Please feel free to discuss anything related to film forming (topical) sealer protection.

Have a downstairs slate over concrete floor @80sqm around 30years old. I am not sure what if any sealers from previous owners have been applied. Floor looks flat and dull with some minor areas of sheen here and there.:(
Would prefer a wet look semi-gloss finish and have spotted the CSW Topical Water-based Sealer. Is it suitable for the above described inside a home slate floor scenario? I am hoping that a good vacuuming and mopping with detergent and drying would be suitable preparation.   Also a stamped concrete covered patio (@30sqm laid in 2009) adjacent to this area would also look good with same product. The colouring of slate and stamped concrete are an earthy deep green with black highlights. How much product and is it the best suited to the described scenarios? Much appreicated Andrew

Hi Andrew,
>Would prefer a wet look semi-gloss finish and have spotted the CSW Topical Water-based Sealer.
Simply due to the nature of carriers, a water based topical sealer will present a sheen to semi-gloss whereas a solvent will present a semi-gloss to gloss with deeper highlighting.
>Is it suitable for the above described inside a home slate floor scenario?
Yes absolutely, especially since the VOC levels are below detectable levels.
>Also a stamped concrete covered patio (@30sqm laid in 2009) adjacent to this area would also look good with same product.
Yes, product is UV stable so can be used internally or externally.
>How much product and is it the best suited to the described scenarios?
Each 15L will cover approx 50sqm @ 2 coats so to cover entire 110sqm area would require 2 X 15L drums.
