Questions & Answers

Will this product work on painted basement walls?

Will this product work on painted basement walls?
Asked by: Stef
This product is designed for garage floors and driveways. Water seems to bead up on it but I have never known it to be slippery. Can't see where it would help on basement walls, painted or unpainted.

I am looking to seal a concrete patio at my new restaurant to help keep it clean from spills is this the best product for that?
Asked by: TTJ
I have used it to seal my driveway,hopefully to keep oil and other stuff from staining. I have a lot of stuff on my concrete now but have not been able to power wash it yet. For a restaurant it probable would be good against food and drink stains.

I have exposed board form concrete walls in a basement. Which product should be used to prevent dampness penetration to basement and leave raw concrete color on walls ?
Asked by: Tom
I think this product is for surface crud. It helps make clean up easier. You probably need a Dry Lock type product to prevent water from leaching through the back of the wall.

I am going to put down either vinyl tile or ceramic tile over concrete - should I use this product to seal the concrete first?
Asked by: Kevin
Hi Kevin. The Lithi-Tek 9500 and the Siloxa-Tek 8500 are the formulas that can be painted over with enamel or oil-based paint, or you can tile or even lay carpet glue over them. There is not oil or stain repelling fluorocarbon in those two formulas so you should be fine with either.

1 gal. Invisible Penetrating Concrete and Masonry Water Repellent Sealer Plus Oil Repellent is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Oil Repllent Limitations This is after many emails back and forth with Ghostshield... Their 8505 contains an oil repellant, whereas 8500 does not, which is the only difference between them. If it seems like purchasing the 8505 is the better deal, think again and use caution. (1) The 8505 is oil "resistant" meaning it will still stain if you don't clean the area right away which is rather inconvenient to do in a garage, especially if you lay garage tiles over top the finished product. (2) You cannot apply ANY other spray, brush or roll on coatings over top the 8505 because they will not properly adhere to the surface due to the additives that make it oil repellent. Might be fine for a new concrete slab, or an older one that still looks good and you plan to acid etch and/or grind it before hand. But if you're not sure you will like the look of a clear finish beforehand, you might want to think about using the 8500 instead for its other excellent properties, then go over it with another non-clear coating for the look you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product was very easy to apply using a sponge roller. It appears to be working as indicated,... The product was very easy to apply using a sponge roller. It appears to be working as indicated, the water repellency is evident after just one day and more so now, after 1 week after application. My only negative is that the product does not go as far as it states it should. I applied two wet on wet coats as the instructions indicated yet, I really could have applied three wet on wet coats to fully ensure penetration into the pores of the concrete. The concrete did not change colors as other reviews indicated. I did thoroughly power wash the concrete and ensure there was no mold, mildew, dirt, oil or other stains present prior to applying this product. I used 6 gallons on a 12 x 30 patio; 12 x 12 concrete porch, and 20 x 2 walkway. The product did not cover the walkway completely as I was running low. I would buy this product again. If I had to do it over again, I would rent a paint sprayer to speed up the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly like I needed it to I applied this just recently to a concrete sidewalk that was poured about 4 months ago. Application was a breeze, though it didn't go as far as I thought it would. I may have applied it a little heavy. A day later I was able to see the water bead off the concrete. This will be great in the winter! Will be buying 3 more bottles to do our front porch and another coat on the sidewalk. I specifically bought this one because I wanted the oil repellent on the concrete apron at the end of our driveway. If you don't need the oil repellant, then just go with the 8500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. This stuff has been great! It has excellent coverage, repels oil and water, and dries completely transparent. I originally put down the 9500 ghost shield without realizing that it was not designed to repel oil. Cutomer service has been outstanding! They have been very helpful getting me this product and advising me on how to get the old product off, so that it could be applied. I applied this on my 1 year old driveway and garage. I couldn't be happier with the 8505 or the level of service and support I've received from Ghost Shield! I would purchase again.

Need to work fast before first coat dries. Sealer was applied to concrete porch area which is covered but open. Red wine spill easily hosed off. Left no stain. Matte finish looks good. Not slippery when wet.
