Super Diamond Clear Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 9

- We were very impressed with the Super Diamond Clear darkening/enhancing the stamped concrete patio. Overall look and colors were enhanced well.

Gloss Level: 8

- Super Diamond clear contains 25% solids according to the manufacturer. This sealer left a nice semi-gloss shine to the stamped concrete patio. We did notice that the Diamond Clear looked stunning when dried.

Joint Sand Hardening: n/a

- Does not apply as we used the Diamond Clear on a Stamped Concrete Patio that contained no jointing sand.

Fading/wearing After 2 Years: 7

- The Diamond Clear did fairly well with fading after 2 years and was on par with other solvent based sealers containing similar amounts of acrylic. There was not visible wearing or peeling.

White Haze/Yellowing: 6

- We were not impressed with the Diamond Clear when it came to the dreaded white haze. It did not turn white completely but it definitely left a light white look to the sealer and patio.

Overall Score Super Diamond Clear at 2 Year Period: 7.5

- Overall the Super Diamond Clear did well except with the white hazing. We were very impressed with the appearance after application and it did seem to hold up fairly well through the years.

Not a bad sealer but not the best either.

    Live in Dallas Texas and had an aggregate pool deck poured, what is the best sealer to use giving a wet look? Will i need to add an anti slip agent being that it is aggregate? Is it easy enough for me to do myself.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Michael, I would look at the SuperSeal 30 and adding a ant slip will help with the pool area. Yes you can easily do it yourself.

    Minnesota
    Horizontal
    Wet look, darkening, satin/semi-gloss
    Color impregnated brushed concrete pool deck
    Contractor sealed with Diamond Clear upon curing and again at 3 yrs. Now 3 yrs later (6 yrs ttl) need to seal again. Diamond Clear looks/performs great for 2 yrs only. At 3 it is basically gone. What will last/perform longer in Minnesota?

    I just receintly poored a new floor in my garage and sealed it with two coats of Super Diamond Clear and was wondering about using an anti-slip agent. It seems like this shouldn't be an issue I was just wondering what would be the best way to go about applying this? I've heard I will have to loosen it up a little with xylene.

  4. Chris says:

    I get bubbles up from the concrete every year so I have to put on a new coat every spring. Looks beautiful though.

    I had my stampcrete porch sealed and there are white areas that came up right after it was dried. Also a concrete repair was done the day before on the concrete porch and it was also sealed the day after the work was completed. It was power washed and sealed the same day. Was it done properly? I have pictures also.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Not sure. It could be trapped moisture under the sealer. Try applying xylene solvent to those areas to restore the look.

    • Chris says:

      Sue the concrete repair should have been sealed later, as for the white area use the xylene sparingly enough to wet the area as it will re emulsify the diamond clear allowing the moisture to escape make sure you roll or brush the area to mix the xylene into the sealer , then let dry, a light coat of sealer may have to be reapplied.

    Can I apply VCR tile on top of super diamond clear sealed?

  7. Patria L says:

    Guys staining deck above exposed aggregate concrete dripped stain on the patio. The patio is sealed with super diamond clear and they tried to clean it up by using paint thinner and a wire brush…now I have patches that are a dull white color in several places on my patio. The deck guys said they contacted the super clear folks and they said just to clean and re-seal those areas… should I trust this or does anyone think this doesn't sound right? Thanks for any advice here…
