Just applied 2 coats of Dominator SG+ paver sealer to my porous, 20 year old, badly faded concrete pavers. I was hesitant to spend the $$$ for the Dominator product but my research indicated it was what I needed. Coverage rate for the first coat was 170 square feet per gallon. The second coat covered 400 square feet per gallon. The white milky color of the product when applying made it easy to maintain a consistent and full coverage rate. Had a nice breeze the day I applied it but an hour after the first coat, the surface was still sticky. I called Black Diamond to inquire about putting on the second coat before it was completely dry. Great customer support. I received a return call within 30 minutes telling me the second coat should be applied while the surface was still tacky. I am amazed at how nice my paver patios look. Brought back the color when they were new plus a nice shine. If this sealer wears as good as it looks I would give it 10 stars. The white color makes installation easy, brightened and restored my faded pavers, easy clean-up, and a nice shine. I wish I would have taken a before and after picture.
Ken, we are so glad that this product worked perfectly for your project! Thanks for the great feedback!
It is water based. Much easier spray application and clean-up than solvent based sealers. Exc sheen. Too early to judge longevity.
Ordered 2 five gallons at separate times. First order was fine. Second order had a leak in container. I was able to salvage about 4.5 gallons out of it though. Not blaming Black Diamond, probably happened in shipping. Other than that product works excellent. I’d wait about a week before driving on it though. Takes a few days to cure.
I purchased Dominator SG high gloss commercial grade. The verdict is still out since its only been on the pavers a couple of months. Looks good, repels water and holding up well but will do a follow up at end of summer. Takes time to dry, especially in shaded areas. I was able to walk on mine after 48 hrs yet some areas were still a little tacky. I thought the cost was on the high side. However, if I get 2 or more years without mold and mildew it will be worth the cost to me.
Recently purchased 3-5 gal buckets of Paver Sealer directly from Black Diamond. Customer service was fantastic and I found the video’s on and linked from the website very helpful for proper application of the product. Importantly the Black Diamond web site has all the information needed to be able to apply the product properly with all the necessary tools needed listed. If any questions customer service is very responsive and will advise you in the application process for your particular application. The product applies easily and looks absolutely great, brought my 10 year old Florida papers back to life and the SG+ puts a very nice gloss on the driveway, patio and side walk. Good Stuff!
Thanks Kenneth for leaving such great feedback. We are so glad that you found our website to be so informative. We hope you enjoy your patio space, just in time for the summer!
