Product Overview

This breathable, water-based acrylic sealer provides a glossy, wet look finish that darkens concrete, pavers and natural stone while enhancing colors. This professional grade sealer is durable, odorless, UV stable, non yellowing & easy to work with. We took all the best attributes of the 5505 - clear, non-yellowing, UV stable and made it into a low-gloss, wet look, water-based formulation. The acrylic resins used in this formula have been independently tested and are more durable and last longer than other acrylic sealers on the market.

A clear, low gloss, wet look finish that will not yellow, whiten, fade, chip or delaminate makes this product unique.

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

Easy to apply
Goes on easy and repels water. I used a 3/8” nap roller and paint brush on harder to reach areas

            At first was a bit disappointed, but after giving it several hours a nice matte sheen formed. Although one coat was probably adequate, applied a second coat to high traffic areas. It went on so easy after the first coat that did the entire patio of stamped concrete and got a really nice finish and sheen. Tried on a regular concrete step pad which was really worn and aged, did not work as well. Appears to be slick after getting wet, but also dropped a few spots of paint on the surface and they wiped right up without leaving a mark. Product actually covered far more area than advertised. Overall, very satisfied.

            Patience Before Judging
            After applying this product to stamped concrete there was some initial disappointment, but after about 12-16 hours the sheen showed up and the look was really nice. While it is a low sheen, it is still a high or bright sheen which was fine and the final look was very good. After 24 hours I applied a second coat, and it went on very easily and the final finish was extremely good and I was very pleased. It would be good if on the website there was some short video clip showing application and how much to apply. I tried some on a regular concrete sidewalk area but the look was not as nice, though did not put on a 2nd coat. I would use this again on the stamped concrete.

              Great Product, Easy to apply
              I purchased 3 gals. from Home Depot for use on my paver pool deck in Southwest Florida. I used half of the product - the pavers didn’t suck up as much as expected. I found that using a 3” high quality paint brush was great around tight corners and areas not to be treated. I started out using the recommended high quality 1/4 inch paint roller then switched to the 3/8 nap which I found was easier to apply - allowing deeper penetration between the paver joints. The process was smooth and flawless - I had anticipated a much tough job, but this was easy! I highly recommend this product - its not an overpowering wet/shiny look, but it adds a very professional moderate sheen to the pavers. Now, to see how long it lasts.

                My driveway is one of the nicer ones
                I have never sealed my concrete before but after driving through my neightborhood and seeing all the decorative concrete I decided it was time for me to keep up with the Jones. I didn’t want my stamped concrete to look super shiny or wet so I opted for the Cryli-Tek 5500. Now my driveway is one of the nicer looking ones.
