Concrete countertop sealers

I recently did (was talked into) re-coating a raised fireplace hearth. I used Mapei Mapecem Quickpatch to go over the existing slab. I acquired this product on accident and figured this would be a good use for it.

I need to seal it with something. The homeowner wants something that will enhance the finish as it dried a little light. I tried Miracle Seal & Enhance in a test spot but it doesn't seem to do a lot. I think the finish is too porous for it.

Does anybody have any experience with this product? http://www.amazon.com/Cheng-Concrete.../dp/B003YM5LH8

Or can anyone recommend something that might work? I'm thinking a wax type product would work nicely.

In the bottom photo, the entire slab dried the lighter color.

Thanks in advance.

Jim, I've used that product a couple of times for misc. repairs, seems to work nicely, goes off quick though. I've not used the carnuba wax but the Quickpatch will apparently take a variety of stains and sealers.

The data sheet:
• Mapecem Quickpatch can be colored with iron oxide pigments and liquid color packs. Verify compatibility before use. (too late for that).
• Mapecem Quickpatch is compatible with most sealers, dyes and concrete stains.

• When leaving Mapecem Quickpatch as an exposed wear surface seal with Mapefinish Wet Look or an alternate water-based sealer as soon as 3 hours after material dries (when temperatures are above 70°F [21°C]). If a solvent-based sealer is used, allow the Mapecem Quickpatch application to dry for 7 days before application of the sealer.
