Textured sealant

New latex sealant simulates concrete, allowing users to achieve more accurate color matching to common surfaces.

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.
