to maintain color. The stain should have been absorbed as part of the natural materials in the concrete so it should keep it's color. The sealer just made it a bit richer.

I'm using Behr semi-transparent stain and wish to put a second and possibly a third coat on the surface. How long should I wait before I apply the additional coats?

Answer: 
Our stain soaked in/dried really quickly. I would guess 20 minutes should do it between coats. I ragged rolled my stain on so I am not sure how saturated your coating would be. Good Luck!

Answer: 
Hi Adpotate,
Thank you for using our Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain. You should wait at least 4 hours between coats. You must allow each coat to dry before applying an additional coat. Longer dry times are required in lower temperature or high humidity. Additional coats will provide a darker more uniform color.
Thank you for your inquiry.

Answer: 
Hi there adpotate,
There is a 4 hour dry time that should be given between coats, as well as between your final coat and your topcoat should you be using one.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Results! We followed another reviewers directions (BellaBee from 2013) and had a fantastic result! We tore the carpet up in our basement and rented a diamond blade sander to get all the adhesive off and then followed the same steps as BellaBee. It is KEY to do the proper steps for floor prep for this to turn out! After degreasin/cleaning then the etching/cleaning process I used a cotton tshirt to blot the first stain on which was Loden semi transparent. It dried quickly. Next color was Warm Shale. I grabbed another clean cotton cloth and patted it on at randaom. The last color was Chickory and I used it sparingly. We are thrilled with the floor. I ended up highlighting the cracks in our floor for interest. I let the stain in for 30 seconds and then dried brushed it. Fantastic! I also covered in two coats of Low Luster shine. We have received so many compliments on the high end look. May 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a durable surface This product is too soft to use on a floor. It scratches easily and chips off even when coated with its counterpart floor finish, Behr low luster sealer. The floor was scrubbed with TSP, rinsed three times and allowed to dry for a week before application. All directions were followed regarding dry times and use. We are now faced with sanding off the "stain" and re coating with a different product. August 4, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible product, worse ever I have used many behr products with excellent results. The use of this product however, resulted in 4 wasted labor days and 150$. The product was applied according to manufactures recommendations on 60 day old concrete, using recommended bonding agent, primer and sealer at the recommended temperature. After the first rain it failed completely and pealed. What a waste of time and money. To make things worse, I now have to strip the pad. Stay away from it. December 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Prep and Prime I've been a floor coating contractor for over 40 years. This product will perform as promoted, but you MUST follow all the directions re. prep and priming to avail yourself of the advertised properties. In addition I would recommend a clear coat for maximum splash and spill protections. I get the best results applying with an HVLP gun, and the results can be FANTASTIC!!! February 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Product We recently added a good number of sandstone colored landscaping blocks for a walkway in our backyard. We had an existing concrete entryway to the back door of the garage and some grey cement blocks in place. We went to the N. Spokane Home Depot paint department who recommended this stain. The associate mixed the proper color and I applied as directed. The results are nothing short of outstanding. The first coat did the job, however "just to be sure" I applied a second coat 3 days afterwards. This is a quality product that upholds my expectations of Behr. I highly recommend this stain for exacting coverage on concrete. September 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Semi transparent means semi opaque I was deciding betwwen paint and the concrete stain. This is not a typical concrete stain because it has white base in it like paint. I had an imperfect patio due to some carpet glue that was hard to remove. So i wanted something that would hide the imperfections. The concrete stain covered the imperfections well ( see pic). I also like that it is water based. For a true concrete stain you have to use acid stain and this is quite the process. The application directions for the behr stain could be better. I used the $20 sprayer from home depot which was no better than a spray bottle. It did not make a fine spray with either attachment. It sprayed more on the edges, creating 2 lines. You have to go over it with a roller or sponge. However you can see the roller lines. Next time i would save $20 and get a big sponge instead of sprayer. Make the first coat light and go over again with second coat. Other negative...the color swatch was completely off. The lady at home depot had to keep adding red to make the color match the swatch. We tested it in the store on a grey brick. Is this a new product for Behr? I think the machine for colors is programmed wrong as i see other people have complained about the same thing. I would call the final finish satin. I will likely get the shiny topcoat product to put over it. I did use the primer which is clear . May 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Older home needed refreshing We have an older home with plaster walls. We had put other paint on the walls and could not get an even flawless coat no matter how hard we tried. Over the summer we bought Behr all in one paint with primer included and we were amazed. One coat and we had beautiful color, and flawless even coats. I will never purchase another brand again. Thank you Behr you are amazing. September 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great finishing I have this as a semittransparent project and look great , dont forget to have the clear seal to have it protected September 22, 2015
