New Sealers Made for Concrete, Wood


Black Diamond Coatings (Tampa, FL) has introduced a new line of sealers formulated for use on a variety of substrates, including concrete, pavers, stone and wood.

The Aqua-X line includes four distinct products designed with water repellant properties, the company says.

All four, the company says, dry fast and bead quickly, and are resistant to UV damage. The Aqua-X sealers are also billed as low-VOC.

The new line features the following:

  • Aqua-X 11 is a clear concrete sealer, recommended for use on new concrete; it can be used on concrete block, clay pavers, grout and other surfaces as well.
  • Aqua-X 22 is recommended for use on concrete block, decorative concrete, brick pavers and grout, and can be used on bare concrete as well—the company recommends it specifically for use on wet-cast pavers.
  • Aqua-X 33 is designed for use on natural and faux stone, and clay pavers.
  • Aqua-X 44 is made for use on natural and composite wood, and, the company says, it protects the substrate from freeze-and-thaw damage. An epoxy coating or paint can be added on top of Aqua-X 44 if desired, Black Diamond says, but the surface won’t accept a stain or another sealer on top of the Aqua-X layer.

Commercial Grade

The Aqua-X line is commercial grade, created with contractors in mind, according to the manufacturer. The sealers come in 1-gallon and 5-gallon containers, and are available via special order in 55-gallon barrels.
