Update – SuperSeal VOC Concrete and Paver Sealer

As of 2024, we have found that the SuperSeal VOC Concrete and Paver Sealer is one of the most popular sealers for Stamped Concrete, Brick Pavers, and other Decorative Concrete Surfaces. If you have any questions on the SuperSeal VOC Concrete and Paver Sealer product, please ask below in our Q&A area. We are here to help!


This is a Low VOC solvent-based concrete sealer that is compliant with states that restrict the Volatile Organic Compounds to a 250 limit.

The SuperSeal VOC is a 25% solid solvent-based acrylic that is primarily used for all exterior decorative concrete such as Brick Pavers, Stamped Concrete, Exposed Aggregate, etc.  This sealer will darken the appearance and leave a shine similar to a semi-gloss.

It was one of a handful of solvent-based sealers of this type that can still be shipped to states such as California.

Note: This sealer has the same properties as the SuperSeal25 but with an exempt solvent that allows it to be used for Low VOC restricted states.

SuperSeal VOC Paver and Concrete Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 10

– SuperSeal VOC enhanced the Stamped Concrete patio dramatically. The gray and red colors in the dye of the concrete were restored and enhanced to a rich color.

Gloss Level: 7

– SuperSeal VOC is a 25% solid styrene-acrylic sealant. After drying the patio had retained a semi-gloss shine, Overall appearance was uniform and no bubbles in the sealer were present.

Joint Sand Hardening: 7

– We did not have any sand on the stamped concrete patio. We have used this sealer for brick pavers were the jointing sand did harden well for 2 years with minimal washout.

Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 8

– The sealer had lost about 20% of its original shine and wet look at the 2-year mark.  No peeling, pitting or wearing was noticeable.

White Haze/Yellowing: 10

– There was no visible white hazing or yellowing of the sealer after 2 years.

Overall Score SuperSeal VOC at 2 Year Period: 8.4

– SuperSeal VOC is an excellent solvent-based sealer. If you are in a limited VOC state and need a quality solvent-based sealer for brick pavers or other decorative concrete surfaces, the SuperSeal VOC would be a good choice.

Just saw your reply to Super Seal 2000 below that it is an “inferior product”. So how do you apply your product over an old Sealer?

Hi, I live near Sun Valley, ID at 6000 ft where my stamped concrete sidewalk/ stair has had a coat of Super Seal 2000 over 2 times over 4 years. Each time it has gotten a white haze over it. I need to redo now this summer asap. You are claiming that Super Seal 25 gets no white haze. Is this true where the side walk is covered with snow for 4-5 months a year? What do you recommend for this repair? I have been told to apply xylene first. do you agree? Why would I reseal vs apply an… Read more »

Thank You. It is a big job to repair while protecting the bordering plants. Is there a special type of plastic drop sheet that stripper will not melt when power washing off that you recommend?

Hello Scott, What skid additive do you recommend adding to Super Seal 25 to make my steps less slippery? Thanks again, Charlie.

Scott, If I go with Supreme Shield SB-600 so i get the wet look with no gloss, do I still use Super Grip to reduce slip? In reading about Super Grip, the overview says it goes with Super seal 25., Supreme Shield is not mentioned. Also, the overview also say use 2 coats as you suggested but it is unclear. Do I apply the first coat after the strip it without Super Grip and then Apply the 2nd coat with Super Grip? Thanks, Charlie

So, I am putting on a 50 ft stamped concrete walkway in the northern Rockies. So what sure grip product is best to use with SB-600? Or is SB-600 the wrong choice for a walkway that sees a lot ice and snow 5 months a year? If so, is Super Sealer 25 the best choice because I can put a sure grip in it?

Thank you Scott for the quick reply. The product looks like it checked most of the boxes but I’m concerned about the gloss level at 7, sounds pretty shinny. Do you know if there is a small tester bottle for purchase? Thanks again.

I sealed the patio last Fall with the Superseal VOC and it gave a good wet look. The steps looked great too. However, the steps now look like the photo. Any thoughts?

The end (appx 3-4 feet) of my stamped concrete porch is in the sun all the time, and i applied the Superseal VOC Matte with a paint roller. On the sun portion of the porch there are small air bubbles on this area, but not the shaded cooler part.
Can i sand these bubbles and reseal when the weather is cooler, when that portion of the porch is cooler? Or do you have a recommendation please?

I have a paver patio that runs along my pool. I am looking for a sealer that will be non slippery and stabilize the joints. I do not care about a wet look. Any recommendations?

Live in Colorado and we had a stamped concrete patio installed about 6 years ago. I sealed it with SuperSeal 2000 originally and reapplied it a few years later also using SuperSeal 2000. The plan this spring was to add another coat. However, we can only find SuperSeal VOC at our local concrete supply store. Any problems using SuperSeal VOC? Are the applications instructions and results the same? Thanks

I live in central fl, driveway in full sun almost all day. Pavers were seal 4 years ago i think with a water base sealer by a contractor that installed them. water soak’s into pavers so i don,t think anything is left on them. Looking for a wet look with a little shine , what do you suggest? i have seen some driveway with white spots and i don’t want that to happen here. Should i use a water or Solvent base what is better?? Thanks Bob

I live in San Diego, close to the ocean. Our patio is 2 years old. It stamped, with a light gray color. It gets lots of direct sun exposure. The main problem is a fine dust (concrete powder?) that gets tracked into the house. I’m sure that the dust is from the concrete, rather than any roadway or construction sites.
Will a sealant solve the dust problem, and if so, what sealant do you recommend.

The Florida company that installed my cement brick pavers wants to seal them with a “proprietary water based sealant” with a one year warranty. Of course the driveway of 1914 s.f. will be pressure washed first. The total cost is $980. 1. What type and kind of sealant do you recommend for this project? 2. What can I expect to pay for each gallon and how many gallons will I need? 3. I would like a non-slippery finish and need to know whether a matte or shiny finish is best in this instance for a good appearance and safety in… Read more »

I just had a sealer job done on3/29/19. And, just saw your March 2019 posting on your solvents. The cans the sealer came in were only labeled CM Super Sealer VOC. When Workman was asked what kind of solvent was being used for my job, he read from a small label on can and stated it was an oil based solvent. Questions 0) is an oil based paver solvent typical and a safe solvent for brick pavers and People. 1) is this a VOC solvent approved for use in FL. 2) will it be slippery, since this also is on… Read more »

Hi,
I live in Long Island, New York. I have the older Cambridge Armortec flat brick pavers (14 yrs).

1) Will SuperSeal25 be slippery after rain settles on it?

I also have the newer pavers on another driveway which are only 6 months old. They are not flat or smooth as the older pavers.

2) Is SuperSeal25 recommended for these pavers?
3) Is it too soon to apply a sealer?

Thank you
