    Default Penetrating driveway sealer

    I have a dark grey coloured concrete driveway and paths which were laid when the new house was completed just under 12 monthe ago.
    I am thinking that a penetrating sealer would be good to enhance the colour, and make the surface easier to keep clean.
    Information on sealers seems pretty sketchy and good advice not easy to find. Manufacturers and their agents will always say that their products are the best, so not really reliable information.
    So I need some help from you guys, who may have some knowledge on this.

    All replies are much appreciated, regards,
    Keith

    I've used Crommelin's penetrating product for pool coping, natural granite, which has lasted really well. Maybe they have a product for concrete

    Used this product for 20 years. Goes on really easy with a roller on a stick is best, drys quickly and wears nice with easy future recoat (years down the track after a pressure wash and dry).

    If you've got a grey/charcoal concrete color, use a charcoal color base and it will really bring it up nice and due to the charcoal concrete will last for many years without noticeable wear and tear. Driveways obviously wear the quickest.

    I've got 250 square meters to do (Driveway, garage, path around the entire house on colored concrete thats never had a colored sealer coat) and this is the stuff I'II be using.....again

    Hi Bart,
    That's about the best advice that I could wish for. We have sellers of Nutech in Adelaide who I can purchase from.

    Many thanks and regards,
    Keith

    Not sure about the claim suitable for vehicles...can't imagine a car sprayed with it

    Sheen is good (subjective )
    From memory I think they produce a mat and semi gloss product.

    If it's truly penetrating, it shouldn't have an effect on the surface's sheen level
