SuperSeal30 Paver and Concrete Sealer Review 4.7/5 (15)

SuperSeal30 Concrete Sealer

SuperSeal30 Concrete Sealer

Update May 2017

As of 2017, we have found that the Super Seal 30 Gloss is one of the most popular sealers for Stamped Concrete, Brick Pavers and other Decorative Concrete Surfaces. If you have any questions on this product, please ask below in our Q&A area. We are here to help!

SuperSeal30 is a Higher Gloss Concrete Sealer that can be used for many different types of concrete surfaces. SuperSeal30 is very popular for Brick Paver Patios, Exposed Aggregate, and Stamped Concrete. This sealer will darken the appearance and leave a shine.

The SuperSeal30 is a solvent based breathable acrylic sealer.

SuperSeal30 Paver and Concrete Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 10

– SuperSeal30 contains 30% solid content of acrylic. It darkened our 4-year-old paver patio as if wet with water and stayed that way after drying. Enhanced the natural red and brown tones in our paver bricks.

Gloss Level: 9

– The high solid content of the SuperSeal gave our paver patio a high gloss shine. The overall appearance on out test patio was quite rich looking but not too shiny that it looked “fake”. The sealer was slightly slippery for the first couple of weeks when it rained but after full curing, that was not an issue.

Joint Sand Hardening: 7

– SuperSeal30 is very thick in consistency. While it did harden the sand between the pavers, it did not harden as well as some of the water based versions. Due to the thickness of the sealer, it did not penetrate as deeply into the sand. The top 1/2 inch of the sand had hardened.

Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 7

– SuperSeal30 gets our best score when it comes to fading from sun’s UV. It did fade evenly with no wearing. About 70% of the gloss and wet look remained at the 2-year mark.

White Haze/Yellowing: 10

– There was not visible white hazing or yellowing of the sealer after 2 years.

Overall Score SuperSeal30 at 2 Year Period: 8.6

– SuperSeal30 is an excellent sealer for brick pavers and other decorative surfaces. It does what it is supposed to do by adding a rich look to the surface without any side effects. Future maintenance would be easy with a light cleaning and re-coat. We like that it is a breathable styrene acrylic. This greatly reduces any chance of hazing due to trapped moisture.

  1. Jim says:

    I live in Pittsburgh and after reading the comments on Super Seal 30 I would like to try it on my exposed aggregate patio. Where would I be able to buy it over the counter ? Thanks..

  2. janet says:

    Will super seal get rid of haze from sand?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Janet, no it will not. You need to remove the poly sand haze first before sealing. If you do not it will make it worse.

  3. Cheryl says:

    I bought sealer for my recently poured concrete slab. After applying it I realized I wasn't supposed to apply it to broomed finished concrete. It is now "splotchy". Is there any way to fix this? Can I apply another sealer? Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

  4. Alan says:

    Is Super Seal 30 a good sealer for exposed aggregate concrete?

  5. veronika says:

    hi,can I use this on Chicago brick pavers

  6. satisfied says:

    just applied super seal 30 to my 2year old pavers, so far it looks great good quality sealer, thick and appears long lasting

  7. Concrete Sealer Help says:

    Clay, I would not use it. It dries splotchy on regular concrete.

  8. Rick McDaniel says:

    I have a colored stamped concrete pool deck. Last year I used Behr “Wet-look sealer” for concrete. I mixed some non-skid grit (also Behr product) to each gallon of sealer. Rolled two coats and followed their directions. Looked good for about 3-4 months and then noticed it was loosing it’s gloss. Soon I begin noticing white spots throughout the entire deck. Looking closely at these spots, it’s the sealer popping open like a pimple. I’ve contacted Behr and they recommend brushing these white spots and re-coating with the same product. They have offered to provide me with free product. I’m not sure about repeating because I don’t have any assurance it will not happen again. Is there a better product I should be using. Thanks for any suggestions.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Rick, I would not add more of the Behr as it will just make it worse. You need to strip it all off and start over. Not an easy thing to do but can be done. We use a Concrete Sealer Stripper made by Clemons. Once it is removed you can use the SS30.

  9. dee says:

    how does it perform/hold-up on Arkansas stone? Have around pool/porch….thanks

  10. Chris says:

    Sealed my Stamped concrete patio tuesday night, dried nice by morning, looked great…until next day when it was sunny for a1/2 the day and it had thousands of bubbles, now there all popped but looks horrible with all the white spot's

  11. Chris says:

    Can I just reseal it and it will remove the bubble mark's?, where do I buy the solvent?, when my patio was installed we had bubble issues and the installer used a spray to "melt" the bubbles away

  12. donna says:

    Can this product be used on a radiant heat floor?

  13. John says:

    I put on Super Clear Diamond on my lower colored patio and ran out half way through. Looking to order more I found these reviews. Would I be able to put Super Seal 30 on the other half or would it be very apparent ? What would happen if I put super Seal 30 over Clear Diamond?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      It would be best to stay with the Diamond clear. While the two are compatible, you may get a different shine.

  14. eric says:

    I put down super sealer 30 on a tues. let dry for 48 hrs. and it all had a consistent nice shine. i left town on sat morning. before I left town I turned on sprinkler system, when I came home a week later it looks like some areas where water hits the driveway it has become dull and lost the shine. whats the best way to fix these spots and did the sprinkler water cause this .

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      It dull on top that wipes off with a rag or is it white from underneath in color?

      • eric says:

        doesn't wipe off, I got ahold of a lady at the manufacturer, she said use zylene to allow the moisture in those spots to leave and this would fix it

  15. Marvin says:

    Can I put the super sealer 30 on a mcnear belgian cobble paver? I live here in Santa Clara, Ca.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      I do not believe SS30 is allowed in Cali due to your VOC laws. I would contact the manufacturer of the SS30 for some guidance.

      • Marvin A. says:

        Thanks, reason is I tried 2 products already (2 in 1 NANOPAVE sealer and black diamond wet look sealer) to get that "wet look" appearance but still it didn't work. The former only lasted 6 months and now the BD sealer seems like it sealed it but with no apparent gloss to it. I appreciate any help. Thank you !

        • Concrete Sealer Help says:

          Look at the Super Seal VOC for Cali as it is allowed there.

          • Marvin A. says:

            Thanks ! So can I just apply the super seal VOC right away? I applied the BD which is a water based sealant 1 week ago.

          • Concrete Sealer Help says:

            Probably but might want to ask the manufacturer of the SS VOC.

          • marvin says:

            It worked out fine! Superb product! the SS 30 worked on the MCNEAR PAVERS ! I can post pics if possible. I was able to apply the SS30 on top of the water base sealant with no problem at all. Just waiting for the 72 hour period before I can park on the driveway.

          • Concrete Sealer Help says:

            Great! Glad it worked for you!

          • Mark42mc says:

            hi there I just built a backyard paver area with a free standing wall surrounding it and debating on which type of Sealant brand to use looking for the wet and semi gloss look can you help me out on that please thank you

          • Concrete Sealer Help says:

            Look at the Super Seal 30 or the Super Seal 25 for this.

          • marvin A. says:

            by the way I just want to clarify that the Black diamond sealer I was talking was from amazon (… ) because I found a thread regarding a more expensive type which is the BLACK DIAMOND COATINGS.
            Since its not a high end water base sealer, can I apply the SUPER SEALER VOC on top of it? Thank you.

          • marvin says:

            In addition, I applied the BLACK DIAMOND sealer 9/20/14 and half of it seems like its fading already due to high traffic.

  16. Bill says:

    I want to use this product on my stamped concrete patio. When the finished surface gets wet is it slick under foot or is there some sort of non-skid additive in it to minimize that possibility?

  17. RedDog says:

    Good evening… I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the exceptional website and for providing one of the best and most comprehensive set of reviews on (sealer) products in the marketplace. I live in FL, and this is getting to be a very popular option that many resources provide as an option for homeowners. We had a 950 sq/ft driveway, which had never been sealed in the past, and was installed in 2004. So yes…dirty, sun faded and a bit neglected. After a massive powerwash, re-leveling of some of the shifted and sunk-in pavers, re-sanding and then waiting a week for the proper dry-out time (re: of the pavers) between our incessant rains, we just used and applied the Super 30 this weekend. The final results were stunning…and literally has made the driveway look brand new again. A pro quoted $1200 to do this, and after using your site as a benchmark and seeing other options / process to execute online, we decided to do it ourselves. Found a vendor who sold it (Super30) online at $149.99 for 5 gallons (tax and shipping included via UPS…and we ordered x2 – 5 gallon containers), and based on your measurements / need requirements, the 100sq/ft per gallon requirement was spot on. We used a 23inch, 1" 1/4' nap roller from Sherwin Williams and an oversize tray to pour it into and roll from. We know part of the premium a pro charges is because 2-3 coats of this stuff is needed from other manufacturers, but one coat (cross rolled per vendor instructions) gave us superior results. Thanks for providing this info on your site and wanted to leave a review…if someone else is going down the same path we did, and needs some input from one of your readers.

  18. Ron LaBarre says:

    I'm looking for the best wet look sealer for porous clay tile flooring. I'm In Honduras and our local clay tile is beautiful, but I'm having a heck of a time finding which sealer to use! I want a hard, wet look. Help?!

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      This product does not work on clay tile. Not sure what will and give a rich wet look on clay tiles.

  19. Don Francis says:

    I am in the process of completing a patio with old Chicago brick. The brick is a clay based product, used in buildings over the last century. Looking for a premium sealer. the write-up for this product looks very promising. I would like a good sealer as some of the bricks are chipped from being removed. In reading the comments I noticed that there was a recommendation to not use SuperSeal30 on clay tile flooring. What is your recommendation for the brick?

    • Concrete Sealer Reviews says:

      You cannot use this for clay bricks. Sealers like the SuperSeal30 will not dry uniformly on this. It will look blotchy.

      It is made more for normal concrete bricks or pavers. You could test though to see it it dries evenly.

  20. Eric says:

    Can you use superseal30 on a poured, colored patio?

  21. vince says:

    Hi just had a new patio poured with concrete. They broomed brushed it and I decided to stay off of it for 72 hours. Will this work to seal it ? it will get a lot of rain on it since a lot comes off roof . I also wanted to know if I did this to seal it ( I am in Boston MA) so the weather is unreal. Freezing rain, snow, then 50 degrees , then icestorm then snow…lol.Thanks but I may want to stain this next year would sealing it make staining it difficult.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You cannot stain over a sealer. Best to leave unsealed until next year.

    • Vince says:

      Thank you now another question if I wanted to stain it a color what's the best to use ? And if I stain it would I seal it? And what 2 products would you reccommend / great site and really helpful

      • Concrete Sealer Help says:

        Are you sure they did not seal wit when installed with a cure and seal? You have to be 100% postive. Look at the Super Color by Clemons concrete.

  22. John says:

    Used super seal 30 on a new pool deck 8 years ago, put on one coat. Looked great, wet look but not really slippery. Next year applied a second coat, thought it might be a good idea! Did add a brown tint which looked great. Now still looks good, great sealer. Probably need to put another coat on.

  23. John says:

    Will this product work on quarry slate? We just installed it in a three season room on the floor.

  24. Kent says:

    Washed aggregate driveway looks great and last for years

  25. Joel says:

    The best I'm a paver and I highly recommend this sealer

  26. Mark says:

    Can use this product on a Bluestone patio?

  27. SKK says:

    Will this wok for Versalok pavers?
    The patio was installed Nov/Dec 2015. The patio has never been sealed. There is partial direct sunlight on the patio. And we are in Ohio.

    If not this sealer, which which one would you recommend? Thanks

  28. Eric says:

    Hi! Will this work for Flagstone?

  29. devin says:

    Can this product be used on concrete countertops? I am hoping to use a sealer/polish that will darken my countertops and provide a wet look. This seems best suited for the job as long as it is not too toxic. If this would not work, can you recommend a product that will darken and that is food safe? Thank you for any help! This is a great site

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      This is not a polish. You can try a sealer first then use a polish over the sealer. I am not sure it will work. Might want to contact the manufacturer at Clemons Concrete Coatings.

  30. susan meale says:

    How long can this saved once it has been opened?

  31. Bethany says:

    We just created a stacked stone wall with a chiseled front face "Ashland series" (from Lowes). Looks beautiful when I hose it down but very dull when it dries. Will this product work for us?

  32. Eric says:

    could I put this on my old 1959 pinkish red faded brick home, best way to apply it. Thanks

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Not sure if it will dry evenly on the vertical brick. You may need multiple coats. I would ask manufacturer.

  33. Frank. Sanzo says:

    I need 15. Gal. Of sealer supper seal how much ? How do l get it ship to or pick up ?please send e mail.

  34. Frank says:

    can super seal 30 be used on stamped concrete that was sealed with a matte finish. Patio was poured last spring. I don't know what product was used. Thanks for any info.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      If the previous sealer was solvent based and has not discolored, it should be okay. Without knowing what the previous sealer was, it is hard to be 100% certain.

  35. randy says:

    can you add the anti skid powder or flakes to the product?

  36. Cathy says:

    I have a 2 year old stamped, colored patio and used a sealant last year that looked great until it started to get heated from the sun then white spots showed up from the deeper crevices. I power washed the whole patio and used Dawn detergent to wash cement and rinsed well as concrete company advised. It has dried for 2 days now at 50-60 degree temperatures. It is now totally DULL and the brown color seems to appear lighter. What product would you recommend to bring back the gloss and color? Thank you for answering.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You can try to use the Super Seal 30, but your prep did not remove the previous coating. The issue is your spots may return unless you chemically strip off the old coating.

      • Cheri says:

        How do you strip off the old coating? I was told xylene. Please advise.

        • Concrete Sealer Help says:

          Xylene is not a stripper and will not work. Use a stripper designed to remove acrylic based paver sealers. Clemons Coatings makes one that we use.

  37. Rob says:

    Can this be applied over Super Diamond sealer?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      It would bes best to remove the Diamond Clear as the Diamond clear is a solid acrylic and can be prone to turning white/hazing.

      • Dan J says:

        The administrator is absolutely right. My patio had super diamond clear and it is a horrid product. It turned so white and yellow that it looks like my patio is a giant cataract. Removal is a messy nightmare. I used xylene, a deck brush, and a power washer. I'm half done with about 4 hours of work time. I may have to go back and do it again as the SDC is tough to remove.

        BTW: Xylene burns pretty good when you get it on your skin! Learn from my mistake and don't wear shorts. Plan on throwing away whatever clothing and shoes you wear for this project.
