Drive is a hard-wearing solvent based clear sealer designed to enhance and protect concrete, including stamped, patterned and stencilled driveways, exposed aggregate, coloured concrete, clay brick and concrete pavers and tiles, and *slate.

Drive dries to a high gloss ‘wet look’ clear finish and provides a smooth washable surface, protecting from stains, spills and reducing the ability of moulds, algae and lichen to discolour the surface.

Drive is a UV stable solution acrylic with excellent optical clarity and is designed to provide many years of service.

Drive is well suited to protecting new surfaces or restoring aged and faded concrete, stencilled, patterned and stamped concrete.

Trials have shown Drive has excellent resistance to hot tire marking, oils, fuels and other stains and, as such, will make an exceptional sealer for concrete garage floors. Drive is non-yellowing and enhances colour and substrate appearance.

Drive is a solvent based sealer and is not compatible with water. The presence of water in the substrate may result in a cloudy finish as moisture is trapped under the coating during curing. Even if the concrete looks dry, there may still be significant moisture within the concrete. High humidity may also cause moisture problems. A moisture test is strongly advised.

A simple moisture test is to tape a small square of cling film or plastic to the concrete and leave for an hour or so. If there is no condensation or moisture the surface is generally safe to seal. Note that in colder temperatures, moisture may not be evident.

- test areas should ideally be in direct sunlight and left longer in cooler conditions.


Spray equipment may be used for larger projects but electric or petrol motor driven spray equipment should be avoided unless designed for use with flammable liquids due to the risk of fire.

Hand held sprayers are prone to breakdown as rubber and plastic parts soften as they encounter the solvent.


Apply in well ventilated areas only.

Drive is highly flammable - take all precautions to ensure no ignition source is present when applying.

The use of glasses and gloves is recommended to protect the eyes and skin during application.


Drive cures and hardens as the solvent evaporates from the coating. In hot temperatures rapid drying can be problematic and we recommend application early in the day to avoid hot surfaces.

Additional solvent can be added to assist application over hot surfaces or in hot conditions.


Re-sealing every 18 - 24 months is recommended to keep your concrete looking great.

Stamped, stencilled or coloured concrete requires regular sealer application to reduce wear patterns in high traffic areas.


Acrylic sealers will wear over time, and product life is dependent on a wide range of factors such as the amount of traffic, temperatures, rainfall, age of concrete, etc.

Gloss levels are affected by cleaners and other environmental factors and a loss of gloss is to be expected over time, although the sealer will continue to protect your concrete.

If your concrete has been well maintained, you will maximise the lifetime and look of your job. Remove stains and spills as soon as possible to maximise the life of your sealer.

Avoid washing cars or using waxes or detergents on your sealer as these may lead to build up and make re-sealing more difficult.
