1 Gal. Water Based Acrylic Wet Look Concrete and Paver Water Repellent Sealer


Frequently Bought Together


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. Protects and enhances the look of decorative surfaces for up to 3 years. Treated surfaces resist staining, surface deterioration and hot tire pickup while eliminating concrete dusting. Easily applied with a high-quality nap roller or brush, the 5500 can be used on a variety of new and old, indoor and outdoor concrete, brick and masonry applications. A clear, low gloss, wet look finish that will not yellow, whiten, fade, chip or delaminate makes this product unique. Brings life into dull concrete to brighten and keep it vibrant and colorful keeping concrete looking “wet” for years to come.

The best sealer I have ever used!
I love this sealer. It goes on easy with very low odor. The sheen is beautiful!

    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

        Looks great once its done.
        Looks great once its done. The most time consuming part was prepping the concrete. We had previously used a solvent based acrylic but wanted to switch over to a water based acylic. We had to strip our patio using a chemical stripper, then we had to pressure wash it and let it dry. Sealing was easy since the prouct was ready to use right out of the gallon. Easy to pour into a paint tray and roll right onto the concrete. Much less artificial looking than the previous sealer we used while still looking wet.

          Floors are easy to Swiffer
          Leaves a wet gloss type look with a very smooth feel. Used on my interior concrete floors (we have concrete floors with radient heat throughout our home as the final floor. The floors are now very easy to sweep and mop with a Swiffer. Will recommend for sure.

            Dries clear and perfect
            Goes on milky, purple and hazy but dries clear and perfect. Not sticky or slick or too thick. Love the wet look finish that not too glossy or fake looking.

              No odor. This is the best concrete driveway sealer I’ve ever used in terms of effective sealing and non-slip gloss finish. Wind blows leaves & debris away. Outstanding.

                Time will tell about durability
                Easy to apply very small amount of odor. Floor looks great as far as the wet look. Time will tell about durability.
