Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Beads up...but doesn't waterproof that well
I used this product on newly poured concrete cured for 30+ days. I cleaned the concrete with a soft brush and very light soap (in water) and rinsed it very well. I applied the product about 36 hours later when the concrete was comp0letely dry and gave it a good sweep right before applying the sealer.
I applied the sealer using a tank sprayer but I brushed over it with a paint brush to make sure it was evenly applied and I applied a thick layer for each coat. I applied 2 coats and waited about 4 hours after the first coat to apply the second coat (yes, the first coat was completely dry when I applied the second coat).
Problem is, now when I apply water to my "sealed" concrete (or after it rains), the water does in fact bead up, however, after about 1-2 hours, the beaded/standing water starts to penetrate through the sealer and into the concrete. So what you get is concrete that has a bunch of wet spots on it. These wet spots can take 1-4 days do dry up depending on temperature, humidity, direct sunlight, etc. because those spots are actually under the sealer.
Since those wet spots take so long to dry up since the water is now under the sealer, I am worried that this may actually aid in degrading the concrete rather than protecting it.
While I am going to give it another 1 or 2 coats to see it that fixes the problem, I have my doubts. However, even if it does solve the problem, having to put down 3-4 coats (or who knows, maybe even more!) becomes a costly endeavor. Also, if I do put more coats down, I can't wash the concrete because it will stay wet for too long if want to apply the sealer the next day. I can only sweep it very well and hope for the best.
Because of this, I would have recommend looking into some other sealer product, unfortunately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al Very good product
This product goes on milky but dries clear. It really seals the wood and helps save me money because I use less paint. After I did apply paint over the Seal Krete, the paint job looked more even. Great product but wish the carried it in their store.

this product worked well for exactly what I wanted, sealing flagstone. easy to apply, dried promptly and worked very well, especially after 2 coats. not so good on concrete but that material is so much more porous.

The product applied easily and dried quickly. The key to success with products like this is to apply several thin coats with ample dry time in between rather than try to get it all at once with a thick single coat.
I had a rain shower come by within 12 hrs of my applying the first coat and it seemed to repel it all with no seepage. Can't really say how durable this will be in the long run but it seems to be holding up well.

I expected more of a silicone type product that would sink into the concrete more and not leave any shine on the surface at all. It does water proof but also seals in pre existing stains and makes them even darker so they show up more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRome So far okay
So far this product is performing as expected. Have yet to find a product that truly waterproofs concrete. I will update this rating in about six months if there is a change. Product is $3 cheaper at WalMart
