Hard to believe, did you look in the area where the concrete was sold and also in the paint dept. or just ask.
May I ask why you think you need it. I've never heard of anyone sealing exposed ag. since it's mostly stone and it does not need sealing.

Would first have to know which type of so-called (exposed ag) you have.

Is it exposed ag in a cement matrix?
Or is it exposed ag in an epoxy fill? (Commonly referred to as chattahoochee).

Indoors or out?
Why are you wanting to seal it?

regular exposed aggregate on concrete, LOL never heard of different types.
why sealer, you always have to re seal your concrete, little rocks, pebbles are exposed but the rest is concrete..

and I was trying to give it the tan color look to it... like this product

Okay let's slow down for a minute.

Is that a photo of your driveway or is that just an example you copied from some website.

"Regular exposed aggregate" ON CONCRETE and "regular exposed aggregate" IN CONCRETE are two entirely different products with two entirely different requirements.

I see epoxy-rock.

So you already had a concrete driveway and later someone added the rock to the top, is that correct?

Now see there is a difference. If that is what that is that is one fine looking installation.

That being the case there are people here that do that type of work every day. We'll let them make a recommendation. I doubt they are going to recommend a brand sold by Lowe's and Home depot but we'll see.

I had another company pour exposed on my pool decking, but its side by side with my covered patio, the other company poured grey and the one as you can see in the picture is more of a gold brown color, not sure if it was just sealed after the installation using some sealer with color, home depot sells one labeled for exposed aggregate semi transparent sealer with brown color.. but not sure if the concrete was already mixed with a color ..
