V-Seal Industra-Gloss SB Gloss Scores (1-10)
Wet Look: 9
– V-Seal Industra-Gloss SB gave a beautiful wet look to our stamped concrete patio. This sealer enhanced the red and brown colors extremely well. Exactly what you would expect with a high solid, solvent-based acrylic sealer.
Gloss Level: 9
– We applied 1 coat of the V-Seal Industra-Gloss to our stamped concrete. It applied at 150 sq. feet per gallon and the result was a gloss sheen. We did not bother applying a second coat as it did not need it.
Joint Sand Hardening: N/A
– Does not apply.
Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 7
– This sealer performed fairly well at the t 2-year mark. There was not visible uneven wearing or peeling. The V-Seal Industra-Gloss SB seemed to fade evenly in terms of shine.
White Haze/Yellowing: 4
– This is the only area that the V-Seal Industra-Gloss SB did not perform well. There was a white haze to the surface. It was very noticeable in the areas in full sun and less so where the tables and chairs had been placed.
Overall Score V-Seal Industra-Gloss SB at 2 Year Period: 7.3
– The white haze was a huge disappointment! We really liked the way this sealer looked when applied but having to deal with the blushing, does not make using this sealer worth it. We suspect that being a pure acrylic does not allow this sealer to breathe well. We prefer the styrene-acrylic sealers over the pure solid acrylics.
Looks great when applied but turned white in the sunny areas.
