UltraSeal UV Resistant Gloss / Mat Sealer


UltraSeal UVR

UltraSeal UVR is a high performance, fast penetrating, solvent or water based coating, which produces a hard clear film, with a gloss finish. It is NON-YELLOWING and exhibits excellent resistance to weathering, carbonation, water, alkalis, corrosive fumes and most dilute acids.  UltraSeal UVR is enhanced with the addition of UV absorbers to maximise protection from ultraviolet light and extend service life.

Add colour to your concrete

By choosing a colour from our range of coloured sealers you can certainly make your driveway more interesting, or maybe co-ordinate the colour to match your house.  Has the existing colour of your driveway faded or worn away over time? Coloured UltraSeal UVR will put that colour back, making your drive look as good as new.

Accidents Happen

By the very nature of your driveway having vehicles either passing over it or parking on it, the chances that it will become soiled by oil, rusty water or tyre marks are certainly high.  Coloured UltraSeal UVR can overcome most of these problems, hiding those unsightly marks and stains.

Resistant to stains

Protect polished concretePolished concrete patios have the look of elegance, they are great when entertaining on a warm summer evening with the BBQ and a glass of wine.  You can now protect the surface from stains caused by oil, food or wine with UltaSeal UV. The coating forms a barrier so that anything spilt on the concrete can simply be wiped away without any staining of the polished concrete.

No more rising damp

UltraSeal UVR is ideally suited for application to concrete and masonry surfaces both indoor and outdoor, as an anti-dusting coating and to seal porous surfaces against water permeation and rising damp when applied in multiple coats.
