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/)
Our concrete patio has an acid stain and was sealed with the super diamond clear sealer. Every year we have had to pressure wash it an seal it again because it turns dull and has a white haze to it. We were told we have to strip it and reseal it. Can you tell us what we would need to do to get the shine back and not have to seal it every year?
Typically, sealer becomes hazy due to water beneath the surface of the sealer. Give us a call and we can discuss some options for you. 888-391-2227
How to apply?
Sprayer or roller would be your best bet. We use a 3/8" nap roller.

I have a stamped concrete patio that had the Super Diamond Clear applied about three years ago. Is it safe to apply another coat of the same sealer on it now? I know the surface must be clean. Will pressure washing and scrubbing with a brush be good enough? Or do I need to do more prior to reapplying the new sealer?
Sounds like you have a good plan! You can soften the existing sealer with xylene as an added step, but as a general rule, solvent based sealer to solvent based sealer is good for re-application.
I have an exposed aggregate front porch that was sealed in 2008. When removing a stain this past winter, the cleaner removed the seal from one small area of our porch. If I ensure the porch is free of dust and is dry, can I simply apply another coat of Super Diamond Seal or do I need to strip the old sealant off the porch first? Will the new coat bond to the coat that is already on the porch?
If your porch was sealed with a solvent based sealer previously, you can usually go back over top with a solvent based sealer provided it is clean and dry. You can soften the old sealer by spraying with xylene, and then apply your new coat.
Does super diamond maintain its hi gloss appearance on floors that have heavy foot traffic... or in an area where tables and chairs are moved across the floors daily? Does it show scratches and scuff marks?
I would suggest a sealer that is better resistant to abrasion such as Crystal Clear

Will super diamond clear hold up and be suitable for interior split brick floors?
Yes, however when applied, there will be a definite odor due to the solvents in the sealer, so I wouldn't plan on occupying the space while it cures.

Yes. Assuming it is grouted.

First aid treatment for dogs feet saturated with super diamond clear.
Contact your vet. If the dog hasn't ingested it, you are probably ok, but their feet will be sticky and don't want to have their paws stuck to the floor /ground.
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

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.

Can you tint this sealer?

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
After application onto my driveway how long do I need to wait before I can drive on it?
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).
