Questions & Answers

Can this product be applied to already painted concrete or cinder block walls?

I'm not clear whether this product has to be applied to unpainted surfaces in order for it to work, or whether I can apply it to previously painted surfaces before i repaint them.

Is a solvent based sealer more durable than a water based sealer?

Foundation armor apparently makes both, in the specs the say that both products last 7-10 years, it looks like a “copy paste” description.
Asked by: Curious1
NO.... one is not better than the other. However, water based is typically slower to dry time and penetrates further into the substrate due to not flashing off like most solvents do.

can this be used to water proof my basement walls? If so, can it be sprayed over the chalkiness or do the walls have to be scrubbed first?
Asked by: cle
Any product applied over a chaulky surface will not work as well. Since this is applied like water, it will soak in even through and under a powdery surface, but would certainly benefit from a cleaner surface. Pressure washing, or scrubbing with a stiff brush and cleaner like Jomax and bleach should really be done first. Also, no product can really waterproof an inside surface of concrete, brick or stone which has water seeping in from outside. You can only slow it down and reduce the amount of water. To have any real success, you would have to waterproof from outside the walls, preventing them from getting wet in the first place. Yes, I understand that would mean digging an enormous trench around the entire basement, and is likely prohibitive. This is one of the better products for sealing, but don't expect the impossible. Try a dehumidifier!

Is this a high gloss sealer or what do you recommend to get a wet look on pavers around a pool

Is this a high gloss sealer or what do you recommend to get a wet look on pavers around a pool
Asked by: Projman
The SX5000 is a water/salt guard product that gives a natural look (matte finish). For a wet look around a pool area, the AX25 is a great choice and works well for salt water pools too. You could also use the AR500 around a pool if it's not salt water.

5 gal. Penetrating Solvent Based Silane Siloxane Concrete Sealer and Masonry Water Repellent is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 44.

Do to the lack of gutters, whenever it rains, water comes off the roof and splashes off a brick sill that surrounds the front part of my building. Over time it has eroded the brick and mortar and moss frequently grows in the places that don't see much sun. I had hired a company to come out to clean and repair the brick work and they suggested I use this product to seal the brick after they were done. Well, I figured I want it to last this time so I got the SX5000 and applied it to the wall and sill. I spoke with the company that makes it and they suggested I do a few coats as brick is more porous than concrete. It was easy to spray on and the brick sucked it all in. The real test was a week later when we had heavy rains and the water beaded right off the brick! It's been 3 months now and I see no signs of moss and the water still beads off the brick like the day I applied it. Very happy with my purchase.

I recently applied this product to my concrete driveway and adjoining parkway. The existing stamped concrete surface is about six years old and in Idaho, we have some harsh winters sometimes. I use "ice melt" and see some signs of spalling after the winters. This product was highly recommended by the national concrete association and the reason I bought it. A week or so ago I applied it to my parkway as a test to see how it went on and other issues. I was very surprised to see this product is just like water! There's absolutely no color or other signs it has any solids. However, a few days after I applied it, it rained. The areas where I applied it, there was absolutely no water penetration on the treated surface! DRY! Non treated areas WET! Ok, it's not winter yet and thus no ice or ice melt but based on my preliminary observations, this will definately help reduce, maybe eliminate any further spalling! More to follow in the spring.

My understanding of such waterproofing liquids is that the key is the amount of silane/siloxane waterproofing compounds. Some inexpensive products may have 1%-3%. I believe this is over 30%. Water based product is very easy to apply, and easy to clean up . I used a cheap pump up sprayer, and even soaking very irregular concrete bricks on a vertical wall, got great coverage, about 175 square feet, even though I applied so much that a lot dripped off. This did not discolor or stain, and dried quickly, and my hands and sprayer cleaned up easily with water. We have not yet had a rain, so I cannot tell if this sealed any leaking through the bricks, but water does bead up and runs off where garden watering has hit the area. The few bad reviews do not make sense to me. Coverage was great, easy to apply, works well, and I don't see how this product have caused damage to concrete brick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, the water just beads and runs off!! I recently sealed our concrete curbs to bring out the true color that was mixed in the concrete (see my AR350 review). In talking with the people that make these products, we also got to discussing sealing our driveway. Following their recommendations, we recently completed this project with this product, which is super simple to apply using a garden sprayer (after a good cleaning). Wow - now, the water just beads up and runs off. It stays the same color as when it is dry, indicating very little if any water is seeping into the concrete. We are hoping to decrease the amount of mold/mildew that appears on the driveway over time here in FL. Anyway, we are very please with the product, and the folks I talked too were very professional and provided me with all the information I needed. Thank you!

In preparation for the rainy season in Tampa, Florida I did some research on the internet for a good concrete and paver sealer. After researching dozens of sealers I decided to purchase a 5 gallon can of your Armor SX5000. I used it on the pavers around my in-ground pool and I was so impressed with the results that I purchased a second 5 gallon can approximately six weeks later to use on the pavers in front of my house and sidewalk as well. I have even used it on my pool storage chest, now it looks like new again. The SX5000 was easy to work with and took less time to complete the project than I anticipated. I am now going to purchase a third 5 gallon can of SX5000 to use on my driveway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for our stamped concrete walkway We have tried various products for our stamped concrete walkway, and while they look good for a while, it seems that just cleaning was just not worth the effort. We tried the Penetrating Clear Concrete and Masonry Water Repellent Sealer with Salt Guard and were very pleased; right after cleaning the surfaces, we used the SX5000, until it ran out. the difference between the treated and untreated area is amazing. I took some photos, but they don't do it justice! There is a wonderful sheen on the treated area, clean and almost like new again. I'm going to finish the job when the weather improves, but I can't imagine finding a better product for our walk. Its over ten years old now, but the sealer made it look great!

It has been a little over a year since I applied this product and I am happy to report that it still works as well as it did the day I applied it. My driveway was able to make it through Winter without any chips off the surface, and this is the first year that I didn't have to rent a pressure washer to clean my driveway. I am very happy with my purchase and plan to order more for my garage.
