Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suzie First Layer Really Soaked In
I used this product after neutralizing the acid stain on my floors. I bought two gallons to use on 400 sq ft. I got worried when I had to stretch the first gallon to make it all the way across. Apparently only the first layer really soaks in. Once it was sealed, the next two layers went on very thin.

Went on easy and looked great - I applied this to the driveway that had been stained. Nice glossy finish. It's only been a few days, but already after a heavy rain storm it's looking good. Will have to wait and see how it maintains over the Winter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2Grits Easy DIY water cleanup. Overall happy.
It came in a paint bucket instead of the jar pictured. This was a good thing because it made application easier. I could dip the brush directly into the product. It is very thin like water. I used 3/4ths of the gallon to cover approximately 100 square sfeet and thought I would have to order a second gallon for the second coat, but the first coat just soaks in more. I finished the second coat with 1/4 of the can, although I used a brush instead of a roller to make it go further and did not try to give the grout a second coat. I could have used another 1/4 gallon but did not want to spend the extra money. I did like the product. It cleans up with water. Once it cured, the cement pavers appear"waterproof" as water beads up on them. They don't have the wet look I wanted although they are a little darker. Maybe another gallon would give them a shine? Some pavers look blotchy even with an extra thick second coat where I was trying to cover the areas that looked like I had missed on the first coat. It wasn't a coverage issue, but could be that the pavers vary in composite consistency. The pavers are from the other big box home store. I chose them for the red and purple grays that went with a granite wall behind the new patio. I learned that this product does not cover blemishes in the floor. It goes on milky purple and dries clear, so if you have imperfections in the concrete beforehand, this product does not hide anything, but it may prevent further staining. I had a contractor tell me to use urethane on my carport after I grind off the old paint because it is exposed to the weather. I can see how the urethane would protect a stain on bare concrete and not have hot tire issues. It soaks into the concrete. Preparation of the surface would be paramount. That's my next project and I will be researching to be sure this product is right for that job. Is there's other urethane product I should know about? This seems to be what the contractor was referring to but I am not certain. 4/5 stars because I didn't get the wet look I expected even though I am not sure it didn't have something to do with the quality of the pavers.

This product definitely works. The chemicals are strong so would recommend a mask if you are not outdoors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rcoryw Good Sealer for Acid-Stained Concrete
This sealer was easy to apply with sprayer and provided a low-sheen, durable finish that helped improve and darken the acid-stain color.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Divekeys Armor seal water based
This product worked as expected. For some reason they did not sell the non-water based version which has a more glossy finish. The finish with this was like a damp finish, slightly glossy. I also got the polish which will improve the gloss. It really all boils down to the finish of the concrete. The smoother the concrete the more glossy it will be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC Thin coats required
Easy to apply, sprayed on the sealer and back rolled with a 1/2" nap roller keeping each coat VERY thin. If you apply this sealer thick in any areas it will haze. This is a property of all acrylic sealers. The finish is more satin than gloss. I chose not to apply a second coat since there were some areas that were thicker than others and I did not want to chance fracturing or haze in the top coat.
Excellent product. Will use again when I seal my sidewalk/driveway.
Can't speak yet to the durability since it was just recently applied.
