I opted for the SG+ and sprayed it on. I used a quality sprayer and had no issues with clogging. The finish is amazing. It came out even, and the sheen that was left was outstanding. Ive used other products from various big box stores in the past and they didn't compare to the ease and quality of Black Diamond. They have earned themselves a repeat customer!
Thanks so much for the great feedback! We are so glad that your project turned out amazing! Enjoy the shine!
The finish is beautiful. I opted to use a pump sprayer and the only issue was that the acrylic product did eventually clog the spray handle/trigger mechanism. This was the only problem. In the future I would most probably use a roller and brush. I used a lacquer product (2 coats) on other pavers and have to say that the Black Diamond finish appears superior after the same 2 coats. I will use this again.
Brian, we are so glad that the DOMINATOR SG+ exceeded your standards. Thanks for the great feedback!
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.
