GemKote Low VOC Solvent Based Acrylic Curing Compound and Sealer
This is the best overall outdoor concrete sealer- just like SuperSeal 2000. GemKote meets stricter VOC regulations, but applies, looks, and functions the same as SuperSeal 2000. Use this on your driveway, patio, pool deck, garden benches, firepits. This is a solvent based sealer, which is great because you'll need to apply this sealer periodically as the sun and weather (and driving on it for a driveway) will slowly wear it down, and re-applying a Solvent Based Acrylic sealer is easy! When you apply a new coat a year or two from now, the solvents will work their way into the old sealer, and re-emulsify it and the new sealer coat will mix in with it, creating a brand new sealer look again.
