Extend the life of your pool deck and protect it from chlorine and salt with SEAL-KRETE Clear-Seal Concrete Protective Sealer.

Step 1 Prep & Prime:
Proper surface preparation is critical to the success of all SEAL-KRETE coatings. The surface should be clean, dry, sound and free of dirt, dust, oil, wax and grease. You may need an oil stain remover such as Krud Kutter Oil Grabber to lift stubborn oil stains. Pressure washing is recommended.

Bare Concrete: Concrete must have cured for a minimum of 30 days. Etch smooth-finished concrete (such as basement or garage floors) with a concrete etching solution like SEAL-KRETE Clean-N-Etch. Note: If etching with muriatic acid the area must be neutralized before proceeding.

PAINTED SURFACES: For use over one-part water-based coatings only; not recommended over acid-based stains or oil-based coatings. Freshly painted surfaces must have cured for a minimum of 72 hours. Paint must be sound (not blistering or peeling). Existing painted surfaces should be cleaned with a solution of Trisodium Phosphate (TSP) and water. Rinse well and allow to dry.

Step 2 Apply Sealer:
This product is ready to use; do not dilute. Stir gently; do not shake. Apply in light, even coats. One coat is recommended; however, over porous surfaces (like saltillo tile) or when a higher sheen is desired, apply a second coat. note: Sealer goes on milky white but dries clear.

Roller: Dampen roller, remove excess water, then saturate roller with product. Keep a wet edge while rolling. Do not allow to puddle, foam or run. (Use a 1/4” nap for smooth surfaces, 3/8” nap for rough or porous surfaces.)

Pump Sprayer: Set at a fine spray and apply using a circular motion. To eliminate puddling or to achieve a more uniform finish, backroll immediately after spraying.

Clean with a mild soap and water solution. Do not use solvent-based cleaners.
