The sealer was applied with a 9"- 3/8" nap roller on outside stamped concrete in one coat.. It covered very easily and took less material than the manufacturer indicated. I followed a previous raters suggestion and waited until the portion of the patio that received sun was shaded. I plan to apply another coat to that portion with the excess material resulting from the coverage issue.The patio looks better than it did when new about 4 years ago. I hope to report that the patio still retains its wet look in a subsequent rating a year from now.
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Looks High End, Dries Quickly
Easy to apply. Follow instructions when applying. Make sure the humidity is low the day you apply if outside. High humidity makes the sealer string. Makes the acid stain concrete look totally different when applied.

Far, far better than the waterbase sealer we've used previously. This stuff is the real deal! We didn't really notice the smell problem others have mentioned, but we were using it outside, sealing the concrete slab around our pool and all our new retaining walls and stepping stone pathways. The product went on easily with a paint roller on a pole. We used the large-size roller trays. Following directions, we applied it and then every 5 feet or so we went back and rolled in the opposite direction to even it out. Went on beautifully and dried quite quickly. Brought out the colors in the stepping stones and in the concrete. We applied a second coat 2 days later to all the stepping stones to protect them from the dogwood berries which make terrible red stains on untreated surfaces. This seemed to solve the problem. When it rained, we were thrilled to see the rain beading up on the surface. When it needs refreshing (hopefully not for several years) we will definitely be re-applying this same product. Wouldn't use anything else now. We're sold on Eagle Gloss Coat.

Concrete slab, retaining wall and pathways treated with Eagle Gloss Coat
Easy to use with a roller. Apply generously but don't get it excessively thick in areas or it will bubble while drying. As always, two or more coats is better than one thick one. Some of my stamped concrete had begun to sun fade because the clear coat had worn out. I used a water-based "TiqueWash" to restore and even-out the stamped concrete stain. After letting the TiqueWash dry overnight I followed up with two to three coats of the gloss clear coat. My stamped concrete looks as good, or maybe even better, than new. The TiqueWash comes in quite a few different colors. I used "Seasoned Earth" to enhance the dark areas and blend everything together. I'm not selling TiqueWash I'm just a happy customer.

I just put down the second coat yesterday and this morning it looks great. My previous sealer was xylene based so I prepared by using some diluted krudcutter and a stiff brush followed with a pressure wash. I didn't want to remove the lid so I emailed the company about stirring it up. I was told the clear is not required to stir, but I did gently roll the can back and forth a few minutes prior to use. I poured some into an over sized metal paint pan with a metal paint roller grate. I used a polyester 9" 3/4 nap first coat and 1/2" on the second. The day I put down 1st coat temp was 60s over cast and about 75% humidity. The remnants of old sealer melted in with the new, it dried very nice. Second coat went down yesterday, similarly 60s and overcast 65% humidity. This morning I am very impressed with how it flowed and cured up. The night dew didn’t affect it. Nice shine brought out the color which I thought was lost to the Florida sun. I would not use indoors as vapors are very strong during the process.

Easy to apply and looks great! Used about half of the bucket to apply 2 coats on patio, 360 sqft of cement molded cobblestone pavers. Definitely need to wear respirator when applying and make sure windows are closed! Wouldn't apply inside without the proper ventilation or respirator!
Love the easy application, uniformity and the fact that it's oil base rather than water. Have used water based sealers in past and this product is 10 times better. Depending on your concretes condition, you may have to apply a second coat. Not a big fan of 'gloss' for outdoor applications and wish product also came in a satin or matte finish for that environment. Other than that, highly recommend this sealer even though it's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Bottom-line: Happy customer.

I bought this product to seal pavers, and bring out the color. It went a bit further than I thought it would. I had 816 sq ft of pavers to seal, and it took about 3/4 of a 5 gal pail to cover it. I bought two pails. It is expensive, but many competitors cost more. It is a xylene product, so it must be treated as a product with a petroleum base - which I prefer. I applied it with a paint roller with a medium roller, and that seemed to work well. So far I am happy with the look and result. Time will tell how long it holds up.

Bought this to seal pavers and concrete. Although is is rated as glossy the results very with the surface of the material. Had some painted concrete and it has a light glossy sheen but not very shiny. Had large area of pavers to seal and it did not get the glossy appearance either but had a good seal. After we applied it, we had several people stop and ask about the product. Our pavers had a light glossy texture on the driveway and it was noticeable since the other driveways in the neighborhood have faded over time. It is a good product and we will probably reseal in a couple of years with it. We were pleased with the results. Just do not expect a super glossy look with completed. It dries in a couple of hours to walk on, but wait a couple of days before driving on it. There is a loss of shine over time but it remains a good sealer.

I've used this product a few times before. Like most driveway sealers if you really want it to look nice you have to do it every year. Three valuable points I've learned are, power wash and clean well before applying, don't apply over a water base product unless that product has been completely removed or it will stay a creamy white (to a certain degree. Third if applying on stamped concrete (not so much on exposed aggregate and I don't know why) but don't do this in sun or even if the sun comes out during the drying period. Bubbles will form. Best is to apply in the evening when no direct sunlight and let it dry over night.

Ok. I am a little retentive when it comes to house projects for the average DIY-er. In this case, I decided to re-color/stain/seal my 2,400 SF stamped concrete driveway. Before I started, I spent some $200 on "samples" of all kinds of concrete wet-look sealers only available on the commercial (as opposed to retail) markets. In the end, this Eagle product was only 1 of 2 products that both penetrated to restore the original color but also dried with an excellent "wet look" sheen. It was also significantly less expensive than all the others. So, I opted for the Eagle brand and I am glad I did. My driveway was 7 years into fading in the extremely hot, 12 hour-a-day direct Texas sun. It was completetely faded. It now looks better than new after just 1 coat. I can only imagine how good it will look after a second coat (I've opted to wait 3 days). My neighbors are in awe .... wanted the name of my contractor. Application: PREP IS EVERYTHING!! First, make sure you powerwash and powerwash well. Be aware that if you don't powerwash evenly your "strokes" from the powerwasher's nosel will show when you apply the sealer. Also, be sure it is extremely dry before applying the Eagle sealer. Second, ONLY APPLY IN COOL TEMPS! Do NOT apply in the heat of the day or it will blister and you don't want that. Third, don't spray but rather roll with a 3/8" nap roller and don't be afraid to lay it on thick. My concrete was very, very porous and it drank it up like water. So, it covered at about 170 SF per gallon but be aware: no concrete is alike chemically so your coverage may be completely different depending on the porosity of your concrete. Note: Dry to walk on within 2 hours. Ready for re-coat after the same - even in the Houston-area humidity of 80%-plus when the sun goes down. Other comments: Not available in the store, but ships free to your house. Allow a 10-day lead time from order to delivery (and there is not any way to expedite - Home Depot won't do it and they would not allow me to pay for expedited shipping so use this lead time for prep, etc.) However, you will also need a separate 5-gallon bucket - it comes in a metal 5 gallon container without a handle! . Plan on using a new roller every 200 feet or so - it applies much more effectively using a fresh roller. Also, do not step in wet/undried sealer because this stuff is VERY strong chemically and it WILL melt any sole on whatever shoe you are wearing (I made the mistake once and now have a size-12 imprint on my concrete!). Finally, if you are sensitive to paint smells, wear a mask because make no doubt about it - this odor is very strong. I'm an old hippe - after about an hour I felt like I did a few times back in the late 60's and early 70's! So, trust an old hippie. Buy it. Follow the directions. You will be pleased. I will post a follow up in 6 months regarding how well it holds the wet look, whether it fades/yellows, peals, etc., etc. Pics don't do the end result justice. Kudos to Home Depot for having the product available - it's the best on the market, both retail or commercial.

I applied this produce to my acid-stained concrete basement floor. The sealer went on easy and looks good. I did 2 coats. The only negative thing I can say about this is the fumes are extremely strong. I had read that they were, but still underestimated how potent they are. Despite all windows open and an industrial sized fan blowing air downstairs, our house still smells. If you're considering using this product for your basement, just be aware of this. If I could do it again, I'd probably go with a sealer that isn't solvent based.

Much better than the other concrete sealers I've used in the past few years. With the others, I've felt like I was just pushing the sealer around with a roller until some of it finally stuck. That poor application performance translated into poor long-term performance. This product was different. It seemed to glide on and grab the concrete very easily. It sealed smoothly and uniformily. I only applied it a month ago, but early signs seem to show much better sealing than the other sealer had given.
Coverage was almost exactly as labeled on the can.
Pros: coats easily and smoothly, extremely effective at sealing (water beads well)
Cons: smells for quite a while, don't even bother to try to clean your application tools
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Good Protection
This is the second time that I have purchased this product. These sealers seem to be thinner than they used to be, but still better than the water based ones. Works well, but don't apply in direct sunlight or the sealer will bubble.
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Good Protection, Looks Great
I was concerned that the gloss would be too shiny or make it too slippery. I applied it with a large sprayer and like the product. Applied on a new paver driveway and rock veneer on house. Really give the rock veneer pop and makes the colors stand out.
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Looks High End
This product is great! It even covered up all my efflorescence and made my 8 year old pavers look new again….with an incredible shine!! I bought a professional heavy duty sprayer on amazon, and it worked great!! This was the first time I sprayed my lanai, I've rolled it in the past, which took hours!! This was quick and well worth the money!!
