QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can this product be used to seal a below grade foundation?
We would not reccomend using this product for sealing below grade. This is a sealer for decorative concrete giving a gloss finish. For basement walls, i would suggest Lithi-Tek 9500 (https://www.concreteandcurbingsource.com/collections/ghost-shield/products/ghostshield-lithi-tek-9500-concrete-sealer-densifier).
For a true foundation sealer, contact us by phone or email for a quote on Tamoseal Foundation Coating (https://www.euclidchemical.com/products/construction-products/waterproofing-dampproofing/waterproofing-dampproofing/tamoseal-foundation-coating/)
What is the cleaning process
In most cases, a good power washing is good enough to get the contaminants off the surface. In some cases, you will need to use a stripping solution.
What sprayer do you recommend to apply Super Diamond Clear. Cheap sprayers don’t work.
A metal concrete sprayer, like a Chapin 1949
where is Super Diamond Clear available in Ohio or West Virginia?
Due to VOC restrictions imposed in Ohio, super diamond clear is not availabile there. We can however ship to West Virginia.
I placed Super Diamond Clear on my large new exposed agg patio 2 years ago. We get heavy snow and cold in northern Idaho. Is it too soon to give it a second coat? I also plan to put a hot tube on one end of the patio and thought it would be good to give it another coat before I place the tub? Also, now long does it take to ship to me in Idaho zip 83858? Thx
You can definitely apply another coat, just need to make sure it is clean so the coat will adhere to the existing. It also definitely wouldn't hurt to put a coat down before your hot tub goes in.
A pail will take about 3 days to get there.
where can I buy Super Diamond

Can you tint this sealer?
Absolutely. Check out the Universal Color Packets
Can I still seal concrete that was poured a year ago?
Absolutely. Make sure it is clean and dry , and you're good to go!
Can the sealer be applied by a roller?
Yes. We reccomend a 3/8" nap, solvent resistant roller.
How long does it last typically, how often do u need to reapply it?
The answer to that depends on a few things What is it being used on, what kind of traffic it sees and what kind of elements it is exposed to. In short , we recommend resealing each year for most exterior applications
I had someone put this on my driveway but now it looks like swirls and he did not powerwash before. What can I do? The concrete looked great before but we wanted to make sure it kept it that way. Now I am upset with the outcome.
How did they apply that they got swirls?
You can re-liquefy the sealer with solv-kleen which can help with roller marks and bubbles. If that doesn't work, you might be looking at removing the sealer and starting fresh. The driveway definitely needs to be clean before applying sealer

6 to 10 hours

Can I use this on garage floor
Yes, but a better solution would be Siloxa-Tek 8510. It is a penetrating sealer that is salt and oil resistant.
Does the finished product become slick with snow or ice? Using product on exposed aggregate.
It will be a bit slick when wet. You can add shur grip to the sealer to add traction without affecting appearance shur grip
Would this be something you'd recommend using on a basement floor to make it easier to clean and prevent breakdown of the floor?
We would reccomend a penetrating sealer such as our Ghostshield Siloxa-Tek 8510 (https://www.concreteandcurbingsource.com/collections/ghost-shield/products/siloxa-tek-8510)
I had a partial one gallon can of diamond clear in my garage. Age unknown. Gave it to my aunt to cover a cement angel she received. She painted the entire angel with the contents (which had become black over time). She called me today asking what to do because her angel is black and looks awful. Thoughts?
The sealer was black or the angel was black? Either way, i would strip the sealer off using Uni-Stripp and once all of the sealer is removed, wash the angel to remove any other dirt or mildew left behind. If the black is gone and the angel is clean, i would then re-seal with new sealer.
Is it possible to add a color to this sealer for a driveway and sidewalks? If so, what type of color?
Absolutely! You would want to look at the Universal Color Packs (https://www.concreteandcurbingsource.com/collections/sealers/products/universal-color-packs).
