About This Product

Just like natural and man-made stone, concrete and masonry are porous materials. They will start to break down, dust, pit, crack and/or stain easily when subjected to weather, water, oil and UV rays. The only way to prevent damage and deterioration is to protect surfaces with a good quality sealer. Latex base DRYLOK Protector Clear Low Sheen Penetrating Sealer provides clear, weatherproof protection against deterioration caused by de-icing salts, household cleaners, acid, gasoline, oil and weathering. Formulated with our exclusive SaltLok Technology, it penetrates into the surface and provides superior resistance to unsightly efflorescence stains (salt deposits) that are often visible on brick, block and poured concrete surfaces. Protect interior, exterior, vertical and horizontal masonry surfaces like stucco, brick and concrete. Prevents excessive dusting, surface cracking and pock marking.

Q:What do I use first? The sealer or the paint? It is going on new, bare concrete. Im painting with your drylok garge floor paint but not sure if I seal or paint first?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Jaws - The DRYLOK® Protector is only needed for certain situations. DRYLOK® Concrete Floor Paint is self-priming on a properly prepared surface. If the surface is extremely porous, DRYLOK® Protector can be used as a primer/sealer.

    Q:I need tinted paint, so can can I use a different paint instead of drylok concrete floor paint? If paint says 100% acrylic latex in satin or low lustre sheen, will the paint adhere directly to this drylok protector sealer?

      Q:Question No 2. Can I apply this product to my patio in sections rather than all at once. How long does it last/how often to redo? Thanks

      A:  Chris, unfortunately the pictures are not visible to me for review. Once cleaned, DRYLOK® Protector will seal the surface and help protect. Lifetime of the coating depends on several factors (traffic, weather, sun exposure, etc.) It can be applied in sections using the indents you mentioned as breaks.

        Q:I have a large concrete patio as shown in photo, approx 30 yrs old. The design is not stamped, they are pavers with approx 25" indents. Working to remove all the dirt and moss and use paver base. Would a sealer provide good protection?

          leaves tire marks
          What a waste of money! this product doesn't work! I'm very disappointed in this product. Followed the prep and curing instructions and still left hot tired marks. This is absolutely unacceptable for this level of product.

            Not Effective
            Applied 1 coat (at recommended coverage rate) to a 1yr old uncoated concrete garage and the water still absorbed. Purchased another can and applied a second coat, waited 48hrs and the still absorbs in spots, although not 100% like 1 coat did. The water does sit on the surface longer than it did when uncoated, but never beads up (like a Gore-Tex jacket) like other products I have used in the past. Very disappointed since I spent hours cleaning & etching for prep. Photo in review is an oz of water after about 10 seconds - note the dark spots of absorption.

            Eric,

            I have reviewed all the communications you had with our Technical Service Department. I see we sent you free product for your initial complaint as well. If you are looking for a coating that will bead water "like a Gore-Tex jacket", then you chose the wrong product. This product is acrylic resin based that penetrates deeply into the concrete and seals it. It does not "bead" water as it's not a silicone or wax based product. You applied one coat after etching and tested it, then applied a second coat. What spread rate did you apply at? What was the square footage you applied the product on and how much did you use. There are several variables to consider - Porosity of the concrete, spread rate, and cure time. When you etched the surface you opened the pores of the concrete to allow the coating to penetrate deeply which is excellent. How long did you allow the floor to dry before applying the sealer? If you didn't apply enough product to fully seal the new porous surface then the pinholes can allow water to penetrate. This is due to the porosity variations on the surface. Again - you will not see beading, this is not that type of product and we do not make any claims that water will "bead" on the surface. To address the areas that you see water darkening, this indicates you didn't apply enough product to satisfy the porosity - simple brush or roll a small amount in those areas. Allow 24-48 hours before testing again. wtuckerugl
              I got this to seal the (painted) concrete in my carport with the idea that it would prevent tire marks from parking the car. The application process was easy. Followed application and drying instructions, didn’t drive on it for 72+ hours. Everything sticks to it. Tire marks show up waaaaay more than on the painted driveway that doesn’t have the drylok. I’m definitely going to be painting something over it, because the tire marks are sooooo apparent. Pretty disappointed!

              Sorry to read this - The statement "everything sticks to it" sounds like the product didn't properly cure or was overapplied. Would you please give us a call to discuss? You can reach us at 1-800-845-5227. We look forward to discussing your situation and determining a solution. wtuckerugl

              I’ve been using this product on my stamped concrete patio for years. The patio has a nice shine. I use it twice a year, spring and fall.

              Old brick looks like new
              I just applied this to my brick path and it looks fantastic. It made the old brick look new again and the fact that it will protect it from the weather is a bonus!
