Concrete sealants are used to protect the concrete and can also be used to repel stains, achieve a particular design finish or for slip resistance. Different sealants are used depending on the type of concrete finish and requirements, but generally they can be classified into penetrative sealers and surface sealers.

Penetrative Sealers

As the name suggests, penetrative sealers penetrate into the concrete substrate.  This type of sealer will not affect the surface appearance of the concrete and they are generally used to make the structure less porous, by limiting the amount of water and pollutants absorbed by the concrete.

Penetrative sealers help protect the concrete, but as they do not sit on the surface of the concrete, they will not negatively impact upon the slip resistance of the finish.

Surface Sealers

Surface sealers/ hard sealers sit on the surface of the concrete and include acrylic and polyurethane sealants (both water based and solvent based formulas are available).  There are numerous types of surface sealers and these can be used to:

  • Enhance the look of decorative concrete (e.g. polished concrete, coloured colour, exposed concrete)
  • Protect the concrete in high traffic areas
  • Protect concrete structures (e.g. concrete benches, furniture and benchtops)
  • Provide specific resistance (e.g. anti-graffiti, chlorine repellent, fuels and oil resistant)
  • Can also be mixed with additives (e.g. powdered glass or glass beads to improve grip and slip resistance of surface)

Concrete Curing

Properly curing concrete is essential to achieving a professional finish and ensuring the concrete reaches the desired strength.  Having worked on many commercial, industrial and large scale residential projects,  we are experienced in using a variety of curing compounds to meet the technical requirements of the job .
