Surebond SB-6000 Sealer Review

SB-6000 Sealer

SB-6000 Sealer

SB-6000 Wet Look Sealer seals and enhances the natural colors of treated surfaces with a luxurious, wet look. It is breathable and will not trap naturally occurring efflorescence, allowing it to be applied immediately after paving stones are installed. SB-6000 Wet Look Sealer improves surface durability and freeze-thaw resistance while protecting the surface from salt, acid, and staining. SB-6000 Wet Look Sealer is a water-based, exterior quality, epoxy modified surface sealer.

Surebond SB-6000 Sealer Scores (1-10)

– For a water based sealer, SB-6000 does a better than 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.

H&C Concrete Sealer Wet Look Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 5

– Being that this sealer is H&C’s designated “wet look” sealer, we expected a much richer look. The sealer did darken the surface but only slightly. Not on par with other water based sealers and not even close to a good solvent based sealer.

Gloss Level: 4

– H&C  Wet Look Sealer had little to no gloss for the first coat and a matte sheen after the second coat.

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. The 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.

H&C Gloss Concrete Sealer Review

H&C Clear Gloss Sealer

H&C Clear Gloss Sealer

H&C Concrete Sealer Clear Gloss Oil-based is a solvent-based sealer formulated with a silicone acrylic resin.  H&C’s Concrete Sealer Clear Gloss is a 23% solids high gloss coating for virtually any outdoor application.  It seals and protects while providing a durable non-yellowing finish.  It can be used as a decorative glaze on masonry walls, brick, and other cementitious materials.

Tested on Stamped Concrete and Brick Pavers

H&C Gloss Concrete Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 5

– H&C Gloss did a poor to average job of darkening brick pavers. It performed slightly better for the stamped concrete over the brick pavers but sill not nearly as good as the other solvent based acrylic sealers.

Gloss Level: 7.5

– Not bad for the gloss level. H&C Gloss concrete sealer contains 23% solid acrylic. This is an average amount for solvent based sealers. One coat showed little to no gloss but the second coat did make a difference and we ended up with a stain sheen to the pavers and a semi-gloss for the stamped concrete.

Seal n Lock Paver Sealer

Seal n Lock Paver Sealer

Seal n Lock Super Wet is a high solids, two-part water based pure urethane sealer that penetrates the pavers to provide a longer lasting protective barrier with superior joint stabilization (no need for polymeric sand) resulting in a ‘wet look.’ Super Wet is user-friendly and environmentally safe.

Seal n Lock Paver Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 6

– Considering this is the Seal n Lock wet look version, the sealer did a very average job at enhancing or improving the paver stones with a wet look.

Gloss Level: 6

– Same as the wet look, The Seal N Lock did have an average shine after drying. This product goes on milky white but dries to a clear satin shine.

Behr Wet Look Sealer Review

Behr Wet look Sealer

Behr Wet look Sealer

BEHR PREMIUM® WET-LOOK SEALER is a clear, non-yellowing, high solids, acrylic-based masonry sealer. It is formulated to seal, protect and beautify concrete and masonry surfaces with a high gloss, wet-look finish. BEHR PREMIUM WET-LOOK SEALER is also an excellent topcoat for paints and stains.

Applied to a stamped concrete walkway.

Behr Wet Look Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 3

– Wet look? The Behr wet look sealer barely changed the appearance of the stamped concrete surface even after two coats. Went on milky white and dried milky as well.

Gloss Level: 3

– Behr claims that their sealer will leave a high gloss shine. After the two coast, we barely saw any remnants of any gloss let alone a high gloss. Very misleading marketing from Behr.
