Surebond SB-6000 Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 8

- For a water based sealer, SB-6000 does a better then average job with darkening the brick pavers with a rich wet look. Applies milky white but dries crystal clear.

Gloss Level: N/A

- SB-6000 is not designed to add a gloss or shine.

Joint Sand Hardening: 8

- Surebond sealers are designed to stabilize jointing sand and the SB-6000 does not disappoint. After saturating the pavers sand with 2 coats of the sealer, the sand was hard to the touch within a few hours. The manufacturer suggests adding the SB-1300 joint sand stabilizing sealer after for increased sand stabilization.

Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 6

- SB-6000 did fairly well with fading. There was no uneven peeling or wearing.

White Haze/Yellowing: 9

- SB-6000 is a breathable sealer so at the 2 year mark there was not any white hazing form trapped moisture. There was a small amount of efflorescence visible in a shaded area.

Overall Score Surebond SB-6000 Sealer Sealer at 2 Year Period: 7.8

- SB-6000 is a very good sealer if you are looking for a wet look with little to no gloss. The sealer applies very easily and is fairly durable. One downside is that it is more expensive then most brands.

Applies easily, fades evenly, and does not discolor.

    Does this finish make the bricks slippery?

    Yes it does!!!! We used this sealer to seal our concrete pavers nest to our pool. My five year old got out of the pool, walked over to the pavers and slipped the second he put his foot on the pavers (he walked across pitted cements for about 2 feet first). Also, everyon says that you get a matte finish, but you do not. It might not be as glossy as the other wet-look sealers on the market, but it is still shiny. Better add some polymer grit additive to your sealer when sealing. This does seem to be a good sealer, but it IS slippery and it IS shiny. If you don't have any experience sealing pavers, the instructions could be better … like: backroll if necessary if all the sealer is not absorbed." If you haven't used it before and don't have years of experience sealing pavers, how would you know how long it should take for it to absorb all of the sealer and that you should hurry up and backroll before it sets up? Some timeframe guidelines would be helpful. I'm just sayin'…. Good luck!

    I want a wet look, on new pavers, but matte finish, not glossy. Is this the best choice? Also want to use it on cast concrete wall caps, does that work? This installation in the California desert, with lots of hot sun. Used polyermeric sand.

      Mike, this would be your best choice for a darkening of the surface with little to no shine. Probably will work on the wall caps as well.
