Textured sealant

New latex sealant simulates concrete, allowing users to achieve more accurate color matching to common surfaces. The formula combines the extension recovery, elongation and durability needed to properly move and flex with heavy trafficked or exposed concrete while providing a long-lasting seal that is resistant to cracking. Its strong adhesion suits use on concrete, mortar, brick, metal, stone, stucco, grout and textured walls. While most latex sealants require a 24-hour dry time before painting, Textured Concrete is ready to paint in two hours.

“Textured Concrete gives professionals an aesthetic and durable repair solution for concrete cracks commonly found in driveways, sidewalks, patios, garages and basements,” says DAP Product Manager Justin Lingenfelser. “Many of today’s sealants do not blend well with concrete and aren’t durable enough to handle heavy foot or vehicle traffic. Textured Concrete is specifically designed to address these needs. Adding to [its] appeal, the latex sealant is easy to apply and clean up. It also has a faster paint ready time than other latex sealants.” — DAP Products Inc., Baltimore, www.dap.com
