    Product Description

    Coloured Concrete Sealer is a solvent based, acrylic sealer designed to be used on driveways, pathways, stencil & stamped concrete, warehouse floors, exposed aggregate concrete etc. It dramatically improves clean-ability and maintenance while protecting the substrate from damaging UV sunlight, traffic, dirt ingress etc.

    Available in 20ltrs with a variety of colours and very easy to apply with either a roller or solvent resistant broom. To re-apply, it’s as simple as a high pressure clean, allow the surface to dry and roll another fresh coat over the top. Coloured Concrete Sealer will also accept the Right Choice Non Slip Additive, making it ideal for use in wet areas, driveways and outdoor areas where slip resistance is required. Clean-up or thinning (if required) is with the Right Choice Solvent.

    NOTE – The full colour range is based on standard Colourbond Colours. Unfortunately if a desired colour is not shown then it is not available.

    Please ensure to check the colour of the sealer prior to installation. Once the product has been applied, Right Choice can take no responsibility for any discrepancies in colour variations.

    Coverage Rates

    20 litres will do 2 coats over approximately 60m² – 70m² (concrete porosity dependent)

    Coverage rates will be determined by how porous the concrete is (how easily water soaks in). The easier and quicker that water soaks in, the more porous the concrete is and the more product you will use.

    Surface Porosity

    • Ensure the concrete has sufficient porosity for the sealer to penetrate.
    • Dip a finger into a glass of water and apply 2-3 drops to the surface.
    • Time the amount of time it takes for the water to soak into the concrete.
    • For sufficient porosity to apply a sealer, this should be no longer than 90 seconds.
    • Repeat the test over multiple sections of the concrete substrate.
    • If under 90 seconds then the concrete has sufficient porosity for application of the sealer.
    • If longer than 90 seconds, then it may be necessary to either acid wash or diamond grind the concrete to open it up and create the required porosity.

    General Notes

    • Ensure to read the TECHNICAL DATA SHEET, the PREPARATION GUIDE and the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS thoroughly first.
    • Generally only two coats are required, however on highly porous surfaces then a third coat may be necessary.
    • On very tight (not very porous) concrete, then it may be necessary to do a prime coat 1st with a 25% dilution of the Right Choice solvent added to the product. This helps with product penetration to avoid peeling.
    • It is recommended to do a test patch first to determine the suitability of the product.
    • Ensure that the concrete is a minimum of 28 days old.
    • Do not apply when the ambient temperature is below 15c or above 28c.
    • It is always advisable to apply sealers in the afternoon and in the shade.
    • Do not apply in direct sunlight when the temperatures exceed 28c.
    • The substrate must be cool to touch before applying any sealer or coating.
    • Do not apply if rain is imminent in the following 24 hours of application.
    • Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for coverage.

    PREPARATION:

    Surface Porosity

    • Ensure the concrete has sufficient porosity for the sealer to penetrate.
    • Dip a finger into a glass of water and apply 2-3 drops to the surface.
    • Time the amount of time it takes for the water to soak into the concrete.
    • For sufficient porosity to apply a sealer, this should be no longer than 90 seconds.
    • Repeat the test over multiple sections of the concrete substrate.
    • If under 90 seconds then the concrete has sufficient porosity for application of the sealer.
    • If longer than 90 seconds, then it may be necessary to either acid wash or diamond grind the concrete to open it up and create the required porosity.

    Moisture

    • The substrate must be dry and free from any rising moisture.
    • Ideally use a concrete moisture meter to determine the moisture content. If this is not available, proceed using the method below.
    • To test for moisture, cut a piece of thick black plastic into 1m².
    • Ensure that it is free from any tears or pinholes (this would render the test useless).
    • Attach the plastic to a section of the substrate (repeat in other areas) & duct tape the edges.
    • It is important that the plastic is completely sealed around all edges and free from holes.
    • After 24 hours, remove the plastic. If the concrete has darkened or there is condensation under the plastic, then the concrete is not sufficiently dry to apply a sealer or coating.
    • If the substrate is not dry enough then either wait a few more days & repeat the test or it may be necessary to use a concrete moisture barrier. Contact Right Choice for advice.

    Contamination

    • All substrates must be clean and free of contamination i.e. oil, grease, bird droppings etc.
    • Many of these contaminates are easily removed using the Right Choice Concrete Cleaner.
    • In some cases it may be necessary to use a concrete grinder or a light acid wash.
    • Basically, if water does not penetrate through the contamination then neither will a sealer or a coating.

    Acid Etching

    • If required, the concrete can be lightly acid etched prior to sealing. This will help to create a more porous substrate.
    • Use extreme caution and safe handling methods when using hydrochloric acid.
    • Before acid etching, make sure the concrete is cleaned properly of all contaminants, oil, grease and dirt by using the Right Choice Concrete Cleaner (mix @ 50:50 dilution with water), paying extra attention to heavily contaminated areas.
    • Rinse the Concrete Cleaner off thoroughly with clean water.
    • Dilute the hydrochloric acid with water at a rate of 1 part acid to 10 parts water. CAUTION! Always add the acid to the water, not water to acid.
    • Lightly dampen the surface so that the concrete is slightly wet but not puddling water.
    • Apply the diluted solution evenly to the surface using a watering can or similar.
    • Allow the acid to bubble on the concrete for up to 15 mins.
    • Once the bubbling has ceased, thoroughly rinse the surface off with clean water (abide by local laws for disposal).
    • Neutralise the surface using the Right Choice Concrete Cleaner (mix @ 50:50 dilution with water, highly alkaline). Brush the mixture into the surface and allow it to sit for 5-10mins before rinsing thoroughly with clean water.
    • Allow the surface to dry for a minimum of 24 hours (weather dependant).

    *Note – If neutralising is not done correctly, acid etching can leave a white powdery residue, (calcium carbonate) on the dried surface. This is a fine white dust which can cause problems with adhesion and delamination of the coating. Once neutralising is complete, check the entire surface of the concrete. It should have a uniformed texture similar to medium grit sand paper (If not, repeat the above process). Sprinkle a few drops of water over the surface and If all the water is quickly absorbed, the surface is sufficiently oil and grease free. If the water still beads up (even if only in certain areas), then further preparation as above will be required.

    APPLICATION:

    IMPORTANT NOTE:

    Before applying any product, please open all coloured drums to check that the colour is correct. If there is any variance in colour etc, please contact Right Choice Coatings before proceeding. Once the product has been installed, Right Choice Coatings will not be held responsible for any colour variations.

    • Always wear the appropriate personal protection equipment.
    • Thoroughly stir the contents of the tin whilst adding the entire colour tint pack prior to application.
    • If using multiple batches ie; 2 or more x 20ltr tins, (regardless if it is pre-tinted or a tint pack that is added), you need to follow the instructions below or a colour variation will occur.
    • Make a line on the outside of the tin where it is filled to (after batching you will fill each tin back up to this line)
    • After adding the colour pack to each batch, pour 1/4 of each batch into a clean bucket and mix them all together. Repeat this process back and forth until all batches are a uniform colour.
    • Note: Do NOT mix just 1 batch at a time and then apply as you will get a colour variance.
    • Fill each tin back up to the line previously marked and mix thoroughly again. This is now 20ltrs of tinted product ready for application.
    • Garage Floor Paint should be applied using a 10mm nap roller, sprayer or solvent resistant broom.
    • Pour the sealer directly onto the concrete in ribbons, try to avoid pouring in large puddles.
    • Apply the sealer using the “cross hatch” method. Roll East to West and then roll again North to South (right angles to each other). Use this method for all subsequent coats.
    • Ensure to keep “wet edge” of the sealer to avoid any overlapping or roller marks.
    • Keep to the recommended application rate, do not over apply. Two thin coats are better than a single heavy coat.
    • Allow a minimum of 6-12 hours drying time in-between coats (weather dependent).
    • Ensure the first coat is clean and free of any contamination before applying the second coat.
    • Do not walk on for a minimum of 24 hours and allow 3 days before driving over.

    FAQ's

    • Q – Is it necessary to use thinners in the 1st coat?
    • A – It really depends on the porosity of the concrete and weather conditions. The idea of the 1st coat is to get it to soak in as much as possible. So if you have a very “tight slab” (not very porous), then you would dilute the 1st coat with 30% xylene (solvent) and then do 2 more coats neat. The same if it is hot, dilute the 1st coat for better penetration. If the slab is very porous (water soaks in easily), then there is no need to prime, however you may need to do 3 coats in total.
    • Q – Can I apply the Coloured Concrete Sealer over the top of a water-based acrylic paint or sealer?
    • A – In general, putting a solvent-based sealer (Coloured Concrete Sealer) on top of a water-based sealer is a bad idea. The solvents can eat or soften the existing water-based sealer, destroying both coatings. Think of it along the lines of oil and water; they do not mix.

      Unbelievable product

      Our concrete pagola area was covered with 4 layers of old peeling paint. We spent weeks stripping and pressure washing it, then took a chance on the tinted concrete sealant. It looks incredible! One tin has covered the whole 60sq metre area twice, and it took less than 3 hours total. It was a warm but not hot day and the sealant dried fast. We applied the first coat at noon, did the edges with a brush an hour later, then did the second coat. There were even some areas where stubborn yellow paint had not come off and the sealant has covered them. Highly recommend this product. Easy as pie to use and looks so beautiful. The colour is Terrain. It goes so beautifully with our bricks.

      COLOURED CONCRETE SEALER AND NON SLIP ADDITIVE

      After reading all the reviews we decided to go with Right Choice paint. We had a very slippery path when wet we need to fix at our business building. We needed quality and something that wasn’t a long process. We opted with the coloured concrete sealer with the Non Slip Additive (4kg) that we sprinkled on after a coat of paint then sealed it with another coat of paint about 5 hours afterwards. We had the weather not on our side so we needed to make sure we could do it in a day. We did an acid wash the day before and then swept the path just before be painted it. The result was so great, very happy with the outcome and so is everyone else. We will do another coat when the weather is nicer just to ensure it really lasts but very happy with the easy process and the quality. Highly recommend.

      Great product

      We used this on both our driveway and garage floor and it came up a treat. Have used various concrete epoxies, concrete sealers and paving paints over the years and this one seems to have done the job. We used Monument on the driveway and only had to apply two coats, however we used Windspray on the garage floor and being a lighter colour it took three coats to get an even coverage. Too early to tell if there will be any hot tyre lift off, so far so good.

      Coloured Concrete Sealer

      Bought 20L Right Choice coloured concrete sealer in Windspray colour to cover my patio and walkway around the house. At the same time bought 10L reputable brand from Bunnings in Charcoal colour for my very short driveway. End result – the expensive brand from Bunning bubbled whereas sealer from Right Choice stay intact, formed very good bonding with concrete, definitely a more superior product in compare to reputable brand. The only downside is Right Choice sealers come in minimum 20L. It will be good if it also available in smaller volume like 10L.
      Apart from the good quality, Good service and super fast delivery.

      I rate my experience 4 stars mainly because I wasn’t kept informed/updated in relation to the delivery time. It was by chance I was cutting the grass when the van arrived totally unexpected, my most recent update was my goods we’re to be delivered in the coming days. All good

      I think the product is fantastic
      If you follow the instructions on prep and coating requirements the finish is fantastic
      Far better then the more expensive products you see spruiked by major brands. Coverage is great, grip agent works a treat. 120 m2 of driveway, carport and paths for under $1000 is value given the finished product
