Drive is a hardwearing solvent based clear sealer designed to enhance and protect concrete, including stamped and stencilled driveways, exposed aggregate, coloured concrete, clay brick and concrete pavers and slate. Drive dries to a high gloss ‘wet look’ clear finish and provides a smooth washable surface, protecting from stains, spills and reducing the ability of moulds, algae and lichen to discolour the surface. Drive is a UV stable solution acrylic with excellent optical clarity and is designed to provide many years of service. Drive is well suited to protecting new surfaces or restoring aged and faded concrete, stencilled and stamped concrete. Trials have shown Drive has excellent resistance to hot tire marking, oils, fuels and other stains. Drive is non-yellowing and enhances colour and substrate appearance.
Re-sealing every 18 - 24 months is recommended to keep your concrete looking great.
A simple moisture test is to tape a small square of cling film or plastic to the concrete and leave for an hour or so. If there is no condensation or moisture the surface is generally safe to seal. Note that in colder temperatures, moisture may not be evident.
Hand held sprayers are prone to breakdown as rubber and plastic parts soften as they encounter the solvent.
Apply in well ventilated areas only.
The use of glasses and gloves is recommended to protect the eyes and skin during application.
Drive cures and hardens as the solvent evaporates from the coating. In hot temperatures rapid drying can be problematic and we recommend application early in the day to avoid hot surfaces.
Additional solvent can be added to assist application over hot surfaces or in hot conditions.
Gloss levels are affected by cleaners and other environmental factors and a loss of gloss is to be expected over time, although the sealer will continue to protect your concrete.
Avoid washing cars or using waxes or detergents on your sealer as these may lead to build up and make re-sealing more difficult.
