A+ Clear Sealers - Water-Based Clear Acrylic Coatings No. 120 Matte and No. 125 Semi-Gloss

Smart Seal A+ CLEAR SEALERS are water-based acrylic coatings designed to protect and improve the appearance of concrete surfaces. Can be used on concrete pool decks, patios, pavers, aggregate walkways, water features, rock, stone, and much more. Not recommended for wood surfaces or stamped concrete.


  • Provides excellent salt and water protection for patios, sidewalks, pavers, aggregate, stone walls, and pool decks
  • Use on water features
  • Protect against weather, oil and stains
  • Water clean-up
  • Applies milky-white in appearance – dries clear
  • Dries to a matte or semi-gloss finish
  • Requires two coats on most applications
  • Use only Matte finish for foot traffic areas


All surfaces must be sound, dry, clean, and free of oil, grease, dirt, rust, mildew, paint and other foreign substances.


If new, allow to cure 28 days minimum. Remove any loose aggregate, scrub with cleanser, rinse and allow to dry. Apply two to three coats, depending on porosity.


All loose or peeling paint should be scrapped or wire brushed. If paint is severely peeling, remove all old coating. Then prepare as described above. Do not apply over epoxy or unknown finishes.


Use a premium quality 3/8” roller cover suitable for water-based paints. Do not thin. Roll evenly. Do not apply too heavily. Apply when the surface temperature is above 50˚F, and with humidity below 80%. Delay if rain is expected with 24 hours. Spot prime on previously coated surfaces. Two coats are generally recommended. Gloss will be affected by the number of coats and porosity of the surface.
