    Have you used Diamond Shield? Do you like the results of the additive compared to what you have used in the past.

    junk, garbage, snake oil, sorry, did i say that out loud? i tried some. i tried a mix of diamond shield and my mix right next to one another. october, probably 55 degrees, in the shade. my mix dried faster, but both took over 24 hrs to dry. wanna make sealer dry? put it down in the sun. there are other additives that will cure sealer faster too, but there is no magic additive that will make sealer dry faster in less than ideal conditions. from what i understand diamond shield also has acid in it. thats not good for metal tanks.
