We use a sealant from Durant. When we pour the loops, a guy follows behind and squeegees the excess off, it leaves the saw cut nice and flat. Doing this allows you to be able to spread the sealant out from high spots to low spots. When we do piezo loops, we use a sealant that more resembles a grout, it needs to be just so and we've had success with a belt grinder.
