GhostShield 8510 Concrete Sealer is an improvement to the GhostShield 8505 product line and will be available on the same page shortly. SO what is the big deal? Ghostshield took what is perhaps the best concrete sealer on the market and made it better. TIn technical terms, they used solvent as the carrier instead of water. They managed to use a low odor, low VOC solvent that is legal in all 50 states!

Thanks for your help through this process. Here is what we did, and my (albeit inexperienced) thoughts:
• Light shot-blast followed by a grind
• Removed all dust
• 1 coat base color (3 gallons plus the pigment covered/837 sq ft)
• 7 lbs flake
• 1 coat clear (just under 3 gallons used, mixed with 24 oz anti skid)
