    Product Description

    Driveway Paint 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 to dry and roll another fresh coat over the top. Driveway Paint Sealer will also accept the Right Choice Non Slip Additive, making it ideal for use in wet areas and driveways.

    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

    20ltrs 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:

    • Always wear the appropriate personal protection equipment.
    • Thoroughly stir the contents of the tin whilst adding the entire colour pack prior to application.
    • If using multiple batches:
    • 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.
    • Driveway Paint Sealer 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.
