If you have any questions or have used the Glaze N Seal Wet Look Sealer product, please ask below in our Q&A area. We are here to help!
The original Glaze N Seal “Wet Look” Lacquer provides beautiful high gloss protection to decorative concrete, masonry, and natural stone. For use on porous materials. A clear, non-yellowing sealer that resists tough oils, water, and acid – indoors and outdoors. Deep bonding formula resists peeling, cracking, UV degradation, and efflorescence. Great for driveways, patios, fountains, and ponds.
Glaze ’N Seal is a crystal clear, high solids acrylic coating designed to protect and beautify concrete, masonry, and tile surfaces. This super-tough film was formulated for interior or exterior use. Walk on it – drive on it (it does reject organic stains). It offers ultimate protection in a clear finish.
Brick Paver Patio – 1 coat applied.
Glaze N Seal Wet Look Sealer Scores (1-10)
Wet Look: 8
– Glaze N Seal Wet Look is an excellent wet look sealer. The brick paver patio that we applied to had never been sealed since it was installed 6 years ago. The Glaze N Seal enhanced the gray and red paver bricks as if they were wet with water. The customer was very happy after the application.
Gloss Level: 6
– Of the solvent-based sealers, Glaze N Seal Wet Look is not the shiniest. The final gloss level after applying 2 coats was a nice matte shine.
Joint Sand Hardening: 7
– The Glaze N Seal Wet Look is thinner than some of the other paver and decorative concrete sealers. This allowed the sealer to penetrate deep into the sand, hardening the top 3/4″. After two years there was about 30% sand loss or erosion. Some algae and grass had grown in the sand joints after the second season.
Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 6
– About 60% of the sealer’s wet look had remained after 2 years. No peeling or uneven wearing.
White Haze/Yellowing: 9
– We were impressed with the Glaze N Seal Wet Look Sealer when it came to blushing. The only white marks in the sealer were underneath some potted plants. Most likely trapped moisture or mineral deposits from water.
Overall Score Glaze N Seal Wet Look Sealer at 2 Year Period: 7.2
– Not a bad sealer, if you can find this product locally then we would suggest using it. If not then there are some better solvent-based sealers online, but only slightly better.
Great and enhancing colors, mediocre gloss level, and no blushing make the Glaze N Seal Wet Look sealers a better than average coating for decorative concrete and brick paver surfaces.
