Coat Over Driveway Painted With Xylene Paint?

Aug 14, 2017 -- Posted by : ajpereira

A website visitor from Naples, Florida wrote in to ask if there driveway was painted with Xylene paint, did it need a clear coat over it and, if so, what type of clear coat?

I responded by writing, “They do make clear Xylene-based sealers for Xylene-based paint, however I have never sealed a driveway I have ever painted with a Xylene-based stain. The clear sealers have no UV protection; all of your UV protection is in the paint. I would recommend talking to your local Sherwin Williams paint store manager and choosing a paint color that will hold up well in the Florida sun. It will be the colorants used in the stain that will determine how quickly your paint color will fade.”
