Need advice on stamped concrete sealer

I'm looking to seal my stamped concrete driveway; my neighbourhood Form and build store carries this brand:

CIPADECK PAVER & CONCRETE SEALER SEALER (LS) GLOSS FINISH
Google search doesn't come up with anything definitive on this product. Has anyone here had experience with this sealer? In the video the guy doesn't even roll it, just sprays it on, which is a puzzle in itself as I assumed these types of sealers should be rolled right after for uniform, thin application.

I've used WR Meadows Hiac Plus sealer, also purchased from Form and Build. You can apply it with a sprayer but you'll use a lot more of the product (and it ain't cheap). I normally apply it with a foam roller.

Yes, I used WR Meadows Hiac Plus last time and I liked it - just as you did - but I was wondering if this product may be better.

I would recommend sticking with the same type used last time.
We have 2000 sq. ft. which we are now in the process of stripping - a long process.
Certain sealers aren't compatible and may result in blushing (peeling or flaking)

Thanks shepkraft, will heed your advice.

Does anyone know where to buy WR Meadows Hiac Plus in Vaughan or Richmond Hill?

You said you had a "neighbourhood Form and Build" so they should carry Hiac Plus as well.

I've been using WR meadows Hiac Plus for about 10 years now. Buy from Form & build and I only use their sprayer to apply it, never a roller as rollers could leave streaks. My driveway gets sealed every year and the walkway once every 3 yrs.

Didn't say using a sprayer was bad just that you'll end up going through more material.

I've been using a roller and have had no streaking issues.
