Update on Wet Look Sealer with No Gloss
Sealing pavers, concrete, and other types of hard surfaces can serve several purposes. Mainly, sealing can protect the surface from weather deterioration and secondly, it can enhance appearance. Surfaces can be sealed without altering the appearance, but some homeowners enjoy the enhanced look. It is personal preference but becoming an increasingly popular choice is a wet look sealer with no gloss.
A wet look sealer with no gloss appears just as the name suggests. The paver or concrete surface looks wet but yet there is no glossy shine to the surface. This look appeals to many people because it enhances the natural beauty of the substrate while adding weather protection.
Supreme Shield SB-600 is out most popular wet look sealer with no gloss. SUPREME SHIELD SB is a solvent-based penetrating sealer designed for stamped concrete, concrete pavers and other porous concrete surfaces. Application of SUPREME SHIELD SB will enhance the color and give the wet look without adding the gloss and plastic look associated with the traditional film forming sealers. Once treated, the surface repels water and oil to prevent staining.
Surebond SB-6000 is a common brand of wet look sealer with no gloss. The manufacturer claims it enhances the natural colors of the surface with a lavish wet look. It is also breathable and will not trap unwanted moisture so it can be applied immediately after the pavers have been installed. As expected from a quality sealer, it increases the structure’s durability while it shields against salt, acid, and other unwanted stains.
If you are looking for a wet look sealer with a satin finish then a sealer like SuperSeal Matte may be what you are looking for. This is a quality sealer that provides water repellency to brick, concrete, and stone surfaces. It leaves a wet look with no gloss but does have a satin finish. This look also appeals to many homeowners who do not want a high gloss finish.
In our opinion, both sealers are excellent choices. They lock out moisture, block wind, deter sun fading, slow joint sand erosion, and enhance the natural beauty of hard surface substrates. For protecting your investment and adding some curb appeal, a wet look sealer with no gloss can definitely be a great choice.
