Customer Questions & Answers

Is this sealant appropriate for an aggregate driveway? I am the new home owner and iwould like to seal a ten year old concrete aggregate driveway.

Asked by: Steve
If you are looking for a low sheen finish you can use the Cryli-Tek 5500 product to seal an aggregate driveway. Make sure the driveway is clean, dry and free of any previous sealers.

Customer Reviews

1 gal. Water Based Concrete and Masonry Water Repellent with Matte/Satin is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Washed and swept my colored stamped concrete patio. Used a 3/8"paint roller with extension handle to apply. Went on very easily and covered more than the expected amount of square footage. I am totally satisfied with the matte finish (has just a very light shine) as well as the overall look and feel. The sealer darkened and enhanced the color a little bit ...for me it was just right. I have confidence that it will hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked the finish The finish was exactly what I wanted. Not a high gloss sealer just a nice satin/matte finish. I would advise though that this is not recommended for colored concrete (I used it anyways) but if you want to enhance the color and you do have stamped concrete then you do need to use their Cryli-Tek 5505. I hate the wet look and was willing to sacrifice color enhancement for a subtle finish, so far it has held up well

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too shiny for "matte" I can't comment on durability yet, but this is much shinier than I would describe as "matte".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as advertised I followed the directions exactly as written and the result was outstanding. The prep work takes time but is very important.
