Brown-tinted high gloss sealer for exposed and aggregate concrete.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL is a solvent-based acrylic sealer designed to enhance, seal, and protect exposed aggregate concrete surfaces. It will darken the surface and enhance any dull and faded coloring, and protect the surface with a durable high gloss brown-tinted surface film. The Armor AG BROWN SEAL is a fantastic sealer if you are looking to bring out dull and faded exposed aggregate concrete, and enhance them with a brown-tinted high gloss wet look finish.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL is made from high quality, non-recycled, US manufactured resins. It is non-yellowing, breathable, and low VOC. The protective high gloss film will reduce damage and deterioration caused by surface abrasion and water absorption including cracking, spalling, pitting, dusting, and the growth of mold, mildew, and algae.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL is a great choice for a variety of interior and exterior exposed concrete applications, including:
The AG BROWN SEAL is designed specifically for exposed aggregate concrete. Do not apply to loose aggregate or stone.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL is designed specifically to be used on unsealed exposed aggregate concrete. It can also be applied to exposed aggregate previously sealed with a solvent based acrylic. The Armor AG BROWN SEAL should not be used to seal clay brick, red Chicago pavers, flagstone, slate, loose aggregate, or natural stone.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL can’t be applied over any other film forming sealer, other than a solvent-based acrylic sealer. It can’t be applied over a water based acrylic, an acrylic latex, a paint, epoxy, or urethane.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL will darken the surface to bring out the natural coloring the concrete or pavers, and seal it with a transparent brown-tinted high gloss finish.
The actual level of gloss and enhancement received will depend on the type and age of the surface, age, porosity, condition, applicator, application method, and amount of material applied. For an accurate representation of what your surface will look like once sealed, we suggest applying the product to a test area first.
When properly applied, the Armor AG BROWN SEAL can provide up to 1-3 years of life on an exterior surface before the need to recoat, and up to 2-7 years of life on an interior surface.
While the Armor AG BROWN SEAL is designed to out-last and out-perform similar products on the market, there are several factors that can impact actual product life including the severity of surface abrasion and level of foot traffic, the porosity of the concrete or pavers, and the amount of resin build-up on the surface. Some surfaces need to be sealed every year, while others can go a few years without sealing.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL can be applied with a 3/8-1/2” nap roller, or an acetone/solvent resistant HVLP sprayer with Viton seals. For a consistent wet look and high gloss finish, apply two coats spaced 24 hours apart.
Time Of Day
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL should only be applied in the early evening (around 5 PM or later) when air and surface temperatures are declining, and when the sun is no longer positioned over the surface.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL should be applied to a completely clean and dry surface. If the surface was cleaned with water or pressure washed prior to application, allow the surface to dry for at least 24 hours before sealing. While the surface may appear dry and feel dry to touch, water below the surface trapped in the pores can cause the same issues. While pressure washing the surface is typically sufficient, spot treatment may be necessary for deep or older stains.
The Armor AG BROWN SEAL is designed specifically for use on unsealed exposed aggregate concrete, as well as exposed aggregate concrete previously sealed with a solvent based acrylic. Do not apply this product over a surface previously sealed with a water based acrylic, or any other type of film-forming sealer. If the surface is smooth troweled, or does not easily accept water, acid etching may be required prior to applying sealer. It is always suggested to apply the Armor AG BROWN SEAL to a test area to verify absorption, coverage, compatibility, and project suitability.
Adding Non-Slip: For best results, apply the Armor non-slip additive with an appropriate hand-held broadcast spreader. When applying the second coat, add the non-slip additive to the coating using a broadcast spreader, and back roll to encapsulate the non-slip additive.
For complete application instructions and safety data, please refer to the Documents tab.
Porous Surfaces: Up to 175 FT2/gallon in one coat.
Smooth Surfaces (once properly prepped): Up to 200-225 FT2/gallon in one coat.
Coverage will vary depending on porosity, surface condition, application method, and the amount of material applied by the applicator. The above coverage rates are estimates and will vary. Two coats are suggested for even coverage and appearance.
