We know that sealers can sometimes be confusing. As a result, we have listed the two categories of sealers, what they do, and a brief description of each. Included is a link to purchase or check pricing as well as a link to our evaluation or review of the product if you want to learn more.
These are concrete sealers that penetrate into the surface of the concrete and form a barrier at the subsurface. They do not change the look of bare concrete and they retain the same slip resistance when wet. Penetrating sealers are also the easiest to apply and typically the most economical solution to sealing your concrete.
Siliconate sealers are a very popular concrete sealing solution for those that require a traditional high performing sealer that protects and seals their concrete from damage. Great for garage floors, driveways, patios, and walkways.
Use PS101 for smooth troweled concrete and PS102 for rougher finishes such as walkways, patios, driveways, or broom finished concrete.
Popular for busy garage floors and workshops, this densifier sealer helps to increase the strength of your concrete and harden the surface. In addition, it aids in slowing down mild concrete dusting and water intrusion from below the surface of the concrete.
Furthermore, it has a siliconate sealer added to help seal the surface at the same time. It’s like getting two products in one application.
This penetrating sealer specializes at repelling oil and salt intrusion. It provides “Best in Class” performance that we consider a “must consideration” if resisting oil stains or salt damage is high on your priority list.
Film forming sealers are actual clear coatings that form a thin layer on the surface of the concrete or garage floor. They are the most resistant to oil stains, chemicals, salts, and more.
In addition, film forming sealers can slightly darken the color of bare concrete and will not be as slip resistant as a penetrating sealer. Lastly, they provide the easiest surface to clean and keep clean.
This is a 2 component high performing clear acrylic modified aliphatic polyurethane that is arguably one of the easiest coating to apply and does not require a lot of concrete prep like other coatings.
Designed for smooth troweled concrete, it will make cleanups a breeze and protect your garage floor from oil stains, automotive fluids, road salts, and most other potent chemicals that you can encounter in a garage environment. Furthermore, it’s highly resistant to scratching and stands up well to floor jacks, rolling tool boxes and other automotive or shop equipment.
