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)

Wet Look: 8

– 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.

Joint Sand Hardening: 8

– Surebond sealers are designed to stabilize jointing sand and the SB-6000 does not disappoint. After saturating the pavers sand with 2 coats of the sealer, the sand was hard to the touch within a few hours. The manufacturer suggests adding the SB-1300 joint sand stabilizing sealer after for increased sand stabilization.

Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 6

– SB-6000 did fairly well with fading. There was no uneven peeling or wearing.

White Haze/Yellowing: 9

– SB-6000 is a breathable sealer so at the 2-year mark there was not any white hazing from trapped moisture. There was a small amount of efflorescence visible in a shaded area.

Overall Score Surebond SB-6000 Sealer Sealer at 2 Year Period: 7.8

– SB-6000 is a very good sealer if you are looking for a wet look with little to no gloss. The sealer applies very easily and is fairly durable. One downside is that it is more expensive than most brands.

Applies easily, fades evenly, and does not discolor.

Is SEK Surebond SB-6000 P Wet Look Sealer Water-Based, Water-Based Polymer Blend Resin, Darkening the best latex sealer for the price? I use it about every 3 years using only 1 coat. Are 2 coats highly recommended? Any thoughts on where to purchase outside of Amazon? I need 2 – 5 gallon buckets… Thanks!

Interior brick walls — plaster removed — 1910 building…….. I just want to double check that this product will be matte……. no shine……. hoping it has little to no “presence” meaning that the bricks don’t seem altered in appearance. Thank you!

Oh yikes! SB-6000 Wet Look Sealer 5 Gallon — DEFINITELY glossy…….. makes the bricks darker………. My concern about a product that has little to no “presence” is now my worst nightmare. Is there anything to get rid of this product on the old bricks????

My mistake………. I wanted a product that didn’t affect the color of the bricks. When I reached out initially, I was asking for something with “no presence.” To clarify: something that doesn’t alter the bricks……. leaves them looking just as they do. And I was hoping for a matte finish. When I use the word matte, I’m thinking of the different sheens of paint that we can choose from at at paint store. Perhaps there is a disconnect between what the terms mean………. and the descriptives we all use to convey the “look” we want. I chose the wrong product…….… Read more »

I bought 15 gallons of Surebond SB-6000 in late 2016 for $634. I applied this to my patio and walkways of Basalite Holland brick pavers. I was looking for a wet, matte look. The product applied easily and looked great when I was done. I just hoped that it would last for a decent while. However, it did not live up to my expectations. It was very noticeably faded in a year, and was pretty much back to its pre-sealer state after 2 years. I live near Redding, CA and we get a lot of sunshine. While this product would… Read more »

OK, thanks. But how does it rate a 6/10 score for “Fading/Wearing After 2 Years” in your review? Should I bother trying something like SuperSeal VOC ?

How long will the unused portion last? I’d like to purchase 5 gallons but only need about 3 1/2. Wondering if the remaining will be ok to use in 2 years

Can I put a coat of sb6000 on an existing paver patio, followed by a coat of sb1300 for a harder joint stabilization? Thanks for your reply.

I want to use this product on brick pavers around the pool – will it make the surface slippery when wet?

I am in the state of Utah in the Salt Lake City area. Winters are harsh and summers are hot and dry. I have just completed a patio with a very hard field stone (I have heard it is the hardest) set with sand. Area = 700 s.f. Several questions? 1) Will SureBond 6000 seal both the stone and the sand in one or two applications? 2) Do I need to use 1300 after the application of 6000 to assure solidity of the sand? 3) If I use 1300 after the 6000 application to further solidify the sand in the… Read more »

I did not use any solvent or cleaner on my pavers. How dry do the pavers have to be before I seal with the 6000 product. Since its water based would ut be a problem if the pavers were semi dry?

After applied how long does it need to dry before you can place outdoor rugs over the pavers? Not just dry time to walk on it but actually cover large areas with area rugs.?

Does this work for very porous, clay, pavers? Will it have a wet look but not shiny?

Anybody have experience with both the SB-6000 and the SuperSeal25 low VOC? How does the wet look between the 2 compares?

I want a wet look, on new pavers, but matte finish, not glossy. Is this the best choice? Also want to use it on cast concrete wall caps, does that work? This installation in the California desert, with lots of hot sun. Used polyermeric sand.

The SB 6000 sealer worked beautifully on my pavers! Looks great, color enhancing without the gloss. Thinking about using it on my stone patios. Any experience with it on stone?

Yes it does!!!! We used this sealer to seal our concrete pavers nest to our pool. My five year old got out of the pool, walked over to the pavers and slipped the second he put his foot on the pavers (he walked across pitted cements for about 2 feet first). Also, everyon says that you get a matte finish, but you do not. It might not be as glossy as the other wet-look sealers on the market, but it is still shiny. Better add some polymer grit additive to your sealer when sealing. This does seem to be a… Read more »
