EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Concrete Sealer
As of 2023, we have found that the EnduraSeal 100% Acrylic Sealer does not perform well or last that long and needs to be recoated annually for Stamped Concrete, Brick Pavers, and other Decorative Concrete Surfaces. It also has issues turning white as it is not a breathable sealer, but a 100% pure acrylic.
If you have any questions on the EnduraSeal 100% Acrylic Sealer, please ask below in our Q&A area. We are here to help!

EnduraSeal 100% Acrylic Paver and Concrete Sealer Scores (1-10)
Wet Look: 8.5
– EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Solvent Sealer contains 20%+ solid content of acrylic. It darkened our stamped concrete patio as if wet with water and stayed that way after drying. Enhanced the natural red and tones of the patio.
Gloss Level: 7.5
– The EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Sealer gave a matte shine not a semi-gloss shine. The overall appearance on our test patio was quite rich-looking but not too shiny. The sealer was slightly slippery after applying and was a danger to the pool area.
Joint Sand Hardening: N/A
– EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Sealer was applied to a stamped concrete patio with no sand.
Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 5
– EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Sealer showed poor results after 2 years. About 50% of the gloss and wet look remained at the 2-year mark. This product needs to be reapplied every year to keep it looking good.
White Haze/Yellowing: 3
– The EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Sealer is 100% pure acrylic. This means it is not breathable like a Styrene Acrylic Sealer and will have issues turning white from moisture and UV. In our test patio, about 80% of the sealer had a white haze to it after 1 year and looked pretty bad at two years. There are other reports of this happening on other review sites such as Amazon.
Overall Score EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Sealer at 2 Year Period: 6.0
– EnduraSeal 100% Pure Acrylic Sealer did not work very well for us. The product failed in 12 months and has a tendency to blush or turn white. We do not care for 100% pure acrylic sealers due to the issues they have with this. The one positive was its rich wet look and appearance after applying. This, unfortunately, does not last very long in our test.
