Stamped Concrete Sealers/Sealants
The experts at W-SEAL can help you select the perfect sealer/sealant to protect and decorate your stamped concrete. The same sealers/sealants used at institutions such as Hilton Hotels, Dollywood, the Mall of Georgia, and the City of Dublin, Ohio are also available for your stamped concrete. There are two main categories of sealers/sealants – penetrating sealers/sealants and topical coatings (for more information see below).
Stamped Concrete Sealer/Sealants Basics
Penetrating Sealers/Sealants soak into porous concrete and masonry and create a permanent chemical reaction. They offer a flat appearance and protection that will only wear away if the substrate itself wears away below the level of sealer/sealant penetration. Penetrating sealers/sealants require porous masonry to be effective. All W-SEAL penetrating sealers/sealants will permanently bond within porous concrete and masonry to strengthen the surface, repel water (ice), oil, salt, and mold and form a moisture resistant barrier that helps prevent surface defects such as chipping, scaling, spalling and cracking, increase stain resistance and ease of cleaning, and block efflorescence with a flat appearance that does not affect traction and is breathable. Application is with pump sprayer or roller.
Topical Coatings are applied on top of concrete and masonry and can offer protection with color enhancement and wet look or gloss finish. In addition to the topical coatings listed below we offer topical coatings in gloss or matte finish, clear, translucent color, opaque color and with enhanced capabilities to resist oil, grease, gasoline, salt, urine and other harsh contaminants.
