Why Wet Look/Gloss Sealers will not work on Plain Concrete

We recommend you coat your concrete with a high-quality sealer that will increase the lifespan. Concrete is under constant pressure and withstands a lot of stress from weather, temperature changes, salt corrosion, foot traffic, and cars. When choosing a sealer for your concrete, keep in mind that wet-look and gloss sealers will not work on plain poured concrete, as they tend to dry blotchy and uneven. Wet look and gloss sealers work very well with decorative concrete surfaces such as concrete brick pavers and stamped concrete.

For plain poured concrete, we recommend you use a sealer that does not change the appearance for the best results. Two excellent water repellent sealers we recommend for plain poured concrete are SuperSeal-M or Masonry Saver Heavy Duty Water Repellant. We hear very positive reviews about how these dry evenly and smoothly on plain concrete and do a good job at protecting the surface from weather, corrosion, foot traffic, cars, and more. SuperSeal-M’s active ingredients are a mixture of differently sized particles to best fit different crevices and cracks. It is an ideal sealer for porous substrates such as concrete, providing excellent coverage and water repellency that lasts longer than the competition. Masonry Saver Heavy Duty Water Repellant contains a blend of silanes and siloxanes that create a “salt-shield” barrier, ideal for waterproofing driveways and sidewalks that need extra protection from salt damage during the winter months.

When the concrete is wet around the pool we like the look.( light gray looking when wet) What can I put on this plain stamped non-colored concrete walk area that is also connected to pool coping to enhance the plain concrete to look wet?

We recently had our new pool coping poured. And for some reason the guy didn’t add the color we wanted. So now we have plain concrete around a soon to be beautiful pool. So wondering what sealer we should use to have him apply to the coping? Preferably something not slippery but has a color and step up from concrete. Also How long do we need to wait to put sealer on new concrete?

Is the siloxane sealer good for both concrete and traditional clay bricks? Also, does it help to limit moss growth?
