Concrete sealers come in many varieties. This
page will describe some of the more commonly used
applications on the market today. Many types
and brands of concrete sealers are specified, but
most are applied in similar application methods.
If you do not see your specific type or brand
indicated here, please call or e-mail us - the
chances are that we can provide and install it.
Getting the job done right!
One type of sealer fitting into the surface-film
category would be thin film epoxy coating. This sealer
provides a high durability surface film that is
effective protection on old or worn concrete surfaces.
This makes the floor easier to keep clean and resistant
to most general chemicals.
Another type of thin film sealers are acrylic
sealers that are water or solvent born. These
systems are designed to produce a semi-gloss look
and easy recoatability. The provide good
service for foot or light truck traffic.
This inexpensive type of sealers are known as
sacrificial wear surfaces and require occasional
Other types of concrete sealers falling into the
penetrating sealer class would be non-film forming
sealers. These systems penetrate surfaces of
concrete and provide dust proofing, oil and moderate
chemical repellence. Penetrating sealers work
below the concrete's surface to provide years of
Another group of non-film forming sealers known as
concrete hardeners, dust proof and increase abrasion
resistance. These systems are a great long
term solution for warehouse and production areas
because they will resist tire marking and improve
the look of concrete over time.

summary, there are numerous varieties of concrete
sealers and treatments to achieve the results you
want. Call us with your specific needs and we
will point you in the right direction. For
those who like technical information, we have a
partial list below.
Surface film Sealers
A pre-measured two component, low viscosity,
epoxy resin sealer that penetrates concrete
surfaces to completely fill pores with
minimal membrane buildup. Protect concrete
from oil penetration.
SILOSEAL WB is a low gloss, VOC-compliant,
non-yellowing, deeply penetrating protective
sealer for surfaces subjected to graffiti
and moisture penetration. SILOSEAL WB
chemically bonds with the reactive OH groups
in stone, concrete, and masonry to form a
water repellent chemical barrier that
reduces graffiti paint penetration without
significantly altering the natural
appearance of the building surface.
Dress & Seal WB & WB 30
DRESS & SEAL WB is a general purpose water
based acrylic blend cure, sealer, VOC
compliant. DRESS & SEAL WB cures, seals and
dustproofs concrete. It effectively cures
concrete and assists in proper strength
development. Resists yellowing. Very low
odor. Easy to apply.
DRESS & SEAL WB 30 is a high performance,
water based acrylic blend cure, sealer, VOC
compliant. DRESS & SEAL WB 30 cures, seals
and dustproofs concrete with a tough
impervious film, helping the concrete attain
maximum hardness. Very low odor. Resists
yellowing. Easy to apply.
COMPLIANCE: DRESS & SEAL WB - ASTM C-309,
Type 1. VOC - all states. DRESS & SEAL WB 30
- ASTM C-309, Type 1; ASTM C-1315, Grade B.

Lumiseal WB and Lumiseal WB Plus
LUMISEAL WB and LUMISEAL WB PLUS are 100%
non-yellowing, water based, high
performance, pure acrylic cure and sealing
compounds. They are designed to provide
sealing qualities that are totally resistant
to yellowing from ultraviolet exposure.
These products have low odor and are ideal
for patterned, stamped, and architectural

PETROTEX is a ready to use, quick drying,
low-odor, water-based solution containing a
new generation, invisible, and VOC compliant
blend of silane, siloxane and fluoro-polymers.
PETROTEX effectively treats concrete
pavements, driveways, commercial and
industrial building floors to resist the
penetration of water and oils. PETROTEX
penetrates into the surface, forming a long
lasting oil and water repellent barrier that
retards the penetration of these
Our newest generation of water-based,
VOC-compliant water repellents. This
reactive silane and siloxane blend
penetrates surfaces to form an invisible,
long lasting, water-repellent barrier.
Odorless and easy to apply. HYDROPEL WB is
recommended for dense and moderately porous
vertical masonry and concrete substrates.
Aquapel & Aquapel Plus
Protects concrete from the damaging effects
of water and road salts and deicing
chemicals. It is a water-based silane/siloxane
treatment that is odorless, nonflammable and
VOC compliant. AQUAPEL offers
positive chloride-ion screening, prevents
moisture intrusion, minimizes rebar
corrosion and potential concrete spalling.
Complies with all state and federal VOC
regulations. Available in two
concentrations. One coat application
recommended for most applications.
COMPLIANCE: NCHRP 244, ASTM C-672
Our "top of the line," new generation
concrete chemical hardener, densifier,
dustproofer, and sealer. SEAL HARD
hardens and seals the concrete near
surface wear zone better than any
product in its class. It prevents tire
marking and minimizes contaminant
penetration. SEAL HARD is recommended
for use on ACI Class 4, 5, and 9 (super
flat) floors, and for Class 6 industrial
floors. USDA approved. Ten year warranty
against dusting available.
A concrete hardener and dustproofer that
contains magnesium and zinc fluosilicate
solution with an anionic surfactant for deep
penetration and 100% chemical action. Five
year warranty against dusting available.
FGS Hardener Plus
A proprietary, chemical hardening solution
that is formulated to increase the wear
resistance and surface strength of concrete
floors that have been mechanically ground,
smoothed and polished. This product is a
component of the FGS PERMASHINE Floor
Rejuvenation Process. Answers the unique
demands of a flat, ground and diamond
polished floor better than any other
