Best Stamped Concrete and Cure Sealer - Stampsheen
This is the best overall traditional solvent-based concrete sealer and can protect new concrete right away- apply a thin coat of this sealer after a few days and protect your new concrete until it's fully cured @ 28 days, and then apply another coat or two of this sealer for full, long term protection. This industry standard go-to sealer for 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.

- Ultimate high-gloss cure and sealer
- 25% solids, solvent-based, pure acrylic resin
- Non-yellowing, UV-resistant, anti-spall, wear-resistant. Protects concrete surfaces by making them resist staining, chipping, and freezing.
- This “cure and seal” style sealer provides the advantage of being able to apply the day after cleaning (no 30 day wait – no worries)
- Highlight all the fine detail and color of the stamp job
- Coverage: approx. 200 sq ft/gallon
- Sealed concrete can be slippery, so adding Anti Slip Grit (sold here) to the sealer will keep it safe!
- 1 qty. of the Anti Slip Grit (1lb) is designed to treat 5 gallons of sealer, so you would use 1/5 of the Slip Grit into each 1 gallon of sealer.
- Stampsheen is tintable!! Use RZ Tints (RZ Tints sold here) to add color to the sealer. Great for changing/freshening the color of your old concrete, or making two different colors of concrete a closer match!
- Stampsheen comes as high gloss, but all you have to do is add Matting Agent to it (Matting Agent sold here) and make it Semi-Gloss, Satin, or full Matte depending how much of the Matting Agent you add!
- While normally used outdoors, Stampsheen CAN be used inside too, and then protected with a top-coat of sacrificial Floor Wax/Polish (Wax sold here)!
- Coverage: 200-300 square feet per gallon, depending on porosity of surface. For stamped concrete, It's common to get 200 sq. ft. on the first coat, and 300 square feet on an optional second coat.
- Contains 25% acrylic solids.
- Sold in 1 Gallon sizes.
- View Stampsheen 700 Safety Data (SDS) Stampsheen 350 (SDS)
- Easy application- Ensure application surface is clean and dry. Apply with brush, roller, or Industrial Concrete Sprayer (sold here). Clean up with xylene.
- Drying time: 4 hours at 75 degrees F. Maximum hardness achieved after 7 days.
- Apply 2 or more light coats with 1-3 hours between coats (or until surface is dry to the touch).
- Avoid applying in direct sunlight, on rainy/foggy days, or during the hottest part of the day. Apply in temperatures between 55°F and 80°F.
- Keep foot traffic off for 24 hours. Allow 72 hours before heavy traffic.
- If used on surfaces not textured for slip resistance, especially in areas water can accumulate, adding a Anti-Skid Additive to the sealer (must be constantly mixed while applying to keep it in suspension) will help prevent slippery surfaces.
- Interior surfaces can be treated with Acrylic Floor Wax once sealed, which is very quick to apply and is the preferred method of routine maintenance to keep the surface protected, and looking great.
Used this to recoat a Pli-Dek deck. Pli-Dek's top coat only comes in 5 gallon buckets. I simply didn't need that much. Found that this product is virtually the same clear sealer. Rolled on easily and covered well.
I was apprehensive about trying this sealer myself, but was surprised when it was easy to just roll on and made my old worn out patio look brand new! You guys are the best!
