I installed this product on stamped concrete strictly in accordance with the instructions on the bottle and it left large milky white patches all over the area covered. It looks horrible and my whole terrace has been ruined! I've has estimates from $1,000 to $1,800 to remove the white coating, and then I will have to start over to resell everything. Behr won't do anything.

We have used the water based Behr 98501 Wet Look sealer for over 15 years, applying a fresh coat with sponge every year. No white steaks, works perfectly for us ... Love that Wet Look!!!
As an added tip never apply the Wet Look Sealer directly to stone or tile, always start by using a penetrating sealer first, then the Wet Look. If you can read ... yes the instructions do tell you this, I suspect this is where people are running into issues. We used the Behr 98001, confusingly they call it a Protector and Waterproofer, but actually it is a water based penetrating sealer. Initially it took the entire gallon of the 98001 to seal 160 square feet, the slate sucked it up like a straw. After that we applied 4 "light coats" of the 98501. As long as you add a fresh coat or 2 of the Wet Look every year, you never need to use the penetrating sealer ever again.
We are on our 3rd gallon of Behr Wet Look after 15 years, only issue is our slate was very slippery when wet. Solution was to add some Seal-Krete Clear Grip, just the right amount of anti-skid and its totally transparent.
3 great products ... if used as advertised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PugbullyMom pavers and paper floors, oh my!
I used this 3 years ago for my hand made pavers (about 1200 of them) which have been out back in full sun ever since. My latest project has been paper bag (brown torn paper) flooring over an existing concrete covered porch . so far so good with 4, yes 4 coats. I changed my initial application and found pouring it directly on to the floor and smoothing it out with a foam pad-like tool to coat the entire surface worked much better than other methods that I had tried. We are getting ready to do concrete floors inside but I must admit I'm a little nervous to use this on such a large project after reading the other reviews, that being said I think for smaller projects this stuff works great. Don't forget to do a test patch on your project first as well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed Second Coat was chaulky in places
I had my patio looking great! Then I thought to put the second coat on after waiting 4 hours 80 degree weather too... It has chaulky lines where I rolled it in places and chaulky in other places!!!! So disappointed don't know how to fix this this!!!! It was so much work up to the point of putting the sealer on and having it turn out like that! I even tried scrubbing the lines off and didn't come up!

I wish I would of read the reviews before purchasing. This is the worst Behr product I have ever used. I started by rolling half of my colored patio and it turned milky white. I sprayed the other half with a pump sprayer and it made absolutely no difference, could not even tell it was sealed after two coats. This product is a waste of time and money. I have to strip the whole patio now and start over.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vince Had a bit of good luck......
I waited on weather conditions to be ideal, & followed the directions to the letter.... Except for one.
Based on the overwhelming number of reviews complaining about a milky appearance I decided that waiting 4 hours between coats was a mistake. So I sprayed & had my wife backroll simultaneously, applying all the product we had on hand. We did a light coat 1st, then a medium coat., I've been using wood and concrete stains and sealers for decades. Very few sealers advise to wait that long between coats. Once the top layer of a sealer dries the subsequent applications don't take because the porousity has been sealed by the dried 1st coat. So far my concrete looks good, really good, so I will wait and see how it ages.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SD Indoor Saltillo tile
Bought this product after stripping old wax off my 80 yr old indoor Saltillo tile. Wanted to darken it a bit and seal it with a satin glaze finish. I applied brown tile stain to my tiles and then sealed with this product. I read that it isn't as "wet looking" as it claims when it dries but that was fine with me because I didn't want a super glossy finish. Literally, this stuff was a breeze to apply. I actually used a microfiber mop to spread it around and it went in beautifully and dried without any streaks or haze like other reviewers mentioned. I'm so happy with the results!
