Protects materials from water
Being water based this has low odour and is easy to clean up. However on some surfaces it can be harder to apply compared to the old solvent based formulation.
With porous materials like concrete, brick and mortar is it quite easy to apply this water sealer as it just soaks in. However when trying to apply it to vertical wooden surfaces you'll find it will run off before soaking in resulting in huge wastage. This is because wood has some natural oils and is less porous.
On wood the trick is not to use a brush but to spray on a light layer with a relatively fine spray. The droplets will cling onto the wood long enough for it to soak in. Once the first coat has soaked in the second coat is easier to apply.
Another thing to note with the water based formulation is that you will not be able apply more coats once it has dried as it will repel itself.
