Questions & Answers

Can I use a sprayer to apply AR500 ?

Asked by: blackharley
The viscous nature of the product would likely cause you to have to add a thinning agent. The product efficacy would be impinged upon possibly. The test sample would be indicated prior to doing a large area.

Would this work on unsealed, sandstone hearth? I'm mainly going to use this on my patio, but will have some left over. Hearth is too porous and gets dirty too quickly and I thought this might work. What do you think? Thanks
Asked by: Mickey
I think this product will adhere to and cover sandstone, though it probably will require at least two coats. I used two coats of this product on saltillo tile on an entryway floor. It adhered well and had a good sheen. However, the foot traffic caused it to wear/lose some of its sheen after a half year or so. I think sandstone is more porous than saltillo tile. If so, this product will probably adhere better to sandstone than to saltillo tile. Since there is no foot traffic to wear it down, I imagine the sheen will remain for years.

5 gal. Solvent Based Acrylic High Gloss Concrete Sealer and Paver Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waterproofing concrete. Waterproofing concrete is a good idea, so that it will reject water penetration and thus will not promote mold, mildew and dirt. I believe that the product will do that job. Some of the statements by the manufacturer are questionable: It says that it " Will bring out the color in dull or faded concrete and pavers". Actually the clean concrete went dull after application, even though it is glossy. (pictures are proof) The product is a thick clear solution, and does have heavy toxic smell. So, even though the manufacturer says, it is for Interior/Exterior use, I would not recommend it for indoor use,due to the toxic smell. The application is not that great and user friendly; the overlapping of application makes it not too nice to see. The warranty statement by the manufacturer is intimidating. It says " There are no guarantees or warranties to the products performance or suitability to specific applications. Actual conditions of use, handling, and end product performance are the sole responsibility of the user."

After much online research I ordered the AR500 High Gloss solvent based sealer for a repaired fireplace brick face in my den. The product performed as I had wanted as the first coat covered some brick/mortar issues that came from a recent ceiling joist failure. The second coat brought out the "antique brick" colors that went very well with the exposed beam/T&G natural ceiling that I had installed. This completes my den project and I am very pleased with the results. I highly recommend the Foundation Armor.

I am redoing the concrete sealer currently and switching to the AR500 only because I want a higher gloss. This product is easy to use and apply, I've read some nightmare stories on sealers going on poorly so was hesitant years ago, but you have to start somewhere. So will keep using their products. The sealer also really brings out the color in my walnut travertine, making it truly shine.

Date published: 2019-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the results, it was truly high gloss Putting down the AR500 was easier that I imagined. To apply, it’s best to use a high quality pump sprayer. The ones sold in places like Wal-Mart and Home Depot paint section will give you a stream that comes out too heavy and will not be evenly distributed. I tried three different hand held plastic sprayers and had to resort to the bigger back pack pest control sprayer. This worked but I had to pump frequently to keep the flow steady. A bit of advice for when you get along the side of the house, put a piece of card board to prevent the sealer from splashing. If you don’t, as you spray, there will be streak marks from the sealer that you can’t remove. This sealer is not recommended for bricks. I wanted to get a high gloss finish and was very skeptical to use this product since there was only one review on the Home Deport web site that did not recommend it. For years I’ve tried other high gloss sealers from Sherman Williams, Lowes and Home Depot and was disappointed because they all left a whitish look on the paver. With the AR500 it was all clear and glossy. I am a happy camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not exactly the wet look but really close If you need to bring new life to old or even new patio bricks this is the right product choice. I tested it out and you can see a very noticeable difference. It dried very quickly and went on easily. This will help prevent staining so to give the bricks a like new look. One year after we installed our bricks you couldn't see the veining that we really liked when we bought them. This product brought the veining back. Check out my test piece photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Because of weather (3 feet of snow), we only got to test this sealer during our only two days of sunshine. We put it on our rock wall in the front of the house because we had not yet sealed it. It went on easily and smoothly and dried with a nice sheen. When we swept off the foot of snow that was on the wall this morning, the place we sealed had the sheen, and no wetness seeped through. We can't wait to try it on the floor of our concrete chicken coop next summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price Used this on our stamped patio that had not been reglazed in a couple yrs. Recommend 2 coats. It turned our dull patio to a nice shine. Only thing I would have done different is to add the color to it. Our patio was a faded brick red this did darken it up a bit. The first coat soaked this stuff up and a 1gal bottle almost finished our 200 sqft patio. Ordered a second bottle and did a full second coat with some to spare.
