Best used where a high gloss or wet look finish is desired to enhance and darken the substrate.
When you are looking to bring out the colors and textures of a substate with a clear, non-yellowing finish the 5505 is an excellent choice. Since the 5505 is solvent based, it is the longest lasting sealer in the Cryli-Tek line. The 5505 can be applied to a substrate that has been previously sealed as long as the previous sealer was a solvent based acrylic. Keep in mind acrylic sealers do not last as long as penetrating sealers and may need to be reapplied more frequently.
One thin, even coat of the 5505 is applied with a 3/8” nap solvent rated high quality roller.
The 5505 may be slippery when wet. The Grip-Tek 250 slip resistant additive can be mixed in to the 5505 for added traction. If the wet look finish of the 5505 is too shiny the Matte-Tek 5000 may be added to reduce the gloss.
Best used where a satin or low sheen finish is desired. This low VOC, water based sealer will not enhance or darken the substrate but will give it a subtle shine.
We took all the best attributes of the 5505 - clear, non-yellowing, UV stable and made it into a satin finish water-based formulation. It is not overly glossy or shiny but will keep the patio protected from weathering while remaining breathable.
The 5500 is water based and VOC compliant in all 50 states making it a great option in areas with strict VOC laws.
One thin, even coat of the 5500 is applied with a 3/8” nap high quality roller.
